Adding more equipment to your network ultimately requires additional cabling. With additional cabling comes the challenge of ensuring that the right cable is used and that the installation is done professionally and per specifications.
The TIA/EIA structured cabling standards define and outline the designs and build out of cabling systems in accordance structured blocks or frameworks. Such frameworks have specific performance characteristics that are in alignment with the services that will be utilizing such cables. These vary depending on whether the cabling is fiber (single and/or multimode), Cat5e/Cat6e (STP and/or UTP), etc, and the hierarchical implementation structure based on performance requirements of each cable.
Whether you have a new construction project or looking to add additional cabling to an existing site, cabling decisions are
long term and can have a significant impact on cost in the future. The cabling system you choose today is an embedded infrastructure that should be designed taking future requirements into consideration. Questions about the type of cable and the number of runs required need to be balanced between short term cost verses long term needs. Cabling should be designed to support current and next generation data and voice networks as installing low cost obsolete cables today means costly re-cabling in the future.
Whether you're looking to add low voltage cabling to extend the demarcation point, adding more data or voice jacks for new offices, or adding fiber runs between buildings - give our team of expert technicians and project managers a call.
