How Structured Cabling Benefits Healthcare Networks

how structured cabling helps healthcare networks

Healthcare networks that rely on fast data transmission benefit from structured cabling systems.

Healthcare networks are experiencing a constant and increased volume of data and demand for rapid transmission of that data. Everything healthcare networks use, including diagnostic equipment, patient information systems, and remote video consultation requires network connectivity. In addition to healthcare technology, healthcare facilities require security systems, alarms, patient monitoring, food services, and more to maintain regular operations. Healthcare networks must be able to store and transfer massive amounts of information and plan for a future of continued increase in demand. Structured cabling systems are a vital part of maintaining an operational and high-functioning healthcare network and provide the following crucial benefits. 

Better Network Accommodations

As data demands grow, healthcare networks need to find network transmission speeds that continue to increase. They also require increasing bandwidth levels, which determines the volume of data that can travel through the network at once. Structured cabling makes it possible for a network to accommodate the various technical needs required at once. If any patient systems, nursing stations, intercoms, or more fail, this could create significant and damaging delays or mistakes. 

Reliable Structure

Healthcare networks use different kinds of cables and different types of connections to handle all of them. Structured cabling creates a design that allows for easy and fast reconfiguration throughout a facility, so extended downtime can be avoided. The system is built with considerations for redundancy, security, disaster recovery, and outlet density. 

Keeping Things Connected

When setting up, expanding, or repurposing elements of a structured cabling system, the cabling professionals use a mix of cables that comply with international standards. This helps ensure safety, information security, and affordability. The structured cabling infrastructure includes entrance facilities, backbone cabling, telecommunications rooms, and work areas that help keep the structured healthcare network running smoothly.
