Network Cabling

Connectivity Point Design & Installation (CPDI) recently completed installation of LAN, CATV, and wireless network cabling in a new, multi-use building in Boston's South End.

Located at 600 Harrison Avenue, the 6-story building contains approximately 193,000 square feet of retail and residential space, plus 3 levels of underground parking. The building includes "green" technology and features, meeting qualifications for Silver certification by LEED of the Green Building Council as an energy-efficient structure.

CPDI was hired as a subcontractor by Interstate Electric Services to install the Internet, telephone and TV cabling infrastructure.

CPDI installed cabling from the utility demarcation point to each floor's local telecom room. From there, backbone cabling was installed to each unit on the floor. There were over 160 units ranging from 600 square-foot studios to 1,600 square-foot three-bedroom penthouses. Inside each unit, a multi-media enclosure was installed. Then CATV and voice/data cabling was distributed to locations throughout each of the residential units.

In addition to the backbone and in-unit cabling, CPDI also installed the Layer 1 cabling for the wireless network at approximately 50 locations.
