A Structured cabling system is the wiring network that carries all your data voice, multimedia, security, VoIP, PoE, and even wireless connections throughout your building or campus. It includes everything from the data centre to the desktop, including cabling, connecting hardware, equipment, telecommunications rooms, cable pathways, work area, and even the jacks on the wall plate in your office.
The importance of structured cabling.
A structured cabling system is as important to the success of your organisation as the people are who work in it. A well-planned structured cabling system facilitates the continuous flow of information, enables the sharing of resources, promotes smooth operations, accommodates ever-changing technology, offers plenty of room for growth, and evolves with your organisation. Plus, it will be around far longer than your current PC, server, and network switches.
In essence, a structured cabling system is the lifeblood of your organisation. If done right, it will serve you well for years. If not, your organisation’s growth and bottom line can suffer. Today’s networks are complex systems running on technologies that no one could have imagined just 15 years ago.
