Data-voice networks also known as structured cabling represent multiple standards that define how the cables that form a network in an industrial, residential or office building are disposed.
The distribution point is usually placed in a position in the building as centrally as possible, to ensure the most efficient distribution of cables.
Based on how a network is built, we can list the main components, without being exhaustive:
- Cable – is the part that ensures data transport
- Sockets – they provide users with physical access to the network
- Racks – are in fact distribution arrays or cable concentrators
- Patch panels – these are rack mounted components where the cables from the sockets are connected
