Structured Cabling VS

Structured cabling is an organized approach to cabling infrastructure. To completely grasp this concept, it is important to first consider what non-structured cabling is. In many data centers, the conventional cabling methodology used is defined as “point-to-point”, also known as spaghetti cabling. That method runs patch cables (or “jumpers”) directly to and from the hardware that needs connectivity. In this case, it often results in a complex and disorganized network infrastructure. As businesses grow and technology advancements continue, such cabling methods become increasingly inefficient and troublesome to manage.

Point-to-Point Cabling

However, in the structured wiring system, a series of patch panels and trunks are used to create a structure that allows for hardware ports to be connected to a patch panel at the top of the rack. That patch panel is then connected to another patch panel via a trunk (multi-fiber assembly designed for use in conveyance) in the Main Distribution Area. The MDA is the key aspect of structured cabling. This is where all the Moves, Adds, and Changes can be made with short-length patch cords.

Why you should use COMPUREP for all your Network Cabling

Structured cabling is a vital component in networking systems as it provides a robust, scalable, and reliable foundation for data transmission. By adhering to globally recognized standards, structured wiring facilitates high-speed connectivity, simplifies troubleshooting, and ensures future scalability. Considering these advantages, businesses should prioritize incorporating this cabling into networking infrastructure for optimized performance and productivity.



    Structured cabling ensures a dependable network infrastructure by minimizing errors and failure points. Properly installed and organized cabling reduces the risk of signal interference, data loss, and performance issues, thereby improving the overall system reliability.


     As organizations continue to grow, so does the demand for increased network capacity. With network cabling, businesses can easily scale their network infrastructure to accommodate additional devices and higher data transfer rates. Structured wiring provides the flexibility to adapt to evolving networking requirements without disrupting the entire system.


    The structured cabling framework provides a clear and organized structure, making it easier to troubleshoot and maintain network connections. Well-labeled and standardized cabling infrastructure significantly reduces the time and effort required to diagnose and rectify connectivity issues, resulting in improved network uptime.


    While initial installation costs of cabling might be higher, it offers long-term cost savings. The scalability and reliability of structured wiring reduce the need for frequent upgrades and minimize network downtime.


    Never underestimate the looks! A structured cabling system will look much cleaner than a point-to-point method. Since the changes are done in the MDA versus at the hardware, the hardware can be cabled up and not touched in most instances. This allows the cabling in front of the switch to remain aesthetically pleasing.
