Network Structured Cabling System

A structured cabling system is as important to the success of your organization 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 organization. Plus, it will be around far longer than your current PC, server, and network switches.

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 center to the desktop, including cabling, connecting hardware, equipment,
telecommunications rooms, cable pathways, work areas, and even the jacks on the wallplate in your office.

It is something that you want to install by skilled and trained individuals. Many network administrators keep complaining that the network is down because of some or another reason. Various researchers indicate that in many cases, the network is down on account of inferior cabling systems and installation practices. Structured cabling is a system that provides a “structured” approach to the entire cabling system. Structured Cabling System Chennai

The Importance of Cable:

Cabling is one of the most important components of your network and is the most long-lived with an expected life span of 15–20 years. You’ll most likely replace your network equipment three to four times over the life of the cabling system. Plan on cabling to be about 15% of your total network cost. And don’t skimp on the cable or the installation. An investment in a high-quality cabling system is easily justified
in reduced downtime, reduced maintenance, and better network performance. So think long-term and buy the best cable and installation services.

Cabling considerations:
Network Application: The type of network you plan to run will influence the cable you choose.
Upgrades:  Anticipate changes and upgrades in equipment and applications.
Life Span: Expect 10 years minimum and 20 years maximum.
Distance: Review the maximum distance between your network switches and the farthest desktop.
Cable Routing: Consider bend radius and available space for running cables in the floor and ceiling.
Fire Risk: Abide by all regulations.
Existing Cable: Is there existing or abandoned cable that needs to be removed?
EMI (electromagnetic interference): Don’t forget to check for it.
Environment: Any physical limitations that could affect your cable choice?
