Modern Cabling System Design Trends – Part 2

Office Cabling,New York CityAs discussed by Part 1, the most significant trend in IT (information technology) is the greater reliance of organizations on high-performance data communications (datacom) cabling. Part 2 will cover High Performance Cabling and Aesthetics of Cabling.



High Performance Cabling


The use of high performance cabling of copper and fiber optic cabling is influencing the design of wiring and cabling management systems. Data transmission integrity must be maintained by cable bend radius specifications. Now available are specialized fittings for raceways and other management systems that ensure minimum cable bend radius, preventing damage and maintaining effectiveness. Upcoming technologies such as 10 G/s Ethernet will result in greater demands, making it even more important that every aspect of a structured cabling system ensures high performance.


Being able to provide adequate space for the accommodation of bend radius needs to work in conjunction with the goal of being unobtrusive visually. This objective is affected by the necessity of physically separating power and low-voltage channels to prevent EFT (electrical fast transient) disturbances. Fortunately, a new raceway design maintains complete separation through crossover fittings that provide more space inside the raceway, allowing the bend radius of 10G/s cable’s larger diameter.



Aesthetics of Cabling


The design of modern wiring and cable management systems now aspire to both form and function. Non-metallic raceways with visually attractive profiles in a variety of colors are now available in the marketplace. Stainless steel is also trending, featuring plates that conceal seams. Moreover, components can be combined in matching colors and styles. This ongoing aesthetic drive has led to almost invisible activations that are recessed and flush. Poke-through devices now feature datacom ports and receptacles with sleeker profiles. Accommodating a greater number of outlets, high-capacity service activations are much less obvious than dated low-capacity fittings.



Summary


Product development for wiring and cabling management systems must unceasingly keep pace with increasingly complex datacom requirements. Solutions from manufacturers must be compatible with a wide variety of datacom cabling, allow for both system and operational flexibility, and deliver eye-pleasing aesthetics in the workplace.

Modern Cabling System Design Trends – Part 1

5 Aug 2017

 Data Cabling,Structured Cabling,Washington DC The most significant trend in IT (information technology) is the greater reliance of organizations on high-performance data communications (datacom) cabling. Industry leaders are reporting more than 50% of their market is for data and communications applications. Consequently, their research and development is concentrating on the development of new products and system enhancements.



Objectives of System Design


IT is accelerating rapidly, and people are using it in ways and in areas that only became possible recently. Modern system design aims for maximizing communications capability and flexibility even in limited spaces that emphasize openness and visibility. As a result, the connections between workstations and datacom networks have grown in importance.


Various cable and wire management systems can be used for the management, organization, protection, and connection of cabling infrastructure. These systems allow communication, collaboration, and the flexibility to adapt to the evolving needs of businesses and their workspaces. Five systems are discussed below.



Open Space


Precisely positioned within an open space to allow power and datacom feeds into modular office furniture, poke-through devices can feature audio, video, and control connectors, along with active modules.



Overhead


Flexible and allowing accessibility in drop and open-ceiling applications, overhead systems utilize cable trays that are available in various styles, such as center spine, wire mesh, ladder, and solid bottom.



Perimeter


Easily accessible, expandable, and configurable, perimeter systems are capable of securely routing wiring and cabling along walls. They are primarily used for offices, classrooms, training centers, and conference rooms, offices, classrooms, and training centers.



Tabletop Modular Outlet (TMO)


TMO centers allow easy accessibility to datacom and power on task tables, desktops, study carrels, and lecterns. Their two main styles are recessed and pop-up, linking networked and portable computing.



Vertical Distribution


Visually attractive, vertical distribution units deliver datacom and power from ceilings directly to workstations. Absent the clutter of service poles, they conceal wiring and cabling in an aesthetically pleasing way.
