GA – An ICC Elite Installer was awarded a Category 6 (CAT 6) cabling contract from a state law enforcement agency in Suwanee, Georgia. Their building required a structured cabling system consisting of 126 CAT 6 drops.
The installer pulled 8,000 and 2,000 feet of ICC CAT 6 and CAT 6e CMP plenum cable, respectively, from the work areas to the telecommunications room. J-Hooks were used to route cables along the walls and ceilings. They installed faceplates and surface mount boxes with CAT 6 keystone jacks at the outlets.
Two seven-feet cable management racks were floor-mounted in the telecom room. The installer chose to install blank patch panels with CAT 6 keystone jacks at the horizontal cross-connect. A ladder rack runway was used to route cables overhead. A 100-pair 110 wiring block was installed to support Category 5e data and voice applications.
After the installation, the CAT 6 cabling system was tested to the TIA® Permanent Link spec and registered with ICC’s 15-Year Performance Warranty.
