Cabling is a subject that I am pretty sure has never been made glamorous or particularly exciting, and I am not going to attempt to change that, but here are a few things that might make you think about how important cabling really is for your business.
Working on the go...
When sitting on a train, plane or tube, with our devices connected, how many of us have stopped to think about all of the cables that are in place, allowing us to work? Not many of us I bet.
I will be honest, I hadn't given it a second thought until I started writing this blog. But cables are everywhere...they keep our devices running, connect us to the Wi-Fi, and keep our vessel of choice on the right route. Just because we can't see them, doesn't mean they aren't there.
When working whilst we travel there are thousands of cables keeping us safe on our journey.
In the office...
People today have very high expectations when it comes to the technology on their desks or in their hand. Everything is expected instantly and if we don't get the experience that we want, some would say that our true colours come out! As Will Ferrell once said at a stand-up gig...
"Before you marry a person you should first make them use a computer with slow internet to see who they really are."
On a more serious note, when you are trying to work it can be difficult to get things done with slow wireless, sluggish systems and machines that buffer at everything. The truth is, businesses can spend as much as they want on the latest and greatest technology, but if your cabling infrastructure is poor, you WILL experience technical problems, making it hard to get the most out of your top notch hardware.
Most offices today have wireless access points throughout their workspace. Each of these points has to be properly cabled for them to work. If the cabling into these access points is to a poor standard, then your wireless service will seriously suffer.
Server rooms and data centres are the engine rooms of business. Without them, we wouldn't be able to function, and without cabling, neither would they. The last place you want to experience technical problems is in your data centre or server room so it is important to invest in quality cabling to avoid disasters that can be prevented by doing the right job.
You might be sensing a theme here...if you don't get your cabling right, everything else suffers.
