Correct Installation Of Structured Cabling

If you are looking to extend your office or move your business premises, you will know that you are going to be faced with some installation problems.  Structured data cabling installation is a complex process. Without the correct guidance from an experienced professional – like Systems Integration you could be putting your business and employees at risk.

This month we take a look at why it is important to use professionals such as ourselves to help you with your office move or extension

Data cabling is a method that connects electronic devices within an IT system. It can connect many devices such as PCs, phones, and security cameras. You may be thinking – connecting electronic devices is easy. However, that statement couldn’t be further from the truth.

A structured cabling installation plan will need to be created to ensure that cables are grouped safely – to avoid any interference to the network. There are a lot of factors you need to consider, like the equipment you use and the floorplan of your workspace.

Our expert team use their IT knowledge/experience – to put together a strategic plan unique to your business and organisation’s needs. We ensure that cables are labelled accordingly and installed safely so your network can run efficiently. Without this knowledge and hindsight, you could end up with your system being correctly installed. Which will cause problems to your network further down the line.

Incorrect installation equates to hazards
Failure to install your structured cabling system correctly could pose a serious safety hazard to your and staff, communication issues for your business and serious technical issues to your IT infrastructure.  For example, bundling together too many cables will create excess heat, which can cause damage and interfere with the network. It can also pose a fire hazard. Therefore, it is crucial that you hire an experienced provider who has the right knowledge.

There are also unsafe locations for you to install a data cabling system. For example, you should avoid running data cables beneath any flooring or over an electrical conduit. Installing structured cabling in the wrong place will be deemed unsafe, and you are putting your workplace and employees at risk.

Avoid costly mistakes
If you take structured cabling installation into your own hands, you could end up making costly mistakes that have a detrimental impact on your business. The System Integration Engineers understand that companies need to maximise their profits to grow. That is why we truly believe that elements such as data cabling installation should be left to an experienced professional. Failure to install your system correctly could cost you. We also have foresight ensuring that when we lay cabling, we build it on the premise that you will be looking to extend in the future, making it a scalable.

One of the great things about structured cabling installation is that it is meant to save your business money. By simplifying your IT system, you no longer have to deal with multiple systems that can cost you a lot of money to run.
