slide8

The types of cables that are recognized by TIA for horizontal cabling are as follows:

4-pair, 100-ohm unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cables.

2-pair, 150-ohm shielded twisted-pair (STP) cables.

2-fiber, 62.5/125-micron optical fiber cable.

slide11

LAB 13 OBJECTIVE

Installing a Punch-down Modular Outlet

To understand how to install an RJ45 punch-down modular outlet on a section of 100-ohm UTP cable

slide12

TIP

The end of the cable needs to be prepared first. Once you have done that, simply disregard the instructions that pertain to connector or cable types that are not included in your parts inventory. Keep in mind that the unshielded twisted pair cable does not require the grounding clip to be installed. Use the stuffer cap for one side of wires, and the punch-down tools for the other side. Once the wires have been punched down, go ahead and install the second stuffer cap so that both halves of the jack look identical.

slide14

TIP

Recall that the RJ45 cable from Lab procedure 6 was already checked. Any problems noted on this test should point to the newly created cable.

slide16

TIP

Don’t worry about installing the modular jack upside-down, because the design of the wall plate will prevent this.

LAB 14 OBJECTIVE

Assembling Edge-Connector Modular Outlets

To understand how to assemble an RJ45 edge-connector modular outlet on a section of 100-ohm UTP cable

slide22

TIP

Although you will be using 100-ohm UTP cable, this type of RJ45 modular outlet can accommodate STP cable of both the 100-ohm, 8-wire and 150-ohm (Token Ring), 4-wire systems. When installing the connector within the matching housing, your parts may either snap or screw together.

slide25

TIP

A 110Connect arrangement comes with the edge connector already installed in the port housing and remains this way during the wiring. The AMP-BARREL arrangement requires that the edge connector be terminated prior to its being mounted into the housing. Both types of installations are covered in the instruction sheet.

slide26

TIP

Don’t forget to install the two stuffer caps on the edge connector, regardless of how the wires were punched down. They help to protect the connections against exposure.

slide28

TIP

As a rule, any housing that will not currently carry an active service would be outfitted with a blank insert, until a future need for expansion occurs. You will not be installing a face plate as part of this lab procedure.

slide35

The important specifications related to work area cabling include:

Equipment cords should have the same performance capabilities as patch cords of the same type and category.

When adapters are used, they should be compatible with the transmission capabilities of the equipment to which they connect.

Maximum horizontal cable lengths are specified using a maximum cable length of 3 meters (9.8 feet) for work area equipment cords.

slide36

The important points to remember about horizontal cabling subsystems include:

Any application-specific components (such as splitters or baluns) cannot be installed as part of the horizontal cabling system. If used, they are located external to the telecommunications outlet or horizontal crossconnect.

The proximity of horizontal cabling to sources of EMI must be taken into account.

slide37

The important points to remember about horizontal cabling subsystems include: (continued)

Horizontal cable types that have been recognized by TIA/EIA T568A include:

4-pair, 100-ohm UTP

2-pair, 150-ohm STP-A

2-fiber (duplex), 62.5/125 µm, or a multimode optical fiber such as 50/125 µm, which is permitted under TIA/EIA T568B

slide38

The important points to remember about horizontal cabling subsystems include: (continued)

ISO/IEC 11801 permits 120-ohm UTP, and 50/125 µm multimode optical fiber.

Multipair and multiunit cables are permitted, as long as they meet the hybrid/bundled cable requirements of TIA/EIA T568A-3.

Grounding must conform to all applicable local/federal building codes, as well as TIA/EIA 607.

slide39

The important points to remember about horizontal cabling subsystems include: (continued)

A minimum of two telecommunications outlets are required for each individual work area, such that:

The first outlet is wired to 100-ohm, twisted-pair.

