NC – An ICC Elite Installer located in North Carolina won a project to install an ICC structured cabling system. The project required data, voice, and fiber optic connectivity. However, one component that made this project unique was the number of data drops that were installed in the telecommunications room. 3200 RJ-45 CAT6 jacks were terminated and installed into blank patch panels that were mounted to multiple 7-foot distribution racks.
Before the project was started, the Elite Installer decided to use ICC’s ValuePacks to save on material cost and labor.
The installer chose ICC’s CAT6 keystone jack in the 400-pack which helped reduce the cost per jack. To help reduce installation time, the installer chose the 400-pack with a JackEasy termination tool included. The tool can trim all four pairs of wires on a jack simultaneously.
To help reduce cost on cable management, the installer chose die-cast aluminum, 5-inch cable D-rings in the 100-pack. The D-rings helped route large amounts of cable along the walls.
