Demarc Extension Video

As mandated by federal law, all telecommunications carriers must hand off their telecom circuits to each subscriber, leaving their service at the building’s demarcation point, which is usually a ground floor telecom room. From this point, the demarc extension is the subscriber’s responsibility, extending their telecommunications circuit to their suite or network room, and begin using the telecom circuit.

Ethernet Site Readiness - Everything You Need to Know

Summary: Metro Ethernet, or Carrier Ethernet, offers a cost-effective way to ensure network performance for today’s business technology: cloud services, VoIP, video conferencing, backup and recovery, etc. The transition can be made painlessly when you’re familiar with the process and the carrier’s readiness requirements. Unfortunately, lack of experience on the part of customers, building staff and site readiness personnel often results in many site visits, inadequate site preparation and unexpectedly long delays. And service providers typically charge for those additional visits.

How To Hack An Optical Cable in Your Building

Summary: This video shows how easy it is for potential hackers to hack into optical fiber & download the information freely. There are many locations where the physical protection of a fiber is very poor, and where the naked fiber is accessible for hacking. Simple optical taps costing less than $500 can be used to access the data which is then freely accessible. More sophisticated hacking methods can fool attenuation monitoring tools. the data needs to be encrypted for protection. However, many corporations believe that optical fiber is intrinsically secure.
