Enterprise Solutions: Installation of New Category 6 Wiring, IT Closet and Configuration with Multi-floor Cabling for New Build Out
A complete new build out of the 7th floor required IBC to install all new 6 network wiring, and connect the existing 5th & 6th floor IT closets to the new 7th floor IT closet via 12 strand fiber. Remodeling and relocating employees to the 7th floor also necessitated new configurations and additional cabling on all three floors. By reusing existing cabling and adding new cabling as needed IBC was able to offer a very cost effective solution.
Old Second National Bank and 25 Suburban Locations
Bank: Wired & Updated Multiple Site with Client Expansion over 20 Years
As this long-time client has expanded locations over the years, IBC has had the opportunity keep all their locations connected by updating and installing new wiring in over twenty-five locations. IBC started wiring these bank locations in the early 1990's when their network consisted of RG6/59 coax cable. As technology evolved and their communication needs expanded, IBC was always there to wire the main bank as well as every new branch throughout the suburbs.
When the bank purchased a new VoIP phone system, IBC added new Cat 6 cable to upgrade every site location in order to connect all sites with VoIP. IBC installed data cabling throughout many locations. Recent projects include wiring the Elk Grove Village build-out with 20 voice and data cables, and wiring recently acquired office space with 14 work station consisting of two cat 6 voice and data cables each, or 24 cables. IBC installed six conductor T1 cables for a new server cabinet in the primary Aurora bank location.
“Our bank uses IBC for all of our cabling needs. We have been a client for many years and have been extremely pleased with the high level of service they have provided us. Their work is always done very professionally and in a timely manner. They are also very accommodating to our last-minute changes during the new construction of our branches. We will continue to work with IBC for all future and existing cabling needs.” - Old Second National Bank of Aurora, Aurora, IL
