GENERAL
This document describes the product and execution requirements related to furnishing and
installing the Structured Cabling System as shown on the Drawings and specified herein.
SCOPE OF WORK
A.
The Structured Cabling Contractor (SCC) shall provide a complete Structured Cabling
System (SCS) as defined in this section.
B.
As described elsewhere in these Documents the system consists of fiber optic and copper
cabling, and related hardware. In addition to the basic cable plant requirements, the testing
and identification requirements are also defined. Finally, racks, enclosures and other
related hardware are indicated herein.
C.
The installation shall be of an "Open System," using standard media and layout, standard
connections and interfaces. The Contractor shall adhere to this Specification, local and
national codes and provide quality workmanship.
D.
This section includes:
1. Main Telecommunications Room (MTR)
2. Telecommunications Room (TR)
3. Racks, Enclosures and Cable management
4. Ladder Rack
5. Rack mounted surge suppressor
6. Lightning Protector
7. Backbone cabling
8. Horizontal cabling
9. Consolidation Points
10. MTR and TR connections
a. Patch Panels
b. Fiber enclosures
11. Work Area outlets
a. Faceplates
b. Connectors (jacks)
12. Work Area Extensions to Device
13. Hangers and Supports
E.
The components used on this project for voice, data, and CATV shall be as identified in
Part 2 of this Section.
F.
Unless noted otherwise on the Drawings, for all 4 pair Category cable, this project shall use
T568B termination for eight (8) position modular jack pair assignments as specified per the
ANSI/TIA 568-C wiring standard. For fiber, follow ANSI/TIA 568-C.3, Optical Fiber
Cabling Components Standard, and its published addenda.

G.
All continuous pathways (i.e., conduit, cable tray, raceway, etc.) required to support the
cabling shall be provided by the Electrical Contractor under Division 26 unless indicated
otherwise in the Contract Documents.
1. All non-continuous or non-rigid pathways (i.e., J-hooks, inner-duct, etc.) required to
support the cabling shall be provided by the SCC under the Structured Cabling System,
unless indicated otherwise in the Contract Documents.
2. All ladder rack, cable tray, and related pathway hardware built into Telecommunication
Spaces shall be provided by the SCC.
H.
The SCC shall be responsible for providing the racks and enclosures as required and
specified herein.
I.
The SCC shall test and label the entire installation as specified and required by the codes
and standards.
J.
The SCC shall be responsible for providing the hangers and support system specified herein
and shown on the Drawings.
K.
Final sizing and location of J-hooks, hangers, and supports shall be the responsibility of the
Contractor. However, NO increases to the bid price and/or the schedule extension shall be
allowed due to equipment alterations.
L.
For new installations, J-hooks fill capacity shall not exceed 70% of its rated cable fill
capacity (i.e., if J-bracket is rated for 100 cables, no more than 70 shall be installed).
M.
J-hooks are intended for voice, data, video, audio, and security cables only. They are
intended for cable routing in areas of less than 100 Category 6 cables. All other low
voltage cabling systems, such as building controls, shall have cabling run-ins separate
raceway system.
N.
All hangers and support material shall be galvanized or stainless steel, rust free material.
O.
The Telecommunications Contractor shall ensure that the General Contractor and Painting
Contractor acknowledge that the painting or over spray of any single or group of 4 pair
horizontal telecommunications Category cable is not allowed. Any painted or over sprayed
cable(s) shall be completely removed and replaced at the Painting Contractor’s expense.
No in-line connectors, splices, taps or other repairs will be permitted. Painted cable will
not be covered as part of an extended warranty. Painted cable obscures the print legend and
can alter the cable’s mechanical properties and fire rating. Painted cable compromises its
integrity and/or performance. It may act as an accelerant or create an additional smoke
hazard in the event of a fire and as such this is considered a life safety issue. Paint
contamination and/or removing paint from the cable with a solvent can affect the cable’s
durability and its electrical characteristics.
P.
The Telecommunications Contractor shall ensure that no telecommunications cable shall
come into contact with firestopping material. Firestopping material includes putties, paints,
and foams as this may void the extended warranty and cause issues with cable performance
and future expansion.
