...are reviewed initially with each new Client; then adapted & maintained continuously to ensure the Client and design team always maintain the same technology vision.

  • Technology Agnosticism

    Technology Agnosticism

    The cabling infrastructure is not designed around any particular technology. Technologies will come and go many times over the life of the cabling system. Therefore, no technology in particular should be a design target.
  • Pathways & Spaces

    Pathways & Spaces

    All cabling pathways and Telecom Rooms are designed to match the maximum capacity of the spaces they serve and have adequate accessibility. All future cabling and technologies can then be added without construction and with minimum business disruption.
  • Ensure Sustainability

    Ensure Sustainability

    No matter how superior a systems capabilities are, it won’t be used if the users don’t trust it and/or the staff cannot operate and administer it effectively. All designs shall provide maximum capabilities that are supportable and sustainable from the viewpoint of the Owner.
  • Provide Telco Level Planning

    Provide Telco Level Planning

    User expectations of a home telephone service are extremely high. This reliability expection is the result of pre-planning, service, and implementation rigor initially designed in by the Telco design engineers. The Telco service technicians are simply propagating the model and updating the documentation. This preplanning model clearly works and is a model every enterprise network should be based on.
  • Certifiable Performance

    Certifiable Performance

    Every cable, copper or optical fiber, is subject to a strict suite of performance criteria that allows for calculable performance and technology support determinism. It is absolutely determinable whether any particular future technology will work or not before you purchase.
  • Commonality of Infrastructure

    Commonality of Infrastructure

    A properly designed uniform structured cabling system is easier to understand, test, and maintain by your IT and maintenance staff than several disparate technologies.
  • Convergence Is The Future

    Convergence Is The Future

    The design and integration of the network electronics must take place before the turn-up of converged systems requiring network transport. Networks are no longer just an overlay system and relatively insignificant.
  • Manufacturer's Warranties

    Manufacturer's Warranties

    When designed and certified strictly per TIA standards, cabling systems typically carry a manufacturer’s warranty of 25 years or greater on both cabling and installation.
  • Manufacturer Agnosticism

    Manufacturer Agnosticism

    Proprietary cabling systems are be avoided. Proprietary products are typically pre-standard versions and may never reach the performance criteria of the next ratified standard. Staying standardized means you’ll never be subject to vendor lock-in.
  • Industry Standards Adherence

    Industry Standards Adherent Designs

    Maintaining that your buildings use a TIA Standards based infrastructure ensures that the technology manufacturers are always designing their products to work with your installed infrastructure and not the reverse.
  • Coverged Infrastructures

    Coverged Infrastructures

    By converging building systems over a common infrastructure from the initial design, funds typically allocated for non-converged conventional systems (intra-building and inter-building parallel conduit, cabling, and termination labor) may be reallocated to build a more robust internetwork from the original construction budget.
  • Centralized Head-End Equipment

    Centralized Head-End Equipment

    Similar to the way it’s unnecessary to know where Google is located, converged services may be hosted/sourced from any well contacted location in or beyond your network. This improves IT response and repair times by putting the equipment wherever the IT staff that maintains them reside (even if it’s outsourced).
  • Collapsed Core

    Collapsed Core

    A collapsed core allows you to save money by leveraging economies of scale and more completely utilizing the head-end hardware. The savings results from the ability to allow multiple remote sites to share fewer, but more robust, head-end hardware as opposed to distributed less robust, under-utilized, hardware units at each site.
  • Transport Supervision

    Transport Supervision

    By using the network as the common transport for all building systems, a single well understood management system could monitor the transport for all systems.
  • Rigorous Drawing Detail

    Rigorous Drawing Detail

    Drawings must have sufficient detail to allow you to legally, and confidently, enforce both the quantitative and qualitative design requirements. The detail should allow for “legally binding determinism” regardless of the Contractor chosen.
  • Onsite & Offsite Administration

    Onsite & Offsite Administration

    All facets of the design and implementation shall as thorough, standards based, and self-documenting as possible to allow for easy port/device differentiation from both onsite and offsite; with docs or without. Electronics administration should be possible from anywhere with IP connectivity.
  • Make an Explicit Technology Baseline

    Make an Explicit Technology Baseline

    The design and final documentation educates your current and future IT staff and provides an explicit and thoughtful technology baseline to continue from with future projects.
  • Provide Continuing ROI

    Provide Continuing ROI

    The Design & documentation shall be sufficient for IT administrators to easily and explicitly delegate tasks remotely to junior staff through WYSIWYG drawings. Saving IT staff time while facilitating the maintenance of the as-built documentation which saves future design fees and construction surprises.
