Structured Cabling Installation
Can an electrician install structured cabling for our business?
Yes they can. However, we recommend working with IT professionals with IP network design experience. This is because I an IT company with structured cabling installation experience understands how to design network cabling which is secure, and supports hardware expansion. Not to mention, IT professionals often charge less, and do it correctly the first time!
What happens if our structured cabling is installed incorrectly? This is where it gets ugly. First off, bad cabling is sometimes as expensive to remove as it would have been to install it correctly the first time. Secondly, bad cabling can cost you thousands of dollars of IT troubleshooting before you realize it was the cabling all along. Thirdly, cabling usually connects back to network distribution centers (or “frames”). If your cablers plan terminations that are accessible to unauthorized people, this is like leaving the back door to a bank open.
If you are looking for secure network cabling with room to expand in the future, then a professional structured cabling service provider is highly recommended.

Our Structured Cabling Process
Review Cable Pathways
We assess whether there Is enough space in the existing conduit to install structured cabling, and whether the conduit meets the applicable building code.
Review Building Firewall
If the pathway passes through your building’s firewalls, and we get permission to drill and fire-stop the firewalls to make the cable pathway.
Review Building dmark, Main Distribution Frame (MDF), and Intermediate Distribution Frames (IDF)
Where is the building dmark and MDF? and does the building have IDFs? If the building does not, then installing these may need to be included in the structured cabling plan.
Detailed structured cabling design, specific to your building and IT infrastructure.
Structured Cabling and Network Cabling Rough-in Installation
Cabling is installed in your building and is pulled down the cable pathways from the frame areas to the face plate (user-end) positions. This is referred to as “Rough-in”.
Structured Cabling and Network Cabling Terminate, Labeling & Testing
The roughed-in cables are punched into the patch-panels, and then connected to the face plates (user-end) with a jack. We then test that the cable is working, and label data cables with a “D + unique number” and voice cables with a “V + unique number”.
