Where to use Zone Cabling

Zone cabling is ideal for supporting convergence of data and voice networks, wireless (WiFi) device uplink connections, and a wide range of sensors, control panels, and detectors for lighting, security, and other building communications. A zone cabling design consists of horizontal cables run from the floor distributor in the telecommunications room (TR) to an intermediate connection point that is typically housed in a zone enclosure located in the ceiling space, on the wall, or below an access floor. The name of this intermediate connection point depends on the types of end-point device connections it serves, and on the applicable regional structured cabling standard (see Table 1). For convenience, this article refers to the intermediate connection location as the service concentration point (SCP). The outlet supporting a building device connection is referred to as the service outlet (SO).
