WI – An Elite Installer located in Menomonie, WI, won a project to install an ICC structured cabling system into a newly constructed building. The system was required to support network equipment and devices with high-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet performance. The installer elected to choose Category 6A (CAT6A) and fiber optic cables and connectivity.
The installer pulled 75,000 feet of CAT6A cable from the telecommunications room to the workstations. J-Hooks were installed along the walls and ceilings to help route the cables to their designated locations. Most of the outlets in the work areas consisted of 2-port faceplates configured with CAT6A keystone jacks.
In the telecommunications room, the installer mounted 48-port CAT6A patch panels along with cable management panels onto several 7-foot distribution racks. A high-density style fiber optic enclosure, capable of supporting up to 96 LC or 48 SC fiber optic connections, was also installed on the racks.
A fiber optic enclosure configured with 24 SC fibers was installed onto a wall in a separate location. This provided a distribution point for feeding fiber optic cables to other zones.
Most importantly, since the installer’s purchase of ICC products exceeded $10,000, they qualified to receive 2% of their cost back in rewards.
