Structured Cabling is defined as building or campus telecommunications cabling infrastructure that consists of a number of standardized smaller (structured) elements. A properly designed and installed structured cabling system provides a cabling infrastructure that delivers predictable performance, as well as has the flexibility to accommodate moves, additions, and changes; maximizes system availability; provides redundancy; and future proofs the usability of the cabling system. Structured Cabling 101 is an overview course created for FSR on cabling design and installation best practices based on industry standards (TIA and BICSI) to educate their sales, reps and customers. This presentation covers the main components that comprise a building’s ICT (information communications’ technology) cabling system including, backbone cabling, horizontal cabling, pathways and spaces, work areas, bonding and grounding, administration, and testing. At the end of each chapter is a Q&A quiz/review. This class is two 1-hour sessions with a 15 minute break.
