Four Benefits of Implementing a Structured Cabling System

The number of electronic gadgets in existence seems to grow every day. Because of this, wireless networks have become more of a necessity, especially for businesses. For this reason, implementing a cabling system for optimal performance and reliability is a must. Compared to traditional cabling systems, a structured cabling system is safer and more cost-effective. It also eliminates eyesores like jumbled wiring.

In this article, we will talk about what exactly a cabling system is and how it can benefit your business.

What is a Structured Cabling System?

A structured cabling system is a system of cabling and associated hardware used to provide voice, data, fiber optic, and other management solutions to a home or place of business. Every cabling system has its own unique components depending on certain aspects like:

  • The structure of a building
  • Supported cabling equipment
  • Already installed systems
  • Customer requirements

Now, let’s jump into the four primary benefits of implementing these systems.

Efficiency

Structured cabling systems are incredibly easy to manage and can make things much simpler for your business. In addition, you’re only paying for a one-time service that continues to offer benefits for years down the road.

Most companies have a variety of devices they use (smartphones, laptops, desktop computers, printers, copiers, the list goes on and on). By introducing a structured cabling system, issues can be resolved more quickly across all connected devices.

Network Stability

A structured cabling system is an excellent solution if you’re looking to make your network more reliable and/or faster. It enables you to minimize the risk of losing your network connection and is a well-organized solution that helps data flow quickly.

Fire Safety

Structured cabling is much safer than its traditional alternative. After all, having a mess of tangled wires is a disaster waiting to happen. They can be a hazard to your employees (e.g. fall risk) and even to your business as a whole. Improperly maintained wires often cause ventilation issues, which result in overheating, and can end up with a call to the fire department if you’re not careful.

Professional Appearance

Let’s face it. Appearance is everything. With structured cabling comes a sort of aesthetic appeal that can make your business come off as more organized and functional. Forget the mess of wires that give off an unprofessional look. With structured cabling, you have organized, color-coded cables that are easy to sort through if an issue arises.
