What is Structured Cabling and in the age of wifi, why is it still important?

How your office, building, grounds, or campus is wired is crucial to connectivity success. A Structured Cabling System is a set of cabling, wires, and connectivity products that integrate the voice, data, video, and various management systems of a building (such as security alarms and video, phone systems, security access, energy systems, etc.).

Technology is Always Changing.
You Need the Right Cabling Infrastructure to support it.

Technology is constantly evolving and changing, sometimes faster than you could ever guess. These new tools can make businesses more productive, secure, and agile. However, these tools need the right network to support them.

Structured cabling is an infrastructure that’s made up of smaller, standardized elements. You can install structured cabling systems in a building or across a campus. It’s this kind of network cabling that can support all of the rapidly advancing technology coming to the workplace.

Since the advent of personal computers, the introduction of laptops and VoIP calling systems, the demand for a business’s cable network has only grown. In the past, point-to-point cabling was used, which meant every piece of hardware used its own cable. The cabling literally ran from point to point. This would

lead to a jumbled mess of wiring and cables that could be accidentally unplugged or present a safety hazard for tripping. To accommodate the rising need for speed and more bandwidth, structured cabling systems came into use and are now the best solution for a business’s network.

Structured cabling systems are a kind of network cabling solution that organizes your infrastructure. The beauty of structured cabling is that it helps to future-proof your business by accommodating any new hardware you add while supporting the increasing amount of data businesses use every day. It makes things much easier to manage as your business grows!

To help you understand structured cabling systems, we’re taking a deep dive into what they are, how they work, and how you can use structured cabling systems at your business to maximize your ROI.

Structured Cabling Subsystems

“Structured cabling” may lead you to believe that the system is only made of cables in your data center, but that’s not quite the case. A structured cabling system actually runs throughout a building or across a campus, with different points and dedicated areas.

Besides cables, structured cabling solutions can include racks, network cabinets, hardware ports, and more. All of these smaller pieces work together as part of the overall system.

The standardized elements that make up structured cabling are called “subsystems.” These subsystems are typically located across a building or campus, so it’s important to know where they’ll be in your business location. These are the six different types of subsystems that go into structured cabling.

Entrance Facilities

The physical point where the premises’ wiring begins and the telephone company’s wiring ends.

Backbone Cabling

Inter- and intra-building cable connections.


Connects the backbone cabling and horizontal cabling.

Equipment Rooms

Rooms inside the building or campus that house equipment or consolidation points.

Horizontal Cabling

Wiring that connects telecommunications rooms to outlets or work areas in the floor.

Work Area Components

Connections between the end-users equipment and the outlets of the horizontal cabling system.
