Your Cabling System Needs to Support Current and Future Infrastructure


Your structured cabling system, the mostly hidden infrastructure of wires and jacks and patch panels, forms the critical foundation on which all information systems are built. OSBT knows that designing and building an IT infrastructure ready for the future success of your company is critically important.

In today’s competitive economy, companies must be able to respond fast to changing business requirements, new and evolving technologies and changes in laws and mandates. For some, this means updating or consolidating their data center to meet strict new regulatory requirements while for others, being future-ready is about developing and deploying new services. Today, more than ever, the quality and performance of your cabling system plays a direct and measurable role on the reliability of your LANs and, ultimately, your corporate IT strategies.

Performance demands on cabling infrastructures are sure to increase over the next few years. Cabling usually represents 5-7% of an overall network budget. Cabling systems, both copper and fiber, are designed to perform for 10 years, supporting 2-3 generations of active electronics.  Therefore not getting it right could have a long term impact and be very costly.

Structured cabling standards specify generic installation and design topologies that are characterized by a “category” or “class” of transmission performance. These cabling standards are subsequently referenced in applications standards, developed by committees such as IEEE and ATM, as a minimum level of performance necessary to ensure application operation.

There are several factors that must be taken into consideration when determining the category or class of cabling that will be used in a network infrastructure. This is true for both copper and fiber.

Factors that must be taken into consideration are:
  • Expected installed lifetime of the cabling plant
  • Applications that will run on the cabling plant over its useful life
  • Timeframe during which standards, applications and electronics manufacturers will support the cabling plant
  • Cost of active electronics
  • Warranty length and covered components
  • Price as it relates to performance
  • Time the end-user will occupy a facility
