Do I Need Structured Cabling for My Myrtle Beach Organization?
Structured cabling refers to more than just the simple network of wires connecting your home or small business to the internet. It’s a comprehensive system of cables and necessary components and hardware used to create the organization’s telecommunications infrastructure, including internet, intranet, and phone service.
All structured cabling systems must adhere to the industry standards created by the Telecommunications Industry of America and American National Standards Institute. These standards ensure that there is consistency to how a system is designed and installed and what materials are used. This makes it possible to provide specific training and certification to technicians and professionals who create and implement these complex structured cabling systems. The specific code is the Commercial Building Telecommunication Cabling Standard, or ANSI/TIA-568.
Structured cabling must also contain six specific subsystems:
- Entrance facilities are the specific point where the outside service network (telephone company, internet service provider) connects to the organization or building’s wiring.
- Equipment rooms are the main location for a building or organization’s routers, servers, and large telecommunications equipment. This can also house the entrance facility.
- Backbone cabling the main information channel which connects all the telecommunications to the equipment room and connects separate buildings to the network in a campus setup.
- Horizontal cabling is the wiring that extends from the telecommunication rooms to the individual work areas.
- Telecommunications enclosures are the locations in which the backbone cabling and horizontal cabling connect.
- Work-area components connect user equipment, such as phones and computers to the horizontal cabling network.
