Locating Services

About this service

Locating the OSP cabling is necessary to prevent cable cuts which result in interrupted services to the user.  Locating the OSP cabling prevents 99% of cable cuts on campus. A cable cut can take hours to weeks to repair, depending on what is cut.  
Technology Services has located the OSP on campus since the cutover from Illinois Bell. Our employees work with Plant Engineering and both groups know the campus and the OSP infrastructure very well.  We have a rapid response time to emergency locates and regular locates, we have a very high success rate for accuracy. We have technicians available for locating 24/7 on a call-out basis.
