Structured Cabling

At Zulani Modern Low Voltage, we understand that your business relies on network and data cabling to function efficiently. Data cabling is vital for delivering messages, completing secure transactions, streaming videos, and enabling communication among employees and clients. While data cabling is only a fraction of your overall network costs, poorly designed or installed cabling can cause significant expenses and problems. That's why we have a team of manufacturer and BICSI certified RCDDs and technicians who undergo rigorous training to ensure that your data cabling is designed and installed to the highest standards. Trust us to provide reliable and efficient structured cabling solutions that will help your business thrive.

Network cabling is also known as structured cabling, which is a type of wiring design and installation that helps transmit data across various establishments. We follow specific standards when implementing structured cabling to meet the specific needs of each client.

A well-designed structured cabling system not only fulfills the current requirements but also caters to future needs as the business expands and the network's demands increase.

When we talk about data cabling standards, it refers to how the cables are laid out. We use a central patch panel (usually 19-inch rack-mounted) to connect each modular connection as required. The outlets are then connected to the network switch to be used for ether and IP or PBX phone systems or network usage.

What Is Network Cabling?

Structured cabling is like the wiring system that connects all the electronic devices in a building, like computers, phones, TVs, and speakers. There are different types of structured cabling depending on the size and purpose of the building.

Backbone cabling is like the main road that connects all the rooms in the building to a central hub. It helps all the devices talk to each other, like sending messages or sharing files.

Twisted pair cables are like the smaller streets that connect devices in a room. They are used for things like computers and phones, and they have special protection to keep other devices from interfering with them.

Ethernet cables are a type of twisted pair cable that is used to connect devices in a network. They come in different sizes, and the length of the cable affects how well it works.

There are different types of Ethernet cables, like Cat 5 and Cat 6, that have different speeds and are used for different things. Cat 5 is old and not used much anymore, while Cat 6 and Cat 7 are faster and can transfer more data.

Coaxial TV cables are like the cables that connect your TV to the antenna or cable box. They are made of copper wire with a special shield to protect the signal from interference.

Speaker cables are used to connect speakers to an amplifier, which makes the sound louder. They need to have low resistance so that the sound comes out clearly.

Finally, fiber optic cables are used for really big buildings or places that need a lot of data to be transferred quickly, like data centers. They use light instead of electricity to transfer data, which makes them really fast.
