1 Structured Wiring Specifications ERAU Daytona Beach Campus (Dec ) A. Objectives The Information Technology (IT) Department of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) seeks to establish a standards-based wiring infrastructure with this document. The contractor is expected to meet the standards outlined below during the installation. Compliance to all TIA/EIA standards, as defined in this document, is the adherence to both Mandatory and Advisory criteria described in the standards. Thus, if the contractor chooses not to follow Advisory criteria for a particular portion of the project, he is considered to be in non-compliance. Non-compliance to the standards whether resulting from a specific waiver from the Network Team during the site survey or as a result of pragmatic considerations must be documented in the summary report required in item C.1. Failure to document any deviations will be considered a failure to comply with the contract. In no case will building codes be violated. Building codes will take precedence over TIA\EIA standards should a conflict arise between the two. The responsibility of the contractor in determining standards compliance includes reviewing any hardware, architectures, and facilities needed to complete the project. The contractor is also responsible for verifying the accuracy of the part numbers before ordering. Finally, the contractor is expected to identify and obtain any tools required to complete the project. B. Site Survey IT requires a site survey accompanied by the ERAU Network Team as part of any structured cabling project. Once the site survey is complete, the remainder of this document will serve as the required guidelines for installation work. The contractor is required to provide a brief site survey report outlining key issues identified during the survey as called for in item C.1. This document includes general information for numerous types of projects (e.g. copper, fiber, etc). As a result, the contractor need only address those items relevant to the project. For example, if the project only involves horizontal copper installation, the contractor need not concern himself with the requirements identified for fiber. If the vendor has difficulty determining the relevance of a particular requirement, he should contact the Network Team for clarification. ( /7628). C. Required Documentation/Reports IT requires the following sets of documentation as part of an installation. Some items are described in greater detail in various parts of this document. They are consolidated here for ease of reference.
2 C.1 Site Survey Report This report will briefly outline any key items discussed during the survey. This report must be submitted to the network team prior to the start of any installation work. A simple can suffice as a site survey report. This report must identify non-compliance with standards resulting from a site survey or pragmatic considerations. The site survey report must include the name and contact info of the RCDD. RCDD stamp number is also required. C.2 Cable Test Reports Cable test report must be submitted for all installed cables in order to demonstrate certification. The particulars are outlined below in section I. Channel Performance and Architectures. Note that a power budget calculation is required with fiber loss test reports. OTDR test reports are required for all outside cable plant fiber strands. C.3 List of Substitute and Fiber Hardware A complete list of hardware (part number, brief description, and manufacturer) will be provided for those items that are not listed on this document. For example, if the vendor makes a part substitution that has been approved by the network team, this must be provided as part of the documentation. Note a list of required hardware is provided in the Parts List at the end of this document. C.4 Outside Cable Routing Information An illustration showing the routing of new cable for outside cable plant work should include technical details of the type of conduit (note EIA defines raceway with a circular cross-section as conduit) and various pull boxes. The information used to label the fiber (see section M) and the manufacturer's part number should be included on the illustration for cross reference purposes. Cables must also be labeled in manhole appearances. All outside fiber cable plant must be Corning glass constructed. D. Standards The work performed for the project must be in compliance with the EIA standards outlined below, unless otherwise noted. The contractor will identify the latest revision of the standard and any new standards that may have recently come out of draft that may be applicable to the project. TIA/EIA-568-B.1 Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard TIA/EIA-568-B.2 Balanced Twisted Pair Cabling Standard TIA/EIA-568-B.3 Optical Fiber Cabling Components Standard TIA/EIA-569-A Commercial Building Standard for Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces TIA/EIA-606 Administration Standard for the Telecommunications Infrastructure of Commercial Buildings TIA/EIA-607 Commercial Building Grounding and Bonding Requirements for Telecommunications
3 TIA/EIA Measurement of Optical Power Loss of Installed Single-Mode Fiber Cable Plant TIA/EIA A Optical Power Loss Measurements of Installed Multi-mode Fiber Cable Plant TIA/EIA-598-A Optical Fiber Cable Color Coding E. General Campus Architecture In most instances Embry-Riddle s architecture consists of a modest Entrance Facility (small space in a room serving another function) with a direct backbone connection to Telecommunications rooms. The only two rooms that could be classified as Equipment Rooms are the two server rooms located in Lehman Building and in the Simulation Center. F. Turn Key Approach The general intent of this document is to outline a turnkey approach for the wiring infrastructure. In practical terms this means that the ERAU network team will only supply, install, and configure head end equipment (i.e. switches and UPS's) for the activation of the data network. As a result, patch cords for the telecommunications closet for all wired data ports, patch panels (copper or fiber), labeling, racks, cable ladder from the racks to the wall, cable ladder in the hallways, and external/internal fiber runs between closets will be supplied, installed, terminated, labeled, and tested/certified by the contractor. G. Project Description and Terminology The bidder should use terminology consistent with TIA/EIA-568-A when discussing various aspects of the proposal. As an example, the following terms should be used to logically categorize various aspects of project. Horizontal Cabling Backbone Cabling (Intra or Inter-building) Work Area Telecommunications Closets (Transition Point from Backbone to Horizontal) Equipment Rooms Entrance Facilities Administration H. Physical Limitations The contractor will review the lengths of the proposed cable runs and type of cables in order to determine compliance with the relevant access methods listed below before installation. Unless noted otherwise, all pairs and strands for all types of cable will be terminated, tested and labeled.
