Network Cabling Component

Patch Panel: This is the panel where all the cables in the radio are located in the telecommunications room. Typically, they are mounted on a telecommunications rack for wall or floor installation. Typically, the patch panel has 24, 48 or 72 ports. There are different styles, such as angles or straight lines. The panel also has the option of attaching pin 110 to the back of the panel, or you can complete the socket and place them in the empty panel.

Data Socket: This is the connector for each cable (kabelstrumpa) that ends on the side of the workstation. Connectors are suitable for appearance, usually ranging from 1 to 8 ports. Data connectors can be terminated with 568A or 568B pinouts. Please confirm the correct pin assignment with the customer or designer.

RJ 45 connector: The RJ-45 connector is mounted at the end of the network cable. These are 8-pin connectors. The most common location to find the RJ 45 is the cable that terminates at the wireless access point. The RJ 45 is a male connector for connecting to a WAP port.

Wireless access point: A device that transmits wireless network access. They are usually mounted on ceilings or walls. A wireless survey must be performed to optimize the correct location of the WAP. Contrary to popular belief, STILL wireless devices must be powered by a network cable.

Cable holder: (commonly referred to as J-Hooks) The cable carrier is mounted on the roof as a support structure for the cable assembly. The cable support of the main track must be installed on the roof of the concrete platform in the space. Hanging hooks are no longer permitted in the form of ceiling supports, electrical plumbing or piping or any other infrastructure of the system.

Cable Manager: The Cable Manager is installed between the patch panel and the switch to manage the connection cable. They have a very important goal because they provide policing in the telecommunications room. Nothing bothers me more than completing a beautiful new device and inviting the computer group to not use the cable manager. It undermines the aesthetics of work. In addition, it creates a negative precedent from the birth of the telecommunications room that others will follow.

Firewall Sleeves: Firewall Sleeves are an important part of any network cabling installation today. No more time just to make holes in the plasterboard and pass the wires. The firewall cache must be installed when you penetrate the firewall in your job. There are products specially designed for this purpose. EZ Path and Hilti are excellent versions of different sizes. When sealing all openings with a flame retardant sealant or flame retardant silicone, you can also mount the EMT sleeve through the wall. It saves lives and minimizes damage in the event of a fire.

Cable label: All cables (kabelstrumpa) and endpoints must have a unique label. This greatly facilitates installation, maintenance and troubleshooting. For professionals, all tags must be computer generated. Handwritten labels today are unacceptable.

Network cabling installation

The network cabling installation plan must be designed by a certified BICSI Certified Communication Distribution Designer (RCDD). Some things should be considered.

Type of cabling solution to be implemented: The cabling vendor or customer must choose a solution provider. Simon, Leviton, Ortronics and Panduit are the most common choices. Need to discuss the type of cabling solution. Available copper types are Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 6A or Cat 7. The style of the rack, data jack, exterior wall, patch panel and cable manager should also be discussed. And choose. Be sure to complete as early as possible, as some manufacturers and styles may take a long lead time.

Location of network equipment and racks: The rooms in which they are located are often referred to as MDF data rooms, telecommunications rooms, and telecommunications rooms.
