Cabling done by DBS Communications for Wyse Advertising in Cleveland

DESIGN: The Wyse Advertising offices had approximately 125 workstations on the main floor of a historic building in downtown Cleveland that had been vacant for more than 10 years. The construction project began when the building was gutted down to its outside, load‐bearing walls and support columns. The main floor had 17‐foot high ceilings.
OBSTACLES OVERCOME: Due to the unique installation environment, the cabling scope of work’s level of difficulty was extremely high. Each office needed cabling, but without drop ceiling and standard pathways, it was nearly impossible to get the wires to the workstation locations without exposing the wires and ruining the aesthetic look of the office.
The cabling foreman accepted the challenge and created solutions to wire all of the offices without leaving a single wire exposed. All wiring was run through cable trays, down chimneys, underneath eaves, and anywhere that could conceal the wires. Without this creativity and skill level, the installation would not have been acceptable to the customer or the overall appearance of the

SAFETY: The foreman ran his crews efficiently and with safety as the primary concern. Weekly safety meetings were attended and safety checks were regularly completed for each crew.
THE NUTS & BOLTS: The Wyse floor plan had a series of departmental areas spread throughout the main floor. Those areas included administration, IT, reception, design, creative, and marketing. All areas were wired back to one main closet located in the IT department. Overall, this cabling infrastructure provided Wyse Advertising a solid platform for its current technology needs and flexibility for future technologies that will be used in the
years to come. This project was implemented with the above in mind while being as cost‐competitive as possible in order to win the project and stay profitable.

DBS Communications closed 2010 on a hugely positive note. We acquired many new accounts through the year via increased focus to customer relations and sales, but we also feel that its a significant sign of our economy rebounding.
The Cleveland area has found in recent years that its overdue to upgrade legacy systems. We’re looking toward an even better 2011 as we help Northeast Ohio make this transition.
