What is Structured Cabling?

Structured cabling is a highly-effective system of backbone cabling that replaces traditional single point-to-point cabling. Before structured cabling arrived, whenever a new connection was required (in data centres, schools, offices etc.) then a single cable would need to be run from the telco gateway up to the connection terminal. This may have been fine when only one connection was required, however as higher connection frequencies and requests began coming in, cable pathways began to become overburdened with cables, with older connection cables being crushed and potentially damaged and connections going down for seemingly no reason. Many businesses today might still look in their cable cabinets or cable trays and cringe at the mess of cables within, realising they have no idea where most of these cable come from and where they go!

In addition to the sheer quantity of cables used, traditional connections were also timely and costly – new cables had to be physically installed from A to B, sometime spanning multiple levels of buildings. This would typically take between five and ten days to be completed, and came with some hefty labour costs.

Structured cabling eliminates all of these problems. Structured cabling replaces the individual connection cable with a high volume multi-service infrastructure backbone which connects the telco/carrier gateways to multiple pre-determined distribution areas within a data centre, campus or office building. This means that when a new connection is delivered to the gateway by the telco, the customer’s service manager simply uses a patch lead to join this connection to the backbone mainframe. The connection can then be patched to the closest distribution area to the final destination, and then another short connection easily made. This new process takes a matter of hours, not days.

The costs of each new connection are also easily managed, as no longer are they dependent on the physical distance the connection needs to travel in, but rather can be pre-set and budgeted for much more accurately. Reliability and uptime of connections and services are also guaranteed, as structured cabling is designed with in-built redundancies in the pathways, which is a standard requirement for most Government organisations, Price Card Industry (PCI) clients and cloud providers.
