In the past, developers and property owners only needed to supply electricity, plumbing, and heating to workplaces, leaving tenants to design their offices to their own technical specifications.

Today, commercial builders need to meet rapidly evolving connectivity demands for advanced occupant and visitor applications and use cases. Are you ready?

Today, commercial builders need to meet rapidly evolving connectivity demands

There are over 6.2 million commercial buildings in the U.S., yet according to a survey of the International Association of Fire Chiefs, in a large percentage of buildings, critical communication can’t happen. That’s a big problem. Public safety and cellular communications are two of the most critical requirements developers and property owners need to focus on today. For one, it saves lives.

In fact, the FCC estimates that a one-minute improvement for a 9-1-1 response time would save 10,000 lives in the United States each year.

 You can avoid significant costs by understanding and complying with mandated public safety and cellular communications related codes ahead of time.
