Networks Centre understand that a Data Centre, whether Co-location or Enterprise is a 24/7 critical facility and operators demand the highest level of service from their supply partners. It is no co-incidence that Network Centre have been selected by largest Data Centre Co-location & Enterprise operators in the UK to provide that service.
From an infrastructure perspective, Data Centres, particularly larger ones use proportionally more fibre connections than copper when compared to enterprise buildings - BSRIA reported that in 2014 the ratio of fibre to copper in data centres was 67:33. This is why Networks Centre maintains the largest stock of network fibre cable in the UK because it is generally supplied on 2km drums and lead times from the manufacture can be significant.
Data Centres are at the cutting edge of Network technology, requiring High speed data connections at 4 or 5 nines reliability. Therefore they demand only the best quality and performance products. Networks Centre have selected many of the world’s leading manufacturers as supply partners to provide a single source for complete end-to-end infrastructure.
With increasing densities of fibre connection through upscaling from 10Gb to 40 or 100Gb, there has been a large uptake in high density cassette based solutions with pre-terminated, often made to measure fibre assemblies with MPO/MTP connectivity. When supplying pre-terminated solutions, Networks Centre understand that it is critical to manage the process from design to commissioning, ensuring specified optical budget losses are respected and a sound testing methodology is used to prove performance. That is why Networks Centre are the UK’s number one supplier of Network Testers and provide training, technical & Gold service support to ensure that the installer is never left without a tester. In addition to pre-terminated cable assemblies, we offer other prep services including pre-build (reducing time on site and waste), rack layout drawings and customer specific inventory management.
