Demarc extension services

iTECH2 Installs can help get your organization online by providing a demarc extension, a routine service needed by many businesses. With itech2’s national installation network, we can perform demarc extensions nationwide at multiple jobs at locations across the country or at a single location of your choice.

A demarc extension is a process of connecting your organization’s network to a data line–such as a T1, DSL, or POTS–provided by the telephone company or another vendor. The “demarcation point” (or “demarc” for short) is the spot at your location where the vendor terminates their circuit. Beyond this point it is your responsibility to connect your network to that demarcation point. The demarc cabling must be extended to reach a wiring closet or some sort of data distribution system in order to integrate with your network. Depending on your needs and the layout of the site, services for a circuit extension can vary greatly. iTECH2 has experience performing demarc extensions in many environments, including warehouses, offices, schools, shopping malls, and high-rise buildings.

iTECH2 can provide a simple extension for your IT department to work with or full-service network integration. Our solutions are always custom-tailored to the needs of our clients. Here are some examples of our most common services:


itech2 runs cable (typically UTP Cat5e) from the Minimum Point of Entry (MPOE) or Telco Closet to an equipment room or the Main Distribution Frame (MDF). Cable runs are neatly arranged and concealed as much as possible with mounting hardware provided by itech2. Cables are tested and neatly labeled. Once itech2 has extended the demarc to a wiring closet, your IT department can take over for the rest of the network.

Horizontal and Backbone Distribution Systems

iTECH2 can take a demarc extension a step further and install a distribution system for a network. It is often necessary to create structured-cabling solutions for larger networks. Our technicians can connect the Main Distribution Frame (MDF) to Intermediate Data Frames (IDF) using either 4-pair, 25-pair, 50-pair, 100-pair, 200-pair, or fiber optic cable. itech2 can design both a horizontal distribution system (to connect the IDF to individual workstations) or a backbone distribution system that utilizes multiple vertical distributions, such as in a high-rise building or a particularly long hall.

Test and Turn Up Circuits

When a customer purchases a new dedicated-circuit T1 line, the vendor will provide a start date on which the circuit goes live. Test signals are then sent to ensure proper communication. itech2 has extensive experience in working with telephone companies from the client’s side in order to make sure your new circuit is working properly.
