Ethernet Cables

When running ethernet cables in the computer rooms, please:
  • Use only cables labeled CAT5E, CAT5e, or CAT6. Remove and dispose of any cables only labeled CAT5.
  • Label both ends of the cable.
  • Use the new cable trays in W221.
  • Remove coils in cable before feeding through trays.
  • Coil and cable-tie any slack on top of the rack.
  • If you use a splice block, use the same color on both sides.
  • Don't cut corners. If a cable isn't quite long enough for a clean run, get a longer cable.
  • In summary, use common sense =). When in doubt, open a service ticket and/or ask Charlie.
