...My RFP for this building is I will be wiring this entire building with Cat5e cable because it’s cheaper and better to use in a building like this. I will try and get the job done as quickly as possible; it probably will take me about 3 or 4 day to wire this building. I will provide all the labor, material, tools and equipment need for this job. Me and my team will do a great job on wiring your building and have it up in running in no time. I plan to have your Telco room in the back of the building in the left corner with all the theory rooms and labs surrounding it. I will have racks and switches setup in the Telco room for the other rooms , but for labs 4 and lab 1 I will have a switches in those rooms because those tow labs have the most computers in them and that’s a lot of cable to run from every computer in those rooms back to the Telco room . So I will just put the switches in the labs mount them on the wall or a have racks setup so the stiches and cables can be place and cable be neatly organized, and have to main cables running from those rooms back to the Telco room. Then with the other two labs , LRC I will do the same thing as I did with the other labs so it want be so much cable and they have their own switch in them , with the 5 theory rooms and front desk I will have 3 cables in each room going back to the Telco room . All the cables in all rooms will be organized and in the Telco room will have the cables on racks so they are neat and if a cable...

Building a New Structure - Problem Analysis

...Activity 1: Building a New Structure – Problem Analysis Here are the most common causes of fiber network malfunctions: • Broken fibers because of physical stress or excessive bending • Insufficient transmitting power • Excessive signal loss due to a cable span that’s too long • Excessive signal loss due to a contaminated connector • Excessive signal loss due to faulty splices or connectors • Excessive signal loss due to having too many splices or connectors • Faulty connection of fiber to the patch panel or in the splice tray Typically, if a connection is completely dead, it’s because of a break in the cable. However, if the connection is intermittent, there are several possible causes: • The cable’s attenuation may be too high because of poor quality splices or too many splices. • Things like dust, fingerprints, scratches, and humidity can contaminate connectors. • There is low transmitter strength. • There are bad connections in the wiring closet. Some tools to assist in determining the issue with the network would be: Cable fault finder - fault locator, cable and wire manager and tone generator Electrical Contractor Telecom Kits - these kits contain essential industry standard telecommunications tools and test equipment. Voltage Detector - provides protection against hazardous voltages. Punchdown Tool - termination tool allows you to terminate jacks. Modular Crimper Cable Strippers Once you find the problem, you have to repair it. Besides the...

Building a Network Structure

...First in building a network we must figure out what cable will be used for our telecommunication rooms. Category 5e twisted-pair copper cable is the most common and inexpensive cabling used today. Next we will need to have the right set of tools for building or telecommunication room. Lastly we need to figure out what type of testing will be performed to see if everything runs properly. The advantages of using the CAT5e cable is that it is an upgraded version of CAT 5 that adds specifications for reducing electromagnetic interference from a twisted pair unshielded to another twisted pair. CAT5e also provides greater signal-carrying capacity. Another advantage of using a CAT5e cable is its support for Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet. Bandwidth is important because it provides information that contains a part of the system. Finally CAT5e upgrade the thickness of the PVC protective coating which has improved the longevity of the cable. For new installations, including cable and crossover, CAT5e provides the speed and CAT6 capacity, but on a much better price. Now that we know what cable we will be using next is the equipment required to build our physical network. Since we are running CAT5e cable we will need to use patch panels to act as a midway. All the wiring will need to be punched down and attached to the back of the patch panel. The front is made up of RJ-45 connectors into which patch cables connect. This prevents any damage to the room wires. Now that......

Constructing a New Structure- Building Codes

...Constructing a new Structure- Building Codes The information in this document should be useful in making design-related decisions that will not only satisfy the move to our new building Information Technology (IT) requirements but also meet the needs of the building and its future occupants with respect to voice, video and data communications. The intention of this document is to provide a comprehensive understanding and reference guide that can be referred to when moving to our new building. Moving into our new building we need to follow certain cable codes and specification. A properly designed network is based around components or wiring units. The components should also follow certain performance specifications so that when installing we will know exactly what types of applications will be supported. The cable specifications and building codes requirements that we use will be based on * ANSI/EIA/TIA standards 568-C-- Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard * ANSI/EIA/TIA 569-- Commercial Building Standards for Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces; ANSI/EIA/TIA 606- Administration Standard for the Telecommunications Infrastructure of Commercial Buildings * ANSI/EIA/TIA 607-Commercial Building Grounding and Bonding Requirements for Telecommunications; BICSI Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual (TDMM) and NFPA 70--National Electric Code (NEC).

