IT and Telecom Sector Transformed By Structured Cabling

Telecom Tech Outlook | Monday, June 27, 2022

Even in the wireless era, the IT and telecommunications industries rely heavily on structured cabling.

Although wireless technologies have grown in popularity, data centers and the IT & telecommunications industry, among many other industrial sectors, are mainly responsible for the rising demand for structured cabling solutions.

According to the report, the data center and IT & telecom industries account for more than 85% of the worldwide structured cabling market.

Let's look at why, even in the wireless era, the IT and telecommunications industries rely heavily on structured cabling.

IT & Telecommunications Industry: Transitioning from "Go Digital" to "Grow Digital"

Structured cabling may help digital transformation projects by providing a physical framework for linked devices, patch panels, and other fiber optic system cabling components. It may also help in adopting new networking technologies, which is one of the main reasons most businesses migrate to structured cabling solutions in their existing IT infrastructures.

Structured Cabling Reduces Downtime and Increases Cost Efficiency

Due to its low cost, most companies gravitate to structured cabling solutions. Their organized and easy cabling arrangement may significantly decrease organizations' power and maintenance expenses and the cost of discovering and fixing problems. Moreover, businesses are increasingly looking for structured cabling systems with a flexible architecture to support new telecom technologies, making digital migrations easier and less expensive.

Moreover, reduced downtime is one of the most significant benefits of using structured cabling solutions.

Codes will continue to evolve because of the proliferation of the Internet of Things.

The fourth industrial revolution is taking form throughout the world. As a result, IT and telecom companies in developed and developing countries are becoming more aware of the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology and its potential benefits for boosting corporate efficiency and profitability.

Due to the increasing usage of IoT, the traditional point-to-point cabling infrastructure will soon turn obsolete. Moreover, the growing trend of more devices and fewer wires is expected to improve the demand for structured cabling in the IoT systems to reduce tangled connections and enhance data transmission speeds to modern highs.

Structured Cabling Will Survive in the Age of Wireless Technology

Nearly every IT infrastructure in the 'Information Age' comprises more devices, fewer cables, and shorter runs. Nevertheless, we are gradually approaching a 'Wireless Revolution,' which will most probably respond to the current demands of IT and telecommunications firms for increased data bandwidths. Furthermore, expectations are that the appealing features of wireless technology will fuel advancements that will lead to even greater adoption across most industrial domains. As a result, it is widely projected to influence the cable management field significantly.
