Data Center Systems Design & Consulting

Our staff of Registered Communications Distribution Designers (RCDD) has extensive experience with the specific design requirements of data centers and co-location facilities and has completed layouts ranging from 2,000 sf up to 100,000 sf and beyond. We have designed and constructed high performance systems for a large number of data centers using various technologies to align with the Tier level of the facility.

Our Data Center systems design and consulting services typically include:

  • Cabinet and rack layouts
  • Density planning
  • Data Center equipment layouts
  • Structured cabling system design
  • Pathway design and planning
  • Fiber distribution frame design
  • And all other points listed in our Structured¬†Cabling Design services
  • Sustainability and LEED Certification design
  • Project Management

Our standards-based designs incorporate a selection of the latest server/network cabinet technologies; including the option to use supplemental cooling, such as, air containment systems, in-row cooling and passive exhaust ducts within and above cabinets, in-cabinet cable management and monitored power distribution unit selection. Our designs utilize single-mode and OM-3/OM-4 multi-mode fiber, Cat-6 and Cat-6A (10Gig) UTP cabling as well as other available media. We design both under floor and overhead distribution systems to accommodate the environmental conditions of the data center. We address Top-of-Rack network design and SFP+ cabling systems, redundant SAN fabric infrastructure, and provide consideration for the migration to 40Gb and 100Gb Ethernet as well as Passive Optical Networks.
