Structured Network Cabling

Structured network cabling is a building site or campus site telecommunications cabling infrastructure that consists of a number of standardized smaller elements (hence structured) called subsystems.

Structured network cabling falls into six subsystems:

  • Entrance Facilities are where the building interfaces with the outside world.
  • Equipment Rooms host equipment which serves the users inside the building.
  • Telecommunications Rooms house telecommunication equipment which connects the backbone and horizontal cabling subsystems.
  • Backbone Cabling connects between the entrance facilities, equipment rooms and telecommunications rooms.
  • Horizontal Cabling connects telecommunications rooms to individual outlets on the floor.
  • Work-Area Components connect end-user equipment to outlets of the horizontal cabling system.

Structured cabling design and installation is governed by a set of standards that specify wiring data centers, offices, and apartment buildings for data or voice communications, using category 5 (CAT 5E) or category 6 cable (CAT 6) and modular sockets.

These standards define how to lay the cabling in a star formation, such that all outlets terminate at a central patch panel (which is normally 19 inch rack-mounted), from where it can be determined exactly how these connections will be used. Each outlet can be 'patched' into a data network switch (normally also rack mounted alongside), or patched into a 'telecoms patch panel' which forms a bridge into a private branch exchange (PBX) telephone system, thus making the connection a voice port.

Lines patched as data ports into a network switch require simple straight-through patch cables at the other end to connect a computer. Voice patches to PBXs in most countries require an adapter at the remote end to translate the configuration on 8P8C modular connectors into the local standard telephone wall socket.

Fiber Optic Cabling

Fiber optic cable, when installed by Agile Networks expert installation personnel, offers organizations a plethora of options. It can be used for video, voice, or data, and is available in both 62.5 and 50 micron single and multi mode varieties.

Agile Networks offers free quotes and fiber optic cable evaluations for both new and existing cabling projects. We do this to provide our customers with up–front and fair, individualized treatment. We certify all cable once we install it, ensuring that your cable will work as expected. We also follow all EIA/TIA codes and are available to work around your schedule for your convenience.

Data Center Design

Agile Networks has the knowledge base to provide the best Data Center design practices available in the market today. Our in-house staff works extensively with the client’s IT department to arrive at cost effective, reliable and scalable solutions. Our industry partnerships with architectural firms and other IT infrastructure designers will give the client a Data Center that is state-of-the art and capable of meeting the most stringent demands.

Demarc Extension

Your demarc is the point where your connectivity line (DSL, T1, T3, etc.) terminates in or just outside of your building and may need to be extended further inside your premise in support of a new networking solution.

While it sounds like a simple operation, there can be many environmental factors to consider across thousands of sites in a large technology solution rollout. Agile Networks’ can manage all of these issues and rapidly perform the required demarc extension at your business.

Advanced Documentation Services

Agile Networks Advanced Documentation Services can greatly increase the manageability and maintainability of enterprise physical infrastructure while reducing the overall cost of ownership. As part of an overall technology deployment and maintenance program, Agile Networks can build a visual database cataloguing each infrastructure element.

Moves, adds, and changes (MAC) are made much easier because you know exactly what you have and where it is located completely integrated with a comprehensive facilities management system that displays your infrastructure assets floor by floor, wiring closet by wiring closet, cable by cable and right down to each individual jack and patch panel.

Data Center Installation

Agile Networks has invested itself in certified BICSI installers and project managers who understand the requirements of delivering large scale IT projects on time and in scope. Agile Networks prides itself in having the lowest change order to project scope ratio in the industry.
