Richman Informatics has acquired vast experience in design and implementation of all standards of structured cabling systems from Cat 5e, Cat 6A up to the newly IEEE ratified 10 Gb/s copper Ethernet cables, incorporating all industry advancements into a wide variety of environments and applications to ensure the LAN runs trouble free. Moreover Fiber Optic installations form an integral part of most installed LANs and almost all WANs, and as such we have a fully trained and conversant staff able to deal with all aspects of fiber optic installations.
Structured cabling design and installation is governed by a set of standards that specify wiring data centers, offices, and apartment buildings for data or voice communications using various kinds of cable, most commonly category 5e (CAT-5e), category 6 (CAT-6), and fibre optic cabling and modular connectors. These standards define how to lay the cabling in various topologies in order to meet the needs of the customer, typically using a central patch panel (which is normally 19 inch rack-mounted), from where each modular connection can be used as needed. Each outlet is then patched into a network switch (normally also rack-mounted) for network use or into an IP or PBX (private branch exchange) telephone system patch panel.
Structured cabling is building or campus telecommunications cabling infrastructure that consists of a number of standardized smaller elements (hence structured) called subsystems.
