Design of structured wiring
systems has been a major service provided by the Paradise Communications division
for several years. Structured wiring consists of distribution and riser cabling
for voice, data, and video systems. Typical media consists of fiber optic cable,
twisted pair cable, and coaxial cable. Sound engineering for structured wiring systems
also must include the pathways and spaces (i.e., raceways and wiring closets) necessary
to deliver the cables to the outlets. All designs are completed using the guidance
of widely accepted EIA/TIA standards 568, 569, 606, and 607 as well as the BICSI
(Building Industry Consulting Service International) Telecommunications Design Manual
standards. An especially challenging aspect of completing designs in campus environments
is the necessity to adhere to these standards while designing systems to be installed
in existing buildings, many of which are not easily adaptable to standards which
are generally intended for cabling of new buildings.
We have had extensive experience
in Commercial Building and campus-wide infrastructure projects, including fiber
optic, twisted pair, and coaxial cabling plants. Our consultants and Engineers have
been working with firms on Over a 10 years on both Inside and Outside Cable Plant
design and Implementations. We've managed the installation and design of miles
of underground and direct buried fiber optic, voice, and coax cabling. This experience
serves us well in completing similar projects for numerous commercial and educational
facilities. Many of these projects included the design of the underground duct bank
systems, which provide the pathways for the new cabling to be installed between
building and to provide Fiber rings around the campus.
Strategic planning is a process in which many organizations:
Strategic planning projects result in numerous types of studies, including feasibility studies, master planning documents, cost/benefit analyses for prospective implementation of new technologies, and network assessment reviews. These projects have covered a wide variety of topics and aspects of telecommunications networks, including PBX vs. Centrex analyses, data network status reviews, and campus-wide master plans which address all three of the major aspects of telecommunications: voice, data, and video.
Our PBX projects have included
detailed plans and specifications as well as feasibility studies for new PBX installations.
Using our extensive experience in working for telephone companies and commercial
customers, we are able to create detailed engineered project specifications to form
the basis of the RFP to install new PBX systems. Our PBX projects vary in architecture
from small, centralized systems serving single locations to large, distributed campus
environments configured in host-remote architectures.
Over the years we have completed numerous projects involving the installation, upgrade, and replacement of PBX and Voice Mail systems, Call Center Applications and upgrades to existing telephone systems. Our typical involvement starts at the very beginning of the project, when we help the owner decide what features the new system will need to support. After this step we typically create the detailed specifications which form the basis of the RFP to furnish and install the new system. During the bidding process we conduct a technical review meeting in which the vendors have an opportunity to clarify aspects of the specifications. After assisting in the award of the bid, we remain involved during the installation of the system and usually conduct detailed acceptance testing of the system prior to cutover.
Centrex users typically operate on multiple-year contracts with their local exchange carrier to provide central office-based PBX-like features to a multitude of end users. Near the end of the contract, the owner often will request a feasibility study or engineering study to help determine if it would be more beneficial to renew the Centrex contract or to end the contract and purchase a PBX. After detailed discussions to determine the requirements of the new network, we would obtain technical design information and budgetary pricing from the LEC and a variety of PBX vendors to use as inputs into the engineering analysis. The analysis concludes with a recommendation as to the most cost effective method, from both an engineering and financial standpoint.
Typically the purchasing company
requests an on-site inspection of the equipment and facilities of the company to
be purchased. Paradise Communications involvement typically includes a review
of all aspects of the companyís operations, including outside plant facilities and
procedures, records systems, Telephone switching and transmission equipment, grounding
procedures, etc. After on-site reviews are completed, a detailed report is produced
which lists potential problem areas of which the purchasing company should be aware
prior to the purchase of the company.
