Cat 6 Installation in Birmingham

TNS were contacted by a Birmingham based food company to validate a 3rd party audit.

Following this audit numerous issues were found to be the cause of a malfunctioning network.

  • Data cable tied to incoming 3 phase leads
  • Transmission cable in poor health (kinks, split sheaths)
  • Internal grade cable running externally across the building roof

After carrying out detailed analysis of all problems faced and the client’s requirements, TNS proposed the installation of a Draka Cat6 solution.

This proposition was accepted, allowing TNS engineers to get to work

The task involved:

  • Installation of a Draka Cat6 solution throughout the main building
  • Fitting an external OM3 CST grade fibre from the Comms Room to remote offices
  • Installation of 18 data points, connected to Comms Room
  • Repositioning of cabinets and servers
  • Installation of a further 88 data points
  • Installation and fusion splicing of a fibre optic link
  • Re-patching the network
  • Health checks on all hardware equipment

Following this successful CAT6 installation into a Birmingham based food company, TNS showcased their ability to identify existing problems, produce a remedial action plan and carry out all tasks in a professional manner.
