Similar to “the cloud,” structured cabling is another one of those buzzwords that gets thrown around often in the cable sphere. Many people believe that structured cabling is simply knowing the purpose of each cable in their network — but it’s a little more complicated than that. Today, we’re breaking down the basics of structured data cabling.
The Fiber Optic Association defines structured cabling as “the standardized architecture and components for communications cabling specified by the EIA/TIA TR42 committee and used as a voluntary standard by manufacturers to insure interoperability.” To clarify, it is an organized and flexible approach to cabling that allows simple changes to an IT network to be made. This comprehensive infrastructure supports the continuous flow of information and serves a variety of uses, from telephone services to data transmission.
Every structured cabling system is unique and designed in compliance with EIA/TIA standards to fit a company’s specific needs.
