ICC Specified for Hernando County\'s Largest School
(Spring Hill, Florida) Hernando County School Board specified ICCâ€™s high performance Category 6 structured cabling solution in a new 2,100-student school. The new school, Explorer K-8, is located in Spring Hill, Florida, and recently opened its doors this August for kindergarten-through-8th-graders. We asked the IT Director for the Hernando County School Board why they specified ICCâ€™s structured cabling products and he indicated, â€œICC is our standard in our construction specificationsâ€.
With $54.8 million in construction costs to complete the two story 280,000 sq. ft. building, APG Electrical, installed 1,800 drops incorporating ICCâ€™s RJ-45 CAT 6 data modular connectors, CAT 6 patch panels, distribution racks, cable management, and more as the structured cabling system. Each of the 99 classrooms is equipped with overhead speakers, video cameras, and projection screen systems. The classrooms have four desktop computers and one laptop; 30 additional laptops for every 300 students are also readily accessible. The new school accommodates a media center, science and computer laboratories, sports fields, gymnasium, administration offices, and more.
APGâ€™s Voice/Data/Video Manager said, â€œDuring the installation our technicians were very pleased with ICCâ€™s structured cabling products. ICCâ€™s distribution racks, cable management, and patch panels looked great and the installation went smoothâ€.
One of the big reasons why educational institutions, K-12, colleges and universities, prefer ICC is because ICCâ€™s structured cabling products have been relentlessly tested and have repeatedly yield test results exceeding TIA/EIA performance standards. Most of all, they are satisfied getting premium quality and reliable structured cabling systems at affordable prices.
