Structured cabling


Cable is the medium through which information usually moves from one network device to another.

A structured cabling system is a complete system of cabling and associated hardware, which provides a comprehensive telecommunications infrastructure. This infrastructure serves a wide range of uses, such as to provide telephone service or transmit data through a computer network. It should not be device dependent.

It includes:
  • The architectural structure of the building, which houses the cabling installation
  • The cable and connection products
  • The function of the cabling installation
  • The types of equipment the cabling installation will support -- present and future
  • The configuration of an already installed system
  • Customer requirements
  • Manufacturer warranties
Advantages of Structured Cabling:
  • Future Proof Investment
  • Simplicity
  • Cost Effective
  • Reduced Risk of Downtime
