Gilbert Public Schools & Campo Verde High School: Low Voltage Solutions in Education
At Corporate Technology Solutions, we specialize in designing and installing voice, data, video, fiber-optic, and structured cabling systems. We serve numerous industries across Phoenix, Tempe, Tucson, and Flagstaff, AZ, including educational buildings and campuses.
Since we started our business in 1998, we have had the pleasure of completing numerous projects for some of Arizona’s largest educational systems, including Gilbert Public Schools. Here’s a look at two separate installations we completed for this school district between 2009 and 2010.
Districtwide Wireless Access Point Deployment
Corporate Technology Solutions contracted directly with Gilbert Public Schools in conjunction with Hewlett Packard to deploy 2,500 wireless access points in 36 schools across the district. The total contract value was $963,000.
As part of the project, we upgraded the schools’ existing infrastructures to Cat6 cables, which support up to 10 Gbps at frequencies of up to 250 MHz. We ran a cable from each access point to the nearest telecommunication closet, where we terminated, tested, and labeled each cable for organizational purposes. We were tasked with retesting and confirming that each school’s fiber-optic backbone system met the 10G requirements for deployment during the installation. We finished off the project by installing wireless access points to improve the Wi-Fi connection in each school.
After the districtwide wireless access point installation, we communicated closely with the Gilbert Public Schools’ IT department to ensure all access points were active and working correctly. Once we signed off on the deployment, we left the district with the technology necessary to meet its students’ and staff members’ ongoing data needs.
Campo Verde High School
Corporate Technology Solutions contracted with Campo Verde High School in Gilbert, AZ, to provide and install a complete in-ceiling structured cabling system. The total contract value was $420,000.
The project involved building out one main telecommunication closet (MTC) and five secondary telecommunication closets (TC). Each TC included open-frame relay racks, cabinets, grounding systems, and cable trays.
Next, we installed an extensive fiber-optic backbone cabling system, which comprised 12MM 50um and 12 SM optical fiber strands feeding from the MTC to each TC. We also provided and installed one 100pr PE 89 from the MTC to each TC.
In addition, the project included installing over 475 work area outlets across six buildings. Each outlet consisted of two data cables and one voice cable. Finally, we provided and installed a coaxial cable television system, which included a 0.500 OSP coaxial backbone, TV hookups, and head-end room build-outs.
Once fully deployed, the new in-ceiling cable support system modernized Campo Verde High School, granting students and staff a seamless technology experience. Our installation was designed for easy expansion and improvement so that the school can complete affordable upgrades in the future.
