Cabling System (SCS)
structured cabling system (SCS) is a set of cabling and connectivity
products that integrates the voice, data, video, and various
management systems of a building (such as safety alarms, security
access, energy systems, etc.).
SCS consists of an open architecture, standardized media and
layout, standard connection interfaces, adherence to national
and international standards, and total system design and installation.
Other than the structured cabling system, voice, data, video,
and building management systems (BMS) have nothing in common
except similar transmission characteristics (analog or digital
data signals) and delivery methods (conduit, cable tray, raceway,
etc.) that support and protect the cabling investment. This
tutorial discusses the elements of a structured cabling system
and the operational advantages such an approach may enable.
indicates, typical costs for building operation and alterations
over a 40-year life cycle far exceed the initial construction
costs. Proper systems-integration planning to optimize the
construction process can reduce these ongoing life cycle costs.
of Structured Cabling
From an investment point of view structured cabling provides
an exceptional ROI. A structured cabling system will outlive
all other networking components and will require only minimal
upgrades. According to International Engineering Consortium:
Construction costs for the cabling of the voice, data, and
BMS can be reduced by up to 30 percent when integrating the
cabling and delivery methods.
Moves, changes, rearrangements, and upgrades can be performed
more cost-effectively, with a potential savings of 25 to 40
percent for material and labor when using an open-office cabling

infrastructure, both Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area
Network (WAN), is the foundation enabling these opportunities
for your business. Whether you are integrating new technology
with legacy systems, upgrading hardware and software (routers,
switches, servers, etc.), performing bandwidth optimization
or prioritizing network traffic, the challenge remains the
