NM Cabling Design Tier 3 Data Centre

NM Cabling are currently involved in the design of a new data centre in South East London near Canary Wharf. The design team are helping the client to achieve Tier 3+ status for the data centre which will be a leading co-location centre in London.

London, United Kingdom, March 02, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Tier 3 data centres are commonly seen as the most cost effective solutions for the vast majority of medium to large businesses, with availability topping 99.98% ensuring minimal downtime. To put this figure in perspective, this means that typical equipment should see a maximum of two hours of downtime on an annual basis.

Today, Tier 3 Data centres have to meet all of the requirements of tiers 1 & 2 as well as ensuring all equipment is dual-powered and has multiple uplinks. Some facilities also offer fully fault-resistant equipment, although to achieve tier 4, all equipment including HVAC, servers, storage, chillers and uplinks must be fully fault-resistant. This tier is generally considered as tier 3+ in the marketplace.

The design includes the specification of the server cabinets, cold isle containment systems as well as the structured cabling within the data centre. The cold isle containment allows the data cabinets to be enclose din a cool environment for maximum efficiency and working conditions for the data centre equipment.

The data centre cabling will consist of Cat6, Cat6a, Multimode fibre and Singlemode fibre links with a high degree of resilience with diverse routing throughout for all structured cabling links and connections.

The building management system (BMS) and BMS data cabling will also be implemented within the data centre design in association with the BMS provider. Each data cabinet will be monitored for environmental conditions which will have data cabling connections back to the main BMS system cabinets. The Cabinet PDU’s (power distribution units) will also have a structured cabling link to the BMS system controls.

Finalising the full monitoring of each cabinet will be a cabinet specific CCTV camera which likewise will contain a data cabling link to the BMS system. The design will be mindful throughout of diversity, functionality and cost efficiency and will provide a leading edge data centre and cost effective system for the end client.
