VT – An ICC Elite Installer was awarded a data cabling contract for a school district located in Winooski, VT. The project was to upgrade an existing structured cabling system with Category 6 (CAT 6).
The project required an installation of around 4500 CAT 6 drops, where the Elite Installer pulled 300,000 feet of 500 MHz CAT 6 bulk cable with 23 AWG UTP solid wires and a CMR jacket. The horizontal cross-connect consisted of 48-port high density (HD) blank patch panels configured with HD RJ45 CAT 6 keystone connectors in black. Station ID faceplates, telephone stainless steel faceplates, and surface mount boxes in one and two ports were installed at the outlets. They were configured with HD RJ45 CAT 6 keystone connectors in blue and blank inserts to fill unused ports.
After the installation, the system’s permanent link was tested and passed the TIA® spec.
