Back at work....

Cat-5e Bundle-4I've noticed I haven't posted much about what's happening at work. We are moving the roughly 200 people from a building we own into leased space. (It's a tax thing.) Today I had our spare cables trucked over, so we can start running once they get the carpet down. (Don't want carpet glue on my cables!)

Also had them bring over the unequal flange seismic-4 relay rack that we had:
Equipment Rack
With the newer equipment I can fit everything into a single rack. Top to bottom in the rack:

Patch Panel, 4 duplex-lc connectors, fiber to the main equipment room, and a dozen cat-5 cables just in case.
2w patch to backboard, 1-24
four rows of jacks to floor positions 1-24
48 port Ethernet switch
four rows of jacks to floor positions 25-48
2w patch to backboard, 25-48
2w patch to backboard, 49-72
four rows of jacks to floor positions 49-72
48 port Ethernet switch
four rows of jacks to floor positions 73-96
2w patch to backboard, 72-96
8w patch to backboard, 1-24
four rows of jacks to floor positions 97+

15 amp UPS
48 volt backup battery

The backboard consists of a half green and a half blue. 50 pair from the 1.1, 150 pairs from TE2, and the above mentioned jacks. Analog dial tone will be from the 1.1 to either a 2w or an 8w jack (single line or multiline phone.) The workerbees get their phones from the Avaya system in TE2, hence the larger cable, all 2w.

95+% of patching will be 12" cables from switch or patch to a floor jack immediately above or below.
