This article is designed to present and illustrate the need for the requirement of the technical specifications around the development of applicable international standards for structured cabling. One of the main objectives is encouraging the market to promote professionalism in the area of telecommunications framed within the real trends of the structured cabling from a technical point of view. This design uses the structured cabling methodology, not only because it is an organized and appropriate method to interconnect multiple and different data processing equipment, but also to comply with standards and regulations. Among its benefits are the ability to integrate both voice, data and video services, at the same time that gives the advantage of accepting new technologies, support multiple computing environments at a lower cost, something that most enterprises are looking for nowadays. The Standards of structured cabling topologies specified generic installation and design that are characterized by a "category" or "class" of performance transmission as a function of the bandwidth. When you specify a structured cabling in accordance with the standards you gain many advantages, these include the guarantee of application operations, more flexibility of cabling choices, and connectivity that may otherwise be incompatible, now will be compatible with previous categories, and a design and structured wiring topology universally recognized by professionals and entities responsible for management of these standards. Key Terms - Contingency Planning, Information Assurance, International Standards, Structured Cabling.
