  Failsafe Power Supply
Our Network Operations Center currently has 1200amps 480V & 800amps 208V 3-Phase power currently available from PP&L (Pennsylvania Power & Electric). The facility is currently backed up and protected by multiple 275KVA and 160KVA Powerware 9315/9395 facility-wide UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems, which feed PDI, MGE, & Liebert PDU (Power Distribution Unit) systems. In a very rare case of utility outage, our Cummins 250KW & Detroit Diesel 580KW & 675KW deisel generators start automatically, taking over for the UPS systems and supplying all necessary power for the facility. The generators interface to the power grids thru Asco 7000 & RussElectric RTBD automatic transfer panels. With multiple fuel tanks on-site, the generators are capable of running without refueling for approximately 48 hours.
Precision-controlled raised floor air conditioning systems protect and cool mission-critical servers and equipment in the Network Operations Center. The facility is controlled by multiple 30-Ton APC/Airflow, 20-Ton Liebert, & 20-Ton Data Aire dual-compresser redundant systems. These systems provide a virtually dust-free and particle-free computing environment, with temperature, humidity, and air-quality regulation.
Restricted access to the Network Operations Center is monitored by qualified personnel 24 hours a day, every day. Visitors and clientele are only allowed on-site if escorted by Network Operations Center staff. The entire Network Operations Center is monitored, ensuring prompt response and thorough coverage to fire or security alarms. We supply all our Network Operations Center customers with advanced firewall, encryption, intrusion detection and other security measures.
