Welcome to the information age,
Where your television is digital, your music follows you from room to room and the lights are cued as soon as you pull into the driveway. If you’re considering home networking, HDTV, or any other digital products and services you need to tune into the new buzz and have your home outfitted with structured wiring.

The bundles of cable may look like overkill but what it represents is bandwidth. Before you know it, you’ll be able to connect your laptop to your stove top. But in order to take part in these innovations you’ll need to start thinking about the structured wire now.

In the good old days of the 1990s‚ most signals coming into your home were in the form of analog waves. Today most signals are currently sent in a digital form or will be shortly. Digital transmission is the same language that a computer uses to talk to a printer. Given that all electronics are becoming little computers‚ all of these pieces of equipment are beginning to talk digitally to each other. Once the digital language becomes standard‚ then the discussion will quickly turn to speed and that is where structured wiring comes in handy.

Specifically‚ a structured wire "bundle" consists of two RG6–Quad shield coaxial cables‚ two multi–mode fiber optic lines and two Cat5‚ 5E or 5+ communication cables. The coaxial cable is the wire that connects our VCR to the TV and can carry a variety of digital signals. HDTV and cable modems currently use this wire in your home.

Why two of these to each location? Short answer... Be Prepared! Long Answer‚ to allow information to flow both in and out of your home‚ for additional information–carrying capacity if needed. The fiber optic lines are actually the coolest "wires" in the bundle. They provide ultra–wide bandwidth (meaning lots of digital stuff can move very quickly) and are more reliable than copper. You don’t see a lot of consumer electronics communicating via fiber optic‚ but as fiber optic prices go down‚ their popularity will increase.

Cinergy: Structured Wire Rough-in

Structured Wire: Pre-wire phase

Structured wiring radiates from a central hub in a star pattern through your home’s walls so that each outlet or jack has its own run of cable.


If you are building or renovating‚ wire your home for the future while the walls are open.

Remember: wires are cheap but pulling wires through a finished house is expensive. With that as a motto‚ have Cinergy run wires to many locations‚ even if you're not ready to use them all yet. Better yet‚ have us install a metal conduit through which future cables can be snaked without ripping down walls. The half–life of modern technology is shrinking‚ so the best you can do is think ahead.
