Now, more than ever, businesses need to focus on the IT basics - the supporting infrastructure that will bear the load and distribute your vital business information globally. IT is the very foundation of your business. If you want to protect that business for tomorrow, a solid structured cabling system, built to handle future applications, is your best insurance policy. Structured Cabling is 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 This is an area where business decision makers should not skimp on performance and quality to save a few dollars. Doing so could cost more money over the long term to troubleshoot, test, repair, or replace. Planning for the future and implementing a high-performing, name brand, quality structured cable system in accordance with industry standards will allow your networking equipment and computer systems to perform to their potential. An effective cable system design coupled with an industry standard installation from Tier 1 installers like Konnet, increases your ROI, minimizes MACs, and reduces your IT administrators’ need to spend time testing, troubleshooting, or replacing the cabling system. During the commercial construction planning stages of a new data center, office building, or tenant improvement project, it is crucial to spend time anticipating future needs and allow for expansion and technology upgrades in a copper or fiber optic cabling infrastructure. A qualified network design engineer will ensure that prudent planning and intelligent design are combined with cabling industry standards during installation. This will result in a structured cabling infrastructure that has a good chance of staying productive for several years, reduces unplanned expenses over time, and provides building occupants with access to high-performance, cutting-edge telecommunications solutions.
The prominent standards are : ANSI/TIA-568-C.0, ANSI/TIA-568-C.1, ANSI/TIA-568-C.2, ANSI/TIA-568-C.3, TIA-569-B (2004; Amd 1 2009), ANSI/TIA/EIA-606-A-2002, Cenelec EN50173, ISO11801.
