Connectivity Point installed a Category 6 structured cabling system for the voice and data systems and also installed the audio/visual cabling for the system provider. In addition to cabling installation, Connectivity Point performed the rack-and-stack of voice and data equipment and the installation of patch cords. Providing this service enabled L.L. Bean staff to focus on the activation of equipment and performing the necessary start-up functions.
