FAQ

What is a Structured Cabling System?

A Structured Cabling System (SCS) is a flexible, expandable, and intelligent system combining both copper and fiber optic cabling. A single type of cable can link together any type of equipment. The result? Simplified connections, easier office moves and reduced costs. The SCS adapts to your needs, not the other way around. It adapts to all types of devices, telephones, computers, printers, faxes, etc., without having to install new wiring.

Why is Cabing so Important?

50% of network problems are related to cabling problems, yet only 2% of your network investment is data cabling. These network problems translate into increased support costs, increased downtime, and unsatisfied users. Emerging bandwidth intensive applications, like voice over IP, IP-based video conferencing and digital audio and video, are becoming reality. Businesses expect their information technology (IT) investment to impact their bottom line; to increase sales, decrease operational costs and improve product quality. Now, more than ever, information plays a vital role. The successful delivery of that information within and across enterprises is an absolute necessity. To that end, a reliable, high performance cabling foundation is key.

These systems can include combinations of voice, data, video, audio and low-voltage control.

The Bottom Line

A network cabling infrastructure is the foundation on which all other network equipment depends. A cabling system should be viewed as a long-term investment with a view towards the future. Technology continues to advance at a rapid rate. The cabling infrastructure needs to be able to handle today’s technology, and allow seamless migration to future technologies.
