Structured Cabling Installations By: Mark Allen About Structured Cabling Systems Structured Cabling Systems are at the base

of modern information network. Designed to accommodate quickly and cost effectively frequent moves adds and changes a structured cabling system can alleviate workflow disruptions and network downtime associated with enterprise restructuring. According to International Engineering standardized structured cabling system for all the systems can reduce initial infrastructure of a modern intelligent Consortium providing an internationally and consolidating cable-delivery methods construction costs for the cabling building by up to 30 percent.

Typical costs for building operation and alterations over a 40-year life cycle far exceed the initial construction costs. Proper systems-integration planning to optimize the construction process can reduce these ongoing life cycle costs. Building an IT infrastructure that is "future ready" is more important than ever. In today's competitive business world enterprises must be able to respond fast to changes that occur in the market place. For some firms this means modernizing their data center to meet strict new regulatory requirements while for other enterprises, being future-ready is all about shortening the development and deployment cycle on new services that are essential to retaining existing customers and acquiring new ones. LA Cabling Structured Cabling Solutions A structured cabling system provides a platform upon which an overall information system strategy is built. With a flexible cabling infrastructure, a structured cabling system can support multiple voice, data, video and multimedia systems regardless of their manufacturer. Copper Infrastructure Solutions: Independently verified screened and unscreened data-communication structured cabling solutions, providing ultimate performance and reliability for today's and tomorrows copper infrastructure requirements. Our Cat 5 (Cat 5e) or Cat 6 solutions will exceed TIA Cat 5e standards. Fiber Optic Solutions: Conventional and blown fibre cabling solutions that compliment the deployment of optical solutions deeper into the network delivering a future-proof infrastructure. Specialty Cabling Solutions: Copper and fibre solutions for diverse and environmentally demanding applications such as Mass Transit, Marine, Automotive and Aerospace, that typically require adherence to strict performance criteria. Low-voltage cabling: Solutions that include music and paging systems, CCTV.

Additional advantages in using structured cabling:

Consistency: Same cables exist everywhere in the building Support of multi-vendor equipment: You can mix and match vendors Simplifies moves adds and changes: As your company grows and/or moves locations with structured cabling your network resources are always ready to go. Simplifies troubleshooting: With a wired structuring systems problems are easier to isolate and fix. Support of future applications: A Cat 5 or even Cat 6 compliant system will support future applications with little (if any) system upgrades.

Benefits of Structured Cabling From an investment point of view structured cabling provides an exceptional ROI. A structured cabling system will outlive all other networking components and will require only minimal upgrades. According to International Engineering Consortium: Construction costs for the cabling of the voice, data, and BMS can be reduced by up to 30 percent when integrating the cabling and delivery methods. Moves, changes, rearrangements, and upgrades can be performed more costeffectively, with a potential savings of 25 to 40 percent for material and labor when using an open-office cabling approach.
