Structured Cabling Systems – Cable Once©
Scope iCom are a recognised and respected leader in the Structured Cabling field. Our experience blends technology with environment, allowing us not only design, supply, install and commission the solution but also to ensure your investment is protected.
We install systems from the top manufacturers like Brandrex, Commscope, Panduit and Excel across all platforms from Category 5E to Category 8. Our systems include Fibre Optic Cabling, the backbone for POL applications, and multi core in traditional telephony infrastructures.
Our cabling designs factor cost, longevity, performance, building structure and business case. Our designers consult on vendor independent solutions tailored to meet our clients individual and at times unique requirements under the “Cable Once©” banner to ensure procedural adherence and standards compliance across all our partner offerings.
All our work is fully project managed from concept to go live, all our systems are installed to the highest standards of excellence and all our work is fully guaranteed.
Data Centre Design
Building a Data Centre requires detailed planning informed by an intimate knowledge of the technologies that drive efficiency, performance and longevity. Scope iCom have invested in training our people to the latest standards and this together with years of experience places us in the unique position to be able to assist our clients from initial discussion to realisation. Together with our partners we have designed and installed Data Centres for our clients both in Ireland and throughout Europe. While our primary focus is in the structured cabling field we make it our business to work with the multidisciplinary team that such projects necessitate and in so doing we are part of the process that ensures the smooth and timely delivery of modern Data Centres. If you are an architect designing a building, or an IT manager tasked with planning your infrastructure we can assist you in ensuring that the IT design will exceed your requirements and the Equipment Room you employ is fit for purpose. The standard that offers minimum size requirements and recommendations for Equipment Rooms (ERs) is known as ANSI/TIA-569-B-2004, Commercial Building Standard for Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces.
Scope iCom install and support both legacy Telephony and IP Telephony solutions. Our solutions range from localised to Cloud based, from remote office to the Enterprise.Years of experience in the telephony sector enables us to protect and prolong your investment in legacy technology while you budget, integrate and implement IP Telephony going forward.Our experience in data networking allows us to consult on how best to approach your telephony needs across wired, wireless and indeed computer integrated systems.With our partners we can advise you on what wide area connectivity solutions will enable you to make significant savings to your telephony budget and maximise your productivity.
We live in a time of disruptive technology. It is said that the jobs people will do in the next 20 years do not exist today. iCom are primarily a technologies company with a focus on assurance. We believe in providing leading edge rather than bleeding edge solutions, solutions that are built for the future and guarantee the present.Our strength lies in our technical ability, our vision, our creativity; all coupled with sensible, invested and grounded wisdom. In the spirit of innovation we thrive on invention but we are always customer focused and nothing that has not been tried, tested and proven garners our support.Innovations such as LiFi are gaining traction. The technology has been around for some time and in future RF saturated environments it is set to provide a viable, complimentary and in some cases a superior solution.The IoT world is limited only by the imagination and as such we at iCom are invested in keeping pace with such innovations while at the same time researching and designing product solutions that will meet our client needs.
LAN hardware has developed from the basic unmanaged standalone layer 2 10Mbps hub to the 10Gbps++ manageable switching platforms we see today.Modern switches have layer 3 functionality, port level security, Vlan configuration, POE, QoS and so much more.iCom design, configure, install and support the full range. Our designers consult on the best solution for your needs. We provide systems that integrate and support CCTV, Wifi, POE, DAS, POL, IP Telephony, Fiber Channel and IoT to name but a few.Our hardware solutions integrate fully with the cabling plant to enable current and future technologies, to provide an agile platform to meet our clients business needs with service level agreements tailored to requirement.

Distributed Antenna Systems
In-building mobile telephony is de-rigueur for the modern worker, for the needs of an ever increasingly agile workforce who are accustomed to the freedom and functionality of their cellular technology. While fixed wiring is undoubtedly here to stay, more and more companies are availing of technologies such as high bandwidth intelligent WiFi systems to supplement their connectivity requirements and to adapt to the needs of a technology savvy workforce capable of gaining maximum efficiency from ubiquitous access.Heretofore cellular coverage was measured geographically at the macro level to the stage where our expectations are high and as users we are intolerant of blind spots, loss of connectivity or indeed anything less that speedy internet access. This trend is only set to grow and 5G is being positioned to sate.What we are now experiencing is the negative effect modern building design has on coverage and people are no longer happy to walk outside or stand on the desk like you did with the coat hanger when everything was in black and white.Distributed Antenna Systems aren’t new, what is useful is the ability to deploy this technology over structured cabling. DAS is now set to compliment Wifi in the enterprise. RF used to be a magical science with engineers in lab coats building filter circuits tweaked to channel and those on site installing bulky and more often sulky coaxial cable that worked as long as you didn’t look at it sideways.This has changed and iCom Technologies have the solution.
The last thing anyone wants is a power glitch or failure corrupting your data.The importance of expertise in the area of secure power ensures that the solution meets the requirement. That your system is intolerant of failure. Scope iCom have the skill sets necessary to specify, design, install and commission secure power systems for everything from an individual server to a complete Data Centre.If you see power security as an important consideration, call us on (01) 8853350.
WiFi and Cellular Network Planning
Scope iCom have been involved in the design and specification of WiFi networks since the beginning and we see in-building cellular as a rational extension to the trend towards ubiquitous coverage.The complexities contingent with higher speed WiFi and its co-location with Cellular active DAS, inside the building, necessitate not only an in-depth knowledge of the technologies but also an investment in the electronics necessary to model, plan and map the coverage area on the ground. What was once a WiFi Heat Map now needs to encompass the cohabitation of cellular systems and IoT technologies across all frequencies.Further to this relationships with the Telco providers, their partners and replete discussions with the end user are vital to ensuring systems are designed specific to the environment.The expectations and needs of the client and their customers must be informed by the trajectory of the technology.As a technology company with strong and long standing partners across the verticals Scope iCom can ensure that your project is delivered from aspiration to realisation.
With the best will in the world cross connects and patching systems can become untidy and unmanageable over time. The pace of business can place the IT manager under pressure to deliver connectivity at short notice and doing so in a neat and tidy manner is not always feasible. To add to the woes keeping patching records moves to the list of lower priority things to do. Expedience takes over and since you know the system the tidy up can wait for a quiet period.iCom Technologies have the experience, the tooling and the people to rectify this situation.We will assess, quantify, design and upgrade your system and provide a detailed record for your new look manageable patching frame.
