Communications Data Center Construction

Information Services is constructing a new communications data center on the west side of campus to house core communications infrastructure. This will enable us to establish redundant connections to key facilities and maintain network and voice operations should we lose Kerr Administration or other significant facilities in the campus core to earthquake or fire.

Network Services has been working with College of Agriculture (COA) to provide Architect Services to assist with the design of a new 2100 sq. foot data center located on Campus Way next to the new COA MATF building. The data center will be on the south side of a COA equipment maintenance structure. COA has hired engineering services for structure, power, HVAC, and lighting design. The timeline for tentative acceptance testing and handoff to Network Services is late Winter Term 2014.
