Wind Circle has been providing structured cabling services going back to 1995.
The basis for a great computer network starts with the design and installation. We have BICSI-certified technicians on staff that specialize in providing the latest greatest network design.
As with anything in technology today, it is extremely important that you are forward-thinking in your design and allow for future growth.

Copper cabling is most commonly referred to as Cat 5, Cat 6, etc. Copper cabling is most commonly used to run from each device (computer, printer) back to the MDF (main distribution facility). The Cat 5 drops have a plug in that appears to be a large telephone plug in. This end will plug directly in to most network cards on a computer or peripheral device on your network. Copper can be used for both voice and data.
Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cabling is most commonly used when large amounts of voice and data need to be transferred over greater distances.
Corning Corporation produces about 60% of all the fiber cable in the world. Wind Circle technicians are certified and trained to install Corning fiber optic cable.
Fiber is most commonly used to run voice and data between buildings or between LAN’s (Local Area Networks) creating a WAN (Wide Area Network) in a large building complexes.
Coaxial cable is the kind of copper cable used by cable TV companies between the community antenna and the home/business users. Coax is sometimes used by telephone companies from their central office to the telephone poles near users. It is also widely installed for business networks and other types of local area networks (LANs).
Coaxial cable is called "coaxial" because it includes one physical channel that carries the signal, a layer of insulation, then another concentric physical channel that is the ground. Both channels run along the same axis. To carry information a great distance, multiple cables or pairs of coaxial tubes are placed in a single outer sheathing.
Normally site surveys are provided to the customer free of charge. A site survey involves a Wind Circle technician going on a walk through with the customer to identify customer needs. After the site survey the customer will be provided a detailed quote that will list all materials and labor need to perform the cabling project.
After a site survey is performed a detailed cost proposal can be provided usually free of charge. In effect the cost proposal as we call it becomes your network design. The cost proposal will outline materials needed, location of materials and equipment, and the cost of the labor to install the system. Each situation is different and terms of the cost proposal will be determined on a case by case basis.