4 Access Methods and associated standards 10BASE-T 10BASE-FL 100BASE-TX 100BASE-FX 1000BASE-SX standard) 1000BASE-LX 1000BASE-T 90 meters for Cat6 1km for 62.5um/125um 90 meters for Cat6 412 meters for half duplex, 2 km for full duplex on 62.5/125um 62.5um/125 um -200Mhz*km 275 meters -160Mhz*km (is not to be used - we are more stringent than the EIA 62.5/125um 550 meters with mode conditioning patch cords 9/125um or 8.3/125um (depends on method used to measure core) 2km 90 m for Cat6 Cable Types Cat6 62.5/125um multimode Min bandwidth at 850/1300nm is 200/500Mhz * km, respectively. Max attenuation allowed is 3.5/1.5 db/km at 850/1300nm, respectively Note: 160/500Mhz*km is NOT be used - we are more stringent than EIA standards here 9/125 um or 8.3/125 um singlemode Max attenuation allowed is 0.5/0.5 db/km for 1310 and 1550nm Any cables or access methods not listed here but considered part of the project should be clearly identified in the Site Survey Report, item C.1 and in the Substitute Hardware list, item C.3 I. Channel Performance and Architectures One hundred percent of all cables installed will be tested and must pass applicable performance criteria. A test report for all installed cable must be submitted upon completion of the project - see item C.2. I.1 Horizontal Data UTP Cabling Performance
5 Copper cable and patch panels are specified in the parts list and meet Cat6 specifications. Thus all installations will be tested and must pass Cat6 standards unless otherwise noted. Cat5E tests are not an acceptable substitute.. I.2 Horizontal Architecture TE/TrueNet s outlets and connecting hardware (i.e. patch panels) are specified. The general architecture used for horizontal systems is an architecture that allows one patch panel (connecting hardware) with a direct patch cord (equipment cable) from the patch panel to the data networking equipment (common equipment). In summary, all cabling will be terminated (punched down) at the patch panel and terminated (punched down) at the work area outlet. New installations will be wired to the 568B standard. Installations to existing patch panels will require that the contractor determine the standard in use during the site survey. Rack patch panel count/fill rate is as follows: Racks with fiber patch panels (top position) will have no more than 3ea Cat6 48-port patch panels installed. Racks with no fiber patch panels will have no more than 4ea Cat6 48-port patch panels installed. 24-port patch panels are not to be used for data runs. In no case should the rack be configured to more than half full. 1 spare unpopulated 48-port patch panel per rack is required. Horizontal management must be installed between each patch panel. Vertical management must be installed between multiple rack installations and at each end. Cable ladder is required in the data closet from the wall from which horizontal cable will be fed. Rack and ladder must be black in color. Note that a special termination tool is required for some older but not newer TE/TrueNet Patch Panels and RJ45 jacks and must be obtained by the contractor. New TE/TrueNet patch panels and RJ45 jacks can be terminated with 110 punch down tools. I.3 Horizontal Voice UTP Cabling Only Cat6 cable will be run to an office faceplate (telecommunications outlet) in a work area regardless if the outlet has been designated for generic phone or data use. All horizontal cable will terminate on 48-port data patch panels in the telecommunications room. A separate voice patch panel is designated for voice tie cables that are fed from the AT&T demarcation point for specialty phones and devices that may require traditional lines (e.g VOIP gateway). 24- port Cat6 patch panels maybe used for this application. ERAU campus is a VOIP environment, implying that all phone ports are Cat6 connections unless otherwise noted. Contact the Telecom Team for details. Specialty phone horizontal cabling and phone tie cabling will not appear on the same patch panel. All horizontal cable, in this scenario, must be tested to meet Cat6 specifications regardless of the intended use of an outlet. The tie cables (typically 25 pair cables with telco connectors - installed by the contractor) will normally originate at the voice patch panel (1pair/rj-45jack) and terminate directly on the AT&T demarcation point using a standard telco connector (to be determined during site survey). Pair number one will be wired to jack position one on the patch panel, pair two to patch position two, and so forth. Since the patch panels are typically equipped with 24 or 48 positions, pair 25 will not be used. This will result in each row on the 48 port voice patch panel serving one 25 pair cable. Should the building consist of multiple floors or phone/data closets requiring intrabuilding voice tie cables between closets. Confirm tie cable wiring schemes during the initial site survey with the ERAU Telecom Team.
