A Structured Cabling System is a set of cabling and connectivity products that integrates the voice, data, video, and various management systems of a building (such as security alarms, security access, energy systems, etc.). A Structured Cabling System, most simply stated, is based on following a standard methodology (defined by EIA/TIA 568 specifications) while planning and installing network cabling for commercial buildings. The purpose of this standard is to specify a generic telecommunications cabling system that can support a multi-product, multi-vendor environment.
With many offices throughout Michigan, Windemuller has adequate manpower to take on all sized Structured Cabling system projects. Our trained technicians take pride in their installations and do what it takes to make sure the customer is satisfied with the installation.
Structured cabling is the design and installation of a cabling system that will support multiple hardware uses and be suitable for today's needs and those of the future. With a correctly installed system, current and future requirements can be met, and hardware that is added in the future will be supported.
All buildings should include at least one telecommunications or wiring closet that contains the hardware required to connect the horizontal cable runs from each work area to the patch panels and hubs. Patch panels are key elements of any structured cable system. Moves and changes are performed by moving a modular patch cord on the patch panel. Other devices on the network are unaffected by a change to an individual connection at the patch panel.
