What was really shocking was every jack was different.

I recently did an installation that was like that and I had to take apart every jack to re-wire it correctly.

I'm a thief! Sparkie installed three data jacks for about a quarter of what I would have. This is what I found up in the ceiling when they had to call me because they couldn't get their computers to connect. And those two cables at the upper right are stranded patch cord cable and were punched down on two of the jacks... like at that point it even mattered.

Hal,
That's a Sparky brand 4 port hub.

I had a call to install a partner a few weeks back

"the cabling has all been done , you just need to do the install"

they show me around the office 7 locations then they show me where they want the system

Hmm...why is there only one 4 pair dropping down from the ceiling


you guessed it same crap but not as neat I'll see if I can find the pictures

Laughing my freaking head off!!!
Bill Dance could do better, might catch a Bass while were jigging for cable.
I guess they make money on that trash.
I,m going to start working on my Advanced Ninja Techniques videos.

It is good that there is a place like this, where real Telephone Men of Iron can come togeteher and share Sparkie's deep dark secrets. That trick with the wire nuts will really come in handy. Take one old wire and charge $375.00, Even after Gradgitating from the Internet Cat 5 wiring school of Telephoey, I had never seen that great trick.  I will cherish it forever!

The following pictures are from Arthur P. Bloom who commented:

The existing eq. is lying on its side under a blanket of dirt and dust, in a cabinet under a desk. I have pre-wired the site with all new wires and jacks, created a new MDF in the basement, and tomorrow I will return to the scene with a CG and do a hot move of all the phone and data stuff. Photos of the "after" to follow.

I'm surprised that Partner is still working after running in that position. Has to be cooked from no air flow bottom to top. See that Avaya- that's what you get for selling to end users!

Here is one we started on this week. Customer took over a building after a bankruptcy and we have been toning, refishing and reterminating for hours upon hours this week. This video is what we started with. I will post a follow up at the beginning of next week, with a few improvements!

Here's a beauty we had to work on a couple of weeks ago.  Yep, most of that is fiber!
