Commercial Structured Cabling & Security

Structured Cabling

A properly installed network is the key to seamless connectivity across all of your facilities. This foundation is built upon structured cabling, the physical infrastructure of cables and server racks that facilitates each connection.

Our team at Solucom Technology consists of experts in the field of data network implementation. Setting the standard for communications in Western Provinces, every new project will be handled from the initial design to the final testing to verify reliable connectivity.

A structured cabling installation involves the following elements:

  • Vertical (Backbone) cabling. Vertical cabling connects the various telecommunication rooms using high pair count copper or multimode or single mode fiber.
  • Horizontal cabling. Horizontal cabling connects outlets in a work area with the telecommunications closet. This cabling is run either above the ceiling or below the floor. These cables also must be no longer than 90 meters. An extra 6 meters can be added with patch cables, but patch cables are limited to 10 meters.
  • Work Area. The work area is basically any space that contains end-user telecommunications devices. For example, the work area includes telephones, laptops, desktop computers, and copy machines.
  • A telecommunications closet. This is an enclosed area that contains equipment, cable terminations, cross-connects, and distribution frames. A telecommunications closet can be an entire room or a simple cabinet, depending on network size.
  • An equipment room. An equipment room contains complex equipment like servers and network switches along with mechanical terminations. Setting up an equipment room is not for the faint of heart. Data cable contractors spend countless hours training hands-on to gain the skills needed to set up an equipment room to high organizational standards.
  • An entrance facility. This space houses equipment that connects to the network cabling from an outside service provider (AT&T, Comcast, Verizon).
  • High-speed Ethernet cables. The Ethernet cables commonly used in a structured cabling system are fast CAT6, CAT6E and CAT6A cables. These cables are capable of the highest transfer speeds, but CAT6 cables are about ten times faster than CAT5 and create less ‘crosstalk.’
  • Documentation. Professional structured cabling contractors will properly document and label faceplates and patch panels according to 606-B industry standards. These standards require that all cables be labeled at both ends with machine-generated text that isn’t easily scratched or rubbed off. The 606-B standards also require a documented cable and component system that gets updated whenever there is a change. Documenting the entire installation helps rebuild or repair a configuration damaged by elements like fire or water.



Who doesn’t want more speed? When you have a structured cabling system infrastructure, you don’t need to worry about speed. You won’t have to wonder if you’ll waste ten minutes fixing the quality of your next video conference call before getting down to business.

As a standard, structured cabling infrastructure utilizes CAT6, CAT6E and CAT6A Ethernet cables to maximize data transfer speed.


With a structured cabling system in place, network upgrades and troubleshooting will be much easier. You won’t be prevented from growing your business because of outdated IT infrastructure. When you grow your network, performance will increase rather than be disrupted.

Have you ever called in a network specialist to help you with a problem, only to watch them spend an hour reorganizing your cables before they can start troubleshooting? That scenario will be avoided with structured cable infrastructure.

Network upgrades will be easier as well. For example, if you choose to upgrade existing network components or switch vendors, a structured cabling system will support a smooth transition.

Whether you have an in-house IT team or an external IT services provider, they’ll appreciate the simplicity and ease of your setup.


How many employees are using devices connected to your network at the same time? Can your network handle the load, or does your network go down frequently? What do your employees do when the network goes down? You probably still pay them even though they can’t get their work done.

Downtime is costly. For 25% of businesses, one hour of downtime can cost as much as $400,000. You can drastically reduce downtime that kills profits and productivity with structured cabling. Not only will you avoid natural downtime from network overload, but you’ll also avoid the lengthy downtime required to fix those issues.
