Any contractors installing fiber optic and network cabling on a UALR campus must use the Horizontal Link Cabling worksheet to identify and label cables.

Information Technology Services is responsible for overseeing installation, maintenance and administration of all UALR campus telecommunications hia network critical physical infrastructure.

ANSI TIA EIA – 606A Guide – English

Two categories of criteria are specified; mandatory and advisory. Mandatory criteria generally apply to protection, performance, administration and compatibility.

They specify the absolute minimum acceptable requirements. Conformance with the additional advisory criteria of this Standard can be expected to enhance the performance and usability of the cabling infrastructure. Ensuring requirements are clear and standards are incorporated in the design phase significantly reduces the risk of costly revisions later. These departments are key stakeholders in helping the end user ensure their requirements are understood and met, that applicable codes and standards are appropriately reflected in the design phase, and the resulting project is sustainable over the course of its planned lifecycle.

Space for connection of the building communication cable to the outside plant must be provided as a separate room and not shared with other utility services, particularly the electrical service.

When possible, this room will not be adjacent to the electrical distribution room. Information Technology Services recognizes and implements national codes and standards as a means to provide for and administer the critical infrastructure necessary for daily information technology use here at UALR. This document is intended to raise awareness of these codes and standards and to provide additional guidance on their implementation here at UALR.

This Standard does not replace any code, either partially or wholly. The reader shall consult the Authority Having Jurisdiction concerning applicable codes that may impact the use of this Standard. In all cases, the following installation, documentation, component and system industry specifications shall be met or exceeded:. The list of codes and standards 2. It is not all inclusive. Personnel acting in any professional capacity have a responsibility to comply with and perform their work in accordance with all applicable national, state and local codes governing their profession.

The latest edition of these referenced standards shall be the controlling document. In the case of proposed standards, the latest available draft shall be the controlling document.

Where the standards appear to conflict with one another, the one with the most stringent requirements shall be applicable. There is latitude within the standards to expand or vary implementation, apply more stringent criteria, and to specify organizational guidance on how these standards shall be applied and administered. The remaining sections of this document provide amplifying information on how these standards are to be followed at UALR.

This section is intended to convey the most current information technology infrastructure guidelines for the work areas typically found at a university. These are the minimum initial planning requirements to design and build the appropriate infrastructure to support the foreseeable use of the intended facility. For each type of work area listed in this section, the end user shall consult with Information Technology Services to help determine the specific configuration necessary to meet work area requirements.

Information Technology Services maintains this documentation.

All cable and station wiring that is to be connected to, or disconnected from, the campus communication network must be reported to Information Technology Services for approval. This must be submitted in writing so that accurate infrastructure records can be maintained. All the information to label wall plates, horizontal cabling, fia panels and distribution frames 60a6 be included in Information Technology Services cable management records system. The A identifiers are shown in italics.


Each character in the identifier represents a key piece of information. The A Standard allows administrative flexibility to accommodate variations in naming conventions format Sections A2 and A5such as alpha designations for floors.

The size of the cable 606x will be based on the requirements of the facility. Any project that requires moving or rerouting of telecommunication cables will bear the cost of said moves. All infrastructure testing results will be documented.

Paper and electronic copies of all testing documentation is to be provided to Information Technology Services at the conclusion of testing.

This document provides required test anis at specific discrete ela. The tabulated values are intended for reference only. All UTP cable and patch cordage shall be swept-tested through a prescribed frequency range.

By convention, all values of electrical characteristics, while predominantly negative numbers representing lossesare expressed as absolute values positive numbers.

During its requirements review, Information Technology Services will base its specific recommendations and approval of proposed projects on compatibility with the existing and planned infrastructure, legal requirements, mandatory use of state contracts, warranty and certification requirements, maintenance and overhead costs and other factors affecting the total cost of ownership. Wireless access point installation locations shall be documented on plans.

Wireless networks shall be installed only as extensions or additions to hard-wired networks, and not as a replacement for cabled data, telephone, or CATV networks.

In all cases, the following installation, documentation, component and system industry specifications shall be met or exceeded: Installation and mitigation guidelines — Section 2: The need for a cable TV outlet will be considered during the planning process.

Classrooms may be designed to be subdivided, by adding or removing walls, in the future.


