Cabling serves as the foundation for IT infrastructure. And due to the explosion of connected devices and an increasing need for bandwidth, cabling continues to be one of the fastest-growing work categories on Field Nation.
In a recent poll conducted by Field Nation, an overwhelming 95% of respondents recognized the growth potential in this category, reporting a strong demand for projects such as:
- Retail equipment installations, including cash wraps and point-of-sale systems, plus cabling
- Network and wireless equipment installations plus cabling
- Copper or fiber structured cabling for retail stores, large warehouses, and distribution centers
The downside to this growing demand is that there’s too much work and not enough workers. In another poll conducted by Field Nation, respondents identified the ongoing talent shortage as the top issue inhibiting their growth.
