Structured cabling systems reduce costs. They reduce costs during installation by requiring less material and labor than a non-structured solution

What are the benefits of structured cabling instead of a non-structured solution?

Once the structured cabling system is installed, they cost less to maintain when additional connections are needed or end-user requirements change. Having a structured cabling system in place further reduces costs when it comes to troubleshooting voice and data problems on your network by having separate physical segments to analyze.

The standards dictate how the cable is to be distributed within the building infrastructure, the methods of cable management to use, the proper termination of both ends of the cable, and the acceptable readings when certifying the cables. Structured cabling is typically installed in a star formation where end-user connections are terminated at a local point, called an Intermediate Distribution Frame (IDF), and then each IDF is connected via a backbone cable to a main location, called a Main Distribution Frame (MDF). This is different from non-structured cabling where each end-user connection is connected directly back to the MDF.
