The installation time spent on sitewas greatly reduced thanks to the use of pre-terminated cable looms,which were manufactured and tested off site.One of the key challenges to solve was the running of a fibre and coppercable backbone over thirty floors from the IT computer room at the footof the building to the office floors.PicturesAutumn 2009 Page 1 3. Able Data SCS Reference SitesAshmolean MuseumSummary Cabling of Major New Building ExtensionContactDr Jonathan Moffett Ashmolean Museum, Beaumont Street, Oxford OX1 2PHContract 200KSystemsMolex Cat6InstalledDec 2008 - Oct 2009BuilderBAMProjectThe Ashmolean Museum, dating from the 17th century, is the oldest public museum in the UK. Award-winning architect Rick Mather created a new building that has doubled the Ashmoleans gallery space and state-of-the-art facilities. In November 2009, the 61M redevelopment opened to the public. Able Data installed a structured cabling system, consisting of nearly a thousand outlets, spread over 6 floors of the new building extension. Each of the 13 remote patch cabinet locations had a fibre & copper backbone linking to the Basement computer room. As well as the provision of the computer cabinets at each location Able Data supplied & installed an APC UPS & 3Comm Switch. The biggest challenge was the complexity and range of cable routes. Whilst some outlets are located in low floor boxes, others for high gallery points (overhead projectors etc) are at more than eight metres high. Another challenge was fitting cabling around a complex building program; many outlets could not be terminated or tested until after the exhibition cabinets had been installed.Pictures Autumn 2009Page 2 4.

AsDescription part of their UK data centre consolidation strategy, Fidelity required anew Data Centre facility at its HQ facility at Tonbridge.Spread over two underground data halls and two office floors, theproject required the installation of 30,000 Cat6 copper links and 11,000OM3 duplex fibre links to 300 Rittal cabinets and used more than700km of cable. All links connect to a patch field of 80 x CPI patchframes, each monitored with the iPatch Intelligent patch system.The Data Centre was cabled overhead on three levels of CPI ladderracking. One of the biggest challenges faced by Able Data was todeliver the required high quality of cabling. To work out the optimumcable routing schemes, Able Data built an offsite mock up of a row ofpatch frames and the associated cables. To speed up installation whilstminimising unsightly cable slack, Able Data single end pre-terminatedall copper and fibre links. The entire installation was completed over a14 week period.As well as building and configuring a 40,000 port iPatch system tomanage patching and monitor network devices, Able Data implementedadditional bespoke functionality tailored to Fidelitys requirements,including auto server provisioning.PicturesAutumn 2009 Page 6 9.

This was to be based upon the eBay US model of cabling and would form the 1st of a number of similar installations around Europe. Able Data installed 2,000 SYSTIMAX outlets over five floors. As per the eBay standard, these were implemented in groups of four on US style faceplates. To fit in with the strong eBay logo branding, the outlets were implemented using coloured jacks, yellow and green (Cat6 for data) and blue and red (Cat5e for voice). These were cabled back to the patch rooms through three cables, the voice outlets sharing one cable. As well as a number of local patch rooms, the project also involved the installation of a data centre. All were built using CPI open frame racks for patching and servers, including full overhead ladder racking. The impressive effect was further enhanced in the data centre by the installation of an overhead Panduit Fibrerunner system for the containment of the fibre interconnections. A crucial aspect of the project was the logistics of shipping specialist materials from UK, US and other parts of Europe in short timescales.PicturesAutumn 2009 Page 16 18.
