Missing a deadline, wasting team effort, successive delay of optimal communication are highly frowned upon by enterprise executives.
Technical risks are the easiest to understand, if not remove all together, but each installation has a specific set of them. We help identify all of them.
The environment (not only weather) can pose intractable, implacable, immovable challenges. It is one thing to know this, it is quite another to find ways to keep it from becoming a problem.
Operational Risk Examples
- Site survey issues such as missing or overlooked infrastructure or components, and inaccurate drawings
- Under-stated or undisclosed LEC requirements
- Compliance with Landlord agreements, including access to bordering tenant spaces and access limitations
Technical Risk Examples
- Pathway planning: pull boxes or sweeping 90’s
- Exterior hand hole size requirements
- Interior Pull box size requirements
- Pull string / mule tape rating requirements
- Aerial mast mounting and support requirements
Environmental Risk Examples
- Sub-surface geology and above ground rating for wind & temperature
- Aerial installations will require lightning strike considerations
- Landscape, pavement, aesthetic restoration responsibilities
- Harmful substances that may be disturbed during install, such as lead or asbestos
Removing Risk begins with removing assumptions
Communication, Documentation and Seeing Around Corners are the big three roles for risk mitigation.
Early, Frequent and granular communication streamlines any project, but especially WAN Ethernet installations with construction requirements.
Documentation is a critical. Email communications, project agreements, field notes and project conversations should all be recorded and appropriatly dispersed immediatly.
Seeing Around Corners
It is all about expierence. Knowing what questions to ask, what tasks to prioritize and which stakeholders to approach (and in which order) is paramount to project success.

Obtain all stakeholder information, project documents and timelines.
Verify LEC Requirements
Verify initial requirements with the LEC Engineer that perfomed initial survey.
Perform boring, electrical, carpenter and telecom surveys, as required.
Review scope and gain scope approval.
Decisions need to be made after requirements have been correctly identified and surveys show actual the work required to meet the requirements.
Perform the tasks required for each portion of the installation through our well defined process.
We are continously learning and adjusting to make our process better. We install hundreds of projects each quarter for our customers…and we use that expierence to make future customer expierences better.
Sometimes you should take the road more traveled.
We know what questions to ask
We know how to reduce risk and accurately budget costs
We install WAN projects weekly across the country
