Structured Data Cabling Dallas TX

Politon, Inc. specializes in Dallas Data Cabling. We recently had been contacted by AMLI Design District apartments in Dallas TX for their structured data cabling issues which consisted of multimode fiber repair as well as Cat 5e cabling troubleshooting. The end goal was to get a networked device on the 5th-floor working but the customer had no idea where the IDF was or any other data closets. She could show us the port on the patch panel the device was plugged into so that's where we started. The first thing we did was to utilize our Fluke MicroScanner2 Cable Analyzer. There are two reasons this was our first tool to use. First, we knew it would show us if a network switch was on the other end of the scanner and secondly it would show us how far it is to the switch. Armed with these two pieces of information we know that this port of the patch panel went to a closet 37 feet away which we quickly discovered. After tracing this cable to a network switch we found that the switch was fed by a Fiber to Ethernet media converter. The ethernet port was defective in the downstairs MDF thus causing the connection not to work. Replacing this media converter on one end resolved the issue and allowed the upstairs switch to have internet access again. So long story short a somewhat simple problem of a device not working led us on a path from copper, to fiber and back to copper again to the core network switch to come to a solid resolution of the issue.
