  7. New Build Projects & Networks • The Issues • Health & Safety • Network Design & Topology • Procurement Management • Active Components • Vertical Fibre • Horizontal UTP • Face Plates & Patch Panels • Server Room • Wiring Closet • Installation • Acceptance Criteria & Testing

  8. New Build Projects & Networks • Network Design & Topology • Architects Drawings • Server Rooms • Wiring Closets • Robust failover equipment • WiFi Access Point locations • IP Addressing Scheme • Security Policy ( Firewall config ) • VLANS • Telephony over IP?

  9. New Build Projects & Networks • Procurement Management • Procurement Frameworks • European Journal • Request for Information (RFI) • Invitation To Tender (ITT) • Selection Criteria • Cost • Technical Suitability • Cost of Ownership • Future Proof

  11. New Build Projects & Networks • Vertical Fibre • Risers • Single Mode (mono mode) • Multi Mode • OTDR Testing • FCPC patch connectors ISP favourite

  12. New Build Projects & Networks • Horizontal UTP • Certification of installers • Warranty & TDR test results • LSZH • Containment, Trunking & Conduet • Cable tray above ceiling • Labelling of cables • Patch leads

  13. New Build Projects & Networks • Face Plates & Patch Panels • Numbering Scheme • Velcro wrap rather than cable ties • Cable management • “Moves & Changes” after installation • Cat 6 harnessing in panel?

  14. New Build Projects & Networks • Server & Comms Room • Overhead cable basket • Raised Floor • Air conditioning ( with UPS ) • Fire suppression system • Cabinet accessibility

  15. New Build Projects & Networks • Wiring Closets • Resist cramming all into one location • Ventilation may be required • Cat 6 bend radius • Cable management (velcro wrap) • Don’t mix Cat 6 install with old Cat 5 patch cables

  16. New Build Projects & Networks • Installation • Visit site regularly • Health & Safety briefing • Be diplomatic & manage confrontation • Don’t be a meddling dictator • Change management • Cat 6 bend radius etc • Cable management

  17. New Build Projects & Networks • Acceptance Criteria & Testing • Cat 5 & 6 Cable certifying • Test sheets • Fibre optic ODTR tests • WiFi coverage survey • Routing Switching & VLAN tests • Agreed with vendor from the start

  18. New Build Projects & Networks • Conclusion • Download PDF document • Talk to your RSC ask for their input • Take ownership ASAP • Create new build RSC Forum and share knowledge/experience • Make sure your new campus has full JANET service connectivity included in new build budget (fibre etc) WWW-RSC-SW-SCOTLAND.AC.UK /Technical/Newbuild.htm m.clark@rsc-sw-scotland.ac.uk Mark Clark eAdvisor: Infrastructure
