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

Their current technology was originally located on multiple different floors, but Politon helped to connect each of these locations for greater efficiency. Politon added two post data rack from the MDF to the cubicles located on the fifth floor, which took about 200 CAT-6 data drops. They then added multimodal fiber between the new data room with the new post rack and the MDF and proceeded to create a new IDF on a different floor to better feed connections to future users. Politon also assisted with cabling for security purposes by pulling cables from eight different access points and POE cameras around the suite in hopes of providing optimal assistance. By the end of the project, the insurance company was highly satisfied with the work done by Politon and were delighted to consider themselves a customer of their company.

Garland, TX

The company’s MDF was based on the second floor but needed fiber extension to the IDF on the first floor. Thus, Politon completed this extension in addition to installing a fiber tray on both sides using an OM-3 multimode 6-strand fiber, which was also certified with a Owl Fiber Certification tool between both floors. They also pulled 6 CAT-6 data runs from the second-floor MDF closet to the IT help desk, which helped to provide a hardwire wifi connection between both areas. Throughout the entirety of this project, Politon did not face any major challenges in relation to the installation.

McKinney, TX

They first ran multimodal fiber to the first floor, where they had just installed a new suite. Politon made sure that all their offices had data cable by installing a network cable that increases available fiber connections. Morrow Renewables also gave Politon their network switch to install in this location, where Politon also put in a new battery that they provided for the customer. The key to this situation was a turn-key tabling solution, where Politon did everything to extend the entire network down to the suite. Everything was working perfectly once Politon fired everything up. From there, Politon installed a customer-provided wifi access point in the center and the ceiling of their main office, which would allow for greater wifi coverage from all locations of the facility. Whether customers were on the first floor or the third floor, everyone would have the same wifi network thanks to the OM-3 strand multimodal fiber that Politon installed. By the end of the project, Morrow Renewables was extremely satisfied with the work completed by Politon.

Dallas, TX

In order to secure their Wi-Fi connection, we added seven new Wi-Fi access points that allow their handheld RF guns to be used efficiently anywhere in the warehouse. Before the day was complete, we also installed a dual network drop to accommodate a new workstation and provided a sixteen-port network switch that was uplinked to all the new Wi-Fi access points.

Continental Electronics Corporation(CEC) is the premier manufacturer of advanced radio frequency and broadcast transmission. They have completed various projects and are among the leading competitors in high-power transmitters. In fact, CEC very own high-power transmitters are used by the Navy forces around the globe to communicate with submarine fleets as well as NASA to communicate with spacecraft. While on their campus our team pulled six stands of multimode armored fiber across the building. In order to do this we drilled holes in the wall to allow for the fiber to easily reach the opposite side of the campus. However, while running the cables our team found asbestosis in the older parts of the building. This added an unforeseen obstacle but our team worked tirelessly to work around the situation. By the end of this project, both Continental Electronics corporations was happy to have a new area of their department fully operational with their very own network switch.

Coppell, TX

Long-time customer Ariat Boot Distribution is expanding to a new warehouse in Coppell, Texas. The building that they are expanding to was previously utilized by a tenant and needed some upgrades in order to keep up with the growing company. The warehouse had some previously existing data cabinets around the warehouse. Our team was called in to run fibers and install network switches to the existing cabinets in the main data room. In order to maximize the connections and communications between employees in the warehouses, we installed and plugged in eight wifi access points into the network switch around the offices and warehouse. In order to maintain security, we installed four cameras to monitor aisles. Because this warehouse was previously occupied, we needed to test each of the thirty existing cables in the offices to provide utmost proficiency in our customers' new office. Our customer was pleased with the work of our team, and we discussed coming back for future projects.
