According to the company, 22,000 feet of CAT6 plenum rated cable was pulled in the deployment. A total of 167 drops were installed; including ICC's CAT6 modular jacks, 48-port blank patch panels, 19-inch relay racks, fiber-optic enclosures, wall mount cabinets, ladder racks, and more. The copper-rated cabling and connectivity was installed and tested to the TIA permanent link spec and then registered with ICC’s Lifetime Performance Warranty.
On August 16, it was announced that the City of Missoula, Montana awarded a project to an ICC Elite Installer to install an ICC Category 6 structured cabling system. The city purchased and renovated a new building to house detectives with the police department and hold evidence in storage. For this project, the Elite Installer pulled over 18,000ft of CAT6 riser-rated cable and installed around 170 drops.
In the building's telecom room, the contractor decided on using modular patch panels. They configured 48-port blank patch panels with CAT6 keystone jacks. Using this modular system provides flexibility for future connectivity changes, notes ICC. In the work areas, the contractor installed faceplates and surface mount boxes with CAT6 jacks at the outlets. The cabling system was installed and tested to the TIA permanent link spec and registered with ICC’s Lifetime Performance Warranty.
ICC says its Elite Installer program "forms a partnership and loyalty between installers and ICC."

Further, by advancing its employees to Certified Elite Installer status with ICC's Master Technician designation, individual contractor firms also qualify to offer the company's Lifetime Performance Limited Warranty with deployed cabling installations.
