As your business grows, it also changes. Adding or relocating employees – or even physical relocation office is simply a matter of course in a successful modern business. Moves, Adds and Changes (MAC) to communications systems can be both disruptive and expense. Most inter-company IT groups are overburdened with routine day-to-day activities. So why not let GTS take care of it?
Backbone cabling systems refers to the process of providing interconnections between telecommunication and equipment rooms. Installation includes backbone cables, intermediate and main cross-connects, mechanical terminations, and patch cords or jumpers used for backbone-to-backbone cross-connections. The backbone can also extend between buildings.
Some points specified for the backbone cabling subsystem include:
- Equipment connections to backbone cabling should be made with cable lengths of 30m (98 ft.) or less.
- The backbone cabling shall be configured in a star topology. Each horizontal cross-connect is connected directly to a main cross-connect or to an intermediate cross-connect, then to a main cross-connect.
- The backbone is limited to no more than two hierarchical levels of cross-connects (main and intermediate). No more than one cross-connect may exist between a main and a horizontal cross-connect and no more than three cross-connects may exist between any two horizontal cross-connects.
- A total maximum backbone distance of 90m (295 ft.) is specified for high bandwidth capability over copper. This distance is for uninterrupted backbone runs. (No intermediate cross-connect).
- The distance between the terminations in the entrance facility and the main cross-connect shall be documented and should be made available to the service provider.
- Recognized media may be used individually or in combination, as required by the installation. Quantity of pairs and fibers needed in individual backbone runs depends on the area served.
GTS installs and terminates twenty-five, and / or fifty, and /or 100 unshielded twisted pairs, 24 gauge, solid copper, to either M66 blocks or 110 blocks.
Cable television is a system of providing television to consumers via radio frequency signals transmitted to televisions through fixed optical fibers or coaxial cables. This method differs from the over-the-air method used in traditional television broadcasting (via radio waves) in which a television antenna was required or, more recently, a digital ATSC tuner. Cable TV service providers may also offer radio (FM) programming, high-speed internet, telephony, and similar non-television services.
As the name implies, Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is a system in which the circuit is closed and all the elements are directly connected. This is unlike broadcast television where any receiver that is correctly tuned can pick up the signal from the airwaves. Probably the most widely known use of CCTV is in security systems and such applications as retail shops, banks, government establishments, etc. The true scope for applications is almost unlimited – from monitoring traffic on a bridge – to aerial photography from a hot air balloon. GTS installs CCTV video surveillance systems to meet your budget requirements.
A conference room must be strategically designed so that the meeting leader effectively relays his / her message to his audience. Depending on the information shared and the audience size, there are many types of set-ups. The most common conference room set-up styles are:
|Auditorium – Participants are seated in rows of chairs with no writing surface in front of them.|
|Board Room – Participants are seated around a rectangular boardroom table.|
|Classroom – Participants all face the front of the meeting room with table or desk in front of them.|
|Cluster – Participants are seated in groups within the meeting-room. Each group can be designated as a team or can be from a specific department.|
|Hollow Square – Participants are seated in a Hollow Square|
|Octagon – Similar to Hollow Square, participants are seated around tables arranged in an octagon. Seating arrangement allows for each participant to view any of the other participants.|
|U Shape – Participants are seated in a ‘U’ shape. The open end of the ‘U’ is situated at the front of the meeting room and provides a suitable location for the presenter. Participants are provided with a table or desk for taking notes.|

Category 5, the most basic is available in two varieties:
- Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP), the type widely used in the United States, and
- Screened Twisted Pair (SCTP), which has shielding to provide a measure of extra protection against interference, but is rarely used outside of Europe
Cables belonging to Category 5 are either solid or stranded: Solid Cat 5 is more rigid, and the better choice if data needs to be transmitted over a long distance, while Stranded Cat 5 is very flexible and most likely to be used as patch cable. Cat 5 cable can support 10 or 100 Mbps Ethernet, and has a capability of up to 100MHz.
