Through voice of the customer, ACS developed our Zone Distribution System (ZDS) for your Telecommunication needs. Our Intelligent Floor® customers were enjoying the benefits of a relocatable power solution and requested we do the same for voice and data. Our ZDS is built to EIA/TIA standards to ensure category 5, 5e or 6 compliant connections at the workstation.
Our relocatable telecomm solutions are custom designed and factory tested and certified. We lead the industry in protected cable bundling which can eliminate costly accessories and contribute labor savings benefits over the life of the location. The security and protection of your data is important and our solution offers both.
This system distributes voice and data throughout the zone. A telecommunication home run cable runs from the telecom closet to a Zone Distribution Box (ZDB). Extender Cables then bring service from the ZDB to individual users.
Consolidation Point (CP) and Multi- User Telecommunication Outlet (MUTO) configurations are available.
STANDARD TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS INCLUDE:
- 24 port ZDB coupled with 12 x 4 pair UTP and 12 x 1 pair fiber
- 18 port ZDB coupled with 18 x 4 pair UTP
- 18 port ZDB coupled with 12 x 4 pair UTP and 6 fiber
- 12 port ZDB coupled with 12 x 4 pair UTP
- 12 port ZDB coupled with 2 x 25 pair UTP
- 12 port ZDB coupled with 12 fiber
Zone Distribution Box
The Zone Distribution Box functions as a telecommunication Consolidation Point (CP) or Multi-User telecommunication Outlet box (MUTO). This enclosure, when combined with our pre-terminated telecommunication home run cable, provides a communication wiring distribution point between the telecommunication closet and the end user location.
The enclosure can be fitted with a variety of industry standard copper or fiber telecommunication modules which provide connectivity, cable management, and slack storage for cables. The standard telecommunication home run cable is a bundled and armored assembly consisting of unshielded twisted pair or fiber optic cable. The telecommunication system is factory tested to meet TIA 568A performance specifications. Standard 12 or 18 port copper and/or fiber configurations are available.
Telecommunication Extender Cables
These cables are used to connect desktop devices to the ZDB. Cable configuration varies based on user requirements. For a Consolidation Point (CP) configuration, these cables generally use RJ45MP or SC connectors at the ZDB and are factory-terminated on a RJ45MJ or SC connector at the faceplate. On the Multi-User Telecommunication Outlet (MUTO) configuration, these cables generally use RJ45MP connectors on both ends providing direct connection of the desktop devices to the ZDB.
