Job is not complete, and additional photos may be added soon.
This job entailed installing 4 door phones, overhead paging, configuring about 6 VoIP phones that the customer provided, as well as installing a PoE switch that the customer provided. I also will be removing the FiOS router and replacing it with an actual router. I am uncertain of if we will use the Cisco/Linksys E1550 that the customer provided, or if we will go with an E2500, or an SRP router yet. I guess it depends on how well the E1550 handles the network.
Everything was supposed to be prewired, but of course the furthest door from the network room was not wired, and the guy who wired the door phone wiring just left everything in the drop ceilings, leaving the hard part (snaking down the walls and to the outside) for me to handle.
