AMP ACT III
"Designing Premises Cabling Systems"
An intensive course designed for individuals involved in the design and installation of premises cabling systems. This course, which is approximately 60% hands-on, prepares the individual to handle the many design criteria decisions associated with premises cabling systems. The student will progress through a step-by-step process from the initial design analysis through the final project presentation. There is an emphasis on the design parameters and guidelines of the latest ISO/IEC, EN and EIA/TIA standards, and the decisions that the designer has to make regarding network platforms and technologies, cabling architectures, and media selection. The student will design several different premises cabling systems based on actual projects. These designs will include campus drawings, floorplan layouts, telecommunications closet and rack elevations, intra-building backbone elevations, and the development of a bill of materials. Students, as part of a small group, will present their design solutions to the class and then each proposal will be discussed in an open forum.
