5 IT Services Network Infrastructure Specification Briefing Document for Project Managers and Contractors 1. External Services 1.1 Ducts for ICT External ducts for fibre optic and other connections between buildings shall be 100mm diameter twin walled rigid duct, externally ribbed with a smooth interior. Ducts used for data and telecoms services must be separate from ducts used for other services. Main arterial routes (aka the superhighway ) on the Heslington West campus consist of 6No. 100mm diameter ducts shared with the Directorate of Facilities Management. On the Campus Utilities Corridor (CUC) and on the Heslington East campus itself an independent ICT duct network has been installed. This infrastructure uses fewer physical ducts as the new campus will employ blown fibre or blown cable technology with a minimum of 7No subducts or microducts throughout. Inter-building links or feeds to buildings from arterial routes should consist of a minimum of 2No. 100mm ICT ducts. All ducts must be provided with polypropylene draw ropes to facilitate pulling additional cables, and when used for this purpose, draw ropes shall be replaced. Each building must have a minimum of 2No diverse external duct routes to other buildings to allow for resilience. Where a building has only one wiring centre, the duct systems may both terminate in that wiring centre. Otherwise, they should terminate in different wiring centres. Data connections between buildings must be made using fibre optic cables. Copper cables are not permitted between buildings. 1.2 Manhole covers and chambers Manhole covers over splicing or access chambers shall be robust and meet any requirements laid down by the University s Head of Estates Development. The specification of covers should be in accordance with BS EN 124:1994. Access chambers and associated hardware shall conform to the BT Openreach LN550 specification. Access chambers for data ducts should be independent of access chambers for other services, such as power, heating, BMS systems, water, control cabling, etc. Network Infrastructure Specification v

6 2. Wiring Centres 2.1 Connectivity Wiring centres, other than satellite wiring centres (see below) by prior agreement with IT Services, must be provided with at least two separate routes for connections to other wiring centres, in order to provide resilience. Note that this requires each building has a minimum of two duct routes to other buildings. 2.2 Physical access Wiring centre rooms must be secure (lockable), with standard plant-room key (Yale E305 D17 on Heslington West, and Kaba GG on Heslington East). Key issue shall be restricted to IT Services, Telephony, and Estates Services. Access must be available to authorised IT Services staff, including out-of-hours (this may require consideration of access route, alarms, etc). Wiring centres should be located so that access is from indoor public areas rather than departmental areas which may be closed off. Access to staff other than IT Services and Telephony is prohibited. 2.3 Dimensions New wiring centres shall be capable of accommodating a minimum of three racks, two reserved for IT Services, and one for Facilities Management. Access space is required of a minimum of 1000mm to front and rear, and 1000mm to at least one side. See diagram in Appendix 2. Where possible power and data should be delivered to racks at high level on suitable tray or basket work. The room must not be used for storage or other purposes unrelated to the delivery of IT services. 2.4 Power Each rack in a wiring centre requires a minimum of 1No. wall-mounted switched IEC A (2P+E) outlets from a dedicated mains supply. Each wiring centre requires a minimum of 1No. 13A TSSO for general small power. 2.5 Environmental control Adequate cooling/ventilation must be provided to maintain the room temperature below 26 C based on a maximum thermal load of 3kW in a primary wiring centre or 1kW for subsidiary wiring centres. A subsidiary or satellite wiring centre is one which is sited in a satellite building and services 24 or fewer rooms, with no onward feeds to other centres. Certain other building services must be excluded from wiring centres. These include but are not limited to water supplies, drains (including drain pipes), heating pipes. There must be no water or liquid pathway, sources and outlets in the ceiling above the rack. This includes waste water pipes, chilled water pipes, hot water pipes, sewer pipes, and rain water down pipes. Network Infrastructure Specification v

