Unit 6 Exercise 1: Connector Installation
Twisted -Pair Cable * Measure the cable you want to put ends on, using a cable cutter trim off the excess * Use a cable stripper to strip about 1 ½ inches of the jacket from the end, then rotate the stripper around the cable twice to cut through the jacket * Remove the stripper and pull the trimmed jacket from the cable, so that you can see the inner conductors. Separate any visible jacket slitting cords that are present, trim it backto the edge of the jacket. * Untwist all the inner conductor pairs and spread them apart so that you can see each individual conductor * Line up the individual conductors so that the color matches the color-coding standard you are using * Trim the conductors so that the ends are even with each other, make sure that the jacketof the cable will be inside the connector. The total length of the exposed connectors after trimming should be no longer then ½ inch to 0.625 inches * Insert the conductors into the connector, make sure that all conductors line up properly with the pins as they were in the previous step. If they don’t line up, try again. Make sure to do this step carefully, it’s the last one before crimping * Carefully insert the connector and cable into the crimping tool. It has two dies that will press into the connector. Push the pins in the connector into the conductorsinside the connector. After installation is done you should check to make sure all conductors are making contact and that all pins have been crimped properly
Coaxial Cable * Adjust the coaxial cable wire strippers so that the first cut is down the center of the copper wire. Adjust so that the second cut goes through the rubber jacket, but not the wire * After the stripper is properly adjusted…...

...NT1310:Week 1 Telecommunications By: Kenneth Martin You are an IT Network Specialist and are required to develop the design of the company’s telephone system for its new building which will begin construction in a few months. In order to get a background which will help when developing the new system, your supervisor asked you to research the current Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) currently used by the company. You must research the system components and report back to your supervisor , the Telecommunications Manager, within a week. 1. Describe a local land line phone system based on the following Landline Telephone Components: a. Local Loop a local loop is the wired connection from a telephone company's central office in a locality to its customers' telephones at homes and businesses. This connection is usually on a pair of copper wires called twisted pair. The system was originally designed for voice transmission only using analog transmission technology on a single voice channel. Today, your computer's modem makes the conversion between analog signals and digital signals. With Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) or Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), the local loop can carry digital signals directly and at a much higher bandwidth than they do for voice only. b. Central Office In telephone communication in the United States, a central office (CO) is an office in a locality to which subscriber home and business lines are connected on what is called a local...

...Unit 1 Exercise 1 Local Exchange When you send an email from New York to Japan, that email,is sent from your home to the local exchange point over the access network. Once it is in the local exchange it is then sent to aggregating points in different cities and counties over the regional network. Then it is aggregated and transported over the long-haul network so that it reaches the launching point at the country shoreline where it is then sent over the ocean network to Japan. Once there, the email is sent back over the long-haul or regional network to the local exchange and then on to the individual receiving the email. This occurs using mostly fiber optics so the speeds at which all this takes is at the speed of light which is approximately 127,000 miler per second. understand how to interface with the local exchange you must first understand the different networks that comprise it. The first network, being the access network. The access network is the network that connects the individual user or business with the telecommunications system. This is made up of a series of fiber-optic and copper cabling and passive and active equipment that connects you to the local exchange. The central office at the local exchange contains the switching equipment to direct your telephone, data , video, etc. to where it needs to go. The access network is very important to the local exchange since it’s the part that reaches the end user, who is you, and connects them. The metro network,......

...NT1310 Unit 1 Exercise 1 6/17/14 The world is connected more than ever through the use of the internet. From paying bills to shopping or enjoying leisure time on the web; taking advantage of the internet has become second nature to society. Focusing in on one specific type of networking entertainment, online gaming has become a major league sport in its own right. Online gaming allows people from all around the world to connect together to team up or fight against one another. Behind the scenes is where the real magic happens. Between the gamers sits countless devices and hardware not to mention miles and miles of land. Using Call of Duty as an example, each gamer has a copy of the map being played on installed onto their local computer. Every time the gamer moves the direction of their character, their data is sent from their machine to their router, and then out past the demarc point. On the other side of the demarc is where the service provider picks up the data and moves the data from local network to the central office (better known as the local exchange). The central office then sends the data over the MAN (metro area network) or WAN (wide area network) to continue the data to game server. If the data hasn’t reached the server yet (for example the gamer lives in Michigan and the server is in California) the data will be passed over the core (also known as long-haul) network which connects MANs and WANs of different geographies together. On the off......

