What is cabling infrastructure? Installing cabling infrastructure at your facility allows you to have a variety of electronic components working together in concert. For example, cabling infrastructure is needed to support WiFi, telecommunications and electricity. In addition to the wires and connectors themselves, cabling infrastructure features a series of panels and trunks that provide power for various plugs and ports.

Why is cabling infrastructure useful? Cabling infrastructure is useful because it provides an organized way to structure cabling and electronics throughout your building. You can trace what ports are connected to what cables, allowing you to save time and energy. Cabling infrastructure also provides a clean and organized set up. No knots or tangles. That means less risk of short-circuits or other malfunctions.

Why should I use cabling infrastructure at my building? If you don’t have an organized cable infrastructure in place, it’s easy to make mistakes when adding new equipment to your network. Plus, the tangled messes that can occur are frustrating for anyone. In addition, organized cabling gives each server room the ability to breathe. It also keeps your system from overheating.

Where can cabling infrastructure be utilized? Cabling infrastructure provides a foundation for many businesses, including hospital chains, technology companies, financial institutions and schools.
