Technical Assistance Center

TAC Unit - our technical assistance center

Featuring ICN’s Technical Assistance Center

With over 70 years of combined experience, ICN’s Technical Assistance Center provides strong expertise with vertical and horizontal inside plant designs and cable plant services from wiring closets to inside wiring of fiber and copper infrastructures.

Our Standards

ICN’s TACUnit is highly experienced in the TIA/EIA* Structured Cabling Standards, bringing the latest knowledge to our customers. This standard addresses commercial building cabling for telecommunications products and services.

* Telecommunications Industry Association/Electronic Industries Alliance

Forward Thinking

Every building’s infrastructure is different and each site evaluation includes reviewing existing pathways for Category 5e, Category 6 and Category 6A cabling to support current and future services. By forecasting future needs, ICN’s TACUnit can cable an environment to support a large variety of communication applications.

Reduce Future Downtime

A data closet full of unorganized cables can cause additional downtime and further delays. ICN can recommend network rack location, cabling basket system solutions, cable types, and unique labeling schemes. Once a telecom closet is organized, it is easier to troubleshoot when needed.

Let our TAC team plan, design, install and maintain all your LAN and WAN infrastructure needs.
