MA – An ICC Certified Elite Installer was awarded a data cabling contract to install a Category 6 (CAT 6) structured cabling system into a charter public school.
The project required an installation of around 250 data drops, where the installer pulled 40,000 feet of 500Mhz CAT 6 bulk cable with 23 AWG UTP solid wires and a CMP jacket. 2-inch J-Hooks with a 50 lb. static load capacity were used to route the cable along walls. Eleven 24-Port blank patch panels in 1 RMS were configured with CAT 6 high-density (HD) keystone connectors at the cross-connect. Around 300 one-foot CAT 6 patch cords in black, green, and white with clear boots interconnected the patch panels to network equipment. The Certified Elite Installer installed 75 Classic 2-Port faceplates and 1-Port and 2-Port surface mount boxes at the outlets. The outlets were configured with CAT 6 HD connectors.
After the installation, the system’s permanent link was tested and passed the TIA® spec.
