What is structured cabling? A structured cabling installation consists of a set of cables and materials (sockets, distributors, etc.) that carry out the transmission of voice and data in a building. Structured cabling facilities are “open” architecture, using standard materials and topology in accordance with international standards for design and installation. For many years the wiring that served the data transmission needs was done separately from those of the wiring for voice transmission. But the integration of high-tech systems in all areas made the need for a standard wiring method greater. Thus with a cabling system we can serve the needs of the following:
- Fire safety – fire detection Security and access control system
- Energy control and saving system
- Temperature and ventilation control system
- Data transfer (PC network)
- Voice transfer (Telephone – call center)
- Image transfer (Digital TV)
In most cases, the wiring in a new building is not properly planned and predicted, resulting in the installation of cables at various stages of construction. This, in addition to increasing our costs, leads to solutions that do not serve us perfectly. By anticipating the cabling system during the design of a building, we achieve economy, simplification of installation, possibility of future extensions, use of common specifications for all wiring and terminal equipment. All materials intended for structured cabling networks are certified according to their performance in various tests and belong to one of the following categories.
