Refer to criteria memo
4-126.96.36.199 The information technology rooms are separate from the telephone room,
which is the service entrance for the telephone service. All facilities will have a network
operations center (NOC) room and an NOC electrical closet. As facilities increase in
size, a work area is added. A facility designated as a Direct Reporting Command (DRC)
or RRC headquarters receives office and work space for the NOC staff in lieu of the
work area, plus a secure NOC and an IT closet.
4-188.8.131.52 The sizes of the IT spaces also vary based on the facility size and
designation; the specific space authorizations will be provided in the project documents.
4-184.108.40.206 In larger or multistory facilities, additional IT hub rooms may be required to
maintain compliance with the restriction of 91 meters (300 ft) maximum for IT cable runs
beyond a hub. The minimum size for an IT hub room is 3050 mm by 4250 mm (10 ft by
14 ft). Cable runs are simplified between additional IT rooms in multistory facilities when
the rooms are stacked or at least overlapped.
