Building Distribution Systems

In each building on the campus Network Services has installed and maintains a vertical and horizontal wiring distribution system. A mixture of fiber and copper technology is utilized depending on the distance and communication service requirements. The standard wired infrastructure for office space calls for one drop for every 100 square foot of office space. A standard drop presents the end user with two auto-sensing 10/100 Ethernet data circuits and one telephone circuit. The data circuits throughout the campus are all connected to electronics and ready to use. Use of the telephone circuit has to be coordinated with the UT Arlington Telecommunications department.