Category 5e uses the same lines as basic Cat 5, but it fulfills higher standards of data transmission. While Cat 5 is common in older cabling systems, Category 5e has almost entirely replaced it in new installations. Cat 5e can handle data transfer at 1000 Mbps, is suitable for Gigabit Ethernet, and experiences much lower levels of near-end crosstalk (NEXT) than Cat 5.
Category 6 is the most advanced DATA cabling option and it, hands-down, provides the best performance. Just like Cat 5 and Cat 5e, Cat 6 cable is typically made up of four twisted pairs of copper wire, but its capabilities far exceed those of other cable types because of one particular structural difference: a longitudinal separator. This separator isolates each of the four pairs of twisted wire from the others, which reduces crosstalk, allows for faster data transfer, and gives Category 6 cable twice the bandwidth of Cat 5!
Cat 6 cable is ideal for supporting 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and is able to operate at up to 250 MHz. Since technology and standards are constantly evolving, Cat 6 is the wisest choice of cable when taking any possible future updates to your network into consideration. Not only is Category 6 cable future-safe, it is also backward-compatible with any previously-existing Cat 5 and Cat 5e cabling found in older installations.

In telecommunications, a demarc extension refers to the transmission path originating from the interface of the access provider’s side of a telecommunications circuit demarcation point within a premise and ending at the termination point prior to the interface of the edge Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). This may include in-segment equipment, media converters and patch cords as required to complete the circuit’s transmission path to the edge CPE.
A demarc extension can also be referred to as inside wiring, extended demarc, circuit extension, CPE cabling and riser cabling.
In general, fiber optic cable can be installed with many of the same techniques used with conventional copper cables. GTS will:
- Conduct a thorough site survey prior to cable placement.

A Wireless Home Theater or Entertainment system can be used to describe something as basic as a set of wireless surround sound speakers – to an advanced solution that incorporates wireless home networking – and there’s a lot in between.
Let’s explore some of the available wireless options for your home theater system:
The most common wireless product available for home theater is wireless surround sound speakers. Don’t, however, let the term “wireless” mislead you. For a speaker to function properly, it must have two types of signals. First, the speaker needs to have access to an audio signal, the music or movie soundtrack (via electrical impulses). Second, the speaker must have a physical connection to an amplifier (powered by battery or AC power outlet) to actually produce the sound. In other words, though you’ve eliminated the long wires that would typically connect from the signal source, such as a stereo or home theater receiver, in order for it to actually produce sound; you still need to connect the “wireless” speaker to its own power source. In the current market, wireless speaker technology can be purchased in an “all-in-one” home theater-in-a-box system, but Neosonik? has developed a complete high-end home theater system concept that uses wireless technology for all of its major components: Pre-amp /Processor, Speakers and Video Display.
Surround Sound The applications of surround sound have grown tremendously. It no longer encompasses just movies. Digital TV broadcasts and high-fidelity music, too, has evolved to take advantage of the dramatically intensified experience that multi-channel audio can provide. Both literally and figuratively, surround sound adds a vibrant, new dimension to home entertainment. There are so many noteworthy advantages you don’t want to overlook . . . so let GTS get you up to speed:
- Surround for movies
For most surround systems, the primary objective is to replicate, as closely as possible, the traditional brick & mortar cinema experience within the comfort of your own home (minus the crying babies and rude patrons with cell phones, of course). The most common surround formats for movies are:
- 5.1-channel movie formats
- 6.1-channel “extended surround” formats
- 7.1-channel surround
- HDTV surround sound
That’s right – HD isn’t just for your eyes – it’s also for your ears! The visual advantages of HDTV are so “easy to see,” that it’s easy to forget that HDTV offers even more improvement over our current TV viewing experience. HDTV can broadcast riveting 5.1-channel Dolby Digital surround sound. So now the news, your favorite prime-time shows, concerts and sporting events can benefit from the enhanced realism of Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.
- Surround for music
Enough about movies – let us not forget that multichannel audio offers the promise of a greatly enhanced listening experience for music, as well. While there are music discs producing both the Dolby Digital and DTS technologies detailed in the section above, the most thrilling advances in multichannel music come courtesy of two high-resolution surround formats dedicated solely to musical applications: 1) Super Audio CD (SACD) or 2) DVD-Audio
- Hybrid surround solutions
As enthusiasm for home theater has spread, more and more people are replacing their old 2-channel stereo systems with full multichannel systems. Hybrid surround solutions expand the usage options of multichannel systems to enhance the experience of stereo music, analog TV broadcasts and other 2-channel media.
