Network Cabling
Structured cabling is building or campus telecommunications cabling infrastructure that consists of a number of standardized smaller elements (hence structured) called subsystems.

Structured Cabling Falls Into Six Subsystems:
- Entrance Facilities is the point where the telephone company network ends and connects with the on premises wiring at the customer premises.

- Equipment Rooms house equipment and wiring consolidation points that serve the users inside the building or campus.

- Backbone Cabling connects between the equipment/telecommunications rooms, so named because the rooms are typically on different floors.

- Horizontal Cabling wiring can be IW (inside wiring) or Plenum Cabling and connects telecommunications rooms to individual outlets or work areas on the floor, usually through the wireways, conduits or ceiling spaces of each floor.

- Telecommunications Rooms or Telecommunications Enclosure connects between the backbone cabling and horizontal cabling.

- Work Area Components connect end-user equipment to outlets of the horizontal cabling system.

A structured cabling system is a complete system of cabling and associated hardware, which provides a comprehensive telecommunications infrastructure. This infrastructure serves a wide range of uses, such as to provide telephone service or transmit data through a computer network. It should not be device dependent. Every structured cabling system is unique. This is due to variations in:

  • The architectural structure of the building, which houses the cabling installation;
  • The cable and connection products;
  • The function of the cabling installation;
  • The types of equipment the cabling installation will support - present and future;
  • The configuration of an already installed system (upgrades and retrofits);
  • Customer requirements; and
  • Manufacturer warranties.
  • The methods we use to complete and maintain cabling installations are relatively standard. The standardization of these installations is necessary because of the need to ensure acceptable system performance from increasingly complex arrangements.
