Home Information Network Cabling

Information Network Cabling

In this skill contest, participants compete in designing, installing, and testing telecommunications networks. Each competitor receives one broad task, in which he or she should perform the entire data cabling process from the telecommunications operator to the computer at home or in the office. The work involves designing, realising, and testing optical fibre and local area network interfaces, as well as the construction of a cable television network.

A competitor’s craftsmanship is measured in particular through the connection of different types of cables to other cables in interfaces, as well as cable termination in interface panels or boxes – for example, connecting two optical fibres to each other through welding or the termination of an optical fibre in an optical fibre panel.
