Burlington Coat Factory Tucson - Hardwire Site Survey and Fiber Cable Installation

Background

This client hired Integrated IO® to wire its facilities with a state-of-the-art structured cabling system.

Vision

Integrated IO® structured cabling network specification experts sought to devise a durable, affordable, and effective system that would meet the client's needs, reducing the likelihood of noise interference and hindrances to bandwidth.

Solution

After conducting a preliminary site survey, the Integrated IO® team decided that its integrated solution would consist of:

  • A Fiber Optic Cable Backbone

The decision to use fiber optic network cables as the backbone of the BCF project was made during the initial site survey. Composed of a series of glass or plastic threads, fiber optic cables are thinner, lighter, and boast a greater bandwidth capacity than traditional metal wires. They are also less susceptible to interference, providing users with fewer interruptions and less frustration. The pros at Integrated IO® wanted to provide Tucson's Burlington Coat Factory store with the best possible infrastructure.

  • Cat 5e Cable Installation

Category 5 (Cat 5, for short) cables are a popular type of twisted pair cables, used in structured cabling applications to carry internet signals for network connections. Cat 5e cables are simply an enhanced version, which have proven even more reliable and effective at rejecting noise interference than their standard counterparts. It was determined during the site survey that Cat 5e would be the ideal structured cabling network specification for this site.

  • IDF Rack Installation

Drawing on our experience assessing structured cabling systems, we know how to optimize the layout and design of the wire run diagrams we create. Our experience also means that we know how to hide wires in walls and arrange them in know how to hide wires in walls and arrange exceptional cable management systems. We knew right away, when assessing the BCF site, that intermediate distribution frame (IDF) cable racks would be needed to optimize the connectivity network we were fostering. These IDF racks, which must be strategically placed and mounted, serve as the middlemen between exterior cables and individual workstations.
