I am not sure which term, cables or cabling (or other), would be more appropriate for the following context:
A new set of connectors, compatible with the metric ________, would eventually be installed.
My usual research method hasn't been fruitful because the search results are swamped with discussion of which cables are right for specific applications. Some searches for the definition of cabling even forward me to the definition of cable.
When should cable(s) vs. cabling be used, or are they always interchangeable?
