Structured Network Solution – Organize Cables, Organize IT
Technology has done miracles these days, wireless internet, wireless phones and even wireless chargers. However, even in today’s world, the strength of any IT infrastructure is the “Cabling”. The structured and organized Cabling gives you a robust and reliable IT infrastructure.
Structured Network Cabling – Basics of Connecting wires
Let’s start with a simple example of our house to understand the concept of “Structured Cabling”. We all have electricity in our house, how do we distribute it? The main source of electricity is provided by the service provider like DGVCL/GEB or Torrent Power if you are in Surat or Gujarat and maybe Reliance Power or MSEB in case of Mumbai or Maharashtra. They provide us with the electricity till the main meter or the main switch of the house. Then, our interior designer’s electrician distributes the electricity to the entire house by wires. Now, does the electrician provides one dedicated wire to each of your appliances directly from the Main switch? NO! they structure it in a way that only one cable is gone in each room or area and connected to a switchboard, and switchboard will then provide electricity to all the appliances and electric equipment of that room, Right? This is called Structured Network Cabling.
Now you know 70% of Structured Network. For the rest of 30%, you need Structured Network experts like Premware Services India LLP (Formally known as ‘PC Helpline’).
Just like explained in above example the Structured Cabling is required for all the services like electricity, telephone connection, internet, internal network, Local Area Network (LAN), a connection between other hardware like Printer, Scanner and Network Attached Server (NAS).
The businesses, nowadays, are mostly dependent on the IT and most of the operations, sales and services of businesses depend on IT. IT is the backbone of the business and similarly, the proper wiring and Structured Cabling is the backbone of IT. Cables do not just connect hardware to another one but they connect the departments, key function areas and manages the flow of information & communication within and outside the company. Hence, the selection of right cables and the selection of the right Networking Service Provider are few of the most crucial decisions to take.

Types of Cables and their Uses
Ribbon Electric Cables
Ribbon Cables are named so because of its look of thin flat wire looking like colourful ribbons. These types of Cables can transmit multiple data at a time. They are generally used in connecting internal parts of CPU like a connection with motherboard as well as for the internal connection of networking devices.
Generally, the high voltage of electricity or current passes through the Copper Wire, however, if they are kept open or unshielded, it can cause some accident or short circuit, hence these copper wire or any other metal wire are generally encased or shielded in a standard conductive layer. They are protected with one or more layers to safeguard the wire from external hit & cut.
Twisted Pair Cables
Twisted Pair Cables have two or more insulated copper wires. They are coloured wires and are twisted with each other. These are the main cables of networking and connecting the hardware, telephones and LAN. There are various types of Twisted Cables used depending on the load it is going to carry. Widely used and common wires of these types are Cat 5 & Cat 6 cable wires. Cat wires start from Cat 1 and go up to Cat 7. Cat 1 is used in telephonic lines and Cat 2 up to Cat 7 are known as Ethernet cables or Lan Cables. Internet Cable has a different capacity of speed. Cat 5 is most commonly used as on today as they can carry up to 100 MBPS of internet speed and Cat 6 carries up to 10 GBPS. The other connectors like RJ45 Wire are also type of Twisted Pair Cables, RJ means “Registered Jack” and it contains 8 separate wires.
Coaxial Cables consist of solid copper or steel conductor plated with copper, enclosed in the metallic braid and metallic tape. This is entirely covered with an insulated protective outer jacket. These types of cables are used for computer networking and audio-video networking.
Fibre Optics Cable
Fibre Optics Cables are the most modern types of cables and it transports optical data from source to receiving data. They are most commonly used in the world of cables and are used in various applications; Patch Cords also consist of Optical Fibre Cable. They are mostly used in high-end equipment where accuracy is required most, like Medical Equipment, Défense, Broadcasting, Lighting and decorations, Communication.
Benefits of Structured Network
- Most reliable networking option.
- Long-lasting infrastructure – the studies have proved that the cabled structures last for more than 16 years.
- Cost-effective – The total cost of cables occupies only 5% of total networking expenses.
- Future-Oriented – the structured Network gives you freedom to add more appliances and equipment without any modification. You can design the network in such a way that satisfies your future requirements as well.
