Select a Channel Model

The purpose of this design tool is to help customers design horizontal channels for different LAN environments and configurations. The channel model to be installed is based upon a number of factors including cost (short term and long term), flexibility and performance.

When designing a cabling infrastructure, a single factor (i.e. - initial cost) is often the deciding characteristic of the channel selected. However, once all elements are considered, a design with higher initial cost may have a lower overall cost of ownership to a company that does a lot of Move, Add or Change (MAC) activity. The most important concern is that designers are familiar with all aspects of the different configurations available to make the best selection possible.
