The advantages of an adequately defined structured cabling system are essential during a crisis. FiberPlus can make structured cabling a part of your long-term disaster plan in your data centers and networks. Keep reading to learn about the value of structured cabling during volatile times.
What is the Purpose of Structured Cabling?
Structured cabling is an infrastructure that is based on several common components like multi-copper or multi-fiber custom-length trunk wires. FiberPlus can help you with a structured design solution that will lead to a long-lasting data center cabling infrastructure. Moreover, the copper and fiber ports needed for future development are expanded and dispersed within the cabinets in your data center. This approach allows the active ports to be supervised, brought into service, or removed from service in an indifferent setting.
In addition, this solution optimizes system availability and everlasting usability of the cabling system. Which can minimize the possibility of downtime without risking the active machines or switch ports. Fortunately, this is appropriately completed using standard components and patch cables (less than a meter or two in length).
Point-to-Point Cabling is the Opposite
Furthermore, point-to-point cabling requires fiber cables connecting one switch or server directly to another switch or server. For instance, imagine having to run a cable from the second floor of your house to your basement’s circuit breaker box each time you had to charge your cell phone. This approach is not a maximizing way to have your data center installed.
Why is this Essential Today?
So, why is structured cabling vital during a crisis? The need to integrate capacity faster to your data centers as the market changes to a “work from home” mode has never been crucial. FiberPlus understands that your network and data centers must modify new needs faster. Integrating capacity and redistributing assets efficiently with standard products during a crisis is beneficial for your business.
