Termination of Telecommunications Cables
All cables shall be terminated and tested during the installation process.
Twisted Pairs shall not be untwisted more than 0.5 inches, and preferred .025 inches, from the point of termination for Category 6 cable.
The cable jacket or outer sheath shall be left intact as close to the termination as possible. Cable jackets shall not be painted, covered with insulation or other material that hides the label on the jacket.
Cables will be neatly dressed with Velcro at the rear of the patch panel onto Siemon Rear wire managers, but not cinched so tightly as to indent the cable sheaths.