7 Wiring centres must be fitted out with an appropriate floor covering, such as antistatic vinyl or tiles, or in certain cases, painted concrete. Carpet and carpet tiles are not acceptable. 3. Data Racks and Cabinets 3.1 Rack specification The preferred rack type for wiring centres is the Dataracks Elite 303 Cabinet range. Alternative products may only be installed with the agreement of IT Services. Racks must be standard 19" type, 42U high (where ceiling height allows), 600mm wide x 850mm deep. In certain locations in older wiring centres, the racks should be 850mm wide by 850mm deep, to allow sufficient space for cable management at the sides. Wall-mounted data cabinets must not be used on any new builds as this precludes the installation of IP telephony switches, UPSs, routers etc. Each rack must be fitted with standard locks (preferably key no. EK333, but 250 or are acceptable), and mesh (ventilated) doors. Each rack must be provided with a plinth at the base. In exceptional cases, racks may be fitted with suitably-rated levelling feet (but not casters) by prior agreement with Computing Service. 3.2 Rack PDUs Each rack must be fitted with a 12-way non-switched power distribution unit fitted with standard 3-pin UK sockets to BS1363, mounted vertically at the rear. Where a UPS is present in the wiring centre, an additional non-switched PDU with IEC 320 C13 socket connectors must be fitted to each rack (see section 2.4 above). Each rack must be provided with earth bonding, which must be installed so as to comply with the requirements of any shielded cable which may be installed, and of IET (formerly IEE) Wiring Regulations. Where more than one rack is present, they must be bolted together ( bayed ). 3.3 Cable Management Each rack should be internally fitted with two cable trays running vertically, and positioned on each side, slightly to the rear of the centre line. The front rails must be mounted back 10cm from the door to allow clearance for patch cables. Dataracks cabinets must be supplied with cable management in the form of 20No. Elite jumper rings for a 42U cabinet. Wiring density. As a guideline no more than 360 outlets should typically be terminated in a cabinet. Network Infrastructure Specification v

8 3.4 Equipment Equipment which is not owned/managed by IT Services must not be placed in datacomms racks without prior consultation with Computing Service. Such equipment might include fibre terminations and equipment forming part of the Security Services infrastructure (e.g. CCTV equipment and access control equipment), or building management systems (BMS) and should be placed in a dedicated Facilities Management rack. Equipment which is not inherently of a rack-mounting design must be mounted on a suitable rackmount shelf, along with any associated low-voltage power supplies. Equipment and power supplies must not be left lying in the bottom of any rack, or in contact with any cables. Any electrical equipment placed in the rack must have a clearly visible sticker showing the date of installation or most recent inspection for electrical safety, and must be periodically safety tested in accordance with the University s Health Safety and Welfare Policy and the University s Code of Practice on Electrical Safety. 4. Horizontal Wiring and Patch Panels 4.1 General Wiring from patch panel to room outlet or equivalent ( horizontal wiring ) shall be to EIA/TIA 568 standard, Category 6A. Wiring runs must be 90m or less, and the pairs must be wired to the ANSI/TIA T568B convention. However, by specific arrangement with IT Services only, additions to some older installations may be made to Category 5e or better. All wiring installations must be supported by a manufacturer s Performance Warranty or equivalent, valid for a minimum of 20 years, and documentary evidence in the form of the manufacturer s certificate for the specific installation must be provided in evidence of this. The cable sheath must be low smoke zero-halogen (LS0H) type. Wiring must not have splices or in-line connectors other than those integral to the patch panel and the room outlet. All work, including cable or outlet rework, trunking or containment replacement, and any other work that involves adding, repairing or moving outlets or their cabling must be tested according to the approved regime and standards (See Section 12). Approved cabling systems are listed in Appendix 3. Installers may not mix and match between different cabling systems. Alternative products not on the list may only be installed by prior agreement with IT Services. 4.2 Containment Horizontal wiring runs shall be in wire trays within equipment rooms, risers, ceiling voids, and loft spaces. In under-floor spaces, where outlets are to be in floor boxes, galvanised sheet trays may be used instead of wire trays (see Section 7) to facilitate fitting flexible conduit. Where wiring runs are not in such spaces they shall be enclosed in Network Infrastructure Specification v

