The building of a network can be an extremely complex task and should be properly planned. One crucial aspect of a network is the cabling and infrastructure where a structured cabling system should be implemented that allows for future growth.
A variety of tools and materials are required for a successful build of structured cabling. Some of these may be needed at the start of the project while some may be required during the project.
The network plan should include:
- The building and networking materials required
- Who the suppliers are and what the costs are
- The tools needed
- The project completion date
