FL – A multinational hospitality company wanted to dramatically improve network services for hotel guests. They hired an ICC Certified Elite Installer (CEI) to install two structured cabling systems, Category 6 (CAT6) and fiber optic. The project required two CAT6 Ethernet ports in every guestroom to allow devices to be plugged in and accessible to Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth. A Passive Optical LAN was recommended to provide a good cabling foundation that supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet bandwidth.
An open frame wall mount rack was used as the main cross-connect. The rack was equipped with CAT6 patch panels and LGX compatible fiber optic enclosures loaded with LC to SC adapter panels. The switches, servers, and network equipment were interconnected using CAT6 and LC to SC fiber optic patch cords. A total of 30,000 feet of CAT6 cable was pulled throughout the project. J-Hooks were mounted to the walls and ceilings to help route cables to their designated areas. A majority of the rooms were set up with 2-Port white faceplates configured with CAT6 keystone jacks. A total of 250 CAT6 drops were installed.