9 plastic trunking on the surface of a wall. In some locations, mini-trunking may require painting to be discrete and/or to avoid reflections. Cable bundles should be secured with Velcro cable ties. Dado trunking, back boxes and floor boxes must be specified to have sufficient depth to accommodate the bending radius of Category 6A cable from any of the approved cabling systems listed in Appendix 3. When installing cable in new containment or conduit the contractor should allow for 50% future expansion. However, this requirement may be relaxed in the case of flexible conduit attached to a floorbox, if by prior agreement with IT Services. 4.3 Patch panels and in-rack cabling Wiring in equipment racks must be fitted to allow sufficient slack for minor repositioning of panels when required. Large bundles should be fitted with socks. Data patch panels must be high-density, i.e. 24 sockets per 1U height. Each panel must be correctly earthed to the manufacturer s specification. Patch panels must be installed with socket numbers in numerical order from left to right. Panels must be installed within racks with ground floor wiring at the top, then first floor, second floor, etc further down, in order. 5. Cable and Outlet Labelling 5.1 Cable Labelling External cables should be tagged at each end and in each access chamber using Critchley cable markers according to the following convention: Department code (University four digit code), Space character, Endpoint identification (two building codes up to 7 characters each, separated by a hyphen), Space character, Sequence number (one digit) Example 1: 0087 A/D-ATB 1 (IT Services cable 1 running between Alcuin College D block and Alcuin Teaching Block) Example 2: 0087 GBA/A2- GSH/SUB 1 (Computing Service cable 1, running between Goodricke College Baker Court block A2 and Goodricke College Sheldon Court Substation) Commonly used departmental codes are: 0006 Computer Science 0087 IT Services Network Infrastructure Specification v

10 0238 Estates Services 0246 Security Services 0244 Telephony 0384 TFTV 5.2 Outlet Labelling Rooms must be allocated their final numbers before labelling data outlets or patch panels. Outlets and patch panels must not be labelled with interim numbers which may be indicated on architect s plans prior to completion of building works. By convention the University numbers rooms with three digits of which the first is the floor number e.g. room A/D/131 is located on the first floor of Alcuin College D block. All building codes will be supplied by the University. Room outlets must be labelled according to the following code, with the elements separated by slashes / (except the outlet number, which must be separated by a dash): building code (e.g. 'A/D' for Alcuin College D block) wiring centre number (e.g. 1 for Wiring Centre 1 in the building) room number outlet number within the room e.g. A/D/2/064-1 for the first socket in room A/D064; that is room 64 on the ground floor of Alcuin College D block, which is fed from Wiring Centre 2 in that building. Patch panel sockets must be labelled to match, although only the room number and outlet number are required, e.g. the socket on the panel matching the above room example should be labelled Room outlets shall be clearly labelled with black lettering in a plain typeface on a white background, and the lettering shall be no less than 3mm high (e.g. 12 point Helvetica). Patch panel ports shall be clearly labelled with black lettering in a plain typeface on a white background, and the lettering shall be no less than 3mm high (e.g. 12 point Helvetica). 6. Analogue telephony infrastructure cabling 6.1 Pair identification Contractors are required to install telephone cabling conforming to the cable distribution scheme already existing within the University. Telephony Section will issue Building Distribution Frame (BDF) pair numbers and these should be printed on the first and last Krone strip (together with the building name) on the cabling installed on the BDP. Network Infrastructure Specification v

