MAC Network Cabling job in Center City Philadelphia, PA Details

Bridge Cable responded to a MAC in Center City Philadelphia. In the world of network cabling, MAC does not mean what you think it might. We are referring to a move, add, and/or change, not the popular smart phone brand. Now that we’ve cleared up what a MAC is, let me explain how one Bridge Cable technician was able to move, add, and change a few network cables around for our valued client.

We arrived under the impression we were installing one cable, but as is the case many times, it became two data cables. As we always state, flexibility and stellar communication are vitally virtuous in what we do as professional data and voice cable installers.


Here our one tech Chris is doing another MAC network cabling job in Philadelphia, PA office.


Our intern quickly got to work carefully removing ceiling tiles. ***Hint: Use your fists to avoid fingerprints because they may leave dirt, and you may avoid being a suspect if anything were ever to go down. But I regress.

Once the pathway from the server room to the two drop locations was established, it was discovered there were a few old wires not being used. And our intern, who was paying attention at our last jobsite, and ate his Wheaties, realized he could use these old wires to pull the two new ones. The first wire went to a location in a new office, and our intern was basking in the glory of how easy of a drop it was. There was nothing such as insulation, metal studs, or pesky rodents getting in the way this time.

The additional location was in a conference room against a concrete wall. The original plan was to run a molding along the floor next the existing molding for electric. This would not have been a problem, and our technician was ready and willing to execute this plan. However, after further consideration our client requested to change it to the adjacent wall. This resulted in having to move it to wall, which had not been dry-walled yet.

Cooperation With Other Contractors

Our techs are trained to always cooperate with, and exhibit the utmost respect for the general contractor. On this bright sunny afternoon the general contractor just so happened to be on site, and through proper communication, and an established friendly relationship, the general contractor agreed to finish the installation. Our technician assured that after the CAT6 wire was carefully moved and adjusted that it was jacked, plated, tested, and certified.

We are pleased to form these types of friendly cooperation with other contractors to keep first tings first, which is to ensure the overall satisfaction of the customer. Bridge Cable would have been more than happy to return to finish the installation, but this mutual bond helped save our client money, and boosts morale among contractors who often get a bad reputation for butting heads with one another. Remember guys, satisfied clientele means more work for all of us. Can’t we all just get along?


Another MAC network cabling request was done at another site in New Jersey area.

So, back to using the old wire for pulling the new: It may seem cut and dry, easy peasy, one two, threezy, but you cannot just pull it and leave it like that. If you were ever to look up in a ceiling and see any wires not secured, and floating low, that’s a no-no. Not only does it put up a red flag for an inspector, but also it can cause network or other unwanted and unnecessary issues down the road. Not to mention it shows a lack of professionalism.
