The world has become a global village, and much credit goes to the advancements in telecommunication which has made it possible for people to connect and interact from all over the world. The telecommunication systems have not only allowed people to socially interact and stay in touch but allow organizations to streamline their business too.
The backbone of a telecommunication system is the cabling infrastructure which provides the high-speed data transmission and connectivity needed to enhance productivity and performance. The network of cables is known as structured cabling and connects all the devices employed in an organization which includes computers, servers, phones, video cameras, and data centers. Today without the use of Cat6 and fiber optic cables, the voice and video communication over long distances would not have been possible. The cabling system is essential for all the telecommunication needs of the company from voice calls to video conferences. The significance of single cabling infrastructure has increased as more of the companies have expanded their business and also started online services.
The different cabling services essential to establish the communication system of a company includes
- Fiber Optic Cabling
- Cat5 or Cat6 cabling
- Ethernet cabling
- WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) installation and Wi-Fi configuration
- Coaxial cables; and
- PBX (Private Branch Exchange) and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) cabling
Bad cabling or using separate cables for your office can result in slow connectivity and slow network downtime. Also, the wires get easily mixed up and cause problems. Moreover, if a fault occurs, it becomes quite difficult to determine where the fault has occurred and how to fix it. On the other hand, it is fairly easy to locate the problem in Cat6 and fiber optic cables and quickly fix it without disturbing the entire network of cables.
An efficient cabling infrastructure helps to remove the bottlenecks which hinder in the performance and productivity of the organization. There is a static point to point setup of cables between the hardware and devices usually result in overheating, and cables are not neatly aligned. A structured cabling system results in better and faster communication and the advantage of adding new hardware and devices without compromising the current network.
There are many companies and even internet technology (IT) experts who provide all the assistance and support needed to implement modern cabling solutions. An IT professional mostly has a skilled technical team which manages all the setup, installation and configuration of the cables with the workstations, servers and data centers. The team can be employed if a company is either establishing its business or overhauling the current one. The technical team will remove the unused and old cables if the company is looking to upgrade and enhance its cabling infrastructure.
A structured cabling system is the best solution for your business needs, ensuring a better return on investment (ROI) along with less maintenance cost and allows you all the convenience to communicate with your clients and customers.