6 In unusual situations where telco connectors cannot be used on the demarcation point, standard 66 blocks can be used and must be cross connected by the contractor. In short, the contractor is responsible for extending the demarcation point to the newly installed voice patch panels. Any 66 blocks installed by the contractor should be equipped with blue hinge style covers (e.g Siemon part # MC425LH-6). The contractor is free to choose his own supplier for voice cables (CAT3), 66 blocks, telco connectors, and covers. Patch panels must be selected in accordance with the bill of materials supplied with this document (TE/TrueNet panels). All voice cabling/pairs must be test for continuity after installation. I.4 Horizontal 62.5/125 um Optical Fiber IT presently has no plans to implement fiber in the Horizontal for the office space. New buildings or renovations do typically require new fiber runs for all of the following systems, but may be called out under a different contract (contact HVAC or Safety Department to determine responsibility for these specific fiber requirements): 1. Energy management system: 6 strands of 62.5um fiber from the EMS control box to the data closet fiber patch panel. If no fiber patch panel is in place, the contractor must supply it and preferably mount it at the top of the data rack. SC connectors are required at the data closet and end connectors are to be determined for HVAC equipment during the site survey or program review. 2. Fire Alarm: 6 strands of 62.5um fiber from the fire alarm panel to the data closet fiber patch panel. If no fiber patch panel is in place, the contractor must supply it and preferably mount it at the top of the data rack.. SC connectors are required at the data closet end. Alarm panel connectors to be determined during the survey. 3. See Item I.5 (below) for inter-data closet fiber requirements. I. 5 Backbone Cabling All backbone cabling (between buildings) will be a mix of multi-mode and single mode fiber as listed in section H and must be constructed using Corning glass. Fiber strand counts/type will be determined during the site survey. Terminate all strands using SC connectors in rack mounted fiber patch panels if rack space is available, otherwise wall mounted patch panels will be required. On new rack installations, the fiber patch panel will generally be placed at the top of the rack. Blue SC connectors are to be used for single-mode fiber and beige SC for multimode. Since fiber patch cords must also be supplied by the contractor, please note that orange is the requirement for multimode patch cords and yellow for single mode. Test fiber for loss (db) from patch panel to patch panel, and repair any fiber/connectors mated pairs whose insertion loss exceeds 0.75db. Identical patch panels and layout must be used at each end of new fiber runs to facilitate fiber location and troubleshooting. For example, if a strand of fiber appears at position D2 in one building it should appear on D2 at the distant end. Panels must be labeled reflecting remote end s building name. If existing panels are used, the labeling scheme is waived.
