Data Cabling

Your structured cabling system provides the critical foundation for your business. The caliber and performance of your Information Systems and the networks they run on, can mean the difference between success and failure in today’s competitive business environment.

Our structured cabling systems provide outstanding performance, reliability, manageability, and a potential for growth. Compute carry out structured cabling installations for commercial customers throughout South Africa. We install both data & voice cabling using highly-experienced and trained staff.

Our main focus is the installation of unshielded category 5e and category 6 cabling solutions although Compute can provide fibre installations if that is a requirement. All data cabling works are fully specified at the outset, performed in full accordance with prevailing standards and certified after completion.

We can install the following cabling solutions for you:

– Category 5e Structured Cabling
– Category 6 Structured Cabling
– Shielded Category 5e and Category 6 Installations
– Multimode Fibre Optic cabling
– Telephone cabling

We have the knowledge to get your cabling in place and working correctly from installation. At the offset of a new install, Compute’s experienced cabling installers will work with you to confirm data point locations, cable routing and comms-room presentation locations. We have performed installations in new buildings as well as existing (including warehouses and small office units through to new corporate headquarters buildings, Schools, FET’s, universities and hotels), so no matter the place we have the solution. All outlet faceplates are labelled with correct and valid numbering for ease of identification and troubleshooting, and we can also provide a map of the locations of each outlet we have installed to your premises if required.

The cabling products we use from various cabling suppliers have been found to be the most reliable for our installation work. Compute can also provide data cabinets from a range of manufacturers. We are also able to undertake repairs to cabling where required and are experienced in re-patching works, including providing full documentation, having carried such work out for many of our existing clients at this time.


With countless mobile devices and endpoints attaching to enterprise networks and wi-fi traffic already surpassing that on wire in many organisations, compute can provide wireless infrastructure that supports the rapidly-growing volume of voice, data, video, users, devices, and applications.

Users are demanding wireless services on par (or better than) those on wired connections, compute can deliver solutions that are secure, adaptable, manageable, cost-effective, scalable and available everywhere.

Wireless networks have become mission-critical, with wireless infrastructure now the primary — and even default — avenue for keeping business moving.

VoIP Telephony and Data Connectivity

Maintaining communications with your customers and business partners is pivotal to operations. Delivering a high-performance, cost-effective and feature-rich IP telephony and data connectivity solution to support your business model will enable you to realise the commercial benefits of an ‘always-on’ business.

Whatever your needs, Compute will advise and support you throughout the integration of an IP telephony or Data Connectivity solution that offers the functionality required for your business.

Wed and mail

We understand how important your Web presence is and also the necessity for your email to flow in and out to ensure essential communication is maintained.

To provide you with that vital element at Compute we are able to offer you Hosting Services for both your email and web portals, as well as registration and ongoing maintenance of your registered Domain names so that you don’t have to worry about their renewal or being taken away from you. We can then link these to your website and can offer Database or CMS (customer management services) services if required.

Hardware installs and upgrades

Understanding when a customer needs to upgrade their IT systems is a key feature within Compute. Working with the latest Desktop and Server Software and Hardware can improve a business’s productivity and Compute can help with the migration from older, unsupported systems to the current Technology available, as well as Microsoft Windows 8 and Office 2013 platforms.

Compute will work with you to design the look and feel of your desktop environment, including any business specific customization, pre-install all software that is consistent to all users, and then take a snapshot of the machine for deploying to all machines. By using this imaging solution we can ensure that all systems are installed and built to the same specification and reduce the deployment time of a PC from the hours it can take to complete all the individual software installations through to minutes to install a full system.

By creating a standard image file for your business, any new systems that are brought in will be configured in an efficient and consistent manner with the rest of the desktop infrastructure. In the event of a machine failing, the imaging solution can deploy a new standard build back to the desktop in a matter of minutes, reducing the overall downtime to the user and keeping productivity as high as possible.

Compute has proven experience in desktop replacement rollouts, and can pre-build and store pre-configured desktop systems in our workshop environment ready for deployment to customer premises.

The same practices can also be applied to Server architecture and again we are able to offer you the latest to ensure that you are receiving a robust product with a long-term, manufacturer-backed warranty for peace of mind over the life of the product in your business. We will work with you before any order is placed to ensure that the server specification meets your business needs, both for now and the next phase of your business development.

If there are other products that you are interested in working with, at Compute we can also offer an installation service for Printers, Networking equipment, desktop peripherals and a wide range of backup devices, so you can be assured that whatever your IT requirement is we have the ability to install this for you to your specifications and within your required timeframes.

Software installations and configurations

Each business is different and has differing needs for the software that they use within their environment and we realize that running the wrong software for your requirements can lead to more problems than it can solve.

Capturing your needs for a product accurately will ensure that the sourcing of software products delivers the right solution to you first time and then as the product is installed throughout your business you need to know that it is going to work reliably and efficiently at all times.

At Compute we will work with you to identify your software requirements and then act as the bridge between the software manufacturers and yourself to ensure that products are sourced correctly and introduced to your environment with minimal interference so that you can continue to operate whilst applications are installed around you. Our installations team will plan the best approach for a new product’s introduction with you and then install to the agreed schedule, making sure each client is working as you would expect every step of the way.
