OR – An ICC Elite Installer was awarded an 1800 data drop contract from a full-service petroleum product and service provider. The installer installed an ICC Category 6 (CAT 6) structured cabling system with 10G fiber optic connectivity into their new building.
A variety of patch panels were used, such as CAT 6 110-Type and blank in 12, 24 and 48 ports. The installer chose EZ® and high-density style blank patch panels and configured them with CAT 6 keystone connectors. They also chose CAT 6 patch cords with clear boots to connect to network equipment.
The installer pulled twenty thousand feet of 600MHz CAT 6e bulk cable with 23 AWG UTP solid wires and a CMR riser jacket.
The fiber optic connectivity included 12-Fiber LC fiber optic adapter panels with aqua multimode adapters. The panels could fit into LGX compatible enclosures and 10G LC patch cords with OM3 multimode optical cable were used to connect the adapter panels to network equipment.
Lastly, after the installation, the installer tested the system’s permanent link to the TIA® spec.
