It’s probably the least glamorous part of information technology – the conduits and cables hidden behind walls, in floors and above ceilings; unseen by end users. Historically viewed as a “utility”, low-voltage cabling and supporting conduits were seen as expenses to be minimized. However, with the convergence of voice, data, AV, security and other emerging building systems, the low-voltage physical infrastructure has become a critical link in the delivery of reliable high-performance business services. Moving forward, both wired and wireless components of the physical infrastructure will become even more critical and need to be even more flexible in order to accommodate constantly increasing transmission speeds and bandwidth requirements.
PLANNET’s Physical Infrastructure Practice is comprised of highly skilled and credentialled professionals (i.e., RCDD, OSP, RTPM, ESS, DCDC, CAD/BIM, etc.) who adhere to industry best practices as prescribed by BICSI, TIA, NFPA and other codes and standards organizations. Our PLANNET infrastructure team specializes in designing and managing the implementation of the physical infrastructure for new construction, tenant improvements and renovations. We strive to maximize our clients’ investment in technology over the span of time they occupy facilities, enabling the seamless integration of all low-voltage technologies on converged network platforms.
