Although predominantly used in a business environment, the flexibility of structured cabling is also becoming more appropriate within a domestic environment, as more and more home based devices are internet accessible. The reliability of a wired connection is a strong selling point over Wi-Fi, with most devices allowing either a wired or wireless connection to broadband.
With a well-designed network, phone wiring within a property is not required, as it can just be patched to any point on the network. This reduces the possibility of both broadband and phone line faults due to the simplicity, as well as making fault finding easier for engineers.
Another benefit of a structured wiring network is the ability use it to add additional WiFi access points/hotspots to any area of a property that cannot be normally reach by a typical broadband router.
