Structured Cabling: An Essential Utility for the 21st Century

By the early 1990s, the industry was rolling out another approach to smart homes. The technology had many names at first, but today the industry has settled on the name structured wiring. However, the standards bodies have recently given the technology the designation of structured cabling. This new cabling system was initially developed by manufacturers in the voice and data industry for commercial applications. It was subsequently reengineered and downsized for residential applications to make the technology practical, economical, and worthwhile to consumers.
