When an environmental health and safety company in Carlsbad, Calif., changed locations to a new, large commercial building, it redesigned the top floor of the two-story, 75,000 square foot building it was relocating to with high-performance structured cabling system from ICC, La Mirada, Calif. The end user cited the importance of having a reliable network infrastructure to protect large amounts of health and safety compliance-related data and support its business operations.
The company chose cabling experts, River Fire & Security, San Diego, an ICC Certified Elite installer and a licensed fire and security contractor with more than 21 years of professional experience. The new project required an end-to-end CAT 6 data cabling system to support multi-user computers and an Avaya telephone system. ICC’s CAT 6 modular connectors, patch panels and premise cables are specifically tuned together for the best possible permanent-link performance and exceed the TIA-568-C.2 standard when installed end-to-end.

panels were installed in the equipment room. More than 100,000 feet of ICC CAT 6 premise cables were pulled and routed from the equipment room and dropped to all work areas. ICC 100-pair 110 wiring blocks were also installed for voice distribution. River Fire installed outlets configured with VGA inserts and 3.5 mm stereo speaker connectors for high quality video and audio output. When installing a structured cabling system, reliability is always a concern. To offer piece of mind to the end user, River Fire verified the entire system with a manufacturer lifetime warranty. Every outlet and connectivity port was tested to meet or exceed the industry’s TIA performance standards. Since 1984, ICC has offered end-to-end structured cabling solutions for data, voice, audio, video and fiber optic connectivity for commercial and residential installations.
