Questions about Structured Cabling
Structured cabling questions that most business owners have
What is structured cabling and why is it important?
Structured cabling is the network cable system designed to support business operations. Structured cabling ensures that all of your networking systems have fast and consistent connections in order to maximize performance, reliability, and efficiency. It provides a foundation for reliable communication with software applications, internet resources, video conferencing, alarm-monitoring, VoIP services and more.
Structured cabling also allows for easy scalability as your business grows, ensuring that you don’t have to worry about expensive upgrades or replacements in the future.
How many drops show I get at each station in the work area?
The number of drops per station depends on the types of devices being used, the number of employees in the office, as well as the space available. A minimum of two drops may be necessary depending on your specific needs. These two drops are sufficient for data and voice transmission. For the sake of easy expansion more drops may be installed at the same time. Planning ahead with extra drops is the more cost-effective approach.
How often should I have my structured cabling replaced?
Depending on the type of environment, your structured cabling could last from 25 years and beyond. You should have your cabling inspected at least every 5 years to get an accurate diagnosis of its condition and receive advice on when it is time to replace it. With regular maintenance, you can ensure that your cabling always runs reliably and efficiently.
How do I know if my business needs structured cabling?
The most common signs of structured cabling problems in your business are slow internet connection, poor audio and video quality, regular dropped calls and alarm system malfunctions. If you’re experiencing any of these issues, it’s time to consult an expert to help you evaluate the performance of your current cabling system.

Certification also confirms that the cabling installation meets industry requirements for safety and long-term reliability. It’s important to certify your network cables for secure, efficient and consistent operation.
Certifying your network cables is the process of testing that the cable will perform correctly and reliably when used in its intended application.
