If you are a building manager, commercial facility manager, or similar, you will most likely have come across the term structured cabling. In this blog post, we look at exactly what structured cabling is and how it could benefit your business.
What Is Structured Cabling?
Structured cabling is a type of infrastructure that unifies and supports all of a building’s networks. Structured cabling is the design, installation, and management of an innovative cabling system that supports multiple hardware at once, for example, PCs, telephones, and other electronic devices.
What Are The Benefits Of Structured Cabling?
1. Meet Consumer Demand
In today’s digital world, having a reliable IT infrastructure is often essential so you can meet the online demands and requirements of your employees and tenants. Structured cabling not only helps you meet consumer demand but helps you to future-proof your business as it delivers high bandwidth and a stable base for infrastructures to be built on. With structured cabling, you can have complete confidence your infrastructure can support all new technologies as your business grows and you introduce new users to your infrastructure.
2. Ease Of Use
In a large residential or commercial building, multiple different IT devices and electronic equipment will be used at the same time. Structured cabling can help create a simple, straightforward and organized cabling system that eliminates the need for managing and maintaining multiple complex wiring infrastructures.
3. Less Downtime
In business, if a network or electronic system is not working, the workflow of a business can grind to an abrupt and expensive halt. With structured cabling, however, it is much easier to find and identify issues with a system or device as only one infrastructure will need to be analyzed and fixed. Rather than having to maintain and fix multiple complex wiring infrastructures, structured cabling can help you reduce the time and money you spend trying to fix a problem.
While installing structured cabling may at first seem like an unnecessary expense for your business, the scalability and reduced maintenance costs of one, simple cabling system will help your business to save money over the long-term, making it a cost-effective installation. Structured cabling will also help to boost the productivity of a business, as it reduces the amount of time employees spend tracking and searching for problematic wiring infrastructures and reduces maintenance requirements.
5. Greater Flexibility
The more flexible a business can be, the more open and ready they are for business growth. Structured cabling ensures businesses can quickly accommodate business changes and rapidly reduce the installation time and cost of introducing new devices and technology for a business. By ensuring all networks can optimally adapt to change, structured cabling allows a business to grow and expand successfully.
