Despite the fact that Location, Location, Location remains to be the main concern for a business selecting new real estate, the standards used to evaluate buildings is shifting.

This not only makes having an extremely consistent network connection essential, it also makes the higher communications infrastructure of a company's office space a key part of its IT strategy and daily operations.

The location of its building is one of the most vital decisions that a business can make impacting employees, customers and others who work with the organisation.
