Internal networks and telecommunications contracting

Communications networks and communications systems in real estate buildings, i.e. internal networks, are part of the basic equipment in real estate buildings, similarly to e.g. the electrification in real estate buildings. High-quality internal networks enable the use of communications services in real estate buildings. Although telecommunications connections can also be implemented wirelessly, it should be noted that an internal network implemented by means of cables is the basis for versatile use of services in the future, too.

The construction of internal networks is regulated in Finland by FICORA's regulation which must be complied with when constructing an internal network. In addition, other documents which provide help for the planning and construction of internal networks have been made. The documents concerning the planning, construction and maintenance of internal networks can be found below.

Regulation 65 on internal networks and telecommunications contracting in real estate buildings

The Regulation concerns in-building communications networks and systems, in other words internal networks, that are connected as part of the public communications network. The Regulation applies to internal networks in residential buildings meant for permanent living, office buildings and public buildings, including antenna reception of television transmissions. The Regulation is obligating and its obligations apply to the owners, builders and designers of an internal network.
