Large Data Cabling Jobs – Cost Estimator

 

   To begin estimating your network or phone cabling installation (only for Dallas-Fort Worth, North Texas Region), first determine the location and number of all of the “drops” or distinct connections needed.  Consider the following items when working out your count: All needed telephone and network connections, fax connections, connections in conference rooms, kitchen telephones, stand alone printer installations, warehouses, or elsewhere where one-offs or additional drops may be needed. Giving your wiring contractor a print or graphic of a floor plan with all of these locations marked would be ideal.

 

   Assuming standard “drop ceiling” construction*, multiply the number of connections or “drops” by $125/drop (for Category 5 cabling/parts) and $160/drop (for Category 6 cabling/parts). (Some telephone systems can use a cheaper (Cat3) cabling, but it is rarely requested.)

 

   So, assuming the most ideal construction conditions*, Cat5/Cat6 cabling, and no additional hardware or labor necessary, the following table below lists good initial budgetary cost numbers for the cabling portion of the installation.

*Construction impediments can include but are not limited to: brick construction, lack of attic/ceiling space, sheet rock or other hard ceilings, office cubicles, necessity of plenum rated cabling, and many others. Additional labor or hardware charges may be required.

Additional Considerations…

 

Typically, data cabling installations will have a point of central termination. At this central point, clients often have differing requirements, so the hardware packages listed below may not be applicable in your firm’s situation. If you do not require this type of additional hardware, you may be able to use the numbers above for budgetary purposes. (If a precise estimate is needed, please call to schedule a facility walk-through. 214-379-4200)

After having determined the correct number of “drops”, one should also consider the other additional hardware components that will be needed to complete the job in an organized and professional way. Depending on your termination point’s size, location, and requirements, you may need one or more of the following: Wall mount rack, patch panel, rack shelf, power distribution unit (not pictured), cable management units, patch cables, and installation of this and other equipment if needed, etc.

Please remember that for an exact estimate a facility walk-through will likely be necessary.
