IT Cabinet SAN LAN & WAN Telecoms room – Datacentre Patching Engineering - Wokingham, Berkshire
October 2014 We have completed a complete re-patch and tidy up of a local software companies IT Datacentre Comm’s room.
The company had identified that the IT Network, LAN, WAN and SAN racks had become difficult to manage and fault find
The Physical IT infrastructure required some specialist re-engineering.
IT comm’s rooms and datacentres quite often grow incrementally and additional infrastructure and equipment often installed into racks as a temporary measure becomes permanent.
We have designed and worked in lots of IT comm’s rooms and datacentres, our experience operating in these environments and spaces will ensure a physical infrastructure that’s fit for purpose for years to come.
