Computer relocation is the process whereby you have to move the computers and the peripheral devices after you might into a new office. For there to be a proper exchange of data and files withing an office you have to have a proper computer network established. Some of the peripheral devices that are required for this include:
• Cat 6 cables
• Punch panel
Computers are very important components for any office as they help you in a lot of different ways such as:
• They help you store a lot of data that is very important for the daily running of your organization
• Help you access new information as you’re able to search on the internet
• Helps you budget as it has software that makes sure your organization is doing fine without overspending
Here you’ll see special instructions on how we relocate computers:
• You'll have to shut down the computers first. After that, you'll have to switch off the router that is giving them internet access. The printer is also shut down in the process as well as any other peripheral device. After that, you'll switch off the power supply.
• This is followed by removing the mounted cabinet and disconnecting all the points that have been terminated ta the punch panel.
• You'll also have to open the trunking and remove the cat 6 copper cables that were used to connect the different terminals. This is economical since you'll not have to buy new wires for cabling as these will serve the purpose as long as they're in good shape. You'll then remove the metallic trunking.
After this, you'll now have to re-install the computer system again.
• First, you'll have to lay the trunking properly so that you can have a tunnel to run the cables. After that, you'll have to run the cat six cables to the different terminals in the new office space. You'll have to use a cable tracer to label the different cables that are there for easier identification. After that, you'll have to terminate one end of the cables to the module while the other end is terminated on the punch panel. This is done after mounting the cabinet. After you're through with this, you'll have to test the continuity of the points using a LAN tester to make sure that you have terminated the points properly.
• After this, you'll put back your router into position and connect it to the switch so that it can give internet to the network. You'll also have to place back the printer to its new position.
• After this, we'll place the computers to their new stations. And connect them to the modules through patch codes depending on the distance. After this, you'll have to boot power all the devices. You'll start the computers and reconfigure the them to make sure that they’re on the same network.
