Structured cabling refers to building support using standard elements called subsystems. There are usually five of these subsystems, including the demarcation point, telecommunication space, vertical and horizontal cables, and work area components.
A demarcation point is a point in the network that marks the end of the telephone network company and establishes a connection to the company location where the network is installed. This is the point that determines who is responsible for the installation and maintenance of cables and other equipment. Various companies offer reliable structured cabling in Dallas for the setup.

The telecommunication room is used as a storage area for equipment and also serves as a cable consolidation point serving users in the room where the cable system is installed. Vertical cabling connects different equipment rooms, which are usually located on different floors or at different locations within the building.
Horizontal wiring is used to connect telecommunication rooms to independent electrical outlets located on the floor of a building, on ducts, or in some cases on the floor ceiling. The workspace component connects end-user tools to a retail store.
Standards are governing the structured design of cables and their installation. This standard typically specifies office, data center cabling, and residential buildings for voice or data communications using a variety of structured cables such as fiber optic, Category 5f, Category 6, and other modular connectors.
