The need to deliver more user-friendly cabling networks has led to a change in the infrastructure model for structured cabling systems. This white paper examines some of the issues involved with the new architecture and provides guidance on design and testing of such systems to facilitate successful implementation.
Clearly careful design is required in the planning of a Data Center. Managing the clients' expectations from the outset is crucial if an acceptable compromise is to be reached. Ultimately the question to ask is "How valuable is your data?".
Installation of a cabling system in healthcare facilities involves consideration of many factors. The healthcare field provides one of the most demanding environments for a structured cabling system. Facilities are designed to operate for 50 years or longer. Adoption of 10GBase-T Ethernet is rapidly increasing and is expected to be the standard for the foreseeable future in healthcare facilities.
This article discusses the best solution for the modern day healthcare facilty.
With most of the new technologies that continue to flood the world today, there is a myriad of accompanying “best practices” that also emerge. Not surprisingly, managing all of the change wrought from new technologies is a tremendous task. New cabling media, wireless media, factory-built cabling systems and changing standards are placing an enormous amount of stress on designers, installers and end users. This stress comes in the form of new challenges.
It is a widely accepted statistic that 70% of LAN failure is attributed to cabling**. This does not mean organizations are purchasing faulty systems, on the contrary, modern cabling is a stable system which seldom fails and is backed in most cases by comprehensive long term 25 year warranties. Network failures attributed to cabling are effectively management failings in the form of poor control and documentation practices that must be addressed.
