So… Are structured cabling systems going to be obsolete? Is it worth investing in voice and data cabling? What is the relationship between structured cabling and IP business phone systems going to be?
The Truth About Voice and Data Cabling
As you might imagine, IP business phone systems do not suddenly eliminate the need for voice and data cabling. Even cloud hosting requires employees to be connected. And while this connection may be either mobile (WiFi) or wired (Ethernet), the main system requires at least a minimal amount of structured cabling.
Wired vs Wireless Connections
Whether or not your employees require a wired connection, however, depends largely upon your industry. While it is universally agreed these days that wireless phone systems surpass wired when it comes to convenience, wired systems still outrank them when it comes to reliability.
In addition to reliability, other areas that wired connections still dominate is security, privacy, and speed, which are still essential to most large enterprise corporations.
