NAVY AND MARINE CORPS INTRANET (NMCI) STANDARD CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES
|Publication Date:||14 July 2004|
This document cites and supplements existing Government and Commercial standards and specifications governing architectural, mechanical, and electrical requirements for design of NMCI required Entrance Facilities (EF) and Telecommunications Room (TR) with their respective Main Cross Connect (MC), and Intermediate Cross Connect (IC) equipment. In order to accommodate the rapid advances in equipment and installation practices, the industry standards should form the basis of the designs for telecommunications facilities. These include ANSI / TIA / EIA 569-A, Commercial Building Standard for Telecommunications Pathways and Spaces, ANSI / TIA / EIA 568-B.1, Commercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard, and NFPA 70, National Electric Code. MIL-HDBK-1012/3 Telecommunications Premises Distribution Planning, Design, and Estimating is to be used to provide specific Navy guidance on the methodologies to be followed during design of the facilities, however the designs must incorporate the latest applicable technological requirements in the current industry standards cited.
This document is not to be used for design or planning of regional server farm Facilities or Network Operations Centers (NOC). For regional server farm facilities refer to the NMCI Facilities Field Handbook located under NMCI Information on the EFDSOUTHWESTDIV website (http://www.efdsw.nav
This UFC will be used by the Navy and Marine Corps. The Army and the Air Force do not have or require comparable criteria at this time. \1\ Navy Medical Facilities must comply with the Defense Medical Facilities Office (DMFO) criteria, including UFC 4-510-01, and are not normally part of NMCI. /1/ This UFC was developed by DoN and the NMCI contractor and adopted by both parties. (See paragraph 1-3.)
This UFC provides general guidance and planning information for DoN construction and repair projects that will require Navy/Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) network connections. It also provides information on the planning processes and general practices utilized by the current NMCI Contractor, EDS during initial conversion to NMCI services. All Facilities Engineering Commands, Engineering Field Divisions, Engineering Field Activities, Public Works Commands (PWC), Public Works Detachments (PWD), Resident Officer in Charge of Construction (ROICC) offices, Base Communications Officer (BCO), G6 (USMC BCO), and other concerned parties in the process, should refer to this UFC when designing, planning and/or preparing documentation for new construction or renovation projects that will require operational NMCI support.
