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.
Hensco Technologies Inc. has experienced technicians to take on all sized Structured Cabling system projects, and we take pride in our installations and do what it takes to make sure the customer is satisfied with the installation. We’ve often been asked to ‘clean up’ Telco rooms, and as you can see from the picture above, we do a very good and clean job!
Why Use Structured Cabling?
Consistency – A structured cabling system can use the same cabling system for everything. Standardize your systems for phone, Ethernet, and ISDN cabling in order to simplify troubleshooting issues and streamline future cabling updates.
Long life – With support for multi-vendor equipment, a standards-based structured cabling system will support your applications and hardware even after you change or mix and match vendors. With a proper structured cabling system, you can avoid reworking the cabling when you upgrade to another vendor or model.
Simplify moves/adds/changes – Whether you need to move a computer or TV from one room to another, share files or printers between computers, or add a modem connection, DSL, two-line phones, or fax to your office, a structured cabling system can streamline the process.
Simplify troubleshooting – Even cables that were installed correctly can fail…and they do. With a structured wiring system, problems are less likely to knock out the entire network, easier to isolate, and more straightforward to fix.
Support for future applications – A structured cabling system will support future applications like multimedia, video conferencing, and plenty more with little or no upgrade pain.
Not only will we install commercial locations, but we can also install cabling for residential purposes. Whether you are adding new voice, data or video connections or building a new home, Hensco can take care of all of your cabling needs.
