ICC Certified Elite Installer Installs CAT5e Cabling System

ICC Success Stories

FL – An ICC Elite Installer located in Jacksonville, Florida was hired to install a Category 5e (CAT5e) structured cabling system. The project site was a multi-story building. Multiple telecom rooms were available on each level to provide connectivity to different offices. Wall mount racks were installed into the rooms and mounted with CAT5e 24-Port patch panels. The installer decided to install plenum-rated cable because it produces less smoke than traditional PVC cable. In case of a fire, the plenum-rated jacket must self-extinguish and not reignite. 30,000 feet of CAT5e cable was pulled. In the work areas, most workstations were equipped with a 1-Port single-gang faceplate configured with a CAT5e modular keystone connector. In other non-office areas, like a warehouse, 12-Port patch panels were used to act as outlets. Before the installation, the installer offered their customer ICC’s 15-year performance warranty. Once the project was done, they tested and registered the system per TIA’s Permanent Link specification with ICC. ICC then issued a proof-of-warranty certificate back to the installer with a day.
