Installing Data Cabling In Your Office: Why You Should Never Do It Yourself

IT Support Technician

Structured data cabling installation is a complex process. Without the correct guidance from an experienced professional – like Texaport, you could be putting your business and employees at risk.

If you are thinking about installing structured cabling in your office, you should always consider enlisting the help of a professional. This blog is here to explain why.


It Takes Proficient Planning


Data cabling is a method that connects electronic devices within an IT system. It can connect many devices such as PCs, phones and security cameras. You may be thinking – connecting electronic devices is easy. However, that statement couldn’t be further from the truth. A structured cabling installation plan will need to be created to ensure that cables are grouped safely – to avoid any interference to the network. There are a lot of factors you need to consider, like the equipment you use and the floorplan of your workspace.

Our team uses their IT knowledge – to put together a strategic plan unique to your organisation’s needs. They will ensure that cables are labelled accordingly and installed safely so your network can run efficiently. Without the right knowledge, you could end up installing your system incorrectly, which will cause problems to your network further down the line.


Wrong Installation Poses A Safety Hazard


Structured cabling installation is not a job to be taken lightly. Failure to install your structured cabling system correctly could pose a safety hazard to your workplace and staff. For example, bundling together too many cables will create excess heat, which can cause damage and interfere with the network. It can also pose a fire hazard. Therefore, it is crucial that you hire an experienced provider who has the right knowledge.

There are also unsafe locations for you to install a data cabling system. For example, you should avoid running data cables beneath any flooring or over an electrical conduit. Installing structured cabling in the wrong place will be deemed unsafe, and you are putting your workplace and employees at risk.


You Can End Up Making Costly Mistakes


If you take structured cabling installation into your own hands, you could end up making costly mistakes that have a detrimental impact on your business. At Texport, we understand that companies need to maximise their profits to grow. That is why we truly believe that elements such as data cabling installation should be left to an experienced professional. Failure to install your system correctly could cost you.

One of the great things about structured cabling installation is that it is meant to save your business money. By simplifying your IT system, you no longer have to deal with multiple systems that can cost you a lot of money to run.
