Structured Cabling Installation

Types of Networks Serviced:

Copper-based Networks (Cat5e, Cat6, Cat 6a and Cat 7)

Office computers, printers, CC machines, and many other office IP endpoints typically are connected with a copper network. Copper-based networks are the most common and economical. There are several varieties in cable types. Customer who is going to need a higher data speed through there network is going to need a more robust cable with higher throughput speeds such as the Cat 6 or Cat6a cable but for most business, the Cat 5e will work. Our technicians can install a new network or make changes to an existing one. Politon works to create a custom tailored solution for each individual client.
Fiber-Optic Networks (Singlemode, Multimode, 10 Gig)
Fiber-optic networks have the ability to overcome challenges that traditional copper networks cannot. Distance and EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) from large machinery can affect copper networks but not fiber since it is light inside of the glass as opposed to electricity in a copper strand. Distance is another factor that sets its self apart from copper. Copper networks maximum distance is about 330 feet as opposed to single mode fiber which can travel for miles. There multiple types of fiber cable for different applications as well as connections. Politon has been installing Fiber Optic Networks since 2009 and can help integrate your fiber and copper networks. We have Certified Fiber Optic Technicians (CFOT) as well as Certifid Fiber Optic Specialist in Testing & Maintenance (CFOS/T) on staff that have been trained by the The Fiber Optic Association, Inc.

Recent Cabling Jobs

Acme Truck Line, Inc.

We went on-site to troubleshoot the network cabling at this Cedar Hill, TX facility. When we arrived we discovered several problems with why the TVs would not get a network connection. There was a few TVs that had there network connection plugged into the telephone jack so that was an easy solution. The second issue was the other two TVs were plugged into a switch with no uplink to the internet. We tested there Cat6 cable as good just to be sure the cabling would work. Then we plugged the connection into there main switch and the TVs pulled an ip address. We pulled up the weather channel on each tv to prove out our troubleshooting. Closed out the job with our customer and to please call us if they have any issues.

Cat6 Network Rack

We went on-site and determined this was basically two network cabling projects. The easier project was the Cat 6 cabling that would be running to the IDF cabinet at one end of the building. This IDF was connected back to the main data room with OM3 multimode fiber optic cabling. The more difficult part of the project was the cabling that ran to the main data room. There was an existing data rack that we had to work around and ultimately help the customer move out of the data room after moving all of his network gear into the new rack. We completely built out the new data rack with all of the customer's new and existing hardware.

One of the challenges of this project was our lead tech getting vertigo from a previous ear infection that caused him to be out of work for over a month. We really missed him on this project and it caused us to ask for an additional week to complete the project. Our customers where very gracious and kind to our timeline and we completed the project on our second target date.

On this project we installed over 150 Cat 6 cables, a 10G 6 strand Multimode fiber optic cable, one data rack and one network cablinet.

Cable Termination

We installed Cat6 data cabling to all of there new offices in Arlington, TX. The customer wanted to reuse there own data rack which posed a few challenges since they did not have all the nuts and bolts so we improvised until we got them. This is usually the case when we have customers reuse equipment they had but we are happy to oblige and make the best of it. We installed ladder racking to the wall and anchored the base of the rack to the concrete so it should never move.

The materials we used where Leviton 48 Port Cat 6 patch panels, Leviton Extreme Cat 6 jacks, Leviton 2U front back wire managers and faceplates. We also provided the customer with all the patch cords for the network rack as well as the work station. Another task we performed was a demarc extension for there network circuit which was in a common closet down the hallway. We pulled two Cat6 cables to take care of there current and any future demarc needs to there suite.
