A well-organized cabling system can reduce power and maintenance costs for businesses and the cost of identifying and resolving errors.

FREMONT, CA: Despite the rise of wireless technologies, structured cabling systems are in high demand as the connective tissue that connects modern networks to the future in a secure and timely manner. Even in the Wireless Age, the IT and telecommunications industries are heavily influenced by structured cabling. Though wireless technologies have grown in popularity, the increased demand for structured cabling solutions is mainly linked to data centers and the IT & telecommunications industry, among many other industrial fields.

Expanding digitalization 

Spreading digitalization activities across different business divisions, the digital revolution in the modern IT & telecoms industry has taken a new leap. One of the key elements driving the transformation is that IT and telecommunications firms' channels, content, consumers, and competitors are increasingly turning digital. The IT & telecommunications business is experiencing an increasing demand for extra data center capacity, particularly as the global workforce shifts to a 'work from home' regime.

Enhancing growth

Globally, the fourth industrial revolution is taking shape. IT and telecommunications organizations in both developed and developing countries are being exposed to the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and its potential benefits in increasing corporate efficiency and profitability. The growing trend of more devices and fewer cables' is predicted to increase the demand for structured cabling in IoT systems to minimize tangled wires and boost data transfer speeds to new highs.

Reducing downtime

IT and telecommunications companies carry enormous loads of managing sophisticated IT and communication infrastructures. Wire and cable management is an unavoidable component of IT infrastructure management, attracting newer and more frequent improvements in cabling solutions now more than ever. Most firms are opting for structured cabling systems due to their low cost. Their simple and orderly cabling arrangement can significantly reduce power and maintenance costs for businesses and the expense of locating and rectifying.

Structured Cabling Will Survive in the Age of Wireless Technology

Almost every IT infrastructure comprises more devices, fewer wires, and shorter runs. However, we are gradually approaching a Wireless Revolution, which will most likely respond to the present needs of IT and telecommunications enterprises for increased data bandwidths. The appealing features of wireless technology are only expected to fuel advances that will lead to even greater adoption across most industrial industries. It is widely forecasted to impact the cable management arena.
