What is a Demarc Extension?

Politon, Inc. can help your business by providing the expertise to extend your data connections and phone lines from the Demrac or MPOE (minimum point of entry) to your data closet in your suite. Extending these lines is called a Demarc Extension. There are typically two types of demarc extensions which are either Fiber Demarc extensions or Copper Demarc extensions. Sometimes this can be hundreds of feet for a copper demarc extension to thousands of feet away for fiber demarc extensions. We have literally pulled miles and miles of cable extending demarcs in all kinds of environments such as hospitals, industrial warehouses, offices, and retail locations.

In return air ceilings (ceiling plenum) in office buildings, it is required to use Plenum rated cable. In a warehouse, you can utilize non plenum-rated cable to keep your cost down. So needs, distance, and environment will all affect the cost of your demrac extension solution as well as for any structured cable network.

Politon has the expertise to evaluate all these factors and can perform a site survey to give you the most cost-effective solution for today and tomorrow. If you have questions please call us at 214-441-7173.

Below is a list of the most common demarc extensions we perform:

  • 25, 50, 100 pair Feeder Cable (indoor and outdoor rated)
  • Fiber Optic Cable (Single Mode and Multi-Mode)
  • Coax Cable (RG-6)
  • Cat 5e cable

Our technicians are very knowledgeable of the materials and best practices to perform demarc extensions in any environment. All successful projects begin with a Cabling Site Survey.

What is a typical demarc extension?

The most common demarc extension is a 4 conductor UTP Cat 5e cable. It can bring in 4 phone lines, a DSL circuit, or Ethernet from an Internet modem. This extension is good up to a distance of about 330 ft.

Dallas, TX

This was a great project for us and had many different installation applications.  This Dallas data cabling job consisted of over 400 cables as well as a fiber optic demarc extension.  We installed six projectors, 6 pull-down screens, ten flat screen tv's with one being an 85" flat screen in the board room.  Some of the tv applications had Cat 6 to HDMI convertors as well as VGA extensions to the projectors.  This Reddy Ice Dallas headquarters had over 13 wifi access points installed around the office and in the boardrooms.    Some of the challenges on this project was flex conduit under the slab that fed several cubicle farms had issues that we had to resolve to get our high count of cables into the cubes as well as some design changes that did not make it onto the floor plan version we were working off of. The customer moved over some existing cubicles from their old building which did not have the correct parts initially when installed so we had to wait until they came in for us to finish our part but we had plenty of AV work to do while we waited a few days to complete the baseboards. On another note, we found a new restaurant we ate at several times called Don Taco which is pretty good for street tacos, or a large bowl of Caldo de res which is essentially a beef stew with large chunks of vegetables.  Just wanted to share something in the area that we thought was noteworthy to those working around 635 and Preston road area.

Lewisville, TX

We provided a total network infrastructure solution composed of Cat 6 data cabling, WiFi installation as well as twelve security cameras with an NVR that has 8 TB of storage at there new Lewisville, TX facility. The installation spanned two buildings with WiFi and cameras on the exterior of the building as well as the warehouse and office area. We finished the cabling and WiFi installation then waited for construction to catch up to us so we could install the cameras on the exterior of the building. After the project was complete we helped the customer download the Vivo Cloud app and helped him get logged in to view the cameras with his smartphone. The customer was pleased with the project and asked us if we were interested in building out a new tenant space they are adding on as well. We had two challenges on this project and the first was that we proposed a different brand camera that met their price point but was not NDAA compliant so we used another brand that met these criteria. The second challenge was the general contractor of building the facility who is not associated with my customer's company but was very difficult to work with. It took us a while to figure him out and overcome this obstacle and eventually won him over with think with kindness.

Fort Worth, TX

We were asked to extend the demarc from the customer's demarc room to there data rack in the next room. Our tech utilized Cat 6 cable for the installation and ran it through the ceiling space. We utilized male RJ45's ends on both ends of the cable. After the Category 6 cable was tested we plugged both ends into the equipment and had the customer verify the connection was up and running. This is our second project for Locus Robotics in Fort Worth, TX. We are so happy for repeat business.
