Nevada – IT staff at a communications provider deployed twenty-four Ethernet ports using Cablesys Category 5e (CAT 5e) Pre-terminated Patch Panel System. Cablesys helped build the materials.
Cablesys built a 24-Port CAT 5e patch panel kit. The process involved terminating CAT 5e Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) keystone connectors onto 350MHz CAT 5e UTP cables in 50-foot lengths. All terminations were tested using a Fluke DSX8000 cable analyzer. Bezels were applied to the connectors, which allows them to snap into the patch panel. The cables were bundled and labeled to make routing and identification easy. Rear cable management brackets were included for support.
Once their staff received the materials at the project site, they screwed the patch panel brackets onto a server rack, routed the cables, and snapped in the connectivity. The project required no on-site termination and testing.
