Requirement for Implementing Network in Computer Laboratory
Posted on 2007-10-02
Dear friends !
I am working as IT Professional in an education institute. We are soon going to shift in the new building. There we will have to implement new network. We need to give the estimation about the hardware and network requirements for the COMPUTER LABORATORY. I have worked on servers and even I have intermediate knowledge in networking. BUT...I don't know about some terms related to networking.
I know about cables (UTP CAT 5, 5e and 6) and connectors (RJ 45, RJ11) but I don't know what are those things called in general way that we use to cover the cables (Those Plastic Pipes), the RJ45 Jack in the walls, other things like the cabinet to place the switch, Clips that are used to fix the cables in the wall (Various Size available in the market for fixing clips).
I have to give the estimated requirement but if I don't know what these things are called and in what size and type they are available in the market, then how will I be able to write in my report.
You see I don't know what is that white plastic rod called ?
If you can tell me what are the basic requirements to design a computer lab and if you have some link for this information, then please tell me.
