In this video, Mike examines the basic component of structured cabling, such as an equipment room, horizontal runs, and the work area.
- It si super simple to build an ethernet network.…I've got a switch over here and I've got a computer.…So to put everything together,…all I need to do is pick any arbitrary port…on the switch and then plug into my individual computers…and this is an ethernet network.…Now, it's completely functional but there's a huge problem.…It's this cable right here.…If I'm in an office environment,…I'm gonna be putting this switch into a closet someplace…and the last thing I want is a bunch of cables…running across the floor for people to trip over…and such.…
So what we have to do is come up with an organization…for our cabling.…And this is what's known as structured cabling.…So through a little but of magic,…let's turn this…into this.…What you're looking at here is a very simplified,…but complete, structured cabling system.…Structured cabling has three big components to it.…Number one, you have a telecommunications closet…or an equipment room.…Inside this room you have your switches…and all of your centralized stuff that runs out via…
