A Structured Cable System is a telecommunications cable infrastructure that consists of several smaller elements called subsystems that offer a comprehensive telecommunications infrastructure. This system makes up the LAN (Local Area Network) within a commercial building for transmitting data. Every structured cabling system is unique, because of the variations in customer requirements, the architectural structure of the building, and other aspects. To ensure a proper cabling installation, there are a series of standards to design, install and maintain cabling installations. Compliance with these standards origin some benefits to the use of structured cabling system – uniform documentation and consistency of installations.
The structured cabling system avoids the mess, is cost-effective, reduces the risk of downtime and is time-saving. Also, because of its organization, it’s easy to find, which can help to reduce the risk of downtime. Another advantage of a structured cabling system is its flexibility that can accommodate moves and quick changes.
