MI – An ICC Elite Installer in Michigan was awarded a data cabling contract from a medical-surgical center. The project required a Category 6 (CAT 6) structured cabling system.
The project required an installation of around 750 CAT 6 drops, where the Elite Installer pulled 50,000 feet of 500 MHz CAT 6 bulk cable with 23 AWG UTP solid wires and a CMP jacket. The horizontal cross-connect consisted of 24-port and 48-port high density (HD) blank patch panels configured with HD RJ45 CAT 6 keystone connectors. CAT 6 patch cords in one, five, and ten-foot lengths with clear boots interconnected the patch panels to network equipment. Stainless steel faceplates were installed at the outlets and configured with RJ45 CAT 6 keystone connectors in EZ style.
In the equipment room, the cabling was supported by sixty feet of ladder rack cable runway. Three types of J-Hooks were used to route cables along walls and overhead; wall mount, ceiling mount, and batwing.
After the installation, the system’s permanent link was tested and passed the TIA® spec.
