Network Cabling Fun Facts
Grommet

Grommets are sometimes also referred to as a bushing or an eyelet. No matter what you may call it, they are all still used the same way. Picture this; during a new construction project, you drill a whole at the top of a metal wall frame to run your cables down the beams. A grommet is inserted after you drill the hole so that the cables are not ruined by the sharp hole.

Cable Pathways

Whenever you are pulling cable, you have to have a plan otherwise everything could fall apart.

  • Arteries: Arteries are the main horizontal pathways when an installer is pulling cable. These pathways will lead you back to your MDF and your IDF.
  • Branches: Like its name, these cables branch off of the main pathway to go down a pole, wall or column to the end location
Pulling Methods

As mentioned in “Cable Pathways”, you have to have a plan. Below are some of the common methods of pulling cable.

  • Far Point
  • Pull Feed
  • Pull Back
  • Push Pull: Typically used when you encounter errors.
  • Drop Back: Typically used when you encounter errors.
  • Coil Feed
  • Coil Toss
Cable Delivery Method

In most cases, you will encounter one or more of the following type of installs.

  • Open: Just as it sounds, this deals with open ceilings, raised floors and/or surface walls. An installer would utilize J-Hooks, Cable Slings, Bridle Rings, D-Rings and Tie-Wraps
  • Enclosed: An installer would utilize conduits, floor ducts, walls, inner ducts, cellular floors and/or columns.
  • Confined: An installer would utilize a cable tray, furniture raceway, perimeter raceway and/or power poles.
Labeling

Always ensure that you label each cable. While there are many methods, utilizing at least one of them will save you headaches down the line. The most common labeling methods is by marking it with a sharpie or using a flag or wrap around printed label.
