Southern Ohio Correctional Facility
Burgess & Niple was selected to design a new telephone/communication system for this maximum-security facility, to replace an antiquated system used by administrators and prisoners alike. A state-of-the art voice and data communications system was installed, including a computerized telephone switching system for administrative offices and a separate phone system for prisoners.
The result of this fast-track design project is a system linking 600 telephones and 300 data outlets for administrators, and 88 inmate telephones. The system required 250,000 linear feet of data and telephone cables, 35,000 linear feet of distribution cable and 8,000 linear feet of fiber optic cable.
