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.

Recent Data Cabling Installation 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.