7 OTDR test reports are required for all outside cable plant fiber strands. The contractor will replace any newly installed cable that the OTDR shows as damaged at his own expense. In addition to the required test report, power loss budget calculations are required for all 'like' fiber runs (one calculation for multi-mode runs of same length, one for all single mode runs of same length, etc) indicating the expected loss of the cable in question. End to end measured loss must not exceed by 0.5db the calculated/expected value. Include the power budget calculation with the test report called for in item C.2. The color-coding scheme used for fiber cabling when terminating and connecting fiber to the patch panel shall comply with TIA/EIA-598-A. If the manufacturer's cable does not comply with this standard, then the contractor must obtain prior approval from the network team during the site survey. In addition, the color code standard must be documented in item C.1 if the cable is non-compliant. Notation used on the patch panel at one end of a fiber run should be duplicated at the far end. The intent is to facilitate end-to-end troubleshooting based on tubes associated with a particular vertical panel. Note that ALL fiber strands will be terminated, tested, and connected to the patch panel by the contractor. Finally, fill rate considerations for any fiber pulled through duct should be briefly discussed in the required item C.1 Site Survey Report, in accordance with TIA/EIA 569-A. Reference the particular section of the standard or any other applicable standard used to determine acceptable fill rates. Please note that new or buildings under renovation with multiple data closet will require that the contractor pull, terminate, and test fiber runs between various data closets internal to a single building. The strand counts are to be determined during the site survey or program review. Again these will be SC terminations to contractor supplied patch panels. J. Pathways and Spaces All work within and between buildings must comply with TIA/EIA 569-A, unless otherwise documented. If the site survey determines that it would be pragmatic to make use of existing facilities that are not TIA/EIA compliant, these non-compliant facilities must be identified in the site survey report, item C.1. All new building projects require installation and use of ladder or spine cable tray (outside of data closet). NOTE: All visible ladder, trays, and racks must be black in color. Renovation projects require the installation and use of ladder or spine cable tray where feasible (e.g. no complications with circumventing Air Conditioning ducting, etc) or where budget limits do not prohibit their use. Any special EMI considerations (TIA/EIA 569-A sec. 10.3) should be noted during the survey. If major construction is required, such as the construction of an entrance facility or burial of conduit, a brief technical description should be included. Direct burial is not an acceptable method of installing outside fiber cable plant. Instead a minimum requirement of 4 PVC type C (direct burial PVC) is called for when designing interbuilding pathway facilities. A metallic tracer wire is also required when laying new conduit. All new or empty conduit will be filled with inner duct prior to pulling new cable. Since Annex C of TIA/EIA-569-A discusses maintenance hole, hand hole, and pull box issues, a site survey for
8 outside plant work should include a review of these items for compliance with the standard. As noted before, should pragmatic considerations require the use of non-compliance facilities, then they must be documented and approved. Split (two piece) manhole covers with spring loaded will be used for new manhole construction. Suggested supplier: (teamgalloway.com). Contact facilities regarding needed load ratings. The TIA/EIA does not provide a complete set of specifications for cable slack. As a result, please provide at least 6 ft of slack. K. Grounding and Bonding TIA/EIA-607 states that it s primary objective is to provide design guidance for new buildings. A contractor will be required to adhere to TIA/EIA-607 if the installation requires a new rack. L. Qualified Personnel The contractor must employ at least one Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) who is certified by The Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI). The site survey report must include the name and RCDD stamp of the project's RCDD. The contractor must be an TE/TrueNet Certified Installer with a minimum of four TE/TrueNet certified installations in the last three years. If the project involves fiber installation, the contractor must provide proof of vendor specific fiber installation training. M. Administration Labeling is considered a critical item for the management of a cabling infrastructure. TIA/EIA- 606 provides guidance for the administrative aspects of building cabling infrastructure. Section 3.4 (EIA-606) outlines a suggested naming convention that has been only partially adopted by IT and refined for the CABLE and BACKBONE CABLE codes CXXX and CBXXX due to patch panel space limitations. For horizontal wiring, the code will be extended to as many letters/digits as needed based on the rule illustrated below. C-BDRMFJ C represents the EIA designator of Cable for the horizontal. The C and dashes are optional and typically not used if label space considerations limit the number of letters. BD represents a two letter building code that will be provided during the survey. The building code (BD) is also typically omitted if the building does not have subsections with different names. RM represents the room number of the work area to which the cable has been pulled. Room numbers are required in all cases. F represents the face plate number in a particular room and takes on values 1,2,3 and so on. J represents the jack position on a particular faceplate and takes the value of A, B, C, and so on. All patch panel appearances must be labeled in accordance with the methodology outlined here. All office faceplates (outlets) must also be labeled using the same scheme. Thus the third face plate in a building called the Aviation Building (AB) in room 512 with four jacks in the face plate would have them labeled as 512-3A, 512-3B, 512-3C, 512-3D.
9 Note that section of TIA/EIA-606 calls for all cables to be labeled at each end and in all manhole appearances. A printing device is required for making these labels. Handwritten labels are not acceptable. Backbone fiber will be labeled as described below. CB-B1-RM1-B2-RM2-#F-LGTHM B1 is the two letter designator for a campus building (e.g. LB for Lehman) at one end of the cable termination point. RM1 is the room number in which the cable terminates. B2 is the other building at which the cable terminates, in room RM2. #F is the fiber strand count. The count should be defined by mode and core diameter. For example 6SM9/24MM62 (i.e. 6 strands of single mode 9 um core with 18 multi-mode with 62.5 um core. LGTHM is the length of the run in meters. Specially enhanced fiber (special performance characteristics) should be marked as such. Fiber must also be labeled with both designations of both ends in the manhole appearance. All labeling color schemes should comply with section 8 of TIA/EIA-606. N.
