Fortune 50 Telecommunications Company
Mobile Switching Center
The Salas O’Brien team completed engineering, architecture, and construction administration services for this Fortune 50 client’s new mobile switching center in Hillsboro, Oregon, near Portland.
Whether users are sending an important work email, scrolling through news feeds, or simply calling home—telecommunications providers make the connections possible. This recurring Fortune 50 telecommunications client routes data through switching centers that are strategically positioned around the country. These hubs are the brains that keep data flowing smoothly among users, and they require faultless design and security.
When this client decided to build a new switching center to meet the needs of users in and around Hillsboro and Portland, Oregon, they knew they needed a trustworthy engineering partner that could design an environment to facilitate and protect their critical equipment.
Salas O’Brien provided the mechanical and electrical design, architectural design, interior architecture, and construction administration for the project. The finished 43,000-square-foot facility includes two central switch rooms, two power rooms, central switch control room, and supporting data and telecommunications spaces.
Our team’s design keeps the facility’s critical equipment safe from all types of disasters, and it empowers our client to support cell users efficiently—without downtime.
