Standard

For the design and implementation of the Data Center, it is necessary to consider a set of standards. Some of them are mentioned in this section. Also, national standards of each country are prior to existing international standards, therefore consideration of national building regulations (IRAN) is mandatory.

Among the standards that TIAM Network considers in the implementation of the Data Center are:

  • The physical infrastructure of the Data Center (telecommunication) TIA-942-B and BICSI
  • Telecommunication and Network Cabling Standard - Structured Cabling TIA-568-D
  • Intelligent management of physical infrastructure components of the data center TIA-862-B
  • TIA-606-C standard management
  • Bonding standard and TIA-607-C ground connection
  • 110 Power Journal (Iran Power Standard)
  • Section13  of the National Building Regulations of Iran (Design and Implementation of Electrical Installations)
  • Section21  of the National Building Regulations (non-operational defense)

 

On the other hand, the company is offering a solution for the four sections outlined in the 942-TIA standard, Provides the following services and products:

 

1- Spatial and environmental conditions (Structural)

In this section, while carefully examining the structure and considered space, all requirements for achieving different levels of standard, being reviewed and appropriate solutions are presented.

  • Geolocation of the building (security, natural disasters and abnormal events, distance to the main data network, etc.)
  • Structural and building safety (including surface area resistance, columns, … along with retrofitting methods)
  • Strengthening critical parts of the Data Center against external fires
  • Humidity/ Thermal insulation of the critical parts of Data Center
  • Design and implement of false floor, ceiling and walls
  • Providing equipment layout

 

2- Cooling systems, Data Center Integrated Management system, fire alarm system, and mechanical security system

Cooling System

The heat generated by the IT and electrical equipment in the Data Center makes it necessary to cool down these centers. In order to provide a convenient cooling load in computer and utility rooms, as well as providing adequate air quality in different parts of data centers, according to the standards and requirements of the Data Center, appropriate mechanical infrastructures are designed. Usually in the Data Center the mechanical infrastructure is considered as follows:

  • The computer room cooling system is calculated and selected according to the cooling need of the active equipment and considering the redundancy appropriate to the data center category.
  • To provide the cooling of the electrical room equipment, including PDUs, UPS and batteries, the thermal load of these equipment are calculated and the appropriate cooling systems are selected.
  • The ventilation system is designed in spaces such as the N.O.C that users are present to provide fresh air and comfort throughout the year.
  • In order to create a positive pressure in some spaces, including a computer room, a positive pressure system is considered in these rooms.

 

Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)

To maintain and manage data at a Data Center, a large amount of money is spent to create a safe and reliable platform through providing the appropriate physical infrastructure. Power distribution Units, cooling systems, lighting systems, security systems and electronic protection systems are all needed to sustain the life of a Data Center. Each of these units acts independently and separately.

Managing and creating an integrated structure between existing systems is handled by the Data Center Physical Infrastructure Control and Monitoring System (DCIM).

The Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) configured with a proper structure of sensors, measurement modules, hardware interfaces, and a software dashboard to monitor and manage various parameters without any limitations.

Support for multiple warning solutions such as reporting on the network, sending SMS, email, visual audio alarm, dialing under various conditions, and creating various control scenarios is another feature of this system that assures the Data Center manager about The correct function of these systems.

 

The services of TIAM Network in the field of integrated management system include:

  1. Need assessment and determination of the appropriate strategy for monitoring the physical infrastructure of the data center
  2. Detailed design includes selection of equipment, locating of equipment installation place and provision of communication paths
  3. Production and supply of proper system for the project
  4. Provision of infrastructure, physical installation of equipment, hardware and software settings

 

3-  Electrical systems

Providing the power needed for equipment inside the Data Center is one of the most important and most sensitive parts of the design and implementation of the Data Center that requires precise design and engineering for the electrical infrastructure. Therefore, the design of the electrical infrastructure for a Data Center is one of the basic requirements and needs of this section, which should be carefully considered. Due to problems in the city's electric power supply to consumers in the Data Center racks, it is essential to use a safe and uninterruptable electricity supply. Power cables are known as the only source for fires occurred in a Data Center, If the design process doesn’t proceed based on engineering principles, it can have irreparable consequences.

According to the vast experience on the design and implementation of the iDC Hot & Cold Aisle Containment, TIAM Networks Company deals with the electrical section in a Data Center, as follows:

 

  • Calculate the Data Center loads and determine their consumption
  • Design of all Data Center panels including main, UPS, cooling, emergency power (Diesel Generator) panels
  • Calculations to select the appropriate UPS and battery requirements according to the power supply time
  • Calculation of the proper choice of diesel generator (emergency power)
  • Computing the lighting of the Data Center and determining the amount of lux required in the rooms
  • Calculation of all cables required in a Data Center including cable type, length, cross-section, etc.
  • Calculating and designing Plots and layouts for the infrastructure of the electric cables and the paths of the cables in a Data Center

 

4- Telecommunication

The two standards of ISO 24764 and TIA-942 are considered data center cabling, and compliance with the standard structure of cabling in the data center, that helps us to not encounter any port management problems while the data center is operating.

 

Fixed cabling should provide the following two foundations for the user:

  • Supports a wide range of available and required user accounts.
  • Estimate the capacity required for supported applications by installing a permanent cabling system.

 

TIAM Network for cabling Data Center performs the following steps:

  • survey of the project location and prepare preliminary plots
  • Telecommunication cable design
  • Selecting rack location according to existing standards
  • Selection and preparation of telecommunication cable communication equipment list
  • Provide a layout and list of required equipment for the employer
  • Providing copper and fiber optic cables
  • Installation of the rack and the arrangement of telecommunication cables
  • Installation of trays and rack ladders
  • Testing and labeling
  • Documentation

 

Hot /Cold Aisle Containment

General and special features of the iDC Hot and Cold Aisle Containment

The general features of the hot and cold aisle containments (designed, manufactured and implemented by TIAM Network) are 90% identical in components. These features selection are depending on the environmental conditions, the requirements of the employer and the location of the data center or the server room. In accordance with the physical conditions of the Data Center, its requirements, the amount of power consuming equipment, the choice of technology used in the cooling system, as well as the employer's limitations, the list of equipment and services are provided.
