Communications Services range from computer networking to telephone, television to audio
Communications Services is a broad term related to the transmission of electronic data. Typically communications services covers telecommunications, entertainment and media, and Internet/Web services. At Grid35, we have been providing communications services related support to medical practices in Orange County for over seven years. While many firms focus on a specific field, we pride ourselves on the ability to fulfill any of our client’s needs under one invoice, removing unnecessary billing and personnel complexities.

- Computers are usually networked in order to access resources on a server.
- Even if an office does not have a server, computers are commonly networked through a router at a central location in order to share internet.
- Poor quality cabling does not just mean poor performance. If the proper cabling is not used it can function as an accelerant in a fire.
- Grid35 has the knowledge and experience to run cables in buildings during or after construction, and the skills to maintain your network.
Telephone Services (POTS)
- Phone lines come from the telephone company to the building MPOE (Minimum Point of Entry). After that it is your responsibility.
- Most offices utilize a phone system. Phone systems come from companies such as Avaya and are similar to a computer, controlling all the incoming and outgoing calls.
- Phones can use the same type of cabling (but not the same cable) as computer networks, reducing costs.
- Modern phone systems use VoIP, and internet/computer-based communication method.
- Our technicians have experience ranging from a small 5 outlet office to full-scale enterprise setups involving thousands of distribution points.
- Coaxial Cable is commonly used for distributing cable TV.
- Cable companies often run their own cabling to either a central distribution location or directly to each TV (a “homerun”).
- In medical buildings, the cheap cabling that cable companies often use can have insufficient shielding for the high frequency electro-magnetic devices that doctors use.
- Cable companies contract out to third parties to install their cable lines in your office, and the individual installers often have no knowledge of your specific requirements.
- Grid35 can work with cable installers to ensure that the lines are run correctly, and with the proper medical-grade cabling.
- Music isn’t just great to have in the background, it’s a fact that it provides therapeutic effects.
- Speakers can be hidden in a ceiling or wall, or mounted in corners.
- Most speaker wire is a high quality copper, but different types of insulation provide superior performance in medical applications.
- Music is distributed at a central location by an amplifier with an audio source (usually a radio or CD player).
- Satellite radio stations provide targeted music stations, ad free, and crystal clear – for a small monthly fee.
- Grid35Med+ can install a whole-office audio solution, no matter the size.
