Bringing a Healthcare Facility Into the Future


Wesco Helps Healthcare System Retrofit Its Headquarters With a Future-Ready Cabling Solution

One of the nation’s largest nonprofit healthcare systems needed to update its headquarters facility to meet changing IT and security requirements. When designing the video surveillance system, the organization saw that its existing cabling infrastructure would not allow for proper camera placement.

Because adding individual distribution frame (IDF) closets to the facility would have been costly, the organization needed cable runs exceeding the 100-meter limitation of legacy cabling standards.

Utility Grade Infrastructure: Beyond Standards Reach and Performance for Reliability

Wesco’s Utility Grade Infrastructure (UTG) delivered the extended distances the healthcare system needed. The UTG framework provides guaranteed performance and bandwidth at distances up to 185 meters and includes a unique rating system and industry-first testing protocols for verified application assurance. The healthcare system decided to utilize UTG20 throughout its facility to gain a future-ready infrastructure for evolving technologies.

Leveraging Utility Grade Infrastructure to Deliver Next-Generation Results

UTG solutions have been UL-verified to meet or exceed current industry standards and by utilizing UTG, the customer reaps the benefits of:

  • A future-ready infrastructure solution
  • Fully compliant category cabling that meets all Cat 6 and 6A requirements (ANSI and TIA)
  • The most comprehensively tested cable in the industry
  • Performance beyond standards providing guaranteed results

By leveraging UTG, Wesco not only met the healthcare system’s requirement but allowed the organization to continue to use the same world-class provider’s products who are one of Wesco’s UTG supplier partners. UTG-certified installers and field testing and measurement ensured a successful project outcome.
