Greystar Laboratories
Irving, TX
February 24, 2021

We cabled the new lab for GreyStone Laboratories.  We pulled 13 cables and installed a Leviton Quick Disconnect 24 Port Patch Panel.  We also provided a 24 port Netgear POE switch. The customer was extremely happy with the final result.  This customer called us from the internet and needed a cabling vendor that could meet him when he flew in town from Florida.  We where happy to help at his new Irving, Tx location.  

 

IPSY
Fort Worth, TX
February 24, 2021

Our techs ran six Cat 6 network cables from the production area for several manager desks in a bull pen-type area back to the server room.  We provided surface mount  2 port Leviton boxes at each of the three desks.  The customer was happy with the completed work.  The only challenge was running the cable through the second floor down to the data room through a shaft in the men's bathroom through an access panel.  

Rudolph's Meat Market
Dallas, TX
February 22, 2021

The customer, Rudolph's Meat Market, is a 100-year-old full butcher shop, located in the heart of downtown Dallas on Elm St.  

They called us after the huge snowstorm, that caused tons of damage due to power outages all over Texas.  We got on-site, that same day, and were able to reprogram their voice mail for the phone system.   The customer had an Avaya Partner ACS with a voicemail pc card.

Kate Spade
Fort Worth, TX
February 22, 2021

We installed approximately eight IP phones.  We removed their old Partner ACS phones and ported the line to their new IP phones.  

Ocean Blue Express
Irving, TX
February 12, 2021

This was a small job where we pulled about eleven new Cat 6 cables and moved their existing patch panel onto a vertical wall mount bracket so we could add the network switch parallel to it.  They had a very small network closet, so this was not the prettiest solution but the most cost-effective and practical.  This project met their budget and allowed them to utilize all of their office space.  We ended up pulling (4) dual  Cat 6 drops to four cubicles and then add additional drops in two other rooms. We provided a Netgear 24 port POE switch so they had the capacity to use all the new cabling plus the existing network cabling that we tested and labeled for them as well.

Becker Family Law
Prosper, TX
February 11, 2021

We installed two Category 6 network cables in their office and tested them so they could use a hardwired connection instead of wifi which they were having issues with.  We are happy to meet new customers and hope they will have us back out when they grow.

Golds Gym HQ
Dallas, TX
February 5, 2021

We provided several solutions for Gold's Gym new corporate offices in Dallas, TX.  The main solution we provide was network cabling with over (130) Cat 6 wire runs.  The suite had an existing two-post rack and ladder rack connected to the wall.  We stripped everything off of it and supplied all-new patch panels and wire management.  We also need to move the rack two inches from the wall to allow our vertical wire manager covers to fasten correctly.  We also installed five flat-screen tvs with wall mount brackets.  Another solution was a bring your own hardware solution, we installed seven customer provided access points for wifi and we installed four customer provided switches into the rack and patched them all in.

Reddy Ice HQ
Dallas, TX
February 3, 2021

This was a great project for us and had many different installation applications.  This Dallas data cabling job consisted of over 400 cables as well as a fiber optic demarc extension.  We installed six projectors, 6 pull-down screens, ten flat screen tv's with one being an 85" flat screen in the board room.  Some of the tv applications had Cat 6 to HDMI convertors as well as VGA extensions to the projectors.  This Reddy Ice Dallas headquarters had over 13 wifi access points installed around the office and in the boardrooms.   

Some of the challenges on this project was flex conduit under the slab that fed several cubicle farms had issues that we had to resolve to get our high count of cables into the cubes as well as some design changes that did not make it onto the floor plan version we were working off of. The customer moved over some existing cubicles from their old building which did not have the correct parts initially when installed so we had to wait until they came in for us to finish our part but we had plenty of AV work to do while we waited a few days to complete the baseboards.

