FSC101: Fundamentals of Structured Cabling Systems


In this course, you will have a chance to follow along as an ICT design firm attempts to meet the telecommunications requirements of three demanding clients:

  • College that wants to improve its infrastructure in the hopes of attracting more students
  • Traditional multinational corporation that is building a new facility to serve as one of its regional headquarters
  • Video game production studio investing in a state-of-the-art open-format campus

In this course, you will learn how a structured cabling system and its subsystems can be used to meet a customer’s telecommunications requirements. It defines what an SCS is and how its components work together to provide predictable performance while supporting moves, adds, and changes (MACs) and future growth.

This is the first course in the ICT Fundamentals Series. BICSI recommends that students complete this course, along with the other courses in the series, before they take the ICT Fundamentals exam.
