Structured cabling is often defined as cabling that consists of standardized components that provide an integrated telecommunications infrastructure. Simply put, it is a standardized cabling system for transmitting and processing voice, data and video signals in commercial and residential units. Organized cabling systems are less expensive to install and maintain throughout the life of the system. The design of a structured system requires a lot of skill and careful preparation, as it involves many key factors, from the analysis of the building's structure to the quality of materials. In addition, cabling must use standards such as the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for US companies. These standardizations are critical to confirming acceptable cabling system performance.
Such installations typically include well-planned activities, including planning of connecting entrance facilities, design of vertical and horizontal main roads, use of vertical and horizontal trunk cables, work area outlets, telecommunications cabinets, cross-connect facility transitions, and rendezvous points.
This plays a very important role in computer networks in the information technology environment. A well-managed network cabling system will ensure that the cables are neatly deployed, without structural cabling and clogging, and properly concealed to keep the cabling environment clean and tidy. Cables and switch ports should be properly labeled with appropriate labels to make it easier to pull and add cables in the future. Use cable markings and labels around each cable to know where each cable needs to be connected when you pull it out for maintenance later. Similarly, in the case of laying fiber optic cables, care should be taken to ensure that the cable does not bend over its entire range of bends over its entire distance. The main cable must have a fire rating specification as specified by the standard. If the main cable passes through the plenum, the cable must be an indoor single mode cable (OFNP). All exposed cable system metal components should be grounded to ensure safety while meeting electromagnetic compatibility requirements. Finally, all cable connections must be tested and verified for compliance with standards and specifications.
There are many things to consider when considering the use of structured cabling. Enterprises can understand the needs of users, and also need to consider the type of information to be transmitted, and understand how big the area needs to be covered. If these problems cannot be solved, then there may be problems with accurately controlling the factors that best meet the needs of the user.
Here are some structured cabling services
• Horizontal cabling system
• Main cloth system
• Cable termination and testing
• Wire label and wire mapping
• Pipeline installation
• Cat3 telephone wiring
• Cat5 and Cat5e data cabling
• Cat6 and Cat6e data cabling
• Cat7 network cabling
• Fiber conversion
Another thing to consider is whether there is an entrance facility and equipment room facilities. There are also telecommunication rooms and structured wiring devices reserved for these rooms to connect so-called trunk wiring systems and horizontal wiring systems. The backbone cabling system connects all types of facilities, including equipment rooms, entrance facilities, and telecommunications rooms. The horizontal cabling system connects the telecommunications room to the outlets on different floors.
Users need to understand what they need and know which type of system is best for them. Consideration should be given to communicating with qualified cabling companies to understand what they recognize and what they need. In addition, you can contact multiple companies to ensure the best advice.
If the user determines the type of cabling required, then it is time to choose a router. The next step is to install the wiring system. This is a very important step because users not only have to plan for existing cabling needs, but also ensure that future cabling needs are planned.
And the best way for companies to ensure a successful system installation is to use appropriately trained employees who can design, implement, and test systems.
