and providing the equipment with the ability to resist external
electromagnetic interferences. Before installation of equipment, install the
working ground and protection ground of equipment room. The
communication office of switch adopts the joint grounding mode, and the
permissible value grounding resistance in this case is less than 1 ohms. If
the working ground and protection grounds are ground separately, the
permissible value grounding resistance is less than 3 ohms.

Lightning Protection Check
When the main building or auxiliary facility (such as chimney, antenna and
water tower tank) above of equipment room has, a height is over than 15
m, proper lightning protection measures are required. Common lightning
protection devices are lightning rod, lightning net, lightning strip, lightning
conductor, and lightning arrester. The lightning rod, lightning net and
lighting strips are mainly used to protect buildings. The lightning
conductors are mainly use to protect power electricity wires. The lightning
arresters are used to a protection device that prevents lightning intrusion
waves.

Ensure about lightning protection design, preventive measures against
direct-strike lightning and the incursion of lightning current.

Protection measures against sidestroke high-rise building serves as the
equipment room. For example, the outer metal windows of building
connect to the lightning protection down lead, and horizontal lightning-
protection metal straps are install on the outer surface of wall at certain
intervals along the height of building.

The following lightning protection measures the main building of
equipment room.

1. Anti-lightning nets or anti-lightning straps are installing on parts of
building lightning.
4. Protective objects are such as the chimney, antenna, and water
tower tank, installing the overhead conductor or arrester.
5. The leading wires of lightning protection device have a cross section
area not less than 200 mm2 and spacing not more than 30 m. The
protective grounding devices are against lightning of building have
impulse grounding resistance not more than 10 ohms.
6. Complete the grounding of outdoor cables and metal conducts are
grounding before the entry point of building, and lightning arresters
fixed at the place. Complete the grounding of outdoor overhead cable
is directly leads lay to the equipment room.
7. The metal components of building (such as reinforcement steel bars
inside walls or pillars) used as the down leads for the grounding
against lightning. These down leads are electrically connected for
potential equalization inside the building.

continuity of shielding enclosure of RJ45 shielding connector and
shielding layer of cable. Products are defective if there is no continuity.

Network Connection
Once network cables of appropriate length are ready, make network
connections between foreground equipment and background switch, and
between background server and client and switch.

OMC Ethernet Cable
Both active and standby OMP have network connection to the background
switch for communication between background OMC server and
foreground equipment. OMC Ethernet cable and FTP Enhance Category is 5
shielding data cable. Figure 82 shows its structure.

Ethernet Cables between Server, Client
and Switch
Use a standard straight-through network cable to connect background
server to switch, and another one to connect the client to the switch. Make
network cables of appropriate lengths.

Label Preparation

Label Preparation Requirements
Cable labels on both ends clearly indicate the connection objects of
local and peer end.
Trunk cable indicates location of cable on the BSC and DDF side.
Labels are generally attaching 20 mm away from the root of
connectors, folded rightward tightly.
Number of both ends of a cable consists of one-to-one relationship.
