    SOUND AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNICIAN

    While the Inside Wireman is installing the conduit and power feeders on a project, the S&C Technician is working beside the Wireman, installing the network of low voltage cabling that is used for video, voice and data or other low voltage signaling.  

    While most installations are in buildings that are partially or fully enclosed to protect from sun, wind and rain, these installations often occur before air conditioning, heat or permanent light fixtures have been installed in the buildings.

    Backbone voice and data cables are routed between the entrance facility, where communications signals enter a building, to equipment and telephone rooms. Voice and data horizontal cables are routed between telephone or equipment rooms and individual workstations throughout the building.

    Equipment rooms often contain energized equipment such as hubs, file servers or telephone switches. These devices are configured and connected to the communications network that serves the building, and must not be interrupted.

    The S&C Technician installs voice and data outlets at workstations. In addition, they install punch down blocks and cross connects in telephone rooms. These may be wall-mounted or rack-mounted, and must be grouped and identified according to specific installation standards. Whether the work is in new construction or in existing office or manufacturing space, the IBEW-NECA craftsperson takes pride in the work he or she has and can performed.

    The electrical training ALLIANCE trains to TIA/EIA and other industry standards. The electrical training ALLIANCE also partners with the major manufacturers in the video, voice and data industry to assure training in the latest technologies including training for manufacturers warranted installs.
