Structured Cabling Systems are at the base of modern information network. Designed to accommodate quickly and cost effectively frequent moves adds and changes a structured cabling system can alleviate workflow disruptions and network downtime associated with enterprise restructuring.
Cabling is one network component which tolerates no compromise, it is a lifelong investment which requires extensive engineering & design to be laid out correctly to minimize interference, wire cluttering & reduce distances & costs. Adon Networks is dedicated to providing customers with the highest quality of work & an optimum use of resources when cabling their voice/data infrastructures. Adon networks employs several methods; In premises cabling it is possible to use both: balanced copper & fiber optic cabling and components as well as balanced copper cabling and components. The campus backbone employs only fiber optic cables and components.
Campus Backbone : The campus backbone cabling interconnects the individual buildings of a site. The center of this cabling subsystem is the campus distributor. For the campus backbone with its relatively long transmission links only fiber optic cabling is suitable. The campus backbone employs mainly single-mode-fiber cables that are outstanding for their low loss and high bandwidth. A further argument for fiber optic cables in this area is their electromagnetic immunity (EMI).
Building Backbone : The connection between the building distributor and the various floor distributors is known as the building backbone and forms the vertical riser in the building. With bandwidth requirements increasing, it is advisable to use fiber optic cables in this area also for enhanced future proofing (usually multimode-fiber cables). However, shielded “high-end” copper data cables (bandwidths up to 1200 MHz can also be used in the building backbone for distances of up to 100 m.
Horizontal Subsystem : The horizontal subsystem mainly employs balanced copper cables. The cabling is configured as a star radiating out from the floor distributor to the individual outlets. The distance here should, however, not exceed 90 m otherwise the cabling will not conform to the standards. A further option in the horizontal subsystem is “fiber-to-the-desk”, i.e. fiber optic cabling right up to the workplace. This is employed for very high bandwidth requirements or for long distances. A further advantage of fiber optic cabling in this application is once again its EMI immunity.
