Structured Cabling Solutions for Commercial Buildings

In today’s business landscape, whether you’re in Texas or elsewhere, structured cabling plays a vital role in ensuring reliable and fast communications. It serves as the foundation for all your data, voice, and audiovisual needs. The benefits of structured cabling are numerous and include flexibility, reliability, scalability, aesthetics, and more.

Many networks are outdated, and businesses are increasingly upgrading to Gigabit and even 10 Gigabit networks to meet their current and future requirements.

True Protection specializes in providing high-quality installation services for various certified voice and data cabling solutions, including Category 5e, Category 6, fiber-optic, buried, aerial, and wireless networks. Give us a call to schedule a free on-site or virtual quote.

Structured Cabling Installs

Ethernet Cabling Installation

Ethernet cable installations are prevalent for connecting devices like PCs and routers within a local network. Different categories of copper-based Ethernet cables are used based on data transmission speed and distance requirements. Cat6 supports up to 10Gbps while fiber optic installations offer even greater speeds and longer distances, transmitting data using light instead of electrical currents.

Voice & Data Cable Installation

Voice and data cable installations serve phone systems and internet connections. These systems utilize categories of copper-based Ethernet and glass-based fiber optic cabling, depending on end-user requirements. Data cabling contractors run cables through walls and ceilings, connecting devices back to telephone closets/telecommunication enclosures and server rooms.

Security System Cabling

Security system cabling is another network system connected by low voltage structured cabling. Typically, Cat5e or Cat6 cables run through walls to connect cameras to a server or network video recorder equipment. These cables can also provide power to security cameras and other devices through Power-Over-Ethernet (PoE) technology, eliminating the need for separate power wiring.

Structured Cabling Installation FAQs

Structured cabling is an organized system of low voltage wiring that connects various devices to your network, including computers, telephones, security cameras, and more, enabling data and voice communication.

Structured cabling comprises six subsystems, each with its specific function and components:

  1. Horizontal Cabling: Connects work area outlets to a telecommunications closet, encompassing most of the cabling in the system. It includes cable terminations, telecommunication outlets, transition points, cross connections, and more.
  2. Vertical Cabling: Also known as Backbone Cabling, it forms the core subsystem connecting telecommunication rooms, entrance facilities, equipment rooms, and separate buildings within a campus. It involves cables and routing components like conduits and raceways.
  3. Entrance Facility Structured Cabling: This subsystem connects a building to an external data/telecommunication service provider or to a private network cabling system. It adheres to electrical codes enforced in the building’s location.
  4. Telecommunications Enclosure: Where horizontal and vertical cabling subsystems terminate and cross-connect. Components include cross connects, patch cords, auxiliary and connecting equipment.
  5. Consolidation Point Structured Cabling: For larger networks, centralized equipment rooms are used to house major equipment like routers and servers. Smaller networks can use the entrance facility or telecommunications enclosure for this purpose.
  6. Work Area Components: Connect the end user’s workstation equipment (computers, phones, copiers, etc.) to the telecommunications connector, which is the result of the horizontal cabling subsystem. Components include outlets, patch cables, PC adapters, and more.