...Nt1310 9/17/2014 Unit 1 Assignment 1 Cell phones – Cell phones use data networks to communicate over radio frequencies. The frequencies that they use are also shared with television, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. Landline phones – Landline phones use voice networks only because they do not need as much speed as anything else. Normal house phones use approximately 10 MB/s which is all that voice networks handle. SMS/Text messaging – Text messaging uses data networks because they can also be sending media like pictures and video. The other reason that I believe that text messaging uses data networking is because it is faster. Fax machines – Fax machines use voice because they only transmit exactly what is on the paper. It is not being transformed into little packets and sent over the internet to another place; it is just sent from one place to another through the phone line. Pagers – Pagers use the same as cell phones and that is data networks because it is wireless, and does not have to be plugged into anything. Pagers are not that common due to the cell phone industry growing swiftly. VOIP – VOIP as it says in the name of it uses a data network. It uses IP for talking so that the communication is more secure and not many people can tap in as easily as people can over regular phones. Skype/Facetime – Skype and facetime both use data networks to communicate because you are sharing video with somebody else. You are also receiving video, and video cannot be shared over a......

...1. A. A local loop is a loop of copper wire that allows a current to flow from a telephone to the central office and back. It is a dual-wire physical interface that connects a telephone to the central office and are typically referred to as a twisted pair. Many of these pairs are twisted together to make a cable for a local loop to provide multiple connections for multiple phone to interface with the local central office. b. A Central office is a building to which a subscribers home and business lines are connected to a local loop. This office has telecom. Switches to switch calls locally or to a long-distance carrier. A central office is also referred to as a local exchange. The subscribers associated to each central office in their local are identified by the first three digits of their telephone number, however, the last four digits identify the specific subscriber. One central office can support up to 10,000 subscribers with the same three digit prefix. Central offices can also support more than one local exchange. c. Local exchanges or local exchange carriers are telephone companies that provide service within a designated geographical area or an LATA, local access transport area. One LEC serves multiple central offices depending upon the geographical size and the population of the area. d.

Analog Transmission- Analog (or analogue) transmission is a transmission method of conveying voice, data, image, signal or video information using a continuous signal which varies in amplitude, phase, or some other property in proportion to that of a variable. Digital Transmission- Data transmission, digital transmission, or digital communications is the physical transfer of data (a digital bit stream or a digitized analog signal) over a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint communication channel. Sample Rate- Sample rate is the number of samples of audio carried per second, measured in Hz or kHz (one kHz being 1 000 Hz). For example, 44 100samples per second can be expressed as either 44 100 Hz, or 44.1 kHz.  Electromagnetic Wave- Electromagnetic waves are waves which can travel through the vacuum of outer space. Mechanical waves, unlike electromagnetic waves, require the presence of a material medium in order to transport their energy from one location to another.

...wire-mapping test may be all that’s needed. Slightly more expensive devices do wire-map testing in addition to other basic functions, such as TDR length testing. A wire-map tester consists of a remote unit that you attach to the far end of a connection and the battery-operated, handheld main unit that displays the results. Typically, the tester displays various codes to describe the type of faults it finds. In some cases, you can purchase a tester with multiple remote units that are numbered, so that one person can test several connections without constantly traveling back and forth from one end of the connections to the other to move the remote unit. Continuity Testers - A continuity tester is an even simpler and less expensive device than a wire-map tester. It is designed to check a copper cable connection for basic installation problems, such as opens, shorts, and crossed pairs. These devices usually cannot detect more complicated twisted-pair wiring faults such as split pairs, but they are sufficient for basic cable testing, especially for coaxial cables, which have only two conductors that are not easily confused by the installer. Like a wire-map tester, a continuity tester consists of two separate units that you connect to each end of the cable to be tested. In many cases, the two units can snap together for storage and easy testing of patch cables. Fiber-Optic Test Sources - To measure the strength of an optical signal, a signal source must be at the other end of......

Primary sources are actual records or artifacts while secondary sources are writings from knowledgeable people who have studied the topic. 3. Three strategies that help to narrow an internet search are using exact words, using quotations, and using plus or minus signs. 4. A few of the questions researchers should ask is if the source can be trusted, what will the author get out of this publication and do the sources clearly define fact and fiction? 5. Researchers can use documentaries, television, and radio if they are reliable sources; you use quotes and cite the sources. 6. A wiki is a more fact based source while the blog and podcast tend to be more opinion based. 7.
