Electrical cabling is an important and essential part of a business. Basically, structured cabling is a set of standards that determine how to wire a data center, office or building for data or voice communications. Proper structured cabling has to be carried out by a certified structured cabling contractor. Mason Technologies is a structured cabling contractor who knows the ins and outs of installing a cabling network as well as following up with subsequent necessary actions because your cabling network is one of your company's most valuable assets. It's the central nervous system of your organization.
An essential part of structured cabling is to document the cabling. Every minute spent tracking data, reconfiguring cable or searching for the source of a problem means loss of time and productivity and loss of profit. Cable documentation can help maintain the integrity of the network by tracking the continuity through equipment, patch cords, cross-connects, connectors, cables, and outlets. Cable documentation can be an ally against the ravages of system downtime, giving you the power to configure your cable so you have fewer network problems. Beside minimizing network downtime, cable documentation also increases the lifespan of a cabling. It also reduces the number of manpower needed to handle problems.
