structured cabling
as a major competitive advantage
for efficient communication

If network cables for a LAN connection or also telephone and Ethernet cabling are planned today, care must be taken to ensure that the cabling is future-proof. Changes in the organisational structure, connections of buildings and finally the technological change regarding the communication architecture can always change the requirements for the data line infrastructure.

It is therefore all the more important to take changing requirements in the coming years and decades into account when planning the cabling and to ensure that the ICT infrastructure is always adaptable.

Future-proof cabling in companies

Data Center Racks

A main objective of structured network cabling is the provision and management of reserve capacity. Modern communication technologies should be supported, and the simple installation and connection of additional nodes or network components should be ensured as easily as possible. The future-proofing of the cabling is an aspect that should not be underestimated. Changes in the company structure or the connection of buildings change the communication architecture just as much as new technologies or a relocation of the company.

The demands on the network infrastructure are changing rapidly. It is therefore all the more important to consider changing requirements in the coming years already when planning the company network and to keep the infrastructure always adaptable.

Network cabling optimally tailored to your needs

The optimal data connection depends on spatial conditions, objectives and operational processes. We cover a diverse range of services:

Structured cabling saves costs

Carefully planned and structured IT cabling helps to save costs in the long term. This is because, on the one hand, frequent sources of error and thus times of non-functioning communication systems are reduced and, on the other hand, investments for later adaptations to newer standards and operational requirements can be made more cost-effectively.

Frequently asked questions about cabling

As a structured cabling refers to the cabling within and between buildings. It is thus the basis of modern IT infrastructure and for systems that are intended for the transmission of data. It is usually divided into primary, secondary and tertiary cabling.

Forward planning is an essential point in all cabling issues. This enables future-proof structures and prevents subsequent changes, additions and unplanned replacement of parts of the network. Structured cabling is hierarchical and uses star and tree topologies. The layout of all components must be adapted to the requirements of modern networks (switched networks). Therefore, planning includes not only cables but also components such as cables, connectors, junction boxes and patch panels. These must be insensitive to interference, guarantee secure transmission and include redundant lines.

The primary area comprises the cabling of buildings at one location to each other. This area includes cables from site distributors to distributors in buildings as well as the building distributors and the cables between the building distributors. Since large distances have to be covered here, fiber optics (multi- or single mode) are particularly used, since a high transmission rate (bandwidth) with very good attenuation (shielding) can be achieved here. For shorter distances copper cables are still in use.

This area covers the cabling of the floors of a building to each other. The floors within buildings are connected, i.e. from the building distributor to the distributors on the floors. Depending on the requirements, fibre optic or copper cables are also used here.

This area is also called floor cabling, because cabling is done within the floors of a building. The floor distributors are connected to the individual junction boxes. So usually the cable goes from a patch panel to junction boxes in the wall, in a cable duct or in a floor tank with an outlet. Fibre optic cables are usually used here as well.

Realisation of modern working environments

The networking of users with the data centre and any other location within the organisation, as well as with external bodies, is becoming increasingly important. Mobile device management, stable server connections and wireless LANs on the company site as well as the combination with mobile data connections support modern working environments. There are fewer and fewer fixed office workstations and the integration of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and notebooksalso increases the load on the networks.
