What is Structured Cabling?

Structured cablling by Milestone Communications.Structured Cabling is the lifeline for the entire Information Technology network and is the core competency of Milestone Communications. It is the foundation on which all business functions depend. A properly designed, installed and administered cabling system reduces costs through each phase of its life cycle; installation; moves; adds and changes; maintenance and administration. The importance of cabling should be neither overlooked nor underestimated.

Our qualified team will create a schematic of your current network infrastructure, as well as create a proposed solution so that you can see all the benefits available to make your company's network more safe and secure.

Benefits of Structured Cabling

From an investment point of view structured cabling provides an exceptional ROI. A structured cabling system will outlive all other networking components and will require only minimal upgrades. According to International Engineering Consortium:

  • Construction costs for the cabling of the voice, data, and BMS can be reduced by up to 30 percent when integrating the cabling and delivery methods.
  • Moves, changes, rearrangements, and upgrades can be performed more cost-effectively, with a potential savings of 25 to 40 percent for material and labor when using an open-office cabling approach.


Additional advantages in using structured cabling:

  • Consistency - Same cables exist everywhere in the building.
  • Support of multi-vendor equipment - You can mix and match vendors.
  • Simplifies moves adds and changes - As your company grows and/or moves locations with structured cabling your network resources are always ready to go.
  • Simplifies troubleshooting - Wired structuring systems problems are easier to isolate and fix.
  • Support of future applications - A Cat6A or Cat6 compliant system will support future applications with little (if any) system upgrades.
