Commercial site, demarc was removed during demo. The building owner had someone within their maintenance department tap/splice direct from osp pairs to a 66m block.

Is there regulations for fuses or ground to be in-place? What corrective actions need to be done to correct this? Part/item recommendations?

Thank you,

Call Teleco the DEMARC is theirs to install and maintain, you'll probably have to pay for it since it was removed. CO pairs to a 66 block is no good for anyone.

Ouch. This is a problem. The telco will not have a sense of humor about this, so be prepared to pay big bucks. They won't likely be sympathetic since you or your people should have called them in advance for advice prior to demo. Sorry for the bad news.

Another point: Telco folks don't exactly jump for joy once they find their pairs spliced directly to the 66-blocks. :nono:
How long has the splice been in place?

A long time ago, I was installing a phone system in a building that was at one time a 'Co ' for Bell atlantic(I'm dating myself here!) anyway,
there was one wall about 40 feet long that had nothing but loops of 900 pair underground cable coming up from the ground and going back into the ground, The guy taking over the building says to me, " I want all this stuff removed"

I said , "here's the hacksaw " have a nice day!

about 30 minutes later, after He cut thru 1 cable with sparks flying everywhere, there was about 7 'Bell Atlantic trucks' on the scene.

it took them almost a week to Repair the damage.

He knocked out service to almost the entire business park!!


I can see the light at the end of the tunnel..

I figured the splice and direct punch down to the 66 block is a bad idea. The splices are new, within a few weeks. They used electrical crimp type beanies with the teeth inside (yellow jackets).

My company was called out to locate/tag sdsl circuit and this is when i noticed the splice.

Thanks.

JP, You say the splices are new! Were they done by service provider or building maintenance?

Since this is local to me I might want to put it on the list of places to be cautious of. If it was done by building maintenance I don't even want to park my truck next door and eat lunch.
