"Bad cable? Track it down!" How
to identify and repair connectivity issues. Pick up your copy!
A step by step procedure to correct cabling and connectivity issues
complete with recommended tools to certify cable and components.
SDNPA and NetsWork invites you to join us for dinner and a lively
roundtable discussion of procedures, tools, and philosophies to
solving your connectivity problems.
The meeting will be facilitated
by Scott Barrington, NetsWork an expert in connectivity issues. 70%
percent of all network failures occur due to fails in the infrastructure.
Scott will present the latest in tools and diagnostics to help
prevent, locate and solve your network problems with the greatest
ease and as quickly as possible. As part of the discussion we will
talk about the "HP wirescope
350 network tester", "Lecroy newsline network tester",
and "MAP cable management software."
Use an example company that has
1000 employees with both voice and data requirements. According
to recent studies cabling infrastructure accounts for 25% of
the data/voice network cost. Some estimates of investments
in information technology per employee are as high as $8000;
therefore, at 25%, the cost would be $2000 per employee or
in the case of our example company with 1000 employees $2 million
This cost is only compounded as
time goes on. A typical company moves approximately 30% of
its employees each year, with an average labor cost of $250
per move. In our example company this would mean 300 employees
would be relocated at the labor cost of $75,000 per year.
Industry surveys show that 70%
of service calls are cabling related. Furthermore, technicians
spend 80% of their time on a service call searching for the
problem and 20% fixing it. Most of that 80% is spent locating
the end to end connectivity.
This situation worsens when the
connection spans multiple floors or buildings. It is not unusual
for a 40% to 60% reduction in cost of repairs due to the implementation
of a cable testing system, that allows technicians to find
