Telecommunications

There are a vast number of telephone communication companies in which to choose from. Watt Plaza has made the choice somewhat easier through a vendor screening and approval process; building management has established the recommended vendor list (click here) from which tenants can choose.

Bee Communications

Bee Communications is the Building Riser Management Company. They are responsible for overseeing and performing all riser cabling (all cabling from the provider drop-off point through the riser, to the telephone closets, to the backboard in your suite). Why? To ensure that the cabling and data lines remain neatly installed and to avoid interference to existing customer lines from new installations.
Bee Communications can provide you with an estimate to perform the following work: extend the line from the MPOE to the telephone closet/electrical closet on your floor, to the telephone backboard located in your suite.
