Cabling Installer's Past Performance:

Building Evaluation and Costs:

Greg Wilkoff, owner of Adept Networks stated, "a structured cabling plan is essential when implementing a business communications system. This design will accommodate heating, cooling, data speed as well as future maintenance and expansion. The lack of a structured cabling design can make future IT equipment repairs and essential business updates quite costly and unnecessary."
Cabling Installer's Certifications:
