INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT) / EXTRA LOW VOLTAGE (ELV)
With IT and interconnectivity being the norm in the way business is done, data centers have become an indispensable mechanical and electrical infrastructure for enterprises. From small server closets to a million square-foot, standalone buildings, we’ve got the experience and the expertise when it comes to data center engineering.
The largest retailer in the Philippines chose Hewlett-Packard Philippines as the system integrator for its all-new data center, which would serve as the group’s centralized data and command center for nationwide operations. Security and safety of information was of the utmost concern, which was why HP relied on our expertise for the structured cabling, CCTV, and auxiliary packages for the project.
We installed MPO cables by TE Connectivity and their accompanying system, a pre-tested factory solution with a high-density MPO connector at the heart of the system. We also installed the fiber backbone on seven floors.
To address security in the facility, we installed a CCTV system, comprised full HD IP cameras, varifocal IP cameras, a centralized management system with a television monitor, and a LILIN Central Video Management System. Along with visual security, we deployed proximity readers and biometrics HandKey readers to secure strategic rooms such as the data center, command center, and surveillance monitoring center. For data center protection, we specified and installed the ELSA Advanced System for efficient leak detection in telecommunication switching rooms and rooms for semi-conduction and wafer manufacturing. Lastly, to secure the whole facility, we installed a Gulf Security Technology fire alarm system, as well as addressable smoke detectors, one addressable heat detector, addressable strobe horns, and six (6) addressable manual pull stations integrated into the FDAS.
