18 Mar Philadelphia Installation of Telecommunication Structured Cabling Systems
Structured cabling is a technique that is used for the planning and installation of network connections. This technique is regularly used within all commercial purposes in buildings and campuses.
It is a standardized method, and structured cabling systems uses a specified set of standards to promote a multi-product and a multi-vendor environment within the telecommunication systems that are present in multipurpose buildings. The structured cabling systems were designed in order to reduce certain factors that could cause your network performance to be less than what you expect. The fact that it deploys a standard method ensures that your phone or network service will perform without any surprise glitches.
Telecommunication cabling system structures can be explained using five classifications.
It is important to note that all five structures are designed to support voice, data, text, video and images. The different classifications are as follows:
1. Horizontal cabling: Connections start from the work area and then terminate at the telecommunications room. The telecommunication room is the central location or home to all the network media. It is preferred that the telecommunication is on the same floor or room as the workstation. The concept is that wires run horizontally across the building, so the presence of the workstation in the vicinity of the telecommunications room would improve overall performance. Mechanical terminations and horizontal cables are examples of horizontal cabling.
2. Backbone cabling: This system is used to serve as a connection between telecommunication rooms, equipment rooms, entrance facilities and main terminal spaces. Backbone cables, mechanical terminations, and the jumpers designed specifically for backbone-to-backbone cross-connection are an example. This cabling structure is most effective for cabling between buildings. Hierarchical star topology is employed in the backbone structure.
3. Work Area: The work area includes the connector of telecommunications room, which is used to construct a connection by making use of the end of the horizontal cabling system, by connecting it with the appropriate work station apparatus (e.g. PLC, PC, etc.) Work area channel can be a box or a face plate. The primary purpose of this outlet is to firmly hold the modular jack or connector. The drawback is that the maximum length allowed for the patch cord in the work area is 5 meters only.
4. Telecommunications Room: The most important role of this room is the annihilation of backbone cables and horizontal (which should be cross connections) to connect hardware that is well matched with the system.
5. Equipment Room and Entrance Facilities: These are used to accommodate and facilitate telecommunication.
