Carolina Hurricanes – Server Room Cleanup

Cable Concepts recently performed a server room overhaul for Raleigh’s Carolina Hurricanes, whose home is the PNC Arena. The new owners of the Carolina Hurricanes were making improvements and updates to existing facilities and hired Cable Concepts to cleanup and organize their server room.  The project included re-running fiber terminations, re-terminating Category 6 patch panels and patch cables, cross-connecting voice connections, and installing vertical and horizontal cable management to the server racks. We also re-patched in all computers, phones, printers, and fiber connections to switches and routers and brought 24 remote Telco rooms back online.

It was a pleasure to make Carolina Hurricane’s server room neater and more organized!

The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic

Cable Concepts is pleased to have cabled the The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic in Raleigh, NC this past month. We pulled Category 6 structured cabling to connect printers, phones, computers, TVs, MRIs, and X-ray machines and terminated Category 6 patch panels in the server room. Our techs also installed a 7ft. rack with cable management and used a fiber optic backbone to connect an MRI room on a different floor to the server room. Then, we extended the Spectrum demark from the building’s telco room to the new data rack.

We enjoyed doing work for The Bone and Joint Surgery Clinic and hope to do more for them in the future.

Thanks to our techs for their hard work and dedication to this project!

Automation of Austin Quality Foods (Kelloggs) Plant

Last week, Cable Concepts finished a fiber upgrade for Austin Quality Foods (Kelloggs). The plant, which is located in Cary, NC, is currently implementing their plan to streamline their plant to make production of their snack line more efficient.
We ran single mode six strand fiber to data cabinets throughout the manufacturing facility and terminated it to 6 port fiber wall boxes, which are located in the data cabinets.  We also ran Cat 6 structured cabling to various areas along the processing line, then terminated it to Cat 6 patch panels. Lastly, we certified all cabling.

Fun Fact: We have this plant to thank for some delicious snacks, including Cheez-its and Lance Snack Crackers!

Excellent job, Cable Concepts techs!       

Recent Cabling Jobs

It has been a busy 2017 for Cable Concepts so far! Here are just a couple of the jobs our techs have completed in the new year:

For UNC-TV, Cable Concepts ran 96 strand single mode fiber optic structured cable from their server room to their production room. We also ran OM3 10 gig fiber to connect new server cabinets.

Cable Concepts also wired the new corporate office for Plannernet in Durham. Our techs ran Cat 6 cable to phones and computers as well as wireless access points and IP security cameras. We built out their server room with data racks and lastly, installed tablets outside of the conference rooms which will be used by Plannernet employees for reserving the conference rooms.

Comfort Systems needed a new VoIP phone system, so we re-terminated Cat 6 cable to change over from voice to data cabling.

Our techs are off to a fantastic start!
