Structural Cabling

Structural Cabling


Canovate Electronics, as an end-to-end technology solutions provider, delivers 5G technology where you need it, through our last-mile solutions and structured cabling.
 
Structured cabling, in layman’s terms, refers to the standardized (structured) small elements that, when combined, make up a building’s or campus’s telecommunications network. It includes all the fiber optic cables, fiber connectors, and protecting cabinets and devices.
 
Structured cabling:
  • provides consistent performance across the platform
  • allows for moves, additions, or other changes
  • eases the processes of installation and troubleshooting
  • follows a set of standards that all providers adhere to
  • future proofs the system
 
In a typical installation, structured cabling is used to bring fiber optic technology from the access point to a central location in the building – often called the equipment or telecom room. Here, equipment is housed and wiring consolidated. Vertical and horizontal cabling and connections, plus protection devices such as duct work, are then used to bring the optical fiber from the equipment room throughout a facility or even campus.

Fiber Patch Panels
Fiber patchpanels are bay.s of equipment that allow fiber lines to be “patched” in to a network. They are used in data centers to connect multiple racks to each other, and in home and office settings to manage and direct patch cables to ports in bedrooms, livings rooms, offices, or anywhere else a fiber connection is wanted.
 
Fiber circuits can be arranged simply by plugging and unplugging patch cords into different ports.
 
Canovate offers a range of fiber optic patch panels to provide cost-effective, professional cable management.
Patch Cords
In the general sense, patchcords – also known as patch cables – are the cords used to connect different devices in a system. The ethernet cable connecting a computer to a router or switch is a type of patch cord. Microphone cables, headphone extensions, and HDMI cables are all considered “patch cables".
 
In networking, however, patch cables almost exclusively refer to the relatively short cords used to connect to patch panels.
 
Canovate offers patch cords in a variety of colors, buffers, and jacket types, to ease cable management.
 
Fiber Optic Cables
Fiber optic cables are the data carriers in a fiber optic system. They are made of a core of thin glass or plastic fibers, surrounded by a layer of cladding. Light travels through the core, carrying information. The cladding serves both to protect the fiber, and to keep the light signals from leaking.
 
Canovate electronics provides a variety of optical fiber cables, each engineered for different applications and environments.
 
Fiber Connectors
Fiber connectors are the termination points of optical fibers. They allow for the mechanical coupling and alignment of fiber cores, so that data can be transferred without data loss. They quickly connect fiber cables to patch panels and other connection points.
 
Canovate Electronics’ supplies quick-assembly fiber connectors appropriate for use in the field for maintenance or repair, as well as a variety of connectors to efficiently connect equipment in home or office settings.
 
Fiber Adapters
Fiber adapters allow for the simple connection of two lines. Proper alignment of the incoming fibers is critical to avoid signal loss.
 
Canovate fiber optic adapters are compatible with all fiber types, including single mode (9/125 microns) and multimode (50/125 microns) fibers, and comply with both ANSI/TIA/EIA 458-B.3 and IEC 60874 standards. We offer a full range of adapters, providing user-friendly solutions in both vertical and horizontal environments.
 
Multi-fiber Termination (MTP) and Multi-fiber Push On (MPO) Fiber Connectors
Multi-fiber Termination (MTP) and Multi-fiber Push On (MPS) offer more dense connections and higher bandwidth than standard connectors. MPO fiber cables are standardized terminals for 12 or 24 rows of fiber.
 
The design of MPO and MTP fiber connectors are similar, using the same form factors and coupling types. MTP connectors are a more recent design, and are considered more robust while increasing performance and decreasing signal loss.
 
Canovate’s selection of pre-terminated MTP and MPO multicore assemblies enable rapid deployment of high-density cabling for data centers and telecom networks. This reduces installation time and cost, while easing later relocation or troubleshooting.
