Structured cabling is the infrastructure that supports your company’s technical or network cabling. It is vital to your technical setup or closet and is a main aspect of today’s data and telecommunication providers. Here are just a few benefits of establishing structured cabling in your business.
While there is an initial upfront investment, structured cabling typically saves you money in the long run. If you ever need to install or replace a server, you can reduce the installation time by employing structured cabling from the beginning. Having a good cabling system in place means that the technicians won’t have to waste time figuring out what everything is connected to or replace poor cable management.
Structured cabling is also good for planning for the future. For one, any technical upgrades your business undergoes will be easier by having a solid cabling system in place. If your business grows and you need to scale your communications, structured cabling makes the transition that much easier. It also lets you keep ahead of new IT developments and trends.
If any of your systems go down, having good, organized cable management allows you to get up and running that much quicker. Also, if one of your cables stop working you can isolate the problem without the headache of trying to track down the bad cable. If you don’t have structured cabling, it could take your team hours to find the precise cable that is causing the issue. That means you will be offline for the entirety of that time. Your business can’t afford to be down that amount of time.
