STRUCTURED CABLING BASICS
Structured cabling or data cabling refers to the various types of cabling and network wiring used in commercial and residential applications. This encompasses a wide range of copper cabling such as unshielded twisted pair, shielded twisted pair, coaxial, fiber optic and low-voltage cabling that is used for security and fire alarm systems.
Each of these cabling systems is unique and has individual applications that work together in a facility’s overall design. In order to better manage structured cabling, organization into separate subsystems is recommended. Following a subsystem structure helps better inform and coordinate contractors and identify potential cabling issues.
These subsystems include:
• Entrance facilities
• Backbone cabling (Risers)
• Telecommunications/Equipment rooms (MDF/IDF)
• Horizontal cabling
SIMPLIFY YOUR DATA CENTER EFFECTIVELY
Substandard cables and poor layout design can definitely ruin your business network infrastructure from a variety of angles. Think of it as a superhighway where tens of thousands of cars are traveling back and forth every second, only to notice that the superhighway was built with rotten wooden planks. A perfect formula for a network disaster.
Bad cable quality and design introduce many problems for your company’s network engineering teams. ‘Spaghetti’ cables can make installations, maintenance, and troubleshooting more difficult and time consuming to resolve.
DC Plus can provide many routes to assist your company in simplifying its current data center cable management, or planning the data cabling for a new location.
For over 20 years DC Plus has been delivering network wiring projects across a variety of verticals. We have been trusted to install cables from simple straight-through to complex multi-mode projects for large enterprises with multiple locations.