The second outlet is wired to 100-ohm, twisted-pair, or to 150-ohm STP-A, or to 62.5/125 µm multimode fiber.

slide40

The important points to remember about horizontal cabling subsystems include: (continued)

One transition point (TP) is allowed between different forms of the same cable type, such as in situations where under-carpet cable connects to round cable. This term is broader by definition in ISO/IEC 11801 than in TIA/EIA T568A. In addition to the transitions for under-carpet cabling, it also includes consolidation point (CP) connections.

slide41

The important points to remember about horizontal cabling subsystems include: (continued)

Although 50-ohm coax is recognized by TIA/EIA T568A, it is not recommended for new cabling installations.

Although additional outlets may be provided, they are considered to be in addition to, rather than replacements for, the minimum requirements of the standard.

For copper-based horizontal cabling, bridged taps and splices are not permitted. Splices are allowed for fiber, however.

slide48

The types of cables that are recognized by TIA for vertical backbone cabling are as follows:

4-pair, 100-ohm unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cables.

2-pair, 150-ohm shielded twisted-pair (STP-A) cables.

2-fiber, 62.5/125-micron multi-mode optical fiber cable.

1-fiber, 9/125-micron single-mode optical fiber cable.

slide50

The important points to remember about vertical backbone cabling systems include:

Equipment connections to backbone cabling should be made with cable lengths of 30 m (98 feet) or less.

The backbone cabling shall be configured in a star topology. Each horizontal crossconnect is wired directly to a main crossconnect or to an intermediate crossconnect, then to a main crossconnect.

slide51

The important points to remember about vertical backbone cabling systems include: (continued)

The backbone is limited to no more than two hierarchical levels of crossconnects (main and intermediate). No more than one crossconnect may exist between a main and a horizontal crossconnect and no more than three crossconnects may exist between any two horizontal crossconnects.

A total maximum backbone distance of 90 m (295 feet) is specified for high bandwidth capability over copper. This distance is for uninterrupted backbone runs. (No intermediate crossconnect).

slide52

The important points to remember about vertical backbone cabling systems include: (continued)

The distance between the terminations located in the entrance facility and the main crossconnect shall be documented, and should be made available to the service provider.

Multipair cable is allowed, provided that it satisfies the power sum crosstalk requirements.

The proximity of copper-based backbone cabling to sources of electromagnetic interference (EMI) shall be taken into account.

Bridged taps are not allowed.

slide53

The important points to remember about vertical backbone cabling systems include: (continued)

Recognized media may be used individually or in combination, as required by the installation. Quantity of pairs and fibers needed in individual backbone runs depends on the area served. Currently recognized backbone cables consist of:

100-ohm UTP cable

150-ohm STP-A cable

62.5/125 micron optical fiber cable (recall that the TIA T568B specification recognizes 50/125 µm multimode fiber)

single-mode optical fiber

slide54

The important points to remember about vertical backbone cabling systems include: (continued)

Crossconnects for different cable types must be located in the same facilities.

In ISO/IEC 11801, the equivalent cabling elements to the main crossconnect (MC) and intermediate crossconnect (IC) are called the campus distributor (CD) and building distributor (BD), respectively.

Just as with horizontal cabling, two alternate backbone cabling types are allowed by ISO/IEC (120-ohm, twisted pair and 50/125 µm, multimode optical fiber).

slide55

The important points to remember about vertical backbone cabling systems include: (continued)

Again, 50-ohm coaxial cabling is recognized by TIA/EIA T568A, but is not recommended for new installations.

slide56

The following are the currently recognized categories of UTP cabling by the TIA/EIA:

Category 3.

Category 4.

Category 5.

slide58

The following is a list of recommendations for the installation of 100-ohm UTP work area outlets:

All four pairs of a 4-pair cable should be terminated on an 8-position jack.

All work area outlets should be terminated as either T568A or T568B.

Both ends of a line should be terminated by the same designation, either as TIA/EIA T568A or TIA/EIA T568B.

The suggested maximum allowable untwisting for CAT3 cable is 3 inches.

slide59

The following is a list of recommendations for the installation of 100-ohm UTP work area outlets: (continued)

TIA/EIA T568A specifies that the maximum allowable untwisting of CAT4 cable is 1 inch, and for CAT5 cable, the maximum allowable untwisting is ½ inch.

