Structured cabling is a telecommunications cabling infrastructure consisting of a number of standardized smaller elements called subsystems.
Structured cabling falls into five subsystems:
- A Demarcation point is the connection point where the telephone company network ends and the customer’s on-premise wiring connection begins.
- Equipment or Telecommunications Rooms contain equipment and wiring points that serve the users inside a building.
- Vertical or Riser Cabling connects between the equipment/telecommunications rooms on different floors.
