Overview


Located atop the Plaza is the Telecommunications Center at Bank of America Plaza, which provides a service to over 65 wireless, fiber, civic, and media outlets. This center is unique because it maximizes the available radio spectrum space - through the use of a common antenna network - to accommodate the licenses. Licenses include mobile radio dispatch companies, courier services, municipal services, federal institutions, radio and television broadcasters, wireless phone companies, and numerous microwave radio system users. The Telecommunications Center occupies only 5,000 square feet of the 72nd floor, but is a significant resource to the building tenants and community.

The Telecommunications Center at Bank of America Plaza incorporates the latest state-of-the-art equipment to serve the maximum number of users in the available space. From a functional perspective, the Property is ideal for coverage of the Downtown area and surrounding suburbs. The tower's height of 921 feet and status as the tallest building in Dallas, provides superior, unobstructed coverage of the area for wireless transmission equipment. Some buildings in Downtown Dallas are likely to experience some signal blockage from Bank of America Plaza.

Bank of America Plaza's state-of-the-art, highly advanced, rooftop communications center is available to those tenants requiring microwave equipment and antenna installations. For more information on this facility, contact the management office at 214-761-6110 or Telecommunication Properties, Inc. (TPI), the communications systems provider, at 214-231-3344.

DATA CENTER

The Bank of America Plaza Tenant Data Center offers premier conditioned data center space, state-of-the-art fiber connectivity, managed standby power generators and UPS. Bank of America Plaza tenants enjoy the benefit of an on-site, pre-built data center to enhance or replace their back room IT facilities. Unlimited connectivity options exist between tenant space via the building pre-built fiber optic backbone.

ROOFTOP COMMUNICATIONS CENTER

Completely invisible to the outside world, but every bit as impressive as the building's outer form, are the broadcast transmission facilities housed inside the top floor of the Bank of America Plaza Communications Center. Unlike any other rooftop antenna facility, the Communications Center was designed specifically for all forms of wireless communications services. The facility was designed and built as an integral part of the building and has a 360 degree unobstructed view of the entire area.

TELECOMMUNICATIONS

Bank of America Plaza operates a fully redundant, fully managed, telecommunication riser facility. The building features a pre-built fiber optic cabling system to every floor. Tenants have quick and easy access to over 30 major telephone carriers on site or can leverage the fiber for easy connectivity between floors. The building even includes an in-building cell phone antenna system, allowing reliable cell phone coverage and direct connection to all major cell phone operators.

ELECTRICAL FEATURES

Bank of America Plaza provides an impressive electrical infrastructure that translates into nearly limitless electrical capacity and unparalleled uptime. Bank of America Plaza's fully redundant (6 feeders served by one substation) electrical system is supplied by independent ONCOR power generating stations through several diverse feeders on the ERCOT grid. Supporting this reliability, the building is equipped with fully redundant switchgear consisting of four 14,000 volt riser feeds supplying over 10 in-building 500 KW substations that provide redundant 480-volt service through multiple 2,000 AMP electrical risers. To enhance the utility service, Bank of America Plaza provides managed standby generator and UPS power services in the building.

COOLING FEATURES

Bank of America Plaza features six individual cooling towers, and three chillers offering a 3,950 ton capacity. The system is strategically interconnected to operate as an N+1 system that allows for maintenance bypass during servicing, as well as emergency failover should any component go off-line. The system serves a building-wide supply that delivers condenser riser water directly to special use and datacenter HVAC equipment. Additionally, Bank of America Plaza features a 2 million gallon chilled water system to quickly respond to unexpected demand.
