Importance of structured cabling standards in Arlington Heights, Gurnee, and Joliet IL

Posted on: November 7th, 2014

Modern cabling systems have to accommodate various applications such as voice, data, VOIP, wireless and more. Structured cabling is a complete and comprehensive cabling network consisting of various integrated subsystems that work together to provide an effective modern communication infrastructure.

CPS (Computer Power Systems) installs and maintains structured cabling systems in Alrington Heights, Chicago, Elgin, Elk Grove Village, Gurnee, Joliet, Kenosha, Madison, McHenry, Melrose Park, Milwaukee, Naperville, Oakbrook, Pleasant Prairie, Racine, Rockford, Schaumburg and Tinley Park.

Each structured cabling system has its own unique characteristics and challenges that are influenced by the nature of the building, the size of the network, the nature of any existing network, the type of equipment as well as client requirements. A professional IT company such as CPS will custom tailor a structured cabling system to match your distinct requirements.

Although each installation is unique, structured cabling systems all have to comply with specified standards and specifications. Standardization of cabling systems ensures that each installation meets expected performance and maintenance standards.

Cabling standards in the US are primarily determined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as well as the TIA and EIA. They have published volumes of standards and update these as and when needed. These standards help to ensure quality and professionalism within the cabling industry. Companies such as CPS comply with ANSI and related structured cabling standards. This means that customers can be sure that their cabling systems comply with industry standards. Standards in cabling benefits customers by promoting consistency, flexibility, documentation and performance.

Whether your network is small and localised within a certain building or area or whether it is a larger metropolitan style network, it should be designed and installed in compliance with accepted industry standards. Small localized networks are referred to as local area networks and larger networks are referred to as wide area networks (WAN).

Whatever size network you need, adherence to structured cabling standards will ensure your communication system has the cabling infrastructure to meet the demands of today and the foreseeable future.
