structured cabling

structured_cablingThe advent of structured cabling made the facility manager’s life so much simpler.  Now they could easily move staff to new locations without having to get in computer and telecoms specialists to rewire PC points and phone extensions. structured_cabling.pdf

Structured cabling is by definition a cabling network that is independent of the equipment that is to be connected to it.  You can pass voice, data and video through structured cabling by connecting appropriate converters into the RJ45 sockets on the patch panels and wall-sockets.  There is even structured cabling for optical fibre.  So long as the structured cabling is terminated in the location(s) where you need to use it, then it’s simply a matter of patching your telephony server and data-switch ports to the numbered structured cabling system matching the wall (or floor) outlets. 

You can choose between CAT5, CAT5e and CAT6 for your structured cabling.  Each version provides greater distances and speed of transmission with cat 6 giving Gigabit speeds.
