Top Structured Data Cabling Scenarios to Avoid

Effective and efficient data cabling is crucial in supporting any business’s future growth and success. It reduces the risk of accidents and errors, increases productivity, and allows for easy integration of new technologies. However, certain scenarios can harm your structured data cabling system. Here are the top damaging scenarios to be aware of and avoid at all costs.

Lack of Network Redundancy

Unforeseen power outages can occur anytime, potentially causing significant disruption to your business operations. To prevent this, it is essential to have both an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and a backup cabling network in place. This will ensure consistent power and connectivity, safeguarding your business from losing productivity or vital data.

Mismatched Cabling 

Using components from multiple manufacturers can create mismatched cabling within your network, leading to potential malfunctions and connectivity issues. Maintaining consistency in your structured cabling system is important to ensure optimal performance and avoid any compatibility issues.

Disorganisation & Disorder 

Hiring different services for installing, repairing, and maintaining your structured cabling can result in a disorganised system. Sloppy workmanship and poor recordkeeping can also contribute to a disorderly network. Proper labelling and patching should not be overlooked, as this can greatly impact the ease of managing and troubleshooting your system. 

Wi-Fi Problems

Incorrect installation of Wi-Fi devices, outdated cabling, and conflicting Wi-Fi standards are common causes of Wi-Fi issues. Poor placement of your Wi-Fi devices can also result in intermittent connectivity and insufficient coverage. Therefore, it is important to ensure proper installation of all Wi-Fi components and the use of up-to-date cabling to avoid any connectivity problems. 

Intermittent Faults 

Unidentified intermittent faults in your structured cabling system can be a major headache, causing disruptions and downtime. Faulty outlets and patch leads are common culprits, but identifying the source of these faults can be difficult and time-consuming. Investing in a reliable and trustworthy service to install, repair, and maintain your structured data cabling to save time and money in the long run is best.
