Communications Cabling

Estimates, installation, and maintenance of cabling and voice, video, and data outlets. Consultation, assistance, and management of the following are coordinated through this service:

  • category-6A UTP systems
  • coaxial cabling systems
  • multi-mode and single-mode fiber optic systems
  • all related pathway (riser and horizontal for intra- and inter- building)
  • construction and renovation projects managed by Facilities Management & Campus Services (FMCS) and Campus Design and Facility Development (CDFD)

Communication outlets are now universal and can be installed for either service. If you anticipate a future need for multiple outlets on the same faceplate, we recommend installing at the same time to reduce costs and minimize disruption.
