- MAC’s are much quicker
- Potential for downtime is reduced
- Time savings:
…due to the fact that they are done in the MDA versus running long patch cords from equipment racks.
…as potential for human error is drastically reduced due to this organization.
Cable and port tracing becomes a much easier job with a structured cabling system.
Never underestimate the looks! A structured cabling system will look much cleaner than a point to point method. Since the changes are done in the MDA versus at the hardware, the hardware can be cabled up and not touched in most instances. This allows the cabling in front of the switch to remain aesthetically pleasing.
