A structured cabling system is a comprehensive method of cabling and associated hardware, which delivers an extensive telecommunications infrastructure. This infrastructure serves a vast selection of applications, like to give phone service or transmit information via a computer system. It shouldn’t be device dependent.

What are some of the main structured cabling standards?

The TIA/EIA structured cabling standards specify how to design, construct, and manage a cabling system that’s structured, which means that the machine is made in blocks which have quite specific performance attributes.
