Santa Clara University sought out CH Reynolds to install Cat 6 cabling throughout its Sobrato Residence Hall comprised of over 150 high-end student apartments.

The project required over 700 data connections using the installed underground conduit structure. CH Reynolds had to be both flexible and creative to leverage the structure that was already in place, and do so within the tight project time frame.

The CH Reynolds team went to work quickly, building out one BDF and 12 IDFs per building. They also installed copper and fiber backbone from each IDF to the MDF. The result delighted Santa Clara students because there are now high-speed Internet connections and readily accessible cable TV hookups in every room, and networked laser printers in each building.
