NHS Data Centers

NHS Data CentersWorking alongside B2net, one of Europe’s largest Storage Integrators & CISCO Specialists, ICS were appointed to Consult, Design & Build two new Data Centres for the NHS Trust at their facility in Leigh Infirmary. As part of a roll-out of a new Network & Storage Infrastructure ICS were appointed to supply & install all specialist containment, cabinets, racking as well as all the internal structured cabling.

Two Data Centres were fitted out with 25 Panduit Net-Access™ Cabinets complete with Panduit Intelligent Power Distribution Strips. All Copper & Fibre Cabling was routed overhead on CPI Ladder Racking and Panduit FiberRunner® Containment leaving the floor void free for cooling of the rooms.

Each cabinet was cabled with a 24port Cat6 link which emanated from a Central Open Patching Frame located within the room. This allows all inter-connect patching to be carried out at the frame minimising the number of cross patches within the cabinets.
The rooms were linked with Panduit Cat6A 10G Copper & Fibre on two diverse pathways creating resilience between the two Data Centres. ICS also supplied all the Panduit connectivity including Cat6 & Fibre Optic Patch Leads.
