CA – An ICC Certified Elite Installer was awarded a Category 6 (CAT 6) cabling contract from a contractor union training facility in Fontana, California. Their building required two structured cabling systems consisting of 150 CAT 6 drops.
The first system supported data communications for network equipment, televisions, and uplinks from the minimum point of entry (MPOE) to the main distribution frame (MDF). The second system supported indoor and outdoor surveillance.
A total of 32,000 feet of CAT 6e cable was pulled. The data network used plenum-rated cable and the surveillance system used riser-rated cable. Batwing Clip J-Hooks were attached to ceiling wire and routed cables overhead. Faceplates with station IDs were configured with CAT 6 keystone jacks and installed at the outlets. The horizontal cross-connect consisted of 48-port CAT 6 patch panels interconnected with CAT 6 patch cords.
After the installation, both CAT 6 cabling systems were tested to the TIA® Permanent Link spec and registered with ICC’s Lifetime Performance Warranty.
