Cabling the cruise ships

With just about every ship now having the latest “IT” and the more important systems must be installed to the highest standards, we can deliver the control needed, so your Ethernet cables are not 575ft long (175 meters) untested and expected to last for the next 10 years.

Many dry dock and new builds have shown, that just getting the cables pulled is not the answer, and we understand the difficulties in working on cruise ships and the cable pullers that try to avoid the fire penetration or correct installation, we know and our list is very long.

We provide onsite project management with catch solutions to make sure we don’t just check the box on a spreadsheet, but we look in the ceiling and check the installations for quality and specification.

For many years now lots of dry dock contractors use staff with little or no knowledge of working with the high-tech cabling methods that are needed these days. The one line we don’t like or use is “it will work” Low Voltage data communications now is a high tech job, with lots of training and understanding how to do it right, or you the customer will have errors and a slow network.

We use real technicians, not any foreign low-cost worker who has no other skills besides turning up, many times we would catch them cheating, in fact, once we knew something was up in the ceiling, when we checked it out later that night, we found one Cat5/e cut and spliced into two runs in the bar area. The following day the staff captain was informed and dealt with the problem and of course, we fixed it.

Even pulling the cable now is a complex job with things that the ship engineers would find hard to understand like no zip tie’s the cable, loose lay cabling, and bundle max limits.

All this along with the cruise ship’s extra requirements makes our consulting service a natural requirement for the network and safety of the ship. The days of just letting guys pull cable are gone, modern Cat6/7+ cables have to be treated like fiber during installation.

We can check all the above for you from your design to installation and your cruise ship network cabling which will give you the best trouble-free network, we guarantee with our cruise ship network consulting and testing your network will be the best on the high sea’s.
