Smart Technology is enhancing our quality of life in many more ways than one. Advent of intuitive and helpful technological solutions keeps us exited continuously. Home-amenities are being fitted with internet-based communication-technology, which has brought in automation and a centralized control of their functions. Thus, Broadband has become more and more important for Smart Homes, the new-age connected houses. While fiber-optic cables have become the prevalent medium to provide Broadband, most of our home-devices are still having electrical interfaces. Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) technology is being deployed frequently, but at the same time, innovations in copper-system and technologies are also being created to augment their data-transmission speed. For its cost-effectiveness and easier manageability, copper-based cabling and network is still being deployed in Smart Homes. So, equipping homes with a hybrid of networking solutions and preciseblending of conventional copper wiring and fiber-optic cabling is the trend. But, the increasing number of connected devices, like TVs, gaming consoles, laptops, tablets, smartphones, ACs and smartwatches, take a toll on network and consume bandwidth, creating hindrances for the functionality and reliability of Smart Homes. Structured Wiring is the answer to the problem. These connected homes exemplify a unified environment of a whole lot of devices and amenities. Structured wiring provides signals for all the data and power-applications within these homes from a centralized point. A common structured wiring plan consists of co-axial cables, several fiber-optic cables and lots of Ethernet cables like Cat5e, Cat6, Cat 6a etc. In Smart Homes, we’re going to see a lot of grouping and re-grouping of existing devices. Networks are going to receive and distribute an unimaginable data-load on their physical infrastructure, which is why a strategically designed wiring plan is a must in these houses. Structured wiring can be done in every room and terminated with differently-needed wall plates and ports for easy plug-and-play connection to the home-network.