It is suggested that the maximum allowable untwisting for any category above CAT5 be less than ½ inch.

Always leave 1 to 3 feet of service loop for repairs, changes, moves, and additions.

slide60

The following is a list of recommendations for the installation of 100-ohm UTP work area outlets: (continued)

The bend radius should be no tighter than four times the cable’s outside diameter (usually 1 inch).

The bend radius for cables with more than four cable pairs is ten times the cable’s outside diameter.

slide61

The following is a list of specifications for installing 100-ohm UTP cable:

Do not exceed 25 pounds of pulling tension on a 4-pair cable.

Do not cut, or damage, the cable’s outer sheath when pulling it.

Follow the proper color code.

All of the hardware used should be of the IDC type.

Installation must be neat and well organized.

slide62

The following is a list of specifications for installing 100-ohm UTP cable: (continued)

Document every phase of the installation, including the locations of all components.

Label cable runs at their beginning, middle, and end for easy identification.

slide64

Cable design experts have zeroed in on several chronic problems that have, as their primary cause, bad patch cables being used somewhere along the data path. These include:

Poor data quality through various crossconnections

Communications networks bombarded with increased error rates and junk traffic

Severe crosstalk and attenuation problems

Generally degraded network performance

slide65

Today’s manufacturers are striving to differentiate their patch cable products through:

Quality testing

Various colors

Tolerance buffers

Icons

Strain-relief boots

Cost

Snagless features

User-friendliness

Manufacturers’ labels

Quick turnaround on orders

Performance level warranties

slide66

LAB 15 OBJECTIVE

Installing and Testing a DB15 Connector

To understand how to install a DB15 connector on transceiver cable for use with 10base5 Thicknet systems

slide70

TIP

If you are not wiring the shield to pin 8, strip one inch of foil shield from each end of the cable, without damaging any of the twisted-pair wires inside the shield. Again, use the tension scale/tape measure for accuracy. This leaves 1/4 inch of foil shielding intact, and 1 inch of the twisted pairs (with bare drain wire, where applicable) exposed at each end of the cable.

slide73

TIP

The edge of the crimper tool should line up evenly with the edge of the barrel portion of the pin.

slide75

TIP

If the wire is not tight, try rotating the pin a quarter turn, and recrimp the barrel.

slide82

TIP

Figure 3-32 includes a wired foil shield to pin 8.

slide83

TIP

The multimeter should show an infinite resistance between any adjacent pins (or wires) with the exception of pin 8 and the foil shield, if applicable, and a short circuit on matching continuity checks. If it does not, the cable is not correctly prepared, and you may have to repeat this procedure. If the cable checks out good so far, continue with the remaining steps.

slide86

TIP

Make a preliminary check to be sure that none of the wires are blocking the screw holes.

slide87

TIP

You don’t want to tighten these housing halves completely until after the next few steps.

slide89

TIP

Now it’s time to install the female DB15 connector on the free end of the cable.

slide92

TIP

Figure 3-37 includes a wired foil shield to pin 8.

slide93

TIP

The multimeter should show an infinite resistance between any adjacent pins (or wires) with the exception of pin 8 and the foil shield, if applicable, and a short circuit on matching continuity checks. If it does not, the cable is not correctly prepared, and you may have to repeat this procedure. Remember that the cable checked good before you mounted the male hood. Any problems should be confined to the newly installed female connector shell.

slide94

TIP

Make a preliminary check to be sure that none of the wires are blocking the screw holes.

slide96

TIP

You don’t want to tighten these housing halves completely until after the next few steps.

slide97

TIP

To recover usable parts, clip the connectors and store the remaining length of cable, and disassemble the hoods, strain reliefs, and end connector shells. Use the insertion/extraction tool to remove any male/female pins from the end connectors. Discard the used pins and twisted-pair fragments and recover all of the short screws, slide clips, metal clips, retaining screws, connector shells, housing hoods, and long screws.

slide103

The physical design of 150-ohm STP-A cable should meet the following specifications:

The insulated conductor shall not exceed the diameter of .26 mm (0.102 inches) maximum.

