How often does your network crash as a result of that ‘rat’s nest’ your company calls a wiring closet or because someone plugged a network cable looping back to the switch under their desk? All too often, the last item considered in a networked system is the wiring which serves as a physical conduit for all of the network traffic within your company. Wiring installed years ago may no longer be adequate to carry the bandwidth-intensive large data files used in today’s business environment. Files containing pictures, audio or video can bring a network to its knees if the required level of bandwidth isn’t available. Faulty wiring, wiring installed over fluorescent lights and damaged wiring are just a few issues that can cause network slow-downs and crashes.
Years ago companies installed token ring wiring hoping to get better bandwidth and performance. Today, token ring is no longer a viable solution, as it is fraught with beaconing issues (causing network crashes), expensive wiring and exorbitant switch and network card expenses. Today the solution may involve implementing category 5e, category 6a, or category 7 wiring, fiber /optical or a combination of copper and fiber. Each network platform has advantages; the key is to find the best combination. Selecting the right solution depends on your company’s needs and goals.
