Cabling Installation 

  1. All cables shall be pulled continuous without splice between patch panels and outlets.
  2. Cables shall be run in conduit down to the wall outlets. Plastic or metal surface mounted raceways must be used where the raceway is shown exposed. Support hooks must be used above accessible ceilings for cable without raceway. All cable shall be properly supported. Contractor must provide all materials including raceways.
  3. Cable shall be pulled and properly terminated by a California C-7 or C-10 licensed contractor with experience with telecommunication cabling.
  4. Conductors and cables shall be neatly fanned, laced, terminated and labeled at all backboards and cabinets.
  5. Device plates shall be of material and color as room decor.
  6. For each data jack installed, provide 1’ Yellow Cat 6A patch cords to connect from the patch panel to the switch.
  7. Document all network port according to the District’s network standard
    1. Provide a final as-built drawing of the TR and each jack number ex. 1.1-001

Ceiling Data Jacks

  1. A 40’ service loop should be provided for all ceiling drops and should be neatly tie wrapped and coiled and properly supported by J-hooks.
  2. Ceiling drops shall be terminated into the appropriate Cat 6A Mini-Com jack placed within a surface mount biscuit with 2 ports. The surface mount biscuit shall be securely mounted above the dropped ceiling according to building code and supported by the ceiling structure above.
  3. If there is no dropped ceiling, then raceway and conduit should not be installed onto the surface of the exposed ceiling. If cabling is brought up to the ceiling from the floor then raceway shall be used and then a 2 port Mini-Com surface mount box shall be installed on the wall, one inch below the ceiling tile. If installed in a location with very high ceilings, the surface mount box may be installed mid-wall if approved by ITS Management.
  4. All cabling must be installed to comply with all building code and industry best practices including BICSI, ANSI/TIA and IEEE.

Performance Test of System

  1. Provide all instruments for testing and demonstrating in the presence of the Owner's inspector that all circuits and wiring are free of shorts and grounds and that cabling has been properly installed without damage to the cable and properly terminated.
  2. Provide Cat 6A/fiber optic performance reports upon completion
