With government deregulation of the Telecommunications industry, certain responsibilities have fallen to the commercial real estate owner. Under today’s law, the building is responsible for all voice and data cabling infrastructure. This means management of a resource that can get out of hand quickly, considering that each tenant may have their own cabling vendor who follows their own methods. If left unchecked, non-structured / non-standardized cabling installations can lead to any of the following issues:
∙ Service Interruption – Unscheduled vendors performing work in a building riser closet can disrupt telephone and/or WAN service to long-standing tenants, if the building layout is not understood.
∙ Inadequate Facilities – New tenants may be delayed in establishing phone service, due to lack of cable availability at the MPOE (Minimum Point of Entry). This is the point where the building’s responsibility for communication cable begins. If there are no available wires to run service up to the tenant’s floor, then voice/data services will be delayed.
∙ Building Code Violations – Previous tenants could leave behind unused cable runs through fire rated walls, thus requiring removal to keep up to current building standards.
