A recent 18 wire install, with two 12 port patch panels. This customer has 9 jack locations with two CAT5 runs at each jack location. Top and bottom jack numbers match, the top jacks terminate to the left 12 port panel, while the bottom jacks terminate to the right panel. Due to the size of the office, the runs were very easy and quick to install. This install took about 4 1/2 to 5 hours to complete, including testing and labeling of all jacks.
There was only 2 minor issues involved in this install. One issue was that one of the walls that had to be snaked down had cross beams. The wall was channeled, as shown in the below images below, to get around that cross beam. The second issue was that one of the walls where one of the jacks is going to is a corner with 2 concrete walls, so there is no means to snake down that wall. That wire will need to be put into wire molding on a future visit when the router and switches are installed.
