Torrey Mesa Research Institute Deploys AMP NETCONNECT Fiber Optic and Enhanced Category 5 Cabling

April 18, 2001
April 18, 2001 Torrey Mesa Research Institute is employing AMP NETCONNECT fiber optic and copper communications cabling systems within their research facility.

Tyco Electronics (www.tycoelectronics.com) announced that Torrey Mesa Research Institute is employing AMP NETCONNECT (www.ampnetconnect.com) fiber optic and copper communications cabling systems within their research facility, in La Jolla, California.

Torrey Mesa Research Institute occupies about half of a two-story building encompassing approximately 80,000 square feet, in total. The cabling infrastructure, designed and implemented by Rancho Santa Fe Technology, Inc. (a AMP authorized NETCONNECT Design and Installation (ND&I) contractor) supports both voice and data requirements for the Institute. It utilizes AMP NETCONNECT single-mode and multi-mode fiber optic cabling, as well as the AMP NETCONNECT Enhanced Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) copper wiring and related connector systems.

AMP NETCONNECT Enhanced Category 5 (Cat5e) UTP cabling serves as the "horizontal" cabling, connecting network users to the concentration points in the TRs. Four cables were run to each of the 400 workstations in the facility. About 110 offices and 24 laboratory tech benches were similarly equipped. As well, 250 laboratory benches were cabled with dual data outlets. In all, some 400,000 linear feet (more than 75 miles) of high-speed communications cabling went into the project.