Do you need to monitor a loved one during the night? Or know when the baby is awake?
If so, a wireless intercom system is a great choice. Most intercom systems require dedicated, room-to-room wiring to work properly. These systems are commonly found in businesses or homes with built-in security systems. GTS recommends the Westinghouse Novi? Wireless intercom. This system uses your home’s existing electrical wiring to send the signal from monitor to monitor. Using household wiring improves the range of the signal between monitors – allowing you to talk to someone from up to 1,500 feet away!
For security and facility industry professionals, IP-based security applications have been hailed as the future, and subsequently, they continue to significant amounts of market share. There are two different types of cameras that can be used in this kind of installation: centralized or decentralized IP cameras. GTS can design and install IP video surveillance systems that not only record, but can be viewed live over the internet from anywhere in the world!
Do you remember the bad, old days of overhead projectors and transparencies? GTS does – but this method of presentation is going the way of the dinosaur. As the cost of table-top video projection units becomes more affordable, many companies are purchasing these units and thoroughly enjoying the ease-of-use technology.
Installing a projector on the ceiling can be somewhat tricky. It can be as simple as attaching the mounting plate to the extension pole and attaching the pole to the support structure – but based on the ceiling and building infrastructure, it can often a little more, shall we say, creativity. GTS can walk you through the basics of ceiling mounting: ceiling type, mount type, projector model and throw distance. Addressing these different issues will help you determine how best to approach your ceiling-mount situation.
- Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP), the type widely used in the United States, and
- Screened Twisted Pair (SCTP), which has shielding to provide a measure of extra protection against interference, but is rarely used outside of Europe.
Category 5e – CAT-5e is formally called ANSI/TIA/EIA 568A-5 or simply Cat-5e ( the e stands for ‘enhanced’). CAT-5e is completely backward compatible with current CAT-5 equipment. The enhanced electrical performance of CAT-5e ensures that the cable will support applications that require additional bandwidth, such as gigabit Ethernet or analog videoSame as Cat5, except that it is made to somewhat more stringent standards (see comparison chart below). The Cat5e standard is now officially part of the 568A standard. Minimum Cat5e cable is recommended for all new installations, patch cords and Ethernet cables.
Both CAT-5 and CAT-5e have 100 ohm impedance and electrical characteristics supporting transmissions up to 100 MHz. The differences between CAT-5 and CAT-5e show in all aspects of performance: capacitance, frequency, resistance, attenuation, and NEXT. CAT-5e components were designed with high-speed gigabit Ethernet in mind. While CAT-5 components may function to some degree in a gigabit Ethernet, they perform below standard during high-data transfer scenarios. CAT-5e cables work with ATM and gigabit speed products. Simply, if you are using a 100Mbps switch, get CAT-5e cable instead of CAT-5.
Category 6 – is the most advanced DATA cabling option and it, hands-down, provides the best performance. Just like Cat 5 and Cat 5e, Cat 6 cable is typically made up of four twisted pairs of copper wire, but its capabilities far exceed those of other cable types because of one particular structural difference: a longitudinal separator. This separator isolates each of the four pairs of twisted wire from the others, which reduces crosstalk, allows for faster data transfer, and gives Category 6 cable twice the bandwidth of Cat 5! Cat 6 cable is ideal for supporting 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and is able to operate at up to 250 MHz. Since technology and standards are constantly evolving, Cat 6 is the wisest choice of cable when taking any possible future updates to your network into consideration. Not only is Category 6 cable future-safe, it is also backward-compatible with any previously-existing Cat 5 and Cat 5e cabling found in older installations.
Different types of cable:
- UTP stands for Unshielded Twisted Pair. It is a cable type with pairs of twisted insulated copper conductors contained in a single sheath. UTP cables are the most common type of cabling used in desktop communications applications.
