Requirements

Before Wireless Access Points can be installed, we need the design and construction phases to be completed.

Design Phase

  • d1. The construction project manager will provide CAD drawings in dwg format to the wireless team.
  • d2. The construction project manager will schedule a meeting with wireless team to discuss rooms with 25+ seats, VIP areas, and ceiling material. This step should occur one to two weeks after d1.
  • d3. The wireless team will create and provide predictive site survey for wireless access point (WAP) placements to construction project manager.  This step should occur one to two weeks after d2.
  • d4. The construction project manager will review and incorporate OIT Construction Standards.
    • Construction_Standards_Final  > 27 21 33 Data Communications Wireless ACCESS POINTS > 3.01 EXECUTION
  • d5. The construction project manager will provide updated CAD drawings with WAP placements to the wireless team.
  • d6. The wireless team will verify placements and submit changes if needed to the construction project manager.

Construction Phase

OIT construction coordinator will ensure the following are completed:

  • c1. Confirm the project is following our construction standards.

    • including but not limited to Two CAT6A lines per WAP, enclosures, grounding, etc...

  • c2. Coordinate a box walk with the wireless team and construction project manager once internal framing is mostly completed. 
  • c3. Provide a date by when the wireless team needs to submit all WLAN quotes.
  • c4. The wireless team will provide the quotes to the OIT construction coordinator by the date provided in c2.
  • c5. Provide a SpeedType and date by when the wireless team needs to order all WLAN quotes.
  • c6. The wireless team will order the quotes and provide receipts to OIT construction coordinator by the date provided in c4.
    • Steps c5 and c6 can be skipped if the construction project manager orders the quotes provided by the wireless team.
  • c7. Provide a date to the wireless team when the wired lines are pulled to proper locations.
  • c8. Coordinate a box walk with the wireless team and construction project manager. 
  • c9. Provide a date to the wireless team when the terminated lines and enclosures are finished.
  • c10. Confirm ethernet lines have been terminated, tested and labeled.
  • c11. Confirm total completion of MDF and IDF; power, lighting, HVAC, racks, cable trays, floor, ceiling, walls, etc.
  • c12. Confirm MDF and IDFs doors are secured with a key and the door is not propped open.
  • c13. Confirm switches are racked, powered up and dual connected with a diverse path to both OIT Data Centers.
  • c14. Confirm WAP switch ports are configured; 1Gbps or NBaseT ports, descriptions, LLDP and POE+, etc.
  • c15. Confirm WAP patch panel ports are patched to switches.
  • c16. Confirm we have received the patch panel port label information for each WAP that will be connected.
  • c17. Confirm painting is done.

WAP Install Phase

  • i1. OIT construction coordinator will verify all steps of the construction phase above are completed before starting WAP Install Phase.
  • i2. The wireless team will prep and provision WAPs once received.
  • i3. The wireless team will install all indoor WAPs.
  • i4. The construction project manager will coordinate with the wireless team to assist in installing all outdoor WAPs.
  • i5. The wireless team will test WAP functionality and preformance.

Occupancy Phase

  • o1. OIT construction coordinator will provide the target date of occupancy to the wireless team.
  • o2. The wireless team will add move in day to their calendars and be ready to respond to incidents.
  • o3. The construction project manager will provide as-builts to the wireless team.
  • o4. The wireless team will perform an active site survey to verify wireless coverage.
  • o5. The wireless team will do the following:
    • Add or update plans in Airwaves, Ekahau, and OIT file areas.
