Generic Cabling Solution- Smart City Needs Smart Choice


In June 2018, 3GPP plenary session approved the freezing of the standalone networking function of the fifth generation mobile communication technology standard ( 5G NR ). This freeze has opened up a new end-to-end architecture of 5G, announcing the arrival of the era of full connectivity.

By 2020, the scale of the global Internet of Things industry will reach US $ 1.2 trillion, nearly 70 % more than that in 2015. As a true upgrade of 4G network, 5G is bound to set off a new wave of mobile communication construction. The essence of mankind's pursuit of " Internet of Everything" is to constantly seek ways to make the city we live in more comfortable and smarter. And "Smart City" is the concept put forward on this basis. However, it is not easy to " activate" the traditional buildings built of concrete. This involves the construction of systems such as communications automation, office automation, security automation, fire control automation, information management and pipeline engineering. The generic cabling transmits the voice, data, image and control signals needed in these systems with a unified transmission medium. On the whole, smart city is composed of all kinds of small cabling systems unit, and the functions of information transmission and control of the generic cabling system will be the key to the establishment of the whole smart city. Therefore, the construction tide of 5G in full swing will also greatly increase the demand for LAN cables, especially in areas requiring generic cabling applications.
Signal delay or loss caused by transmission instability of any kind will affect the whole building system and bring losses to people; In addition, the explosive growth of network demand also brings a great test to the expansion and upgrade of the generic cabling system. When the traditional generic cabling is used to cope with capacity expansion, the system performance is often deteriorated or the cost of cabling is increased due to excessive line changes, while the modular generic cabling is free from this problem.
Therefore, stable cabling system and modular design are the keys to generic cabling.

Stable generic cabling system
In the generic cabling system, high-quality cabling products, especially cables and accessories, are very important to the stability and reliability of the system. The quality of such products mainly depends on whether the selection of raw materials, process technical standards and the level of process management control meet the standards. The substandard low-end products will cause many engineering and technical problems in construction and transmission performance, thus causing problems such as instability of transmission signals, and transmission rate and service life of the system fail to meet the use standard, which will finally affect the operating requirements of end users.
Highly modular
Cable fittings from different manufacturers are often used in traditional cabling system when wiring voice, video or data lines inside the building. For example, the video system of the building adopts coaxial cable, while the computer system adopts twisted-pair cable. These different lines use different accessory materials and are incompatible with each other. Once the location of the terminal is changed, the cables must be relaid and new accessory materials must be installed. This kind of "independent" cabling system greatly increases users' capital investment, time cost and manpower cost.

The FiberHome communication generic cabling system always acts from the end user's perspective to fully guarantee the product security, convenience and service life. One of the most important design ideas is that the whole system and accessories such as modules and patch panels are highly modular, using the same transmission media and accessories to highly integrate different signal into one standard system. When users are faced with demands such as equipment changes, they do not need to change or re-lay the cables, but only need to add the equipment and necessary cables in the corresponding places, which greatly reduces the capital investment, time cost and manpower cost, and improves the continuity, security and convenience of users during use. At the same time, high-quality standards are adopted in the selection of raw materials and the manufacturing process, ensuring that the indexes such as attenuation, near-end crosstalk and return loss are far superior to international standards, thus ensuring the signal anti-interference capability and transmission rate of the system during use. This makes the FiberHome generic cabling system able to meet the intelligent needs of all kinds of users around the world.
