Develop the skills you need to design and build a reliable, cost-effective cabling infrastructure

Fully updated for the growing demand of fiber optics for large-scale communications networks and telecommunication standards, this new edition is organized into two parts. Part I covers LAN Networks and Cabling Systems offers comprehensive coverage on current cabling methodologies and is updated to the latest industry standards. Part II addresses Fiber-Optic Cabling and Components probes deeper into fiber optics, and can be used to prepare for the Fiber Optics Installer (FOI) and/or Fiber Optics Technician (FOT) certifications, two of the Electronic Technician's Association's leading certifications.

  • Explains why cutting corners is a bad idea
  • Walks you through the obstacles to high-speed data transfer
  • Encourages you to follow the golden rules of cabling

This new edition is the only book you need for current cabling methodologies and standards.

or vertical drops without having to move existing cable? The most expensive part of your system will be the labor costs associated with the installation. Does the system require special tools to install, or does it snap together in a modular fashion? Telecommunications Rooms, Enclosures, and Equipment Rooms The telecommunications room or enclosure is where your network devices are aggregated into switches. These switches route the signals from these devices to the equipment room where servers

commercial buildings, but not always. Your building maintenance folks should know for sure, as will the company that installed the HVAC. If it isn’t a plenum space, then you don’t have to spend the extra for plenum-rated cable. Myth #2: There are plenum cables and PVC cables. ​ ​The wording here is nothing but sloppy use of terminology, but it results in the widespread notion that plenum cables don’t use polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in their construction and that nonplenum cables are all PVC. In

are important as they relate to crosstalk—for example, AXT (alien crosstalk) to express the interaction between cables in a cable bundle. Although crosstalk is important in all technologies, faster technologies such as 1000Base-T and 10GBase-T are more sensitive to it because they use all four pairs in parallel for transmission. All these requirements are built into the current version of the standard, ANSI/TIA-568-C. Many transmission requirements are expressed as mathematical formulas. For the

Telecommunications Many cabling and data products certified by the United States National Electrical Code (NEC) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) are also certified by the CSA. Cables manufactured for use in the United States are often marked with the CSA electrical and flame-test ratings as well as the U.S. ratings, if they can be used in Canada. CSA International is on the Internet at www.csa.ca. IP/MPLS Forum (ATM Forum) Started in 1991, the ATM Forum is an international, nonprofit
