Network Cable runs estimate seems high, you guys have any input?
Posted on 2011-10-03
I am coordinating a network build on a new building. There are 45 unique runs, each with 4 cables to each unique location, so about 180 or so cables for the entire office. The quotes I have been given are all about 15k-22k, which seems like an awful lot. I would average each run to be 100ft, so 4500 total feet or so of cable with the path panel on one side and jacks on the other. Cable is Riser rated, cate 5e (Cat 6 was too expensinve), and associated patch panels and jacks. The higher end quotes also included certification, the other is just testing wiremap.
