Structured Cabling

A structured cabling system is a complete system of cabling and associated hardware, which provides a comprehensive communications infrastructure. This infrastructure serves a wide range of uses, such as voice and data services within a local area network.

Cabling Structures

There are three main parts to most cabling structures:

  • Core Backbone- Cabling infrastructure is usually a vertical cabling system (running between floors)
  • Horizontal- lateral cabling that routes to the workstations (typically horizontal runs along each floor)
  • Equipment Room-normally where the patch cabinet and servers on the Local Area Network (LAN) are connected to each other and hooked to the Wide Area Network (WAN) connections.

Every structure cabling system is unique due to environmental variations. The U.S cabling industry accepts the American National Standard Institute (ANSI), in conjunction with TIA/EIA, as the leading organization for providing and maintaining standards and practices within the profession.


Benefits of Standards include:

  • Uniform documentation
  • Consistency of design and installation
  • Compliance to State and Federal regulation
  • Provides basis for proposed system expansion and other changes
