Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to install customer cable infrastructure. It involves selecting cable route, setting up cable dispensers, and placing and securing cable.

It applies to individuals who work in technical roles and who may be required to do new installations or to upgrade existing networks in domestic, commercial and industrial premises. Communications applications include digital and analog, telephony, data, video, digital broadcasting, computer networks, local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs) and multimedia.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory and certification requirements apply to telecommunications systems. All customer cabling work in the telecommunications, fire, security and data industries must be performed by a registered cabler. All cablers are required to register with an Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) accredited registrar.

Unit Sector

Telecommunications – Cabling

Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENT 

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA 

Elements describe the essentialoutcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Prepare for task and identify cable route

1.1 Arrange access to site according to customer instructions, required procedures and site security arrangements

1.2 Notify appropriate personnel of identified safety hazards at cabling worksite

1.3 Plan cable route, identifying and avoiding other services and remote power feeding services operating at above telecommunications network voltage (TNV) on site in commercial buildings

1.4 Select cable route to maintain required clearances and segregations according to cable plan and relevant industry standards

1.5 Confirm cable route and requirements with customer

1.6 Select tools, equipment and cables for installation of support system from work specifications and schedules

2. Set-up cable dispensers

2.1 Determine feeder locations to minimise wastage of cable and efficiency

2.2 Set-up feeders in locations that provide ease of access during hauling of cable

2.3 Secure feeder locations to minimise safety risks during installation

2.4 Label hauling end of cable with unique identifier prior to placement

3. Install cable

3.1 Haul and place cable in safe manner within clearances required by industry standards, and manufacturer and work specifications

3.2 Place cable in neat, orderly and methodical manner, allowing sufficient excess at cable ends to facilitate termination

3.3 Inspect cable to maintain separations according to regulations

3.4 Install barriers to achieve separations where sufficient spatial separation cannot be met with other services

3.5 Install and trim, securing anchors promptly to restrain cable movement according to manufacturer specifications

4. Complete cable installation

4.1 Update records and cable plans promptly and accurately

4.2 Store records and plans according to customer and enterprise requirements

4.3 Remove installation waste and debris from worksite and dispose of according to environmental requirements to maintain safe worksite conditions
