First, I would figure out who has jurisdiction as far as which codes must be followed (i.e.
local, state, county, city, NEC, etc.). Local codes would take precedence over all other
installation guides. I would definitely consult NEC Chapters 1-3, 5, 7 and
Crosstalk: a transfer of unwanted signals (noise) from one pair within a cable to another.
Waveguides: a structure, such as a cable, that guides electromagnetic waves along its length.
FTTH: Fiber-to-the-home. Fiber reaches the boundary of the living spac
Horizontal and Backbone Cables these cables run between a cross-connect panel in the
telecommunications room to a telecommunications outlet in the work area.
Patch Cords these will be used on patch panels to provide the connection between
Fiber optic cable has many advantages over copper cable. Fiber transmits data much faster over longer
distances than copper. Fiber cable is also smaller diameter and weighs less than copper cabling, making it ideal
for a variety of cabling solutions.
Almost every U.S. employer and worker is under OSHA jurisdiction for occupational safety
and health standards in the workplace and elsewhere on the job. OSHA gets its authority from
the Federal, Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act or OSHA)
Refraction of Light
Refraction is the bending of a wave when it enters a medium where it's speed is different. The refraction
of light when it passes from a fast medium to a slow medium bends the light ray toward the normal to the
boundary between the two
The Jones Corporation of Virginia is accepting proposals to design and develop a functional

Wired connections are easier to set up while wireless requires configuring the router and
more steps on the computer side of things. Also, with a wireless setup, other electrical devices
can still potentially interfere with your internet, in some cases ca
Some important things to consider when addressing your cabling needs are your current bandwidth needs,
your expected future bandwidth requirements and your budget.
A primary concern in determining the type of cabling to use is your network's current bandw
Horizontal Cable: These cables run between a cross-connect panel in a telecommunications room and a
telecommunications outlet located near the work area.
Backbone Cable: This cable runs between telecommunications rooms, enclosures and the main cross-conne