New Building – Tools and Wiring

...New Building – Tools and Wiring When a new a new computer science and electrical engineering lab you would need to make the design selection of the network type. Products in the same group each follow the same networking rules, and you can count on them to work together properly. The type of network also dictates what tools and testing is required during and after installation is complete. The most common network types include Ethernet, token ring, and ATM. Each of these three offers a viable alternative for supporting a LAN, each with its own costs and performance benefits. I would choose multi-mode fiber optic cable. For cabling installed in a building or campus involves short lengths, rarely longer than a few hundred feet, with 2 to 48 fibers per cable typically. The fiber is mostly multimode, except for the user who installs hybrid cable with both multimode and single-mode fibers.  Splicing is practically unknown in premises applications. Cables between buildings should be with double jackets, PE for outside plant protection over PVC for building applications requiring flame retardant cable jackets, allowing cables to run continuously between buildings. Connectors often have lower loss than splices, and patch panels give more flexibility for moves, additions and changes.  Most connectors are ST style with a few SCs here and there. Termination is by installing connectors directly on the ends of the fibers, primarily using adhesive technology or......

Building a Structure

...I have been given a grant to make an existing building state of the art by running fiber throughout the space. For this project I will choose an office building as an example of what type of hardware that will be needed inside and outside of the building to accommodate the fiber. I will discuss some safety procedures, and some regulations and standards that will apply to this install that may have not been regarded to when installing copper wire. In this setup, there will be an FTTB (Fiber-to-the-building) passive optical network. On the outside of the building the distribution cables will supply the network access point (NAP) which in turn supplies fiber through drop cables to the buildings NID or Network Interface Device. On the inside of the building in the equipment room will house patch panels and other equipment necessary to support the network. On the outside of the building fiber can reach the building either via an aerial method which run along existing poles that may already carry electrical power lines or by means of direct burial. These methods may also be used in the event I ever needed to expand our current network to another building in future upgrades. “Cables in aerial installations must be able to withstand loading from high winds, ice, birds and climbing animals, and even windblown debris such as branches.” (Oliviero, 2010) If I choose a direct burial route, one advantage over an aerial installation would be that the fiber is less prone to the weather......

Precast Buildings in New Zealand

...PAPER 1(Summary) A perspective on seismic design of Precast concrete structures in New Zealand – Robert Park(PCI journal : 1995) MOMENT RESISTING FRAMES WITH PRECAST REINFORCED ELEMENTS The approach is to design and construct connections that possess stiffness, strength & ductility similar to that of cast-in-place concrete monolithic constructions The three different types of beam column connection arrangement are discussed below: 1. System 1 * The precast beam elements are placed on the cover concrete of cast-in-place columns * The reinforcement is then placed on beam top, the beam-to-column joint core & next storey height column * Lastly, cast-in-place concrete is placed * A mechanical key may be provided at beam end to take care of the vertical shear. Advantage * Large reduction in quantity of site formwork Limitations * Column dimension need to be reasonably large to accommodate the required development length of bottom reinforcement of the precast beams in joint core. * The critical section of the potential plastic hinge region in beam occurs at the column face where there is a vertical joint between the cast-in-place concrete of the joint core & end of the precast beam. 2. System 2 The precast portion of the reinforced concrete beams extend from near mid-span to mid-span and include within the precast element over the columns the complex arrangement of joint core hoop reinforcement which is fabricated at......

...Rey Lozada NT1330 homework June 19, 2015 IP Addressing Scenario According to the scenario, the company will have a single, physical location with approximately 145 hosts on the network. In this case, I would us a class C address such as 192.168.0.0. Reason why is because you can put all the devices on a single subnet with the subnet mask 255.255.255.0/24. This would allow for 253 usable host addresses, which is more than needed in this case. Whether you should dynamically or statically assign those IP’s goes, I suggest assigning it dynamically. Unless you don’t mind MANUALLY managing 218 hosts, you should definitely go with DHCP. The router will be well capable of handing out addresses for 145 hosts. Since there is only one location used in this case, only one network should be used as it will only complicate things to have more than one network. Since DHCP is being used as the suggestion, whether we should use a router and/or firewall, or utilizing Windows Server…the answer is yes. The router for dishing out the IP addresses and the firewall should be used for security purposes. Using Windows Server just for DHCP is rather overkill. Using these suggested methods should also accommodate for at least 50% growth within the next few years.

Building a New Structure

...Lairquneder Robinson 06 April 2015 Building a New Structure A lot of thought, decision, and design goes into building a new structure on a school campus. A few of those decisions goes towards what wiring and cabling the building will have. There are quite a few codes, standards, and specifications that needs to be followed. Some of those guidelines are NFPA, NEMA, FCC, UL, and NEC. NFPA stands for National Fire Protection Association. NFPA was founded in 1896 as a nonprofit organization to help protect property, people, and the environment from fire damage. It’s now an international organization representing over 100 countries with 65,000 members. NFPA’s mission is to help reduce the risk of fire through safety requirements, research, codes, and fire-related education. NFPA is published every three years. It covers issues related to electrical safety requirements and it’s not used as a design specification or instruction manual. NFPA publishes 300 codes and standards. They are designed to minimize the risk and effects of fire. Its over 200 technical codes-and standard- development committees and is comprised of over 2,000 volunteer seats. The volunteers vote on revision and proposals in a process that is accredited by the ANSI (American National Standards Institute). NFPA also provides free online access to its codes and standards. NEMA stands for the National Electrical Manufacturers Association. NEMA is the association of medical imaging and electrical......
