Structured cabling infrastructure guidelines

The aim of this document is to provide sufficient information for the successful delivery of a Structured Cabling Solution which has high reliability, is easy to maintain and can support the applications and services of today and the future.

It is hoped the following information will prove useful to architects, electrical/data consultants, main contractors, suppliers, installers, or anyone responsible for the design, specification, planning or installation of Structured Cabling infrastructure.

This information is an overview and is not intended to provide an in-depth consideration of cabling or working practices.

The guidelines are provided as a downloadable PDF. You will need Adobe Reader to access them.

Whilst every care has been taken to ensure that the following information is correct we submit the following as an advisory guide only. For clarification, the relevant standard, specification, manufacturer’s instructions or code of practice must be consulted at all times.

University of Edinburgh Information Services policy is one of continuous development and improvement. This information will be re-issued when the upgrading of products, specifications or installation techniques requires it. Please check that you have the most up-to-date version of this document.
