4 OVERVIEW 1. This document is a guide to all Architects, Engineers, Consultants, and Contractors pertaining to the construction design, review, comments, and approval procedures for telecommunication and Network services as required by the University of Illinois at Chicago. Deviations will not be permitted without the consent of ACCC/Telecom Engineering Department. The UIC ACCC/Telecom Engineering Department can be reached at 2. The University of Illinois at Chicago leases a CENTREX service from Ameritech for some voice services.
5 Ameritech supplies dial tone to several Nodes on the University property. The dial tone is then delivered to the various campus locations on University owned and maintained copper cable plant. Unified voice services are delivered over the ACCC data network. 3. The University also owns and manages an independent campus fiber optic distribution system that links the various buildings together to provide high speed data service for its users 4. The communications system consists of major elements as follows: a) Dial tone is delivered to Nodes from Ameritech's Monroe Central Office.
6 B) The Nodes are connected by University Cable to all UIC building IDFs (Intermediate Distribution Frames). c) The IDF is connected to all FDFs (Floor Distribution Frames) within the building. d) The FDF is home for each individual Telecommunications INFORMATION OUTLET. e) Network supported services are distributed over campus fiber optics from University Data Centers to each building IDF and FDF. f) The telecommunication outlet has a minimum of two category 6 or 6a data jacks. (1) For locations with Centrex or analog required services the addition of a voice jack may be required.
7 (2) Any changes to the standard Telecommunications outlet must be approved by the ACCC/Telecom Engineering Department 5. All new or remodeled buildings must include both copper cable and fiber optic distribution systems extended to each FDF to properly serve the buildings. 6. These Standards are provided to maintain adequate communications facilities in the University Buildings. Communication facilities include the cable distribution plant and cable termination equipment, both copper and fiber. 7. The Project Manager shall abide by these Standards and allow no deviations without the consent of the ACCC/Telecom Engineering Department.
8 All consultants shall incorporate this information into the design for all University projects. Telecommunications Standards Manual Page | 3 B. GENERAL INFORMATION 1. The University's communications systems are complex. The systems that comprise the overall network enable the University to conduct its business. They include a variety of architectures and operate over numerous types of media. For questions contact the UIC ACCC/Telecom Engineering Department at 2. This standard specifies minimum requirements for Telecommunications wiring between and within University buildings at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
9 3. This standard specifies a media system with a definite topology and specifies allowable distances between system components. The parameters of this media will determine performance, specific connectors and pin assignments to ensure interconnect ability. 4. Although the scope is limited only to the Telecommunications aspect of building design, it should be recognized that this standard highly influences the design of other building systems and services; it also impacts space allocation within the building.
10 5. The term Telecommunications as it relates to this standard encompasses all forms of information transport and processing. These will include voice, data, video, security, safety and any other Telecommunications ingredients of a modern building. Telecommunications Standards Manual Page | 4 C. RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORITY 1. UIC Telecommunications DEPARTMENT a) The Telecommunications Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago will have the final review, approval, and acceptance authority for all Telecommunications systems, facilities, and material.
