Peregrine Computer Consultants Corporation (PCCC)

Network Wiring

Typical Specifications for Voice/Data/Analog Wiring

As of November 1, 2006, PCCC no longer recommends or uses Category 3 cable or jacks because of the growth of technologies such as Voice over IP (VOIP) and IP Telephony. In short, what are now "Voice" lines are much more likely to be repurposed as "Data" lines to support newer technologies and using only Cat 5e jacks, equipment and cabling provides the best platform for our customers to quickly and easily upgrade in the future.
  • All work will be done by Peregrine Computer Consultants Corporation. Customer shall be responsible for all permit drawings, permit acquisitions, and all related fees, if applicable.

  • Provide High Quality, 4-pair, Category 5e Cable or better.

  • Provide Category 5e Rated (or better) Equipment for all work including patch panels, patch cables, tools and jacks.

  • Terminate all 4 pairs to a single connection to prevent crossover and allow for future expansion to 1000BaseT Copper & VOIP.

  • Provide and utilize only plenum-rated cable and UL-listed cable.

  • Test all cables and terminations for connectivity on all 4 pairs and will confirm transport with machine install.

  • Provide a 1-year warranty on all wiring, labor and parts from the time of acceptance by the Company or Company's Representative. A reasonable service fee of $19.00 may be charged for onsite visits, if required, more than 30 days after completion of the work.
