Hospital in New Mexico Upgrades Cabling System with ICC

ICC Success Stories

ICC 24 Port Blank Patch Panel with CAT6 RJ-45 keystone jacks

NM – A memorial hospital outside Deming, New Mexico, hired an ICC Elite Installer to upgrade their structured cabling system. After evaluating how to improve the bandwidth for their data security applications, the installer recommended adding 144 Category 6 data drops. Due to limited space in the telecommunications room, the Elite Installer recommended installing a wall mount rack. The installer used six 24-port blank patch panels in 1 rack mount space and configured them with CAT6 keystone modules. These patch panels gave the installation more flexibility because the modules can be easily removed and interchanged whenever needed. The installer then ran CAT6e Premise Cable with 23AWG UTP solid wires from the telecom room to the work areas. Available in spools of 1000 feet with REELEX™ coiling technology, the installer was able to conveniently pull, track, and measure the cable with ease due to its REELEX™ pull box dispensing carton and easy-to-read sequential markings on the outer jacket. In the work area, faceplates were configured with CAT6 RJ-45 keystone jacks. ICC Premise Cables, keystone jacks, and patch panels are fine-tuned to work together. The installer was able to gain superior signal quality and noise reduction due to enhanced Near End and Far End crosstalk cancellation.
