Access to Telecommunications Rooms

In order to maintain the integrity of OTM's Data Dial Tone service within the Louisiana Secure Intranet, it is critical that the Telecommunications closets in the State Office buildings served by Data Dial Tone be secured. Only personnel authorized by OTM will have access to these rooms.

This applies to all buildings occupied by agencies that subscribe to Data Dial Tone services and participate in the Secure Intranet.


OSB will create and post log forms in all telecommunications rooms throughout Capitol Park. OSB will collect Telecommunications Room Access Logs monthly and send them to Lois Williams, Manager of OTM Advanced Services, 10th floor BRSOB.

It is important that personnel working in those rooms do not prop the doors open as it may allow a vulnerability.
