The Cisco Networking Academy Program's Fundamentals of Voice and Data Cabling curriculum rolled out in July 2002. The course is sponsored by Panduit, a leading provider of voice and data cabling equipment. The Companion Guide complements the Fundamentals of Voice and Data Cabling Web-based course as do the Lab Companion and Engineering Journal and Workbook from Cisco Press. The course and companion materials provide an introduction to the physical aspects of voice and data network cabling and installation. This book offers the review questions and exercises focus on cabling issues related to data and voice connections. It will help students learn how to read network design documentation, set up part lists and purchase components, pull and mount cable, choose wiring closets, install jacks, and perform cable testing. Students will also develop skills in documentation, design, cable management, and troubleshooting installation issues, as well as laboratory and on-the-job safety. The hands-on approach and comprehensive coverage of topics in the Companion Guide are part of a unique learning package that helps students prepare for the BICSI Registered Certified Installer, Level 1 exam.
