Cairs.net uses the term “building” as a general term that defines the location of connections and various different equipment providing telephone service, LAN, IP connections, and non-dial tone circuits. A building also represents location types such as telephone poles, pedestals, manholes, trailers, sheds, etc. or can also be a location that provides no services and is just a method to document a place.
When you create a terminal within a building, you must designate it to use “binding posts” or as a “frame,” it must be one or the other and cannot be both. When you install working service into cairs.net, you assign into the building onto the specific binding post or frame location.
