data centre data cabling installation


The Challenge

Redstone, one of the UK's leading I.T. Infrastucture providers, required a state-of-the-art new data centre for the re-location of a client's hosting facility.

Phoenix was commissioned to install Cabinets, modification to fit and the installation of the Cabinet Hot Air Chimneys. Design and build a of a high-level containment solution, installation of Cat6a panel-to-panel links, as well as OM3 MPO Fibre Optic links.

The Solution

Installation of 8 Ortronics Patching Racks and 24 Cabinets fully bayed together and earthed. The telescopic hot air chimneys required modification to fit due to the low ceiling height in the data hall.

Phoenix Optics were able to develop a comprehensive design and installation of a two tier over head cabling containment solution suspended from the ceiling slab. A 400mm wide steel wire cable basket for copper cabling and the Panduit Fibre Routing system Fiber Runner above.

We also had a design challenge of constructing a high-level bespoke panel enclosure to house the data cabling connectivity above the three par cabinets and EMC cabinets to match the full aesthetics of the high level containment solution.

We were able to develop a comprehensive design and installation solution based around the very latest Cat6a technology along with an OM3 Pre-terminated fibre 10Gbs solution. Phoenix installed a total of 864 Corning Cat6a terminations and 2040 fibre optic multi-mode connections with 340 Corning MPO cassettes.
