Category 3 Cable
BOSCOM stock and supply a comprehensive range of Category 3 cable and provide a full suite of componentry for your voice installation.
Category 3 is rated at 1-16MHz frequency bandwidth to support voice applications for plain old telephone services (POTS) which adopted the twisted pair and high pair count cabling much earlier than LAN’s and PC’s.
The demand on technology has grown exponentially since Category 3 was established and many applications now require higher bandwidth frequencies and speeds, however Category 3 and voice products are still being installed in environments such as large offices and organisations where there is no designated IP address for voice signals.
Any number of designated telephone lines can be created for homes, businesses or large organisations, and managed using a PABX system.
Smaller installations of a cat3 voice solution will only need the required number of Cat3 unshielded twisted pairs for telephone lines and supporting componentry such as back mount frames, earthing modules, and disconnect modules; possibly a PBX system too if the user wishes to manage the lines. Larger organisations who want the flexibility of using patch cords can use PABX systems and house voice panels and 24 port patch panels in 19” racking units so all phone lines can be organised, accessible and patched out to their designated field outlets.
