For technician level courses in telecommunications cabling. This fully updated wiring reference reflects the latest NEC wiring standards. Students and future telecommunications installers should find the discussion on standardization in setting methods for identifying and labeling useful. The suggested standards should help in the establishment of labeling standards for cabling, patch panels, wiring closets, floor locations, and equipment. Students should find the topic on cabling systems, supports and test hardware, proper installation techniques and wire and fiber characteristics useful in planning of a cabling system. Offers students guidelines for planning, installation, and testing of the cabling system.
