What is Structured Cabling?
Many network administrators keep hearing that the network is down because of some or the other reason. Various researchers indicate that in many cases, the network is down on account of inferior cabling systems. And installing standards-compliant structured cabling systems can eliminate much of this downtime. Another important factor that needs to be taken into account is that the structured cabling systems, though it outlives most other networking components, represents just five percent of the total network investment.
The structured cable is the only one that needs to be installed to contend with the end needs of telephone and data communications now and in the future. It is a system that provides a very “structured” approach to the entire cabling system- a single-mixed media network that handles all information traffic like voice,data,video, and even big complex building management systems. In brief, it could be described as a system that comprises a set of transmission products,applied with engineering design rules that allow the user to apply voice,data,and signals in a manner that maximizes data rates.
