Site Surveys
An accurate site survey is critical to engineering and installation planning.

By Light’s Site Survey approach:

  • Coordinate directly with site personnel.
  • Perform a telephone survey prior to the on-site survey.
  • Verify project requirements.
  • Capture HVAC and power.
  • Identify risk items and actions.

Installation Readiness Reviews
Installation Readiness is critical to a successful installation.  At By Light, we prefer to measure twice and cut once.

By Light’s Installation Readiness Review approach:

  • Use installation team members to verify site readiness.
  • Verify risk items and actions have been mitigated.

On Site Installation and Coordination
Installation requires more than just rack mounting equipment.  At By Light, our professional installation team leads are prepared to work with your on-site requirements.

By Light’s On-Site Installation and Coordination approach:

  • Identify and brief site security, access and safety requirements.
  • Ensure all on-site personnel are trained and certified to operate required equipment.
  • Utilize site specific incident reporting procedures.
  • Provide a single point of contact for all customer issues and concerns.

System Verification and Testing
An installation is not complete until it has been verified and tested.

By Light System Verification and Testing approach:

  • Perform device verification testing in accordance with manufacturer guidelines.
  • Develop project/system/network specific acceptance test plans.
