Need for Easy IT Infrastructure Management Is Driving the Advanced Structured Cabling Market

Microsoft | May 28, 2020

  • IT sector grows, especially in developing countries, so will the requirement for advanced structured cabling, P&S Intelligence is a provider of market research and consulting services.

  • Around the world, Asia-Pacific (APAC) has been the largest structured cabling market, owing to its rapidly growing IT industry.

  • The rise in the adoption of intelligent technologies to implement scalable and modular IT infrastructure in several business operations is driving the market.


The entire structured cabling system can be made of copper wires or fiber wires and associated components. In the past, copper wires made up much of the structured cabling, as they are cost-effective. However, these cables are unable to support higher bandwidths, the demand for which is rising with people's requirement shifting to high-volume data transfer at higher speeds. This is why, in years to come, the demand for fiber cables would increase rapidly. Around the world, the usage of internet gaming, video conferencing and chatting, online video watching, and file sharing is rising, which requires high data speed to work without packet loss or buffering.


Further, the wires are themselves categorized as category 6, category 5e, category 6A, and category 7, based on the applications they support and data speeds they can handle. Up till 2017, category 6 wires were most widely installed, since they support the older computer systems. Additionally, they are used heavily in conjunction with category 5 wires (in systems that still use the latter category wires) to increase the connection speed. In present times, the demand for high-speed internet is rising, which would push the integration of category 6A structured cables. Around the world, Asia-Pacific (APAC) has been the largest structured cabling market, owing to its rapidly growing IT industry, as a result of heavy public and private investments.

“The major advantage of the installation of these cables is the large amounts of information that can be transmitted per unit of time, driving the structured cabling market demand."


Providing the plinth of market intelligence, P&S as an enterprising research and consulting company, believes in providing thorough landscape analyses on the ever-changing market scenario, to empower companies to make informed decisions and base their business strategies with astuteness. Several legacy facilities are facing the challenge of managing the order and ease of accessing the cabling infrastructure. The widely used cable management products and solutions can be installed easily and offer simple and modular designs. The manufacturers in the structured cabling market are catering to such demands of the customers by offering advanced cable management solutions. The growing adoption of digital services and increasing number of internet users will augment the data center demand, thereby driving the structured cabling market growth.


The cabling systems offer faster data transfer speeds and effective connectivity of IT devices, reducing the chances of system downtime and failure. It improves the effectiveness in the decision-making process, maximizing the business profits. Moreover, the growing demand for high-speed connectivity of the devices and data center convergence are the major factors driving the market. The adoption of fiber optic and coaxial cables for high-speed internet connectivity is gaining momentum in the industry. These cables have a much greater bandwidth compared to the metal cables. The major advantage of the installation of these cables is the large amounts of information that can be transmitted per unit of time, driving the structured cabling market demand.

'AWS for Web3' Pocket Network Shakes Up Infrastructure of the Internet

Pocket Network | January 17, 2022

Pocket Network an infrastructure middleware protocol which facilitates decentralized cloud computing and abundant bandwidth on full nodes interoperable with DApps across all 21+ blockchains, doubles down on its market-based approach to infrastructure by incentivizing a global community of independent node operators and service providers running 21,000+ nodes adding to the network's resilience. Pocket Network is secured by over $320M worth of network infrastructure distributed globally across 23 countries and reduces the risk of service downtime to near zero for any layer 1 or industry DApps as work is distributed evenly across thousands of full nodes, which also protects end users' privacy. Pocket Network, who last week closed a strategic round led by Republic Capital, RockTree Capital, Arrington Capital, is undergoing exponential growth as demand for its network measured in API calls or relays jumped to 5.78 Billion relays in December, up 44% From November 2021. "Pocket is the First Mover, changing the game as core infrastructure for the Web3 revolution" said Omer Ozden, CEO of RockTree Capital "For those that are seeking the next high growth first mover like AWS or Ethereum, you can see transparently on-chain the parabolic growth of actual usage and of actual revenues of the Pocket Network. The metrics have been super impressive and we look forward to the scaling 2022 will bring." Pocket Network has generated $56m revenue in December up from $29m in November and currently supports over 2000+ DApps run across its network which is integrated with Solana along with Ethereum, Polygon, Avalanche, Binance, Harmony, Gnosis (formerly xDai), Fuse and many more. "There is increased investment in public, open-source infrastructure through crypto networks that continues to chip away at the dominance of today's providers, reducing them to commodities,Our attractive economic flywheel model for our network is simple and naturally drives growth - attractive node running incentives adds more nodes which in turn creates more redundancy and better DApp service experience, more DApp usage then generates more node revenue." Michael O'Rourke, CEO at Pocket Network Pocket meaningfully encourages and incentivizes niche cloud providers which commercially have been less viable over the last decade with massively well known incumbents dominating the traditional market, and aims to provide Web3 with a much more compatible infrastructure network. About Pocket Network Pocket Network, a blockchain data ecosystem for Web3 applications, is a platform built for applications that uses cost-efficient economics to coordinate and distribute data at scale. It enables seamless and secure interactions between blockchains and across applications. With Pocket, the use of blockchains can be simply integrated into web..sites, mobile apps, IoT and more, giving developers the freedom to put blockchain enabled applications into the "pocket" of every mainstream consumer.