- tranded cable has several small gauge wires in each separate insulation sleeve. Stranded cable is more flexible, making it more suitable for shorter distances, such as patch cords.
- Solid has one larger gauge wire in each sleeve. Solid cable has better electrical performance than stranded cable and is traditionally used for inside walls and through ceilings – any type of longer run of cable
- Patch cables are made of stranded copper conductors for flexibility. This construction is great for the flexing and the frequent changes that occur at the wall outlet or patch panel. The stranded conductors do not transmit data signals as far as solid cable. The TIA/EIA 568A which is the governing standard regarding commercial cabling systems limits the length of patch cables to 10 meters in total length. Does that mean you can’t use stranded cable for longer runs? Not at all, we’ve seen installations running stranded cable over 100 feet with no problems – it’s just not recommended.
A network hub is a computer networking device that connects network segments. The network switch, packet switch (usually just referred to as a switch) plays an integral part in most Ethernet local area networks (LANs). Mid-to-large sized LANs contain a number of linked managed switches. Small or home office applications typically use a single switch, or an all-purpose converged device such as a gateway access home broadband services such as DSL router or cable Wi-Fi router. In these scenarios, typically the end-user device contains a router and components that interface to the particular physical broadband technology, as in Linksys 8-port and 48-port devices. These kinds of user devices might also include a telephone interface for VoIP.
Network infrastructure refers to the underlying system of cabling, hubs, phone lines, switches, routers and other devices that connect various parts of an organization through a Wide Area Network (WAN). The grouping of physical hardware and components needed for the network will typically have these common features:
- Routing and switching capabilities
- Network security
- Access control
If a sound network infrastructure is in place, users can quickly and efficiently connect people and information throughout their organization and beyond to. WANs usually have security measures that prevent external third parties from accessing information within the WAN without a password and / or personal identification number. A key function of a WAN is to connect Local Area Networks (LANs). The LAN connects all users within that building to one local network. By connecting the LAN to a WAN, all LAN users gain access to others in the enterprise and to the electronic world beyond the network.
GTS can design your data system to maximize the use of:
- Cable Raceway
- Backbone Copper & Fiber Cabling
- Fiber Tray

Before considering an OTA HD antenna, you should, first, visit http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx. Once you enter your address, you’ll see a list of local stations.
The recent switch to digital TV broadcasting has eliminated the most annoying picture distortions — snow and ghosting — that made analog off-air reception so hit-or-miss. With digital TV signals (both standard-definition and high-definition), you’ll either see a crisp, ghost-free picture or no picture at all. Because most local and syndicated programming is not high-definition, it’s typical for local stations to broadcast their digital signals in standard-definition during the day, then switch to full widescreen HDTV during primetime.
Even if you’ve never used an off-air antenna before, consider these factors:
- Local digital TV broadcasts are everywhere.
- Over-the-air digital reception provides the best picture quality!
- Over-the-air antennas provide access to all your local channels AND out-of-town channels.
- Best of all, over-the-air signals are free!
A patch panel (or patch bay) is a panel used to house cable connections. Patch panels are convenient because they allow for quick change of the path of select signals, without the expense of dedicated switching equipment. Patch panels make it easier to connect different devices in different orders for different projects, because all of the changes can be made at the patch panels. As well, patch panels make it easier to troubleshoot problems such as ground loops; even small home studios and amateur project studios often use patch panels, because it groups all of the input jacks into one location. Patch bays may be half-normal, full-normal or normal. Call GTS to let us help determine your patch panel needs!
PoE technology refers to a system used to safely pass electrical power, along with data, on Ethernet cabling. PoE requires Category 5 cable or higher for high power levels, but can operate with Category 3 cable for lower power levels. Power can come from a power supply within a PoE-enabled networking device such as an Ethernet switch or from a device built for “injecting” power onto the Ethernet cabling. Give GTS a call to discuss your PoE needs.
GTS offers pre-wire and post-wire planning and installation.
As low voltage technology changes and grows, we’ve “kept the pace” by hands on training and application of new installation methods and products.

Are you happy with your old cables, but they need a little minor “tweaking” or upgrades?
