Mackenzie Complex Dorm Room Data Re-Cabling

There are approximately 800 dorm rooms in Mackenzie split between 4 areas (North, South, East, and West).
All rooms had one 10mbps Cat3 data connection for over 10 years.
A team of six students (Including myself) and 2 professional staff did the following upgrades:

  • Double rooms -> two 100mbps Cat5e data connections
  • Large single rooms -> two 100mbps Cat5e data connections
  • Small single rooms -> one 100mbps Cat5e data connection
  • Wherever available, single rooms received up to two 1Gbps data connections