11 6.2 Multipair specification The BDF to BDP (Building Distribution Point) external voice multipair cabling must conform to the CW1308 Internal/external cabling specification and will contain at least one pair of wires for each required voice extension, plus at least 50% spare capacity. The pair content will be specified by Telephony Section prior to installation along with any requirement for additional vertical frames (ATA108A) in the PABX room. Only Krone 237A 10 pair IDC modules should be used for termination of multicore cables. 6.3 Jumpering Jumpering schedules will be issued by Telephony Section. Prior to patching, engineers should plug into the TJF (equipment side) and dial extension 1014 to ensure they are disconnecting/connecting the correct extension. All patching on the BDF/TJF (Test Jack Frame) should be jumper wire CW1109 (blue/yellow) and all cable pair terminations will be by insulation displacement connection method (IDC). 6.4 Cable installation All cabling should be installed in existing ducting, which may result in suppliers installing new cables alongside existing, live, telephone and data cables. Installers bear full responsibility for any damage caused by the installation of new cables. The installer will also be liable for any damage to University grounds and be responsible for the protection of all cabling and trunking/conduit installed, up to the ready for service date. Suppliers should satisfy themselves that any existing ducts and cable chambers are suitable for use in the planned cable scheme. All voice cabling within University buildings is to be installed to the highest standards, with due regards to the aesthetics of the building, and with the approval of Telephony Section. 6.5 Building Distribution Points Each building or block should be provided with its own Building Distribution Point (BDP). Each BDP should be treated as a flexibility point requiring separate terminations for incoming and outgoing cables. A drop cable should be installed from the BDP (which should be installed immediately behind the wiring cabinet) to the wiring cabinet and a voice patch panel (25 or 50 port) should be installed in the cabinet as per Appendix 1 (Example rack layout). Alarm, disabled refuge and lift lines should be connected directly to the BDP and not the patch panel in the cabinet (where they may be accidentally disconnected). Buildings with several wiring centres should have Floor Distribution Points (FDP) as agreed with Telephony Section. Cabling to alarm panels should have a BT socket test point concealed in the terminating box. A tail should then be connected from the terminating box to the alarm panel. Network Infrastructure Specification v

12 6.6 Documentation A cabling installation diagram should be forwarded to Telephony Section on completion of the installation and before sign off. 7. Data Outlet Distribution Note that IT Services always fit RJ45 outlets in pairs. 7.1 Office areas Each workstation location in office space should have at least 4No RJ45 data outlets. Compliance with EIA/TIA 568B or IEC requires that a minimum of 2No outlets be provided at each work area. In multiple-occupancy offices, compliance may require an allowance for alternative workstation positions, for example by fitting sockets on opposite walls, not just along one wall. Note that no patch cable may be longer than 5m, and cannot be routed where it could constitute an obstruction, a trip hazard or other health and safety hazard. 7.2 Open areas Open areas should have a minimum of 2No RJ45 data outlet per 10 square metres of floor space, to allow for printers, copiers, and telephony equipment, with a minimum of four RJ45 outlets in each area. These should be distributed around the area in pairs. In seminar and meeting rooms, sufficient sockets must be installed to service a telephone, audio-visual equipment such as a managed PC, control panel, a streaming device, a projector, and a visiting laptop. This means a minimum of six sockets at convenient locations at the front, two additional sockets typically mounted in the ceiling, and two sockets at the rear. 7.3 Residential areas Study bedrooms should have a minimum of 2No RJ45 outlets per occupant. These outlets should be presented at sufficiently high level to avoid damage from beds or other furniture being pushed against them. They should also be positioned close to mains power sockets likely to be used for IT equipment and in such a way as to reduce the possibility of long patch leads trailing across the room. Tutor rooms, accessible rooms, Dean s flats, staff flats, and any other room that would be large enough for two or more occupants if re-purposed (ie larger than 12m 2 ) shall be provided with at least two sets of outlets, ideally on opposite walls. Additional dual high level wall sockets for wireless access points shall be fitted in kitchens and at strategic positions in corridors. See Section 7.5 below and Appendix Plant rooms and storage rooms Plant rooms require at least one data outlet for each item of networked BMS equipment, plus at least one spare, and always fitted in pairs. BMS equipment must not be connected Network Infrastructure Specification v

