BROCADE – San Jose, CA
When tasked with building out one data center and two seven-story 600,000 square foot office buildings for networking solutions giant Brocade, CH Reynolds didn’t back down from the project involving three structures that would seem to be three times the headache.
This project presented great complexity in the architecture and cable pathway in an open-air environment. CH Reynolds also faced the added challenge of working with two different general contractors.
CH Reynolds installed two Cat6A cables to over 2500 locations terminated in Systimax 360 patch panels. This also required installation of backbond utilizing 144-strand sm/144-strand mm 50 u laser speed 550 with 7800 fusions and 100 pair Cat 3 PE89 cable. In the end, CH Reynolds installed approximately 65,000 patch cords. With a six-month schedule and partial move-in at the four-month and five-month intervals, CH Reynolds was able to work closely with all consultants to complete the project on time.
