Datwyler: Wiring of new LVR data centre Print E-mail
Thursday, 09 February 2012 08:59

With a view to streamlining its operations, LVR-InfoKom, the system house for the Rhineland Regional Association LVR, has expanded its principal data centre in Cologne and relocated it to a new building. The contract for the re-wiring was awarded to Datwyler who offered an economical overall solution and rapid completion.

In the new data centre all the active components were to be interconnected by means of a future-proof, top-of-rack cabling system. In the copper technology sector, therefore, tenders were invited for a class EA system with a 10 gigabit capability. In the fibre optic (FO) sector the LVR wanted OM3 multimode cable and, for the link to the outside, OS2 singlemode cables in buffered fibre assembly which were to be supplied complete with cable splitters and pre-assembled LCD connectors.

"As far as we were concerned, the strength of the Datwyler tender lay not only in the highly economical solution which was put forward, in particular for the FO lines, but also in a plausible plan outlining just how the very tight installation times could be adhered to", explains Michael Kemper, Director of Communication Technology at LVR-InfoKom.

Datwyler’s approach to implementing the order was to apply a turnkey strategy. Within just a few days the teams from Datwyler were able to lay the type 7702 copper cables, assemble them with connectors and finally measure and document the line segments - around 1000 of them with a total length of 16 kilometres. The pre-assembled FO trunk cables (multiple cables) - a total of 210 lines, in most cases with 24 fibres each - arrived inclusive of the test reports in a number of part deliveries and were installed immediately in each case.
