Streamlining Communication and Data Transmission
As part of a recent renovation of three floors, Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) was in need of a technology retrofit. CCC enhanced client confidentiality through the recent integration of a Qt Sound Masking System, installed and calibrated by DGI Technologies. The sound masking system is comprised of three Qt 600 control modules and over 400 sound masking emitters, which allow for precise control over multiple zones on each floor.
DGI Technologies recommended integrating CCC’s preexisting telephone system (which provided overhead paging on three of six occupied floors) into working within the Qt Sound Masking System’s architecture. The paging system’s pre-existing wiring was redirected into the sound masking system’s output channel, allowing for broadcast messaging across all six floors of facility space.
Additionally, DGI Technologies provided a full suite of design/build structured wiring services, including a Panduit/General Category 6E Information Transport System allowing for data transfer within the renovated space. This new infrastructure supports both voice and data communications, complete with a fiber optic cabling upgrade from 1GB to 10GB across CCC’s six floors. Support and maintenance is accomplished through three additional data distribution spaces located on each newly wired floor, providing discrete storage and added security of data infrastructure.
“DGI wired our Computer Room in 2007 and everyone that tours the room comments on how neat the cabling looks, even after six years. They’ve also handled the cabling on six floor renovations over the years. DGI worked closely with me to accurately prepare the installation plan and bill of materials, and quickly and professionally accommodated any changes that came up after construction was underway. We recently completed a migration of our phone system equipment from one floor to another and it involved replacing twenty year old wiring and a prior setup that required expensive support from our phone system provider with a fully traceable, easy to maintain wiring plan that can be managed by our own staff, saving us considerable expense in the long run. With DGI, I get a true partner that acts like an extension of my own team. They’ve taken the time to understand how I want things done and they always meet or exceed my expectations. DGI provides cabling that is top quality, always works, and looks good too!”