GTS can do it. We can take long interconnects or speaker wire and cut them up into shorter lengths to make multiple pairs. We have all kinds of termination types for all cable types. We can cover cables with new braiding so that they look new while having the benefit of being broken in.
But what if you’re looking for a custom job with difficult connections? That’s okay – we do it all. Just give GTS a call!
One of the many advantages of satellite TV is that it broadcasts throughout your home or to allow multiple rooms to share the same satellite picture. The disadvantage of satellite TV is that while satellite quality broadcast can give high resolution and picture quality – it does NOT guarantee superior reception. That’s because satellites must be properly positioned for superb viewing. A poorly installed satellite dish can make you pine for cable or even bunny-ear antennas! Angle, height and component quality are critical to achieving the best possible performance from your satellite dish.
A professional installation will guarantee a properly positioned satellite dish. Our technicians will survey your home – including the roofline and natural barriers, such as trees, to determine the best placement. GTS offers a complete turnkey installation – after we’re done, all you have to do is sit back, relax and watch the highest quality TV available anywhere.
GTS offers IP Video Surveillance systems installation, but if you’re looking for a more affordable solution, GTS also offers self-monitored security systems. These systems will sound an alarm and dial up to five (5) preset phone numbers to let you know motion has been detected or a door/window has been opened. A standard phone line is all that is required. Call GTS to set up installation today. Service Description.
During our current recession, it’s more important than ever to keep your operational costs low. Controlling operational costs is always a challenge, but the current recession makes budgets tighter than ever. It’s always possible to make smart choices and cut expenditures to spend less – but the one thing most companies can’t do without is a reliable server and a cool, secure room in which to keep it. In today’s technologically advanced world, it’s practically impossible to run a successful business without a solid network infrastructure – and server rooms are the nerve centers of these businesses. Despite its vital importance, however, a server room doesn’t have to break the bank.
Structured cabling refers to building or campus telecommunications cabling infrastructure that consists of a number of standardized smaller elements called subsystems.
Structured cabling falls into six subsystems:
- Entrance Facilities where the building interfaces with the outside world.
- Equipment Rooms hosting equipment which serve the users inside the building.
- Telecommunications Rooms that house telecommunication equipment which connect the backbone and the horizontal cabling subsystems.
- Backbone Cabling which connects between the entrance facilities, equipment rooms and telecommunications rooms.
- Horizontal Cabling that provides a connection between telecommunications rooms and individual outlets or work areas on the floor.
GTS skilled professionals can help you with all your structured cabling needs!

The most common surround formats for movies are:
- 5.1-channel movie formats
- 6.1-channel “extended surround” formats

HDTV surround sound That’s right – HD isn’t just for your eyes – it’s also for your ears! The visual advantages of HDTV are so “easy to see,” that it’s easy to forget that HDTV offers even more improvement over our current TV viewing experience. HDTV can broadcast riveting 5.1-channel Dolby Digital surround sound. So now the news, your favorite prime-time shows, concerts and sporting events can benefit from the enhanced realism of Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.

Hybrid surround solutions expand the usage options of multichannel systems to enhance the experience of stereo music, analog TV broadcasts and other 2-channel media.
Are you moving your office?
Well why not let GTS alleviate some of the stress by letting us move your telecommunication systems, allowing you to focus on other aspects of the move, while confident in the knowledge that everything else is “firmly in hand.”
GTS will develop a plan, consisting of these five stages:
- Analyze – A GTS relocation specialist will meet with you to analyze the current system and determine your needs. The specialist will also then visit the new site.
- Plan – You will then receive a detailed plan and timeline of 1) what needs to be done 2) when and 3) by whom. GTS can coordinate relocation of your telephone system, coordinate the voice and data wiring of your new space, including the selection and ordering of all telecommunication services. GTS can also create a detailed time and cost budget for all work.
- Move – Our professional staff of technicians will monitor the move by making sure equipment is properly staged, packed, labeled, moved and reinstalled properly.
- Test – All network equipment will be set up and tested by a trained GTS technician to ensure all systems are configured and working properly before your first day of operation.
