Until Now, Federal Law Mandated a Demarc Extension for Every Telecom Circuit Delivered in the U.S. Without Guidelines

Concert Technologies Defines the Standards of Previously Convoluted Terminology and Improper Installation of the Demarc Extension

DULLES, VA, JANUARY 15, 2010 –  Concert Technologies, the nationwide installation and international rollout leader, today announced the launch of its Demarc Extension Nationwide brand and associated website which defines the previously non-existent standards for a demarc extension.

FCC part 68 regulation and federal law mandates every telecommunications circuit to have a demarc extension. This is the critical cabling and equipment that extends a circuit in the building from the local access provider’s demarcation point to the edge customer’s premises equipment. There are thousands of circuits delivered weekly to organizations across the country with each circuit requiring a demarc extension. Without the standardization of terms and installation practices, there is a high risk of negative impact to the delivery, performance and maintenance of critical telecommunications circuits and their access to the internet and other network connections outside of a facility.

“This has been a problem in the industry for over three decades,” said Dennis Mazaris, developer of Demarc Extension Nationwide and President of Concert Technologies. “The lack of industry standards and terms has caused confusion, delayed communication flow and finger pointing, as well as issues in overall service delivery. With a decade and a half of experience deploying technology nationwide and globally, we have taken the initiative in defining and standardizing a demarc extension, the single most critical cabling component within a facility.”

Benefits to the Industry

The Demarc Extension Nationwide initiative standardizes the previous confusion within the telecommunications and technology industry.  The Demarc Extension Nationwide brand was developed for the following purposes:

  • To deliver an accelerated and exceptional level of nationwide service, including international capabilities, for the installation and maintenance of demarc extensions.
  • Eliminate management needs and effort by providing all demarc extension services from a single nationwide provider.
  • To provide clear and concise information to the telecommunications market and facilitate the understanding of specifications and installation practices for the demarc extension.

Telecom: When is There Enough Cable? The Answer is Never!

When you are setting up your business’s physical layout, you know that there are certain points that are important to consider. Yes, you must keep in mind that adequate rest rooms are an important part of the planning, and you know that you have to comply with city fire-codes about the exits. However, you should keep in mind another very important aspect of your layout – the telecommunications layout. Mapping of the phone closet and building DMARC (demarcation point) is very important not only for the current state of your business but for its future growth.

Demarc Extension Definition on Wikipedia

In telecommunications, a demarc extension is the transmission path originating from the interface of the access provider’s side of a telecommunications circuit demarcation point within a premise and ending at the termination point prior to the interface of the edge Customer Premises Equipment (CPE). This may include in-segment equipment, media converters and patch cords as required to complete the circuit’s transmission path to the edge CPE.