If this is a design consideration, the number and location of communication outlets will be adjusted accordingly. The recommended location for outlets is as follows: Rooms with more than square feet should have two duplex communication outlets. Faculty or staff offices Two duplex data communications outlets jacks for offices with fixed walls of square feet or more are required. One additional duplex data outlet for each additional square feet of office space or each additional occupant is required.

For offices designed with modular furniture, each cubicle or workstation will be provided with one duplex communication outlet per designated occupant. Additionally, a set of station wires one voice and one data will be installed as a spare to each cluster of six 6 office cubicles.

Graduate student offices One duplex communication outlet for every tiz square feet of space. Laboratories As a minimum, install one single wall phone outlet and one duplex data communication outlet. Since laboratories requirements are diverse, coordinate with the end user and Information Technology Services at the onset of design for renovation and new construction projects, and prior to the initiation of work orders, contracts, or other installation action for other types of projects.

Libraries Libraries will be wired in accordance with the size of the room and need for communication. Residence halls Install one voice jack per room, one data jack per student, and one cable TV outlet in each room. Storage areas One wall-phone eeia outlet for each room over square feet and one additional phone outlet for each additional square feet are required. Access to cross-connects Access to the cross-connect is acceptable by either extending the cable tray or providing conduit.


Backbone cabling requirements The main building wiring closet will have single mode fiber originating from and distributed to each of the other wiring closets on anxi floor in the building. Fiber cabling from the first floor main wiring closet to and between each of the building floors shall be twelve strands 12 single-mode optical fiber.

Fiber optic cable shall have at least 30 feet of additional cable aansi on each end upon entering the cross-connect room. Previously, main and intermediate cross-connects were called main distribution frames MDF and intermediate distribution frames IDFrespectively.

This document will use the term eiz to represent either the main or intermediate cross-connect. Conduit maximum lengths without pull boxes No conduit run, without a pull box, is to be longer than feet and have no more than two degree bends.

Conduit specifications Conduits to communication outlets are to be a minimum of one inch.

A dedicated conduit will serve each outlet box. Pull boxes, if needed, must be accessible. Do not place pull boxes above fixed 606z, HVAC ducts or piping. Drop ceilings A cable wire tray may be placed above drop ceilings with the 1-inch communication outlet conduits stubbed to the cable tray from individual room outlets. This tray will provide a path back to the cross-connect.

The tray will have a maximum of 8-inch spacing between cable supports and 4-inch sides. Width of the tray will be determined by the quantity of cables in the tray, and projected growth. Cable trays and conduits must be properly grounded. Ti NEC codes for grounding of cable trays will be adhered to. Basket tray is now acceptable, ria long as, it has 4 inch sides. Electrical requirements Although the electrical load is minimal most devices draw less than 1 ampevery component requires electrical service: Each communication outlet should be located in proximity to a duplex electric outlet to accommodate the need to plug in the electronic equipment using the communication outlet.

Equipment cabinet requirements Enclosed cabinets shall have a rack mount width of 19 inches, with a height dependent on space and mounting constraints. Enclosed cabinets shall have a roof mounted cable fan and cable entry. Enclosed cabinets must be at least 32 inches deep wia accommodate a rack mounted uninterruptible power supply UPS.

Information Technology Services shall work with end users and planners to identify equipment cabinet requirements. Existing intra-building wiring There are currently five different types of legacy network infrastructure cabling that exists within campus buildings. Fire stops Approved UL fire stops must be used when penetrating fire rated walls or floors. Horizontal cabling This is also called station or premise wiring.

Horizontal cabling support to UALR spaces For new construction, each room shall have horizontal cabling to support a minimum of two 2 data ports and one 1 telephone port using Category 6a wiring. Outlet cable path requirement All communication outlets will have conduit, wire mold, or other suitable path provided to the nearest cross-connect or to 606z cable tray that provides a path back to the nearest cross-connect.

Cables shall be secured at every corner. If cable ties are used, they must be trimmed off cleanly at the locking hole. Cables shall be run in a uniform fashion and shall not be woven among other utilities. Each wiring run must be individually labeled. Paths for cabling between cross-connects A path between cross-connects in separate communications rooms is required.
