Datacenters - The Standards

The EN50173-5 / TIA942 specifications provide us with guidelines for designing a datacenter. Whether privately owned or under telco responsibility, the needs of these facilities are the same.

High data rate traffic converges in these confined spaces to provide high data capacity and storage services to customers.

Data centers are mission-critical. They must provide uninterrupted and monitored services. Redundancy is an essential element.

The EN50173-5 / TIA942 specifications provide guidelines for planning & designing a datacenter. Parts of the specifications are:

  • Architectural Design (building, floors, lighting etc.)
  • Electrical and HVAC
  • Grounding and Bonding
  • Structured Wiring

Quintis will guide you through the Structured Wiring part by splitting it up into Building Blocks. Thus providing you with a solution for the Structured Wiring in your highly available datacenter.
