(FBDF). The FBDF shall be located as directed by the using service. The type
and quantity of fiber cables shall be coordinated with the using service.
Patch panels shall be used to terminate all backbone fiber optic cables.
Horizontal Copper Cable. The horizontal cable shall consist of 4
pair UTP cable rated category 5 or higher. The cable shall be installed
between the communications rooms/closets and the user outlets. The horizontal
UTP cable shall support the voice and data needs of the user. The use of
horizontal UTP rated higher than category 5 shall be permitted when standards
become available for cable performance and testing.
Horizontal Fiber Optic Cable. Horizontal fiber optic cable shall
be installed on an as needed basis to support data requirements of the using
service not easily supported on the horizontal UTP cables. A current example
of this would be to support digital radiology equipment. Horizontal fiber
optic cables will be installed to support known current needs of the using
service and not to support future migrations to fiber.
PDS Outlets. PDS outlets shall be located to support user work
stations throughout the facility. A standard outlet shall consist of 12
centimeter square backbox with a dual 1.6 centimeter plaster ring. The cover
plate shall include a minimum of 6 available positions for jacks. All UTP
jacks shall be 8 pin modular rated at category 5 or higher per EIA/TIA 568.
Standard jacks shall as a minimum contain one jack for voice service and one
marked for data service. The using service shall provide input on the outlet
density and number of jacks required at each work station and each faceplate.
Wall Telephone Outlets. Wall telephone outlets will be located so
that the highest operable device of the telephone is 1.2 meters (48 inches)
above finished floor (AFF). Where restricted by casework, outlets will be
adjusted and appropriately noted on the floor plan and elevation. Desk outlet
boxes will be located 0.45 meters (18 inches) AFF.
Modular Furniture Outlets. Modular Furniture Outlets may be
accommodated by the use of consolidation points or standard wall outlets as
allowed by EIA/TIA 568. The ITP may be located either above the ceiling, in
the IBS located below the floor or on the wall with connecting conduit to the
modular furniture connection point. The use of "power poles" is permitted if
approved by the using service.
DEDICATED INTERCOM SYSTEM.
Dedicated intercom systems shall be
provided in play therapy mirror rooms and group therapy mirror rooms if
required by the using service. In these areas, speaker-microphones will be
installed in the therapy rooms for two way sound communication with the
adjoining mirror room.
CENTRAL DICTATION SYSTEM. Designs for medical facilities will
include conduit, cable and outlets for Government furnished, Government
installed (GFGI) central dictation systems. One or more will be provided,
depending on the size of the facility. Access to the central dictation system
will be provided via the telephone system. A 25 pair (minimum) telephone
cable will be provided to the central dictation room. Cable will be
terminated in a flush mounted terminal cabinet with distribution to wall
outlets at recorder locations. Terminal cabinet and outlets will be shown on
equipment elevation and plan drawings.
