Educational Computer Network Wiring
These estimates assume installation in steel frame interior walls and suspended ceilings before drywall and ceiling finish are installed. All cable runs terminate to either a telephone closet or a server room. All runs are to a punch block at both the distribution end and central interconnect. Underground cable runs assume communications duct has been installed by others. Central interconnect locations are usually a classroom located near or in a cluster of classroom buildings. One-hundred-pair cable is suitable for 12 network connections with 2 spares.
Campus network wiring pulled in underground communications duct from a central interconnection location to a distribution point. Based on a 1,000' cable run.
