A: Refer to the Telecommunications Distribution Methods Manual of the Building Industry Consulting Service International (Tampa, FL). If you are not comfortable in your design role, get a more seasoned telecommunications designer to look over your request for proposal. Omissions can be very costly, so don`t save pennies in the design phase that could cost thousands in retrofit.
