Physical Infrastructure

The physical infrastructure is all of the network media in your office, hotels, buildings and server room/data center. This all too often neglected part of your infrastructure usually is the weakest link and is the cause of most system outages when not managed properly. There are two main types of media used in the infrastructure:

CAT 5/6/7
Fiber optic
Each type of media has several different subtypes, depending on the speed and distance required to connect devices.
