(Spring Hill, Florida)
Hernando County School Board specified ICC’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 ICC’s structured cabling products and he indicated, ICC is our standard in our construction specifications.
With $54.8 million in construction costs to complete the two-story 280,000 sq. ft. building, APG Electrical, installed 1,800 drops incorporating ICC’s RJ-45 CAT6 data modular connectors, CAT6 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.
APG’s Voice/Data/Video Manager said, During the installation, our technicians were very pleased with ICC’s structured cabling products. ICC’s distribution racks, cable management, and patch panels looked great and the installation went smooth.
One of the big reasons why educational institutions, K-12, colleges, and universities, prefer ICC is because ICC’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.
