Festivities begin at 6 p.m. with the televised show running from 7 – 8 p.m. The Monument light-up will occur at approximately 7:45 p.m.

    Semi-automated cable installation tools help to ensure a uniform tensioning
    and a flush cut-off of extra material. The permanent link consists of upp to 90 meters of Cat6 horizontal cabling and one Cat6 connection at each
    end. Apart from this you also have to identify how big is your area of coverage and whom it should supply and to whom not.
