In telecommunications and networking, structured cabling is the cabling system infrastructure in a campus environment that consists of twisted pair, patch panels and patch codes that work together to support different hardware uses. Good design and installation in a large campus like a school allows quality data and voice communication within offices, datacenters and entire school with limited disruptions and system failure. Thus all Phones, Access Points, Switches, Routers, PBXs, power supply and servers are properly connected in one system.
We deploy Category 5, 6, 7 (Cat 5, Cat 6, and Cat 7) cables, as well as fiber optic cabling. Structured cabling forming the backbone of all networking systems within the institution will require to follow strict standards during deployment to mitigate damage of cables, connected equipment malfunction, Electromagnetic Interference EMI, dust accumulation, overheating and lack of ventilation.
Improper Cabling Causing Ineffective Operations and Maintenance Vs Proper Cabling
At installation and deployment, we maintain the following standards:
- Over bundling cables and placing multiple cables on top of each other as it degrades quality of the cables.
- We ensure cables are twisted together to cancel out Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) issues.
- Cable labeling at each termination point to ensure traceability and identification.
- Testing of each cable during installation and termination.

Physical Security, access control and asset tagging
School campuses attract heavy traffic of different people throughout the day. It is important that schools are able to track and screen guests, staff and students walking in and out and guarantee the safety of resources and people. Consequently, schools today are investing heavily on IP Cameras, Surveillance systems, access control and biometrics, as well as asset tagging of the school property on premise to protect against theft and/or unauthorized access. We are at the forefront of security systems that safeguard areas within the campus like parking lot, library, labs, lecture halls, cafeterias, etc. Some areas require restricted access e.g. finance, lecture halls, exam rooms, and procurement, require restricted access to protect data and information. Biometric and RFID cards here come in handy.
