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!

Easter Seals Corporate Center Expansion

Cable Concepts recently wired the expansion for Easter Seals’ Corporate Center in Raleigh, NC near Crabtree Valley Mall. This expansion has tripled the center’s existing space. We ran category 6 structured cabling to the new floors for their computers, phones, cubicles, printers and wireless access points with will provide phone connectivity and internet access. For their three new conference rooms, we installed and connected 70″ flat screens with HDMI, VGA, and audio cables to the conference room tables. Our techs also connected the newly wired space to the existing server room through an OM3 10 gig fiber back bone.

We were glad to have worked with Easter Seals’ IT Director and hope to do more work for them in the future.

Cary Orthopaedics Structured Cabling

Cary Orthopaedics has been a good customer of ours through the years; from fiber runs to category 6 cable pulls to VOIP phone installation, we’ve done some great work at their locations. We pulled all new structured cabling for their new clinic in Morrisville; which provides not only orthopaedic services, but also spine surgery and rehabilitation and physical therapy for their patients.  In the last month, we pulled category 6 cable for a nurse’s station at their Cary location which connected their computers, network printers, scanners, and wireless access points.

We enjoy doing work for Cary Orthopaedics and hope to do more for them in the future.

Thanks to our techs for their continued hard work!

Peace College Telecommunications Upgrade

Cable Concepts recently completed a telecommunications upgrade for Peace College in Raleigh NC. Our techs pulled and terminated 50 micron 10 gig fiber optics cable to 12 buildings from the main server room and install Access Point and cell phone nodes campus wide.

Students will now be able to better access online tools and communicate with family, friends, and colleagues with ease.

Cable Concepts partnered with Verizon and Vincumulus Corporation for this project. and we would like to thank all involved for their tenacity and extensive planning which helped us with this landmark project.
