Definitions of the levels of
difficulty for installing Cat5e cabling refer to the following
Level 1 — Wall with existing
outlet and conduit to the overhead cable distribution system,
drop ceiling construction.
Level 2 — Wall with existing
outlet in a "fishable" hollow wall or solid walls with surface
mounted system and sufficient capacity for additional cabling.
Drop ceiling or open ceiling architecture with cable support.
This would include most buildings on campus, the key being
"sufficient capacity for additional cabling".
Level 3 — Solid or hollow walls
with no existing wall outlet or one that is at maximum capacity
requiring a new location and materials. Drop ceiling or open
ceiling architecture. This would include most buildings on
campus that require the installation of additional materials to
create a new outlet.
Level 4 — Solid walls and hard
ceilings with no existing outlet or cable pathways. Also
includes buildings with historical architecture that may require
cable pathways that are difficult to navigate, such as attics or
crawl spaces. This could include the older Historical
buildings such as those on north campus.
