RCC’s team also developed an exception policy memo in order to allow the VA to retain a set of existing IT closets. The RCC team designed the telecommunications systems. This included dual fiber entrance and backbone distribution systems, new cat 6a horizontal cabling infrastructure, and grounding and bonding. The team was also responsible for the design of mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems.
