Router and switch were provided by the customer, and were moved from the old office in the same building. I did not document the model number for these devices.
- Linksys PAP2 - VoIP ATA used for door phone to hot dial VoIP phones.
- Viking RC2-A Relay - used to control door release
- Viking E20-B door phone (connected to PAP2)
- 12 port CAT6 patch panel (wiring is CAT5, boss just placed order incorrectly)
Also not shown - New door release + power supply.
The customer did not want to place their network equipment into a closet, so it is visible inside the office, so special attention was given to ensure that the network was installed neatly, and remains neat. All patch cords have been labeled with the number corresponding to their position on the patch panel since tracing patch cords will be difficult with them mounted this way with out cutting all of the zip-ties and making it a mess.
Unfortunately due to time constraints (this small network took 2 1/2 days to build), the completion of the construction (plasterers, painters, movers), and other minor factors the power cord end of things is not as neat and pretty (and thus was not photographed, but that is something that the customer can clean up on their own once they move into the office - either by having an electrician installing an outlet higher up on the wall near the network equipment, or with an extension cord.
