Mascot adopted CAT 6 cabling
at its Bangalore facilities for two reasons:
- Mascot's servers and application
requirements are bandwidth intensive. These requirements
increase as technologies mature. Being a technology
company, it deals with the latest hardware and software
which need a high-speed network.
- Multiple services including
voice, data and images are transmitted on the same
Mascot is using the CAT 6 network for various applications
including data (Web-based and client-server), voice
(Unified Voice Mailing system, analog and digital voice)
and images (Fax, Videoconferencing).
The network was designed using
local expertise. Around 120 kilometres of CAT 6 cabling
have been laid. In addition, armoured fiber cable has
been used for 1.3 kilometres. Mascot has invested US$
125,000 for deploying CAT 6. It took approximately four
months to complete the installation.