13 via local Ethernet switches. Plant rooms in buildings which are not otherwise provided with network connectivity shall in addition require a fibre-optic feed from a nearby wiring centre, and a suitable mounting for a network switch. Storage rooms which are larger than 4m 2 require one dual outlet. 7.5 ALL areas Additional dual high level wall sockets for wireless access points will be required, usually either just below ceiling height, or in locations with very high ceilings at a height of 2500mm. See Appendix Patch Cables and Outlet Patching Patch cables must be constructed from stranded cable to Cat 6A or Cat.5e standard as required, wired to the T568B convention. Patch cables must be no more than 5m long in any circumstance. Patch cables should not have "boots" but should have integral strain reliefs. The best type is one moulded with integral strain relief. When supplied by contractors, patch cables must conform to the local colour code. Brown and pink are reserved for Telephony. Purple and black have special significance and are reserved. Grey and white should not be used in wiring centres. Contractors are not permitted to patch room outlets to active equipment. Patching may only be carried out by IT Services Network Group or Technical Services Group staff. IT Services will not patch any connections until they have received satisfactory test results (See Section 12). 9. Floor boxes Academic buildings will have raised access floors with a minimum of 180mm underfloor clearance to allow for cable trays and floor boxes. Floor boxes must have sufficient depth to allow for the bending radius of Category 6A cable. In buildings fitted with floor boxes in floor panels, the boxes must be wired with sufficient cable to allow 3m flexibility in positioning in any direction. However, there must not be additional splices or inline connectors between floor box and patch panel. Boxes must be fitted with flexible conduit between the box and the nearest cable tray. So-called consolidation points are not allowed. Network Infrastructure Specification v

14 10. Fibre connections 10.1 Inter building connectivity Unless otherwise specified by IT Services, connections between buildings must be made with single-mode fibre optic cable, of 8/125 or 9/125 micron size, to OS1 specification. Unless otherwise specified fibre interconnections shall comprise 24 cores. Corrugated Steel Tape (CST) armoured cable is preferred for external applications on Heslington West campus Blown fibre Blown fibre has been specified for external and internal applications on the Heslington East campus. Emtelle s Fibreflow range is the preferred product (see Appendix 4 for further information). The following requirements for blown fibre installations should be noted: fibre bundles should have the capability to be onward blown in long route lengths fibre bundles should be capable of being removed after a period of use and reused in other areas of campus fibres in the fibre bundles should be encapsulated in a resin fibre bundles should be installed using a blowing machine with an electronic buckle detector which monitors the fibre s progress Installers must be a registered Emtelle installer for both minicable and fibre bundle installations Long haul and/or high fibre count applications For these applications Emtelle s heavy duty 14/10mm microducts are to be used, tie wrapped in a 7 way bundle. Each microduct has a different colour blue, orange, green, yellow, purple, white, and red. The Computing Service has adopted a colour coding convention for the use of microducts and must be consulted before the blowing of fibre takes place. The microducts are to be used in conjunction with blown fibre mini cables, typically 48 cores Campus connections For inter-building connections on campus, such as those on Cluster 1, the 7 way Direct Install product is to be installed in the site IT duct infrastructure. This product employs 5/3.5mm microducts, each of which can be populated with a single Microcable Fibre Unit containing 12 cores. The LFH variant of the product is to be used where the cable runs traverses a building internally Fibre within buildings Interconnects between multiple wiring centres serving the same building should also be made with single-mode fibre optic cable, of 8/125 or 9/125 micron size, to OS1 specification. Network Infrastructure Specification v

