With the Internet of Things and the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth, a reliable and well-designed Structured Cabling System plays a key role in minimizing data bottlenecks. This will involve the consideration of several notions: future-readiness, speed of transmission, power consumption, and Layer one infrastructure.
With Cisco predicting that 53% of monthly IP traffic in 2019 will come from Wi-Fi connections worldwide, up 25% from 2014. The introduction of Wi-Fi 6 technology has become essential, not just to manage the increase throughput of a single connection (now 4 times greater), but to facilitate high speed connectivity. A key advance in the Wi-Fi standard is the use of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (ODMFA) technology, which allows simultaneous communication of 30 clients per channel thereby reducing potential congestion of the network. Ideal for high density areas with a large influx of customers, such as stadiums, theaters, train stations or airports.
The telecommunications guidelines for Wireless LAN applications is ANSI/TSB-162-A, providing guidelines on the topology, design, installation, and cable testing. Including the pathways and spaces to support the cabling and wireless access points (WAPs). Recommendations for cabling include:
We cannot discuss Wireless LANs without mentioning the latest PoE (Power over Ethernet) tech improvements. Specifying PoE for Wi-Fi installations brings many advantages;
