Voice and Data Cabling Networks are crucial to modern enterprise businesses and it is a fact that many businesses would be unable to function without them. Structured cabling systems are the common pathways that allow voice and data to flow seamlessly between users within both WANs and LANs.
This course provides entry level information, for technicians or engineers, in the basic architecture of a structured cabling system. It describes the different types of cabling media available, their uses and evolution from simple voice system cabling to modern high speed data networks. Participants will be introduced to the international standards and codes used throughout these systems and will gain an understanding of implementation practices and tooling.
