The Construction of a Network Cabling Project
Network cabling refers to installation of a cabling infrastructure which connects a large number of computers, telephones and workstations together. More precisely, network cabling has six subsystems:
- Entrance Facilities: The demarcation point which marks the end of the phone company’s network and the beginning of the wiring structure on the premises of the building.
- Equipment Room: There are always equipment and telecommunication rooms which are used mostly to store equipment and put consolidation points which are there for the users.
- Telecommunications Room: Practically every network has vertical cabling which connects the different equipment and telecommunication rooms which more often than not are located on separate floors.
- Backbone Cabling: The backbone cabling provides interconnection between telecommunications rooms, equipment rooms, access provider (AP) spaces and entrance facilities.
- Horizontal Cabling: When it comes to connecting the telecommunication rooms to individual outlets plenum cabling is used through wireways and special conduits of each floor.
- Work Area: Finally, the equipment on the users’ end is connected to the cabling system through the use of work-area components.
Needless to say, putting up a structured cabling system requires not only a lot of work but also a lot of practical experience and knowledge about construction and networks; every single detail matters, from the materials used, to best practices, to the length the cables. One of the most overlooked aspects of data cabling lies in making the infrastructure itself solid on a physical level. While it is true that in theory the structure is not going to be constantly under a great deal of stress, the support mechanisms installed will serve to hold everything in place, and if it isn’t done right chances are that the network is going to go down sooner rather than later.
Often people ask what kind of cables are generally used for networks? Well, the two most commonly used cables today are CAT5e and CAT6. Cat5e cables are less expensive with a slower speed or bandwidth offered by its alternative the CAT6 cable. There is also the choice between plenum cables and PVC. Most building codes require plenum cable versus riser or PVC cables and it is critical to know that the contractor is pricing out the proper type of cable so that you do not fail any licensing inspections done by the county.

More on Network Cabling
There is another type of cable which is used for longer distances for connecting Telecommunication Rooms or IDF’s – it is fiber optics. These cables can transmit tons more information much faster than other copper cable types for it uses light to transfer information. The effectiveness of optical fiber is largely determined by the foundation and the method in which it was installed. It has the tendency to bend; a proper foundation ensures that they remain fairly straight and functional all the time, which is actually quite hard to accomplish if not performed by a skilled technician.
