Key Benefits and Components of Structured Cabling Systems

A structured cabling system (SCS) is a set of cabling and connectivity products that integrate voice, data, and other ELV systems on the premise (e.g. safety alarms, security access, and energy systems). It is a web that connects all the devices through more minor standardized elements - providing a reliable and future-proof solution to a wide range of communication requirements.

Benefits of Structured Cabling Systems

One of the most significant benefits of structured cabling is that it is a future-proof, scalable system; even if the company undergoes a sudden surge of growth, a structured system can keep pace with the growing needs. Another key benefit is the high level of straightforwardness in managing the system – after the initial planning and setup – as it eliminates the complexity of having multiple wiring infrastructures.

In the past, point-to-point cabling was used, which meant every piece of hardware used its cable with long runs from point to point. This often led to a mess of wiring, posing a safety hazard and a high risk of human error with multiple unorganized cabling structures. When an issue arises, the time taken to identify the root cause could be significant and cause workflow disruptions and network downtime. A structured cabling system makes the diagnosis of issues easier and simplifies the replacement of faulty components. While a structured system is a greater upfront investment than a point-to-point one, it pays for itself over time through lowered IT costs and increased employee productivity.