On another note, we found a new restaurant we ate at several times called Don Taco which is pretty good for street tacos, or a large bowl of Caldo de res which is essentially a beef stew with large chunks of vegetables.  Just wanted to share something in the area that we thought was noteworthy to those working around 635 and Preston road area.

Fort Worth Christian School
North Richland Hills, TX
January 18, 2021

In order to get this customer back to their original state before their fiber was dug up, we needed to pull a new fiber between the buildings.  Splicing in an open ditch that needed more digging under the repaired fiber was not a good option especially since the cable was damaged again about one hundred feet away.  We ended up pulling in a new 6 strand 50-micron multi-mode fiber.   The challenge was they needed it before school started the next morning!  Their original fiber was 62.5 micron which not all suppliers carry anymore so we needed to provide the more popular 50-micron fiber.  The only catch was we needed to supply them with 50-micron fiber transceivers for their switches.  We started that morning and worked until about nine o'clock that night.  It was a long day, but they were ready for school the next morning which was also their first day of school back since covid shut them down, so it was imperative we finish it the same day.

USA Engineers
Dallas, TX
January 7, 2021

We ended up terminating and testing this fiber optic cable with customer provided LC unicam connectors. Tested and certified all 6 strands between the floors.  The only obstacle was there was no light in one of the network closets so we used flashlights.

Fruit of the Earth
Fort Worth, TX
December 17, 2020

This was a pretty typical warehouse fiber installation.  The only difficulty we had was that they did not want to use our originally proposed network cabinets but wanted to use a more subtle enclosure that you would not suspect network equipment was in it such as a NEMA type box.  We installed 12 strands of multi-mode fiber with LC connectors.  The solution we provided was end to end including the LC fiber patch cords that would be used to connect to their devices.  All cable tested and certified.

Silver Creek Materials
Fort Worth, TX
December 6, 2020

The solution we implemented was an outdoor loose tube single-mode fiber installation with 6 strands at their Fort Worth TX location.  The fiber cable pull through underground conduit with several ninety degrees turns was very difficult but we got it pulled.  The next step was to strip back the cable and install the fanout kits and then fusion splice on LC pigtails for a pretty solid low loss solution. The project took two full days over a weekend.  Out customer, IT contact was very helpful and easy to work with which makes any project easier even when the physical part is difficult.  We ended up pulling over 2000 feet of underground cable between three buildings, fusion splicing on 24 ends, and certifying all 12 strands with our Owl Certification tool.

This customer was very please with the successful installation.  He told us his boss was very happy because the first vendor was unsuccessful and we made it seem so easy (haha).  The selection process was so long on our original bid that I thought we did not win this so when they called and selected us I was surprised.  They had several vendors come out and walk the site and discuss the solution.  They liked our approach and explanation of how we thought we would implement it along with our plans A, B, and C depending on how difficult the fiber pull was going to be. We are very pleased when a customer is happy with our work.

 

Western Flyer
Midlothian, TX
October 26, 2020

This customer thought they had damaged their fiber between their main building and their repair center down a hill on their property. When we inspected the fiber we noticed they had armored 6 strands multi-mode fiber optic cable running through the conduit. The cable did not appear damaged so we decided to shoot a Visual Fault Locators laser through the strands. The first strand was good and the second strand was very faint on the other end with laser coming through. Fortunately, they had a spare strand with an ST connector on it and we put the VFL on it and it tested good. We plugged both into their media convertor and the link lights came on. After calling the local contact he could see the network switch and said they are back up and running. This was just an issue of a bad strand or possibly connector but the customer did not want to resolve the issue but simply switch to a back up fiber and keep running. They where very happy with our service and gave us a five star review for making it to there location so quickly to get them back up and running.

Enginetech, Inc.
Carrollton, TX
October 26, 2020

We provided the customer with a quote to install approximately 12 wifi access points across their warehouse for use with their bar code scanners while picking orders.  The customer had several problems upon our network site survey and that was they had way too few access points to cover the number of square feet that they had and the second issue is some of the access points were not adopted to the same network as the others.  

