LAN-TEL Communications Provides Critical Tel/Data Support for BCEC Field Hospital
During the COVID-19 pandemic, several Massachusetts hospitals were forced to expand their capacity to meet the increased needs of patients. In response to the surge of COVID-19 patients in the state’s healthcare system and area hospitals, LAN-TEL Communications – the Commonwealth’s leading structured cabling expert – stepped in to provide network and IT infrastructure to the City of Boston at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC).
Following the fast-track conversion of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) into a temporary, 1,000-bed field hospital for COVID-19 patient care, LAN-TEL Communications installed the facility’s phones to the network, allowing for internal communications. The project also entailed the National Electrical Contractors Association’s (NECA) verification of the telecom system to the network for functionality. The BCEC project was planned and managed by the Baker-Polito Administration, in collaboration with the City of Boston and community healthcare partners. and provided a total of 500 beds for Boston’s homeless population and 500 beds for non-critical, recovering coronavirus patients.
The LAN-TEL project team was headed by Project Manager Jeff Carr and Operations and Safety Officer Steve Boccuzzi, along with General Foreman John Phelan, who managed a crew of IBEW Local 103 technicians.
