Global Com was contracted to install a multi-floor fiber backbone cable infrastructure for the Department of Commerce consisting of (34) backbone cables up to 1,990 ft. in length. This project supported SIPR and JWICS network connectivity. Global Com provided custom cable for this installation to distinguish the pathways based on the networks they support. This project was implemented and completed ahead of schedule. Additionally, small hinged cabinets were installed within suites to support the fiber installation to users throughout the headquarters building.
Utilizing existing pathways, Global Com was able to keep the integrity of this historic facility intact. Pathways and cables were clearly marked to prevent demolition crews from removing or damaging this critical infrastructure.
Design recommendations by GCI prior to the start of the project streamlined the installation of the cabinets and cabling while project location was actively under construction. Project Scope included Network Design.
The solution provided:
•Installation of (34) multi-strand fiber backbones
•Installation of (37) 1 RU Fiber Housings
•Provided (76) copper backbone cables
•Testing (300+) strands of fiber to EIA/TIA requirements
•Professional Program Management Support
Standards and Best Practices were implemented.