Our solution was to pull Category 6 network cable and install new Ubiquiti access points in a diamond grid pattern across their warehouse in Carrollton, TX.  We ended up installing two Ubiquiti POE switches in the ceiling of the warehouse and ran each group of Ap's back to those switches.  Each of the POE switches was directly connected to the data room so if one went down half of the warehouse would still be functional which was better than what they had when we did our initial survey. 

Upon completion, our customer was very happy with the solution and the implementation.  This customer was a pleasure to work with and gave us a great review which we really appreciate.  You can see the review HERE.

We worked here for several days and got to eat at one of our favorite restaurants at the corner of Luna Rd. and Valwood Pkwy which is Tokyo Teriyaki.  It's always crowded but a table usually opens up by the time you place your order.

 

 

Eldorado Country Club Fiber Repair
McKinney, TX
October 21, 2020

When arriving on site we discovered that the customer had Singlemode loose tube 12 strand fiber optic cable between their Toptracer camera system and their clubhouse at the Eldorado County Club in McKinney TX. The customer was thinking they had multi-mode 6 strand tight buffer fiber so this caused a problem for us. We needed to come back the next day with a fan-out kit in order to terminate the loose tube fiber. The difference between loose tube fiber and tight buffer is that you can put a connector directly on the end of a tight buffer cable but on loose tube you need to slide the delicate fibers into a support tube or fan-out kit to give the fiber enough support to terminate a connector to. We installed fan out kits on both ends and certified the all the pairs as good. Customer was happy with our work.

Cliff Price Company
Dallas, TX
September 30, 2020

The solution we provided was comprised of twenty Bose high-end speakers powered by a Crown 1000 Watt amplifier. This overhead music solution will be integrated into there IP phone system so they can page across there speakers as well. There was four different showrooms that we installed speakers in. There was a volume control added to each room to raise or lower the volume of that room depending on the ambient noise. The best part about this project was meeting the employees of Cliff Price Company. Sometimes you just meet a great customer with great people and it just makes everything easier and more enjoyable. This installation went off without many obstacles and the customer seemed very pleased.

Chandler Cabinets
Pilot Point, TX
September 29, 2020

This was an expansion project for there existing system we had previously installed. We installed five more cameras and moved two other ones. Their new office space is a beautiful building and our black exterior and interior cameras blend in very nicely.

Oak Point Fiber Repair
Oak Point, TX
September 17, 2020

The solution we provided was repairing his fiber that he pulled between his barn and his house by fusion splicing new ends on. The issue was he purchased 200 ft LC LC fiber patch cords not meant to be pulled through conduit. These are manufactured to be used in a data closet connecting network switches and are made with very light material never intending for it to be used underground connecting buildings. The issue was all the pre-terminated ends would not make it through the small diameter of the pipe so he cut them all off. We fixed them all but he will have to make dure no one gets into that closet or they could easily damage them. Ideally, he would have called us first or used a solid piece of fiber made to pull underground that would not be so delicate or with ends alreay connected. We get many calls of people trying to pull fiber with perterminated ends.

Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council
Irving, TX
September 15, 2020

This customer had twelve strand multi-mode fiber that needed to be repaired between two floors of there building. The customer was nice enough to help us test on one floor whith us on the other. After we tested we concluded two things contributed to him calling us. The first was one strand did not pass and was corrected by fusion splicing on a new LC multi-mode pigtail the other issue and probably the larger issue was the fibers where not plugged in order on the back of the bulkhead so as he tried to utilize each pair of fiber in the bulkhead they never matched on the other end so he was getting no connection. We placed them in the correct order on both ends so then he plugged in his lc patch cord into port 1,2,3 etc on the front it matched the same port at the other data closet. No real challenges on this one and enjoyed meeting a new customer.

