Anti-Tailgating Security Installed
– You may have noticed two bars on the access doors to your suite. 1623 Farnam has finished installation of the Anti-Tailgating System we announced in September. The devices will go live this week throughout the rest of the building. Beginning with your next visit to our site, each person will be required to authenticate (both proxy card and fingerprint) to enter the data center areas. One person must authenticate, open the door, close the door and then the next person can complete the same procedure. Should two people enter under one authentication process, a very loud siren will go off and the NOC will receive an alert. Should this happen, rebadge and enter with one person and the alarm siren will cease.
We understand that this is a bit tedious and at times might be annoying, but we implemented this system to provide an additional layer of protection for our customers. In addition, we are launching into an extensive compliance and certification process and this security measure is critical to our meeting those requirements. If you have concerns or questions about how the system works, please contact our office.
Building Entrance Changes
– With the acquisition of the Omaha facility and building, 1623 Farnam is in process of becoming a dedicated data center facility. Thus, the remaining two office tenants in the building will be relocated within the coming months. We are now the “owners” of the access control system for the entire building and additional changes are being implemented. Beginning immediately, any guest (someone that does not have proxy card access) needing entrance into the building will be required to check in on the intercom within the vestibule in the lobby. Other than mail or equipment deliveries, by traditional transportation or mail carriers, any access by contractors, vendors or other personnel who do not have approved building access must be scheduled and preapproved with your 1623 Farnam contact.
– With the transaction noted earlier, customers who have space or cabinets within the Omaha carrier hotel will have received an invoice under the name of 1623 Farnam, LLC. Billing inquiries for Omaha should be sent to
More on those procedures will be coming, but if you have questions, contact our new billing team at
For those in the Lincoln facility, your billing has not changed and any billing issues should be handled as you have in the past.
