SITUATION REPORT

                                                                                                        Monday, 15 January 2007



COMMUNICATION:  The thirteen year old PABX system is being upgraded.  Aside from the main PABX system in Loyola Heights and its associated phone lines, a large portion of the campus data network either terminates at, or passes through the PABX room.  Over the years, the growth of these services have almost completely filled up the room with cables and equipment.

 

With the ongoing data backbone upgrade and the deployment of a new, VoIP-capable PABX system, there is a need to renovate, expand, and reorganize the room.  This will allow for a smoother transition to the new PABX system, as well as make systems troubleshooting, maintenance, and upgrading easier.

 

The renovation of the PABX and CNG station involves work on top of the EDSA walk between Xavier and Kostka Halls.  Shown below is the area where renovation work will be done.

Left:  Top of the covered walk where the expanded PABX & CNG work station will be located.  Left arrow points to conduits containing PLDT entrance cables.  Second arrow points to PLDT's Digital Line Carrier cabinets.  Blue line indicates the space that will be occupied by the PABX & CNG station.

Middle:  View of the area to be occupied by the PABX & CNG station.  Structure partially covered by the mango tree is the existing PABX room.

Right:  The old PABX room was converted to Loyola School's MIS room, shown on the left side of the picture with the auxiliary stairs.  Blue line gives an idea of what will be covered by the renovation.

 

To ensure that this will not disrupt pedestrian traffic, EDSA walk has been boarded up.  The enclosure has been painted and lights have been installed to light up the affected section of the EDSA walk shown in the following pictures below:

Left:  A view of the existing PABX room and the distribution cables conduits indicated by the arrow.  This is one of the two areas where work will be done.

Middle:  Small mango tree beside the EDSA walk will have to be relocated.  The roots of the mango tree will undermine EDSA walk and damage the underground conduits containing the telephone lines and Internet fiber optics.  

Right:  Close-up view of the spreading mango roots that affects the distribution line conduits.

This is the perspective of the expanded PABX and CNG station.  Arrow points to conduits containing distribution lines.

 

WATER:  The Ateneo Professional Schools cisterns and overhead tanks at Rockwell  were cleaned yesterday.  Water samples were taken today for tests and analysis.  Results will be announced next week.  

 

SECURITY:  Counterfeit P100, P500 and P1000 bills have been passed on at the Loyola Heights campus in the last two years.  A few months ago, counterfeit P5 and P10 coins were also intercepted.  Last week, a counterfeit P200 bill shown below surfaced.

Except for the quality of paper used, the counterfeit bill can easily be mistaken for a genuine bill.  The counterfeit bill is the one on top on both pictures.

 

The community is encouraged to take time to examine bills they receive.  Counterfeit bills are successfully passed on because most don't bother to examine them.
