The ANSI/TIA-568-C.1 standard breaks structured cabling into six areas:
- Horizontal cabling
- Backbone cabling
- Work area
- Telecommunications rooms and enclosures
- Equipment rooms
- Entrance facility (building entrance)
PTS IT and RCDD consultants perform site surveys and assessments to understand existing infrastructure as well as fully understand client requirements. Working with client or PTS architects and engineers, RCDD consultants develop network design plans based upon the ANSI/TIA-568-C standard. They can then create, update and maintain CAD files of client facilities and the associated physical layer network topology. Properly maintained documentation of IT and network infrastructure, including moves, adds and changes allows clients to more effectively troubleshoot and easily manage their daily customer requests in an already busy work environment.