The cable shall be restricted to 2-pair only.

The color code for 150-ohm STP cable is as follows:

Pair 1: green is tip, and red is ring.

Pair 2: black is tip, and orange is ring.

slide104

Two types of crossconnect panels are generally used for STP patching:

A panel with IDCs for termination of the building cables

An open panel with lock openings for 150-ohm, STP snap-type media interface connectors

slide105

In either case, the installer needs to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for making the terminations. Other recommendations should include:

Allow 1 to 3 feet ( 1/3 to 1 meter) of service loop for future adds, moves, and changes.

For 19-inch (483-mm) rack-mounted crossconnect panel installations, allow room on the rack for possible telecommunications equipment associated with the 150-ohm STP cable.

slide106

In either case, the installer needs to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for making the terminations. Other recommendations should include: (continued)

Racks should have at least the following clearances for access and cable dressing space:

30 inches (762 mm) in the rear

36 inches (915 mm) in the front

14 inches (356 mm) on the side

slide107

The following list summarizes the most important recommendations for the installation of 150-ohm STP cables:

Always follow the manufacturer’s recommended termination methods.

Maintain at least 1 meter (approximately 3 feet) of cable for a service loop.

Telecommunications closet design must follow TIA/EIA 569.

Patch cord lengths should be limited to 7 meters (approximately 23 feet).

Equipment cord lengths should be limited to 3 meters (approximately 10 feet).

slide108

To maintain proper cable management techniques, you should:

Plan for those inevitable future changes by allowing sufficient space in closets, and elsewhere, to make them. Assure that all connections include the necessary cabling service loops to effect these changes, and to maintain category compliance.

slide109

To maintain proper cable management techniques, you should: (continued)

Include the following items in your worksheet documentation for each installation:

Indicate the length of cable runs to each room.

In order to save hours of future troubleshooting, document all of your wiring and test results.

Also document any problems that may have occurred, along with any solutions that were found.

slide110

Include the following items in your worksheet documentation for each installation: (continued)

Differentiate between all primary and secondary outlet locations in your documentation, and include the station phone numbers for each access line.

Be sure to document the cabling color code, the wire color combinations for each line, and the relationships between the wire colors. This is very important in situations where colors have been converted at a distribution device.

slide111

Include the following items in your worksheet documentation for each installation: (continued)

Maintain the relationship of pairs and lines at the distribution device, and clearly label the lines if the distribution device does not have a valid marking scheme.

Note any special circumstances.

For future reference, remember to provide a copy of the documentation at the wiring location (near a distribution device) and to keep a copy for your records.

slide112

To maintain proper cable management techniques, you should: (continued)

Be certain that all your cable runs are labeled in the middle, and at both ends, and clearly indicate the marking scheme on your worksheet.

Logically plan the system crossconnect points so that each individual channel can be tested without making additional or unnecessary connections, which would degrade system performance. This is also an important point for category compliance.

slide113

To maintain proper cable management techniques, you should: (continued)

Avoid making quick fixes to any installation. Instead, use standard wiring practices to ensure that all connections can be easily found and identified, now and later. Crossconnections made in ceilings, for example, are not standard, and will probably be forgotten about and difficult to manage.

slide114

To maintain proper cable management techniques, you should: (continued)

Make your wiring plan consistent throughout your documentation. Regardless of whether the installation calls for a simple or complex wiring plan, it must:

Be complete and orderly.

Be scrupulously maintained.

Be readily accessible.

Be decipherable by other installers.

slide115

To maintain proper cable management techniques, you should: (continued)

Neatness is an essential ingredient of any installation. Therefore:

All wiring should be laid out methodically and consistently.

Closets should be kept clean, with adequate room to work.

Unused equipment, leftover materials, and miscellaneous items should be removed from all ERs and TCs to provide full access to the cabling and the equipment currently in use at these locations.
