03/26/2002 - Time Warner To Wire Davenport, Many More

A dozen more buildings in the Terabyte Triangle and elsewhere around Spokane will have optical fiber connections very soon. According to Vice President Mitzi Sachs, Time Warner Telecom has worked through some contractual and regulatory red tape, and now has clearance to begin pulling wires. Time Warner Telecom’s Spokane headquarters are in the Washington Mutual Building at 601 West Main.

The Davenport Hotel may be the most exciting addition to “wired” status --- but then historical records indicate that Louis Davenport’s Hotel was often on the leading edge of any innovation of the time. Time Warner will be working with NetRiver to provide state-of-the-art connectivity for the newly renovated structure.

NetRiver is moving its Network Operations Center (NOC) into the Davenport, where in addition to the building network, they have handled the design and installation of all the low voltage wiring systems including the CAT5E network, telephone system, HVAC and energy management systems, and the coax television system. The Davenport’s network core will include a fiber optic OC3 provided by Time Warner, Cisco 6509 catalyst switch, redundant power supplies, redundant processor cards, 10/100-switched ports, and a Cisco 5505 Catalyst switch serving the guest network. There will be redundant wiring and back up power sources. For more information on NetRiver’s NOC, go to http://www.netriver.net/index.asp.

Other Downtown buildings soon to be receiving fiber optic lines include the Peyton Building, Metropolitan Mortgage, and KHQ television. Rockpointe buildings I, II, and III are scheduled for OC3 lines, and Spokane School District 81 is adding more optical fiber for their EMAN. While they’re in the neighborhood, Time Warner will also “wire” the Tech Group building.

Outside of the Terabyte Triangle, Time Warner is scheduled to bring fiber optic lines to KAYU and KREM television studios, and to ICT in the University City Mall. Approval has also been given for a 25-mile ring to include the Spokane Valley with options to add the Spokane Industrial Park and Liberty Lake areas.

Time Warner currently has fiber in the Hutton Building, Fernwell Building, US Bank Building, and the Wall Street Building at 123 S. Wall. In addition, there is a fiber conduit into the Crescent Court Building. --- Billie Moreland
