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.

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.
