Structured Cable Systems - Backbone Cabling:

Structured Cable Systems - Backbone Cabling The backbone is a place in the structured cable system where the cabling network branches out to other buildings as well as other floors of the building. The backbone cabling system simply handles the major network traffic of an organization. The backbone is supposed to provide interconnections between equipment rooms, telecommunications closets as well as entrance facilities. It is usually made up of backbone cables, mechanical terminations, intermediate as well as main cross connects, jumpers or patch cords that are usually used during cross connection between backbones.

Structured Cable Systems - Backbone Cabling The backbone cables used for interbuilding are not the same as those used for intrabuilding . The interbuilding cables are used to transfer traffic between different buildings while intrabuilding cables are used to transfer traffic between closets that are located in the same building. According to the ANSI / TIA / EIA-568-A standard, the structured cables can be either first level or second level. The first level backbone cables are those found between a main cross connect and a horizontal cross connect or an intermediate cross connect.

The backbone usually encompasses several components. First, there are cable pathways that consist of conduits, shafts, floor penetrations as well as raceways. The floor penetrations usually provide routing space for the backbone cables.

Note that it will not be good for you to access areas that are potential sources of electromagnetic induction when you are laying the plan for routing the cables as well as the support structure to be used for copper cabling. The other component of the backbone is the connecting hardware. It is used for the connection of blocks, interconnections, connecting patch panels, cross connections, interconnections or a combination of these components.

They include things like the grounding equipment and fire extinguishers as well as cable support hardware. Cabling connectors are components used for interfacing cables to pieces of equipment or cables to other cables. They usually provide a coupling mechanism that maintains the loss to a low value.

Structured Cable Systems - Backbone Cabling In the event that a fiber cable has been used, the connector will allow light impulses to be transmitted from one cable to another. For the copper cables, the connector makes it possible for electrical signals to be transferred between connectors. A well set structured system should have the connectors aligned, there should not be unintentional separation between them and there should also be efficiency when it comes to the transfer of electricity or light between the connectors. A good connector should be durable.

Structured Cable Systems - Backbone Cabling A durable connector has the ability to allow many insertions as well as withdrawal cycles without malfunctioning. They are among the components that are essential for the integrity of the structured cabling system just like it is for the cable itself.
