Whether you call it a riser closet, telco closet or a wiring closet, the biggest new threat to your building is lurking in the space where the telecommunications cables go, contends Concert Technologies.

A new set of videos from the company asserts that "the riser system is the most important telecommunications and utility infrastructure in a multi-story commercial building -- and its security is essential to your tenants' IP networks and business operations."

The first video produced by the company on this topic (ahem) speaks for itself.

"A proven nationwide riser management service will ensure the privacy of your tenants' IP networks and operability of tenant network solutions, structured cabling, demarc extensions, VoIP, CCTV, AV, security systems, wireless access points, and other CPE that depend on the security of the building's riser closets," said Concert Technologies in a statement accompanying the new videos. "Building owners and managers understand the importance of riser management and the threats surrounding the building's riser system," adds the company.

In the second video, below, Concert Technologies reviews the threats of an unmanaged riser system and its impact on the safety of the building's telecom closets.
