When it comes to cabling, more cable means more data, and more is always better for businesses today. Cabling infrastructure, such as runways and ladder trays, are being pushed to their limits with the continual evolution of bigger, better cables. What some might not recognize is that the cables or the connective components themselves might not be the weak link in a design. Emerging trends and the latest Category cable steal the spotlights at trade shows and events, but there is a less often mentioned, yet highly important piece to the datacommunication puzzle - the cabling infrastructure.
While there are many continuous pathway alternatives on the market, including J-Hooks, bridle rings, cable pulleys, and even under floor systems, no solution properly supports code compliance at a cost-effective level in the same way as cable trays and runways. Because of standards like TIA 568-C, the standard which determines a copper cable's bend radius, components that aid in these sorts of design requirements make installation and management to adherence a much simpler task. 568 for example, sets a bend radius of 4 times the diameter of a twisted pair cable. With new runways and accessories that are built to exceed current requirements, and designs that anticipate future workflows, Belden's new runways and accessories are a great example of what what cabling infrastructure in the datacommunications industry should aim to be.