15 In special cases where multi-mode fibre optic cable is required, this must be of 50/125 micron size (not 8/125, 9/125 or 62.5/125), to OM3 laser-optimised specification Terminations Fibre optic cables for external connections should be terminated in metal patch panel boxes fitted with duplex LC connectors. The patch panel boxes should be 1U high and accommodate 24 duplex connectors (48 fibres). The rear cable entries should be slotted to permit removal of the cable without the need to cut and re-terminate it. Singlemode and multimode terminations should not be mixed on the same 1U panel. Note that LC pairs should be terminated as crossovers. For example, fibre 1 at one end should connect to fibre 2 at the other, fibre 2 connects to fibre 1, fibre 3 to fibre 4 etc. This is because standard duplex fibre patch leads are always crossovers, and every fibre link requires an odd number of crossovers to function correctly. Fibre optic cables for internal connections may be terminated either in metal patch panel boxes or pre-terminated cassette based solutions e.g Hellerman Tyton Rapidnet single mode 12-fibre LC assembly (RNFSMPxxx). Fibre optic panels fitted in data racks or wall cabinets shall be fitted at the bottom of the rack. Fibre optic panels shall be labelled with the number of cores, the type of cable (singlemode or multimode), and the source and destination. For example, 24-core singlemode Alcuin to Computing Service. Where fibre optic wall or floor outlets are provided in offices or laboratories, they must be cabled using 50/125 OM3 laser optimised multimode cable (normally duplex cable) and terminated at the outlet using LC duplex connectors on 25mm x 50mm module inserts. The cable sheath must be low smoke zero-halogen (LS0H) type. 11. Roles and responsibilities It is essential that IT Services should be consulted at the initial design stage in order to advise and comment on the proposed project. Drawings and specifications should be submitted to IT Services in good time and as revisions are made. Changes to the design which may have implications for the delivery of the IT infrastructure should be communicated by the contractor or the Estates Services PM to the appropriate member of IT Services (see Appendix 4). On completion of the works a Computing Service representative may undertake a thorough inspection and, if necessary, produce a snagging list. Network Infrastructure Specification v

16 12. Applicable Standards, Testing, and Documentation 12.1 Use of Category 6A The common wiring standard in the USA and widely quoted in Europe is EIA/TIA 568B Category 5 is now obsolete and has been replaced by Category 5e. Category 6 and Category 6A have now also been ratified. Cat5/5e/6/6A relate to various specifications that UTP cabling must meet, including losses, frequency response, crosstalk, etc. Category 6 provides for higher frequencies and requires additional tests; Cat 6A is required for 10-Gigabit networking. New wiring should be to the Category 6A standard. Category 6 is unacceptable, but Category 5e may be permitted for retrofitted additions to older installations. The international equivalent is ISO/IEC nd Edition , and the Europeanspecific equivalent is Cenelec EN :2002. Cabling is specified in a slightly different way, but Class E/EA are roughly the equivalent of Category 6/6A and Class D is roughly the equivalent of Category 5/5e. Note that both the US and European standards are revised from time to time. Adoption of the latest standards would normally be expected Structured cabling test results All wiring installations must be tested to ensure conformity with TIA 568B Category 6A (or 5e where applicable) or IEC 11801, or better. The full wiring test results must be provided to IT Services before the job is signed off as completed/accepted. The preferred form for provision of results is a Linkware file. The manufacturer s certificate of warranty or guarantee must also be provided before signoff Patch panel layout data The cabling contractor shall provide a listing in electronic format (e.g. text file, Excel spreadsheet) of all patch panels which shows, row by row, the mapping of all outlets presented within the wiring centre. The examples below show a typical listing for 24 port patch panels (edited to fit page width): Rack A, Panels 1-2 (ground floor) 016A A A A A A A-07 etc A A A A A A A A-31 etc...016a-48 Rack B, Panels 9-10 (ground floor) 003B B B B B B B-11 etc 003B B-21 03B B B A A A-03 etc 007A Fibre testing All fibre installations must be tested. The University requires both ILM (Insertion Loss Measurement) and OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) tests to be conducted. (Note that ILM tests should be conducted from both ends). The test results must be provided to IT Services before the job is signed off as completed/accepted. Network Infrastructure Specification v
