Project Skills Solutions were required to attend site and terminate and test cat5e cabling, from our original site survey our engineers noted that the existing cables (installed by a separate cabling contractor), have either not been labelled or have been poorly labelled.
Our engineers were required to tone cables, identify each cable and label correctly. With 29 rooms there were over 170 cat5e cables to label.
The existing cables installed by a separate contractor were too short, and could not reach the server room. Project Skills Solutions installed a patch panel at a point the existing cables could reach, labelled the cables and installed more cat5e to take the existing cables down to the main server room. Engineers then installed a server rack and patch panel to complete the network.
Upon completion all cabling was tested with a fluke dtx-1200, and full test results provided to the client.
