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.

Fort Worth, TX

The main portion of this project was connecting the two office spaces through data cabling allowing for an extension of the network used. This was especially difficult because one office space was on the 6th floor and the other was on the 5th floor of the neighboring building. Proving to be an even harder challenge as the pipes between the building had been busted and required a bit of ingenuity to allow for proper functionality. Once we were able to move and connect the cabling to each building, it was discovered that inside the office space the old tenant had pulled the data cabling and rebuilt walls around them. In an effort to utilize the old cabling we had to dig out the old cabling and reconfigure them to the new floor plan. To allow for a more enjoyable work-life experience, we added new additions to the conference and training room. These included adding AV cables that connected the HDMI cables from the TVs to an HDMI plate below the TV, and a CAT-6 to HDMI extension data cable. This allowed employees easy access when connecting laptops to the screens during important presentations. We also revamped the entire data rack and installed all the data cabling for the wifi and installed wifi access points. With 140 total cables, our team was able to completely build an entirely new office space.

Crossroads, TX

We installed OM3 multi-mode fiber to two new cottages to bring internet connectivity as well as a connection to the networked fire panels. The customer was very pleased to add these two new buildings to their existing fiber ring around their campus. We essentially had to cut the existing ring and incorporate two new buildings into the ring by pulling fiber to them and back-feeding the connection from the far building to the return portion of the campus loop. All new fiber was certified and staged for their network administrator to come out and plug in his equipment.

Dallas, TX

H Betti Industries in Dallas, Texas, was having some problems with their access points. Politon worked with the IT Support team to identify four out of six access points that were not working. Fortunately, the IT Support team had shipped four replacements which we installed. At the end of the day, all six access points were working as expected.

Burleson, TX

The Saddle Creek South location in Burleson, Texas, requested an Ethernet drop to a time clock outside the central office. We started running a cable from cabinet 9 which is mounted 35 feet up on a post. From there, we went across the girders and inside the 40-foot-high walls of the central office. After terminating and testing the cable, we mounted the time clock which worked perfectly.

Burleson, TX

The Saddle Creek South location in Burleson, Texas, contacted us to install two Ethernet drops in the guard shack. Fortunately, Politon had already run fiber to the guard shack and installed a switch, making the job easier. After finding a path from the switch to the guard's desk, we routed, terminated, and tested both cables. Everything worked properly.