- Go Live – The GTS technician assigned to your project will remain on site for as long as necessary to ensure a smooth transition and to quickly resolve any problems that may arise after the move.
GTS can offer advice on connecting lines, cabling, re-programming your phones. We also offer cost-effective solutions for dealing with legacy phone systems.
If you’re looking for a telephone / data wiring technician, GTS can help. GTS provides complete telephone wiring services for installation of new phone systems, relocation of existing phone systems or simply adding a new extension. Our certified technicians can ensure that you have noise-free lines and trouble-free communications. Remember, telephone wires carry electric current, so for safety and peace of mind, just call a qualified GTS professional!
Cable Testing and Certification are, arguably, the most important steps in cable installation. Today’s super-fast Ethernet transmission speeds challenge all cabling systems – so it’s critical that all components be completely and thoroughly tested. Simply plugging the equipment together and verifying that “it works” is not adequate. Certification is especially important because it’s cost effective: it eliminates the future need for expensive upgrades to your cabling system when as networking technologies advance.
GTS can provide trouble-shooting and diagnostics on any wiring components.

Businesses are gradually beginning to move from traditional copper-wire telephone systems to VoIP systems because of the excellent bandwidth efficiency – add to that the lower costs and you’ve got a winning combination!
VoIP devices typically have simple, intuitive user interfaces. This means the users can often make simple system configuration changes. Dual-mode cell phones enable users to continue their conversations as they move between an outside cellular service and an internal Wi-Fi network, making it no longer necessary to carry both a desktop phone and a cell phone. Business VoIP solutions are a kind of “unified communications” service. It treats all communications—phone calls, faxes, voice mail, e-mail, Web conferences and more—as discrete units that can all be delivered via any means and to any handset, including cell phones.
VoIP runs both voice and data communications over a single network, which can significantly reduce infrastructure costs. The prices of extensions on VoIP are lower than for PBXs and key systems. VoIP switches run on commodity hardware, such as PCs or Linux systems. Rather than closed architectures, these devices rely on standard interfaces. Why not give GTS a call to determine whether VOIP is a viable option for you?
Along with residential wiring services, GTS also offers network wiring services for commercial office buildings and warehouse wiring.
The most common type of network connection is a wired connection. While wireless networks offer flexibility for portable computers, wired networks offer unbeatable performance, reliability, and security. Some folks might have you believe that setting up a wired network is so simple that anyone can do it. But keep in mind, a professional installer is familiar with EIA / TIA standards, local wiring and electrical codes, and making custom cables. Hiring a network cabling professional guarantees a neat, professional job – sloppy cabling is more apt to deteriorate over time, harder to manage, and poses more of a fire risk.
So remember, wired networking IS simple – as simple as picking up the phone and calling GTS!
A wireless access point (WAP) is a device that allows wired communication devices to connect to a wireless network using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or related standards. The WAP connects to a router and relays data between the wireless devices (ie computers or printers) and wired devices on the network.
GTS provides a plethora of wireless installations. You’ve probably heard that wireless installations are easy – but before you attempt to tackle this job, do your research and be aware: Not all wireless is created equal, therefore, you must be sure to choose the right component for the job.
If you decide to call a contractor, you’ll also want to keep in mind that some companies specialize in indoor installations, while others focus primarily on outdoor installations. There are major differences between an indoor installation and an outdoor installation. We perform indoor and outdoor wireless installations with a wide range of high quality antennas such as Cisco, Motorola, Tranzeo and Deliberant.
With regards to wireless installations, you must remember that, unlike cable, there are no rules and paths to follow – so the signals are free to roam. Because of this, the need for site surveys is critical. Site surveys tell us if any RF interference exists that could potentially affect the signal and connectivity strength of the installation. Not many companies do this – and more importantly, not many companies know how to do this? Give GTS a call when you’re ready for a wireless installation.
Office cubicle and workstation wiring must be designed properly to prevent overloading of cubicle and workstation wiring. If the components are not properly balanced, problems arise. We have tons of solutions to choose from – our cable management solutions include Cable Raceways, Cinch Straps, Nylon Wire Ties, Crimping tools, Cat6 Patch Panels, CAT6 Patch Cables and more!
