A structured cabling system is a building’s telecommunications cabling array. The primary purpose of such cabling systems is to provide telephone, Internet, VOIP, and wireless connectivity to the entire building as efficiently as possible, as well as connecting the building to external service providers.
Structured cabling is critical because it streamlines the cable infrastructure installation process, helps simplify troubleshooting, and ensures all telecom elements are implemented according to the latest standards.
Structured Cabling Explained
Structured cabling systems comprise of six distinct subsystems, serving as the physical backbone of the building’s internal network. Here’s how each one functions.
Entrance Point (MPoE)
Also known as the Minimum Point of Entry (MPoE), this array of cables, connecting hardware, and network protection devices exists to separate your building’s internal network from the telecom company or internet service provider’s external network.
Telecom Room Cabling
TRs are rooms that house jumpers, patch cords, and horizontal cross-connects. TRs are where backbone cabling ends, and horizontal cabling begins, distributing the network’s vertical (backbone) cabling into a series of horizontal connections.
Horizontal Cable Management
The horizontal cabling array is the collection of cables, cable terminations, and cross-connects running from telecommunications rooms to outlets inside a work area. Strictly regulated, arrays must conform to standards outlined in ANSI/TIA 568.
Backbone cabling (sometimes called riser cabling) is the dense array of twisted-pair or fiber optic cables running through your building. Its purpose to connect equipment rooms to horizontal cross-connects, where horizontal cabling begins.
Equipment Room Wiring
An Equipment Room (ER) is telecom jargon for any room containing what is known as consolidation equipment: routers, network switches, PBXes, and additional cables. ERs must be tightly climate-controlled to combat overheating and eliminate humidity.
Work Zone Cabling
A work zone or work area is any room in the building where you can find equipment operated by the end-users. Examples include desktop PCs, laptops, wirelessly connected devices equipped with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and other equipment designed to be plugged into a wall outlet.
