1. Gather Detailed Information - This is sometimes the most time consuming part but will make your project flawless.

Planning and project management are key to a successful information transport systems (ITS) cabling installation project.

Taking the time to develop a well-defined plan before a project starts will help deliver a proper installation on time, within budget, and ensure that the job can be performed and meets all customer requirements. Larger and more complex projects require more time to plan. It is difficult to manage loosely defined objectives and the efforts of a large project team over an extended period of time.

2. Conduct a Site Survey - Our cabling installation team lead will visit the installation site and establish a face-to-face greeting.  

The purpose of the survey is to ensure local and national codes are met, ensure all telecommunication standards are met, compare design documents to existing conditions, identify potential conflicts or concerns, define any additional support required, identify situations that will require special equipment or skills, determine the amount of support material required to complete the project, determine the work-hour requirements, including the number and skill level of the cabling installation crew needed, locate storage and staging area space.

3. Project Plan, Scope of Work and Quote - We will put together a comprehensive package including these items for approval.

A strong project plan is essential for the successful completion of any project. This plan should reflect each aspect of the work being completed, project lead time, intermediary goals and any other items that will affect the work being performed in a timely, safe, and efficient manner.

A scope of work and proposal package is a must have before committing to any contractor. These two items are seen as the contractor "repeating" back to you what you are asking of their company. The scope of work is a written document that outlines, in specific detail, the work being completed, the responsibilities of the contractor, time constants, testing, certifications or any other deliverables, site access hours and equipment manufacturing requirements.

The estimate is another very important  document, not just as a pricing tool, but more importantly it will be the binding contract between you and your contractor. Each item on the scope of work document should be clearly line itemed on the estimate. Labor, materials, specific project deliverables, agreed upon pricing, and any work being subcontracted to a third party needs to also be disclosed.

The 5G-powered enterprise will be less constrained by its physical location thanks to vastly improved service delivery capabilities that improve employee and customer engagement. The next generation of wireless technology is closer than you think. 

Over the past few years, a coalition of companies, industry associations and regulatory bodies from across the globe have been working together to advance the regulatory environment, develop and test 5G technologies and establish a broad ecosystem around infrastructure and device readiness.

In 2016, we saw massive progress in the development of key components like antennas and radio chipsets. Additionally, we’ve seen the validation of core mobility technologies – including handovers and multi-cell networking – and witnessed demonstrations of multi-Gbps data rates and low-latency performance. These innovations have brought us closer to a faster, more reliable, and more capable wireless future.

When that future arrives, 5G capabilities will revolutionize our wireless networks. Mobile users will experience networks an order of magnitude faster than what we have today. Thanks to sub-millisecond air latency, the network will feel instantly responsive while simultaneously supporting ten times as many devices at significantly lower power consumption profiles. These are the foundational requirements to enable the rapidly growing Internet of Things (IoT).

As we demonstrate more of the technical innovations of 5G networks, we see more implications for business. We know that next-generation 5G networks will transform companies across industries and geographies. The 5G-powered enterprise will be far less constrained by its physical office location, thanks to vastly improved service delivery capabilities that improve employee and customer engagement through enhanced business communications, new services, and IoT. It all leads to businesses that are more robust, more integrated, and more productive.

It’s happened to all of us at one time or another, you try to check out at a store and you are you are met with an, I’m so sorry; our system is down. Any way you can pay in cash? Or another common scenario, you are calling a business regarding some incorrect charges on your account and the unfortunate reply you hear is: We cannot view your account at the moment; our systems are not cooperating with us. Now flip over to the business owner’s vantage point and imagine the thoughts going through their heads. Having downtime/network failures will cause at least one of the following backlashes:

  1. Loss of potential revenue
  2. Employees will have to manually phone/input every card transaction
  3. Labor Costs
  4. Repair costs


Loss of potential revenue

According to a survey done by, about 78% of consumers prefer to use debit/credit cards, whereas 9% prefer cash. When your network is down you can possibly lose about 78% of consumers who would prefer to use their credit cards. This doesn’t even include those that would prefer to use gift cards, store credit cards, and other methods of payments.

Employees will have to manually phone/input every credit card transaction

Phoning in every credit card transaction can result in a long wait and leave the customers with a very inconvenient feeling, to put it nicely. This can cause distrust between your business and the consumer. Unhappy customers want to voice their frustrations and they have a platform on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and let’s not forget the ever important Yelp. Some customers may just lament their disappointment but others may never return.

Labor Cost

If your employees have jobs that require the network to be fully functional at all at times, then an outage would be a management nightmare. For others, employees are being paid to wait for the network to be restored.

Repair Cost

If your business is not properly prepared for the impact of a network failure then you will have to pay to get it repaired. The cost to repair such outages could range from the hundreds to the thousands of dollars. Not being prepared to handle network failures could be costly.

Network outages are going to happen and can have a huge impact to your business which can inevitably, damage your brand. There is a simple way to mitigate this risk. First Communications is now offering 4G LTE Failover as a premise based solution that uses routing intelligence between the primary connectivity router and the cellular based failover device. This routing intelligence allows the device to detect when the primary connection is no longer working and automatically re-routes pre-defined critical business traffic to the 4G LTE connection. With these services, you can stay connected to your mission critical applications, have a reliable back up, and continue to serve your customers. First Communications offers this as a way to protect your most important assets and most importantly, your brand.

Now that Apple has pronounced the end of the headphone jack, the company is aiming to prove that it can do better than the existing wireless options.

At its much-hyped event in San Francisco on Wednesday, the iPhone maker introduced a cordless earbud that it claims is more power efficient than Bluetooth devices. AirPods, as they're called, have their own communications chip, Apple's Senior Vice President Phil Schiller said on stage.

"It makes no sense to tether ourselves with cables to our mobile devices," Schiller said. "Until someone takes on these challenges, that's what we'll do."

The iPhone 7 will be the first smartphone without a headphone jack, marking Apple's latest effort to strip hardware from devices. There are plenty of Bluetooth options on the market, including from Apple's Beats business, but the products have been criticized for their high price and spotty quality.

Apple is betting that improvements in computing power and wireless communications will usher in a new era of cordless gadgetry. Apple's AirPods include double tap access to Siri and five hours of listening on a single charge, the company said.
