Panduit Network Infrastructure Essentials (PNIE
v2.0)
4
It is not just just another class!
  • Hosting PNIE Requires
  • A Lab
  • Tools and Equipment
  • Supplies
  • An Academy Classroom (May be the lab)
  • Trained instructors

5
Why Teach PNIE?
  • Approximately 70 of all network problems can be
    traced to poor wiring and patch cords. Layer 1
    management is increasingly more business critical
    and technology based. PNIE prepares students to
    identify layer 1 problems.

6
It is not just about wiring!
  • PNIE Introduces
  • Building automation
  • Industrial automation
  • Voice over IP
  • Power over Ethernet

    provides vendor- neutral certification training.
    Union and Non-Union Telecommunication
    Apprenticeships have grown in popularity in the
    past 4 years.
  • Employment
  • Areas of employment include the following
    Cabling Contractors, Equipment Manufacturers,
    Telephone Companies, Cable-TV Companies, Wireless
    Companies, Specialty Systems

The PNIE Lab Room
22
The PNIE Lab Room
  • The labs for the Panduit Network Infrastructure
    Essentials course include
  • Hands-on labs that increase in difficulty as the
    course progresses
  • Essential hands-on skills required for an
    entry-level cable installer
  • The use of a work area called the Lab Wall
    (Instructor Guide contains instructions on how to
    set up the Lab Wall and tips on conducting labs)

23
Dedicated Lab
  • Ideally, the PNIE Lab Room should be a dedicated
    facility in which students can practice cabling
    skills in an environment that mirrors what they
    will find in the local workplace
  • Similar construction
  • Multiple walls and work areas
  • Can grow over time as ideas and donations accrue
  • Eventually becomes an item of school pridegentle
    competition between schools for best cable lab

Semi-Permanent Lab
  • If the PNIE Lab Room cannot be permanently
    converted to a telecommunications wiring lab,
    then at least a lab wall should be provided for
    the term. Lab walls provide realistic practice of
    cabling tasks.
  • The PNIE Lab Wall is proven
  • Multiple work areas accommodate many students
  • Can grow over time as ideas and donations accrue
  • Used in annual Skills America (VICA)
    Championships
  • Basis for lab wall used in many Union Halls (CWA)

38
Individual Lab Wall
  • Thick plywood sawed into approx. 12x12 inch
    squares (30cm x 30cm)
  • Use for punch down labs and leave other Lab Wall
    open for other student lab activities
  • All labs can be done w/ some creativity

39
Recommendation
  • RECOMMENDATION Use both a full lab wall
    (Semi-permanent or Portable) and the Individual
    Lab Wall (plywood squares)

40
PNIE Lab Equipment
41
PNIE Lab Equipment
  • The PNIE Lab requires equipment of three kinds

42
PNIE Lab Supplies
  • The PNIE Lab requires supplies
  • These are connectors, raceways, labels, and other
    items that are used up or worn out over time and
    which need periodic replenishment. (Panduit makes
    these available to academies at a reduced price.)
  • Materials that are readily available from local
    sources will not be supplied by the course
    sponsor.

43
PNIE Lab Bundles
  • To simplify ordering (one line item for the PO)

    tools for instructors to use in demonstrations
    and a source of ready spares -- RECOMMENDED but
    not required
  • The Consumables bundle contains items that are
    subject to wear and depletion

44
PNIE Lab Bundles(cont.)
  • Schools should assess their needs, then buy one
    each of the Instructor Toolkit and Consumable
    bundles, along with one standard bundle for every
    four students
  • Schools may also need to purchase additional
    equipment locally
  • Optional Fiber Bundles are available to
