Structured Data Cabling Essentials

Structured data cabling systems are considered a critical infrastructure and invisible utility which serve a wide range of uses, allowing technology to communicate and transmit data through a computer network. Structured data cabling is common within most commercial buildings, data centres, manufacturing facilities, offices, schools and hospitals. However, more and more residential properties are installing infrastructure which supports the evolution of the home network, towards streamed video and connected devices.

This reflects the need for reliably designed and installed end-to-end structured data cabling solutions and for these systems to become a strategic business asset.

The structured data cabling, networking and data centre sectors form part of the electrotechnical industry. ECA continues to work with these wider communities, relevant stakeholders and standard setting organisations in order to help industry and our members thrive.
