Application examples

Application Example: Intelligent Buildings

Application Example: Intelligent Buildings

The most obvious and typical application for a Zone Cabling network design would be for an intelligent or connected building.

By Intelligent we are simply referring to a building that utilises a building management system to monitor and control multiple building services such as access control, fire safety systems, HVAC, lighting, security / CCTV. We have entered an era where more and more devices require a connection to the buildings data network using an RJ45 interface.

Any building owner looking to gain greater return on investment from their network infrastructure should consider a zone cabling topology.

Application Example: Mission Critical

Application Example: Mission Critical

Mission critical areas such as escape routes or busy walk ways in building environments such as hospitals or universities can be highly sensitive to disruption caused by maintenance. A zone cabling topology in this scenario allows engineers to conduct network maintenance works in areas away from these critical paths allowing normal day to day operation. 

The diagram shows a university floor plan highlighting a dedicated escape route. The escape route in this example needs to remain open and free from any obstructions, so by implementing a zone cabling topology, any closures can be avoided. Adopting the use of Zone Cabling Termination Boxes in ceiling voids to connect rooms accessed by the escape route is an ideal solution. This allows the campus engineers to carry out any network maintenance from the Zone Termination boxes, at worst closing off one or two class rooms at a time but avoiding any disruption to the escape route.
