At the end of the day, you may just look at the cables scattered around the floor and hanging from the ceiling and think “eh, as long as everything works”. While everything may be working, for now, this won’t always be the case in the future. Structured cabling systems can seem like something that’s just for visual appeal, but it is so much more than just that. 

If a phone system or a computer’s internet connection goes down, it will become a headache trying to untangle all of those wires and track down which one goes where. All of those cables have an important meaning and if they aren’t treated properly, it can lead to hours of work for what could be a simple 10-minute fix if they were organized and labeled correctly. 

Structured Cabling Systems Are Unique

While the general idea of structured cabling systems is the same, no two setups will be the same. This has to do with the different setups of every business including building layout, phone systems, servers, computers, etc. 

CPT of South Florida goes about cabling in a standard but effective way. This is a good thing as cabling can be complex depending on the number of cables and how they are set up. Doing too much can often make it even more confusing. 

Benefits of Structured Cabling Systems

The four main benefits you’ll find are:

  • Consistent cable design
  • Physical & transmission line requirements 
  • The ability for easy expansion of new systems
  • Easy to follow the documentation of cables

A consistent cable design will not only make following cables easier, but it will make your office seem cleaner and put together. Loose cables dangling over desks and bunched together under tables can often be an eyesore for visiting customers. It helps make you and your office seem much more put together and professional.

Having all cables wrapped together depending on where they are going makes it much easier to add systems to the existing setup. If you need to add a new phone to a desk, now all you need to do is follow the bundle of phone cables and add a new one to it. Simple.

Organized cables also allow you to easily write out and document where each cable is going around the office and into which ports. A well-laid-out guide can make sure that anyone could figure it out, removing a large headache in the future. 

You’ll also see that your cables will have a much longer life span. Cables that are constantly being kicked or moved around can tear the protective sealing around them. When this happens, it can damage the actual wiring meaning you have to re-do the entire wiring.

Our business switched from one large VOIP provider to GoToConnect recommended by CPT of South Florida. Although we had a significant pricing decrease, the biggest benefits were in a much more user friendly and powerful phone system.

CPT has been a great partner for many years. We can always depend on their expertise and recommendations. They have solved complicated network issues with top notch techs. They also recommended and guided us through the installation of the logmein/Jive phone system that turned out to be a great decision and CPT was a big part of the projects success..

2 years ago I replaced my phone system. It was a very difficult situation due to the nature of my business. CPT did a good job. There were some hiccups as there are in anything you do of this magnitude and CPT rectified them. There support in the last 2 years has been very good.
