Data networks are part of every modern building. For buildings with critical technologies, it is a key part of their technological equipment and therefore it is essential to design the network alongside the operating technologies and thus eliminate the risk of functional, operational or spatial problems.
The network infrastructure solution includes a basic proposal for system topology, allocation of space for individual network infrastructure systems, dimensioning, location and coordination of routes and exact location of final (end-user) wall outlets, racks and stands. When (assigning) locations, we always take into consideration not only physical dimensions and their potential conflicts with other technologies, but also rules for placement of the specific technology from the perspective of interference, limitation on possible damage during operations, required availability and serviceability during operations and requirements for specific grounding of these components.
For data centers where the network infrastructure forms a critical part of the technologies, we usually integrate 3 types of data networks:
As part of this solution we also prepare (and offer) basic support for active network features such as redundant charging, heat removal and physical or fire-safety protection.
We recommend that our customers implement special software for network infrastructure management which can be integrated into other management systems, namely DCIM.
Typical network infrastructure technologies:
