A unified school district, located in Los Angeles, California, hired an ICC Elite Installer to modernize one of their high school’s network cabling system. The high school is recognized as a California Distinguished School with a diverse student body and a National Blue Ribbon School that is committed to academic excellence and outstanding college preparation for its students. The school’s goal was to prepare for the 21st century and be ready for current and future emerging technologies. To help pursue this goal, the school district awarded the Elite Installer the installation of a state-of-the-art network that went into the multiple buildings with science classrooms.
The science classrooms were provided with an ICC structured cabling system; including Category 6A (CAT 6A) copper cables, modular jacks, patch panels, A/V solutions, racks and cable managers, fiber optic enclosures, and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) multimode fiber optic (MMF) LC/SC duplex fiber adapter panels and fiber optic jumpers. The school now uses a high-performance fiber optic backbone connecting from the multiple intermediate distribution frames (IDFs) to the main distribution frame (MDF).
The Category 6 copper cabling now allows the network to provide the high-performance bandwidth required for Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) applications. All Category 6 permanent link connections, a total of over 370 drops, were tested and exceeded the ANSI/TIA standards. Also, every CAT 6 connection was verified for ICC’s Lifetime Cabling System Performance Warranty from end-to-end.
The installer chose ICC because they were able to reduce costs and still provide a high performance structured cabling system. Their staff has been involved in the communication industry for more than 30 years performing work for various private businesses and Government entities.
