Structural wiring

The concept of structured cabling consists in carrying out a cable network in the building so that from every telecommunication point it has access to the LAN and telephone services.

The only way to get this state is to have a building cabling system with a lot more subscriber points than they are designed to use at the time of design and installation. This requires installation of sockets at regular intervals throughout the site so that coverage is available for all areas where access to the network may be required. It is assumed that you should place one double subscriber point (2xRJ45) per 10 square meters of office space. Of course, the point of completion of this point should also be the outlet of the mains, preferably dedicated, which will ensure the quality of the current supplied.

This flexible wiring system allows you to move any workstation to any location in the building and to connect it to any teleinformation system by simply connecting the cable.

From a practical point of view it is very important to use installation standards in structured cabling networks. This allows you to attach active equipment from different manufacturers to the cable infrastructure that is the interface between the various active network devices. Standards also provide great flexibility when it comes to changing the location of equipment. In a new place, simply plug in the hardware to the existing network connection, make changes to the distribution rack, and do everything right. No changes are needed to the cable installation. This is possible only if the existing cable infrastructure has been designed and constructed in accordance with specific standards and standards for structured cabling. Standardization work on structured cabling has been launched in the USA. Therefore, the first standard for structured cabling was the American standard EIA / TIA 568A. It is based on international standards ISO and European EN. Despite their common origins, these norms differ in some details. The standards define cables, connectors, installation methods, measurement methodology, and system classification.
