Communications Design in Military Projects

Communications Design and implementation


what is involved in communications design
What is Involved in Communications Design?
  • RFP’s
  • Design Narratives
  • Outlet Locations and Type
  • Detail Drawings
  • Specifications (SpecsIntact)
what is the i3a technical criteria
What is the I3A Technical Criteria
  • Design of Information Infrastructure Architecture
  • Based on ANSI/TIA/EIA Standards with DOD preferences
  • Establishes an Army-wide IT architectural design criteria for telecommunications
  • Takes precedence in all cases over the UFC 3-580-01
  • Not a specification, a Technical Criteria for design
i3a design requirements
I3A Design Requirements
  • ANSI/TIA/EIA Standards are the basis as a minimum
  • CSI Master Format 2004 numbers and titles
  • ISEC - reviews, approves, or make comments for correction to the contract drawings for installation
  • Telecommunication designs shall be rendered and stamped by a Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD)
who developed the standards
Who Developed the Standards
  • More than 150 Subject Matter Experts Include:
      • Architects
      • Commissioning Agents
      • Electrical Engineers
      • Energy Consultants
      • Fire Protection Consultants
      • Information Technology
      • Insurance Risk Assessors
      • Mechanical Engineers
      • Security Consultants
      • Structural Engineers
  • BICSI (pr. “BIK SEE”) (the “Building Industry Consulting Service International”)
  • Headquartered in Tampa, Florida the organization has membership in nearly 100 countries.
  • Credentials are recognized worldwide by the telecommunications industry, DOD, and USACOE for cabling installers and designers who specialize in complex communications systems
designer contractor roles
Designer/Contractor Roles
  • Contractor does not have to be an RCDD or have one on staff
  • Electrical, mechanical, and plumbing contractors are not required to be a P.E. or have on staff
  • BICSI Technician Certification for contractor
  • Contractor can’t possibly design after building design is complete
  • No oversight if contractor is designer and installer
  • RCDD designs and contractor installs
communications drawings
Communications Drawings
  • It is the RCDD’s responsibility to provide “T” drawings not the contractor
  • CSI Master Format 2004: T-Sheets
    • Floor plans
    • Communications Room Detail
    • Riser Diagrams
    • Cable Tray Plan
    • Etc….
project management
Project Management
  • Project management is critical after design to ensure contractor installations are I3A compliant
    • Submittal Review
    • Inspections
    • Test Report Analysis
    • Random Testing
pre design phase meeting with owner
Pre-Design Phase Meeting with Owner

Why is a pre-design meeting needed with the owner?

  • I3A is a minimum criteria and does not cover all user preferences
  • Communications design is based on necessity and performance not functionally
  • To ensure that the RFP truly represents what the owner needs
  • Special applications the owner may have, and make sure the infrastructure design will match their equipment

Secret Internet Protocol Router Network

  • SIPRNET version 5.0 Technical criteria published by USAISEC with mandates from CTTA , DISA, DAA, DOD, DOIM (NEC), NSTISSC, and TEMPEST
  • Design for SIPRNET shall be coordinated with the CTTA and DAA
  • CTTA determines the quantity and location of SIPRNET outlets
  • CTTA- reviews, approves or make comments for correction to the contract drawings for installation contract documents for installation
siprnet cont
  • SIPRNET Environment:
  • Environment determines the need for a PDS
  • CAA (3 Classes)
  • LCA
  • UAA
  • Information Transport Systems are designed per I3A and TIA/EIA Standards for the purpose of scalability, code compliance, standard compliance, and performance.
  • The I3A standards were created so that RCDD’s will design communications infrastructures that are standard across all Army-wide installations
  • Technical Criteria for the Installation of Information Infrastructure Architecture, I3A (February 2010 )
  • Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC)
  • TIA/EIA Standards 2009
  • CSI Master Format 2004
  • Technical Guide for the Integration of SIPRNET, (Version 5.0, August 2008)
bits and bytes
Bits and Bytes
  • For example, it takes eight bits (1 byte) to store a single character.
  • The capital letter “A” is expressed digitally as 01000001. A small case “a” is represented in binary code as 01100001.