Ariat Distribution Center
Justin, TX
September 11, 2020

Politon, Inc. was chosen to install the computer network at Ariat's new 1,000,000 sq ft facility in Justin, TX just next door to Alliance airport. We have really specialized in large warehouse installations in the last several years especially with the boom in warehouse growth in the DFW area. We installed: - 10 Network Cabinets at 30' high in the ceiling - 78 customer provided access points for Wifi - 12 Cisco Network Switches - 5 Fiber runs completing a fiber ring in their facility - 100 plus Cat 6 network drops - 10 UPS/battery backup This was a large project for us but we have a great team and a great customer.

We are very proud of this project due to the size and scope of the project.

Bonded Lightning Protection Systems Ltd.
Argyle, TX
September 11, 2020

We went on-site to find out the customer needed four strands terminated with LC connectors. We fusion spliced both ends with pre-terminated LC multi-mode pigtails. Once we installed and certified those we moved his connection between his buildings to the newly terminated fiber and then tested his working strands which is he was wondering about. They ended up passing as well. We use a fiber certification tool by Owl Labs which allows us to save and email the documentation of the test. No real challenges for this fiber optic repair in Argyle, TX.

TRW
Lewisville, TX
September 10, 2020

We provided a total network infrastructure solution composed of Cat 6 data cabling, WiFi installation as well as twelve security cameras with an NVR that has 8 TB of storage at there new Lewisville, TX facility. The installation spanned two buildings with WiFi and cameras on the exterior of the building as well as the warehouse and office area. We finished the cabling and WiFi installation then waited for construction to catch up to us so we could install the cameras on the exterior of the building. After the project was complete we helped the customer download the Vivo Cloud app and helped him get logged in to view the cameras with his smartphone. The customer was pleased with the project and asked us if we were interested in building out a new tenant space they are adding on as well. We had two challenges on this project and the first was that we proposed a different brand camera that met their price point but was not NDAA compliant so we used another brand that met these criteria. The second challenge was the general contractor of building the facility who is not associated with my customer's company but was very difficult to work with. It took us a while to figure him out and overcome this obstacle and eventually won him over with think with kindness.

Gangnam Chicken
Denton, TX
September 2, 2020

Arriving on site we found that the previous tenant had removed the patch panel that all the data cabling was terminated on. We could still salvage this cabling and save the customer hundreds of dollars. We put male RJ45 ends on each cable and tested the cable to the outlet in the restaurant. They had approximately 12 Cat 5e network cables that needed to be repaired and tested. The customer also needed a small 16 port switch so we provided that as well. The last step we left to the customer to plug in a patch cord from the switch to there ISP modem once it was installed and they should be up and running. No real issues here just excitement about a new Korean chicken place near the square in Denton, TX.

Kimball Midwest
Arlington, TX
September 1, 2020

This customer wanted to utilize us to install a new IT network throughout there facility. We installed a new IDF in the back of the warehouse with fiber going to an intermediate IDF in the middle of the building. The previous tenant had fiber ran through the warehouse so we were able to move an abandoned fiber cable to the middle IDF and connect back to the main data room. We installed over a dozen WiFi access points through the building, about a dozen pack out station, built out two remote data racks, and the main data room. Assisted the customer by installing all the network switches, SFP's, Battery Backups, routers, and server. The IT dept was unable to fly due to company travel restrictions so we where able to assist in getting the entire facility up and running.

Friendly Chevrolet
Dallas, TX
August 26, 2020

We installed approximately 450' of 6 strands multi-mode armored cable between there main data room and a smaller data closet across the building. The materials for this project were Corning 1U rack mount fiber trays, Corning 6 strand bulkheads with LC duplex connectors. This Dallas fiber optic installation project was installed with very few issues to overcome. All the strands were certified with an Owl Fiber Optic Certification tool which can upload all the test results for the customer's records. The customer was so pleased they are having us come out on another project to install all new cabling in there repair shop.
