Cable Installation & Protection Practices


This course takes a broad look at pathway design and cable installation. Should cable be protected? If so, what are the industry standard practices that should be followed? What is the pulling force on a cable? These and more questions are answered during this course.  

This presentation was originally delivered as part of the September 2021 BICSI vICT Forum.
