Uplink cable routing

The hackspace has an uplink to the rack in the office in Engage. This cable goes up two flights of stairs, through the wall into the Engage kitchen, up into the ceiling, then back down into the Engage office. The cable is a single Cat5e, there is a green string to help with wiring an additional cable at a later date.

Kitchen ceiling route notes

Some basic notes to help us find the cable route in the ceiling if we need it.

Hop 1: The first hop goes through the one tile, then skips 3 tiles, and turns 90 degrees left above the forth tile.


Hop 2: The second hop skips 6 tiles and, above the tile just before a light fitting turns 90 degrees right.




Hop 3: The third hop skips 6 tiles and then turns about 45degrees left.


Hop 4: The forth hop takes the cable into the lower ceiling of the Engage office.
