    • Cabling That Delivers

      Here at 3M we understand that Education networks are among the most challenging and complex found anywhere involving large numbers of users, high volumes of traffic and a myriad of applications, often across dispersed campus sites. So the structured cabling system that underpins the smooth-running of any education network has to work hard, perform well and be totally reliable. Against this, education network managers have to deal with the tight budgets typical of the academic world, so they want cabling systems that will be fit for purpose not just today, but are flexible and scalable in the future.

      The 3M range of structured cabling solutions gives the education market and its network suppliers a robust set of solutions that can grow and adapt while delivering consistent high performance. From Category 5e through to Category 6A and support for all major fibre standards, 3M has a comprehensive range of options that can be adapted to suit the budget and specification of each project. Locally held stock ensures rapid delivery while the innovative design of the 3M range means that on-site work can be completed quickly and efficiently. Whether the installation is Category 5e66A or increasingly, high-speed fibre – the 3M systems are all backed by a 25 year guarantee and compliance with industry standards ensuring education networks’ superior performance and long-lasting reliability for years to come.
