Texas – IT staff at a federal financial services company expanded their Gigabit Ethernet network using Cablesys Category 6 (CAT 6) Pre-terminated Patch Panel System. They deployed forty-eight Ethernet ports. Cablesys helped build the materials.
Cablesys built two 24-Port CAT 6 patch panels. The process involved terminating CAT 6 keystone connectors onto 600MHz CAT 6e Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables in 25-foot lengths. The connectors were assembled into bezels, which allows them to snap into the patch panel. The cables were bundled and labeled to make routing and identification easy. All terminations were factory tested using a Fluke DSX8000 cable analyzer.
Once their staff received the materials at the project site, they screwed the patch panel and cable management brackets onto server racks, routed the cables, and snapped in the connectivity. The project required no on-site termination and testing.
