STRUCTURED CABLING

A properly designed and installed structured cabling system provides a cabling infrastructure that delivers predictable performance as well as has the flexibility to accommodate moves, adds and changes; maximizes system availability, provides redundancy; and future proofs the usability of the cabling system.

 

What Are the Benefits of Structured Cabling?

An Organization must be equipped with an efficient IT Structure cabling. With an organized structured cabling system the benefits are:
1.    MAC’s are much quicker due to the fact that they are done in the MDA versus running long patch cords from equipment racks.
2.    Potential for downtime is reduced as potential for human error is drastically reduced due to this organization.
3.    Time savings; cable and port tracing becomes a much easier job with a structured cabling system.
4.    Aesthetics; Never underestimate the looks! A structured cabling system will look much cleaner than a point to point method. Since the changes are done in the MDA versus at the hardware, the hardware can be cabled up and not touched in most instances. This allows the cabling in front of the switch to remain aesthetically pleasing.

Methods:

Fiber Structured Cabling

For the utmost in communication quality in channels ranging from voice to video, and applications such as high speed internet access, fiber optic cabling is a proven solution with many cost saving and performance benefits. But to deploy or upgrade a fiber optic cabling system requires certain expertise to ensure a scalable and flexible communications infrastructure that guarantees speed and reliability.
Consider the performance, efficiency and TCO advantages of a passive optical network, or PON, a point-to-multipoint, fiber-to-the-user network architecture that employs unpowered optical splitters that enable a single strand of singlemode optical fiber to serve multiple users, reducing the amount of physical cable and active equipment in an installation.
For hundreds of companies in dozens of industries, Datatrend has provided fiber optic cabling installation services for PONs and other solutions that have met the communication needs of today while preparing businesses for the opportunities of tomorrow. Our team undergoes consistent training to ensure we are constantly up to speed on both the latest fiber optic technologies and the latest communication needs for specific industries and/or applications.
We also provide assessment, design, and consulting services around fiber optic cabling, because the technology continues to shift and advance, and we will work with you to determine if fiber optic cabling is right for you.

Copper Structured Cabling

Category 7A, -The highest copper cabling bandwidth with the least number of components

Cat6a, Cat6 and Cat5E for Structured Cabling Infrastructure

The Category 7A, Cat6a, Cat6 and Cat5E copper structured cabling systems ensure network cabling performance and flexibility and provide certain life spans before re-cabling or upgrading. Higher bandwith is available with every of these systems, however depending on your application you might want to install the best on the market or an older system.

Structured Cabling System

Entrance facilities contain the cables, network demarcation point(s), connecting hardware, protection devices and other equipment that connect to the access provider (AP) or private network cabling. It includes connections between outside plant and inside building cabling.
The environmentally controlled centralized space for telecommunications equipment is usually more complex than a telecommunications room (TR) or telecommunications enclosure (TE). It usually houses the main cross-connect (MC) [Distributor C] and may also contain the intermediate cross-connects (ICs) [Distributor B], horizontal cross-connects (HCs) [Distributor A], or both.
The backbone cabling provides interconnection between telecommunications rooms, equipment rooms, access provider (AP) spaces and entrance facilities.
A TR or TE houses the terminations of horizontal and backbone cables to connecting hardware including any jumpers or patch cords. It may also contain the IC or MC for different portions of the backbone cabling system. The TR or TE also provides a controlled environment to house telecommunications equipment, connecting hardware and splice closures serving a portion of the building. The use of a telecommunications enclosure (TE) is for a specific implementation and not a general case. It is intended to serve a smaller floor area than a TR and may be used in addition to the minimum "one TR per floor" rule.
The horizontal cabling system extends from the work area’s telecommunications information outlet to the telecommunications room (TR) or telecommunications enclosure (TE). It includes horizontal cable, mechanical terminations, jumpers and patch cords located in the TR or TE and may incorporate multiuser telecommunications outlet assemblies (MUTOAs) and consolidation points (CPs). The maximum horizontal cable length shall be 90 m (295 ft.), independent of media type. If a MUTOA is deployed, the maximum horizontal balanced twisted-pair copper cable length shall be reduced.
