What is a structured cabling system?

Structured cabling is often referred to as voice and data cabling, or simply as Cat 5 or Cat 6 cabling. A structured cabling system is the complete system of cabling and associated hardware which provides a comprehensive communications infrastructure, it is the wiring system found in most modern offices that provides the connectivity for devices such as computers, telephones, and CCTV.

A structured cabling system consists of wall sockets with one or more termination points, these termination points are individually wired back to a central data cabinet and terminated on a patch panel. The patch panel allows system administrators to use patch cables between the panel and terminating equipment allowing the use to be quickly repurposed.

Figure 1.1 showcases one of our engineers, Connah, installing a data cabinet and patch panel at a customer location.

Cable management is the key to any successful solution, keeping cables tidy will allow simple tasks such as patching to be done as quickly and painlessly as possible. Each component of the structured cabling system should be appropriately labelled, patch cords should be of suitable length (not too short or long), colour coding patch cords can help easily identify their purpose, for example, green for telephones, blue for computer networks, yellow for CCTV, etc.
