Project Overview
IBM recently relocated its staff to a new premise in Olof Pames, Denmark. In addition to occupying the first two floors of the building, IBM had designed a state of the art data centre to occupy the basement of the new building. The new data centre is considerably larger than its predecessor and required a complete refurbishment of the property and a bespoke communications infrastructure.

Working with its valued building services partner, Mercury Engineering Ltd, Boston Networks delivered a high performing and resilient structured cabling infrastructure and fibre optic backbone to ensure IBM’s business benefits from 24x7x365 mission critical operation.

In addition to the resilient communication and data centre solution, Boston Networks also delivered the power management and containments systems, throughout IBM’s new premises.

The entire solution encompassed:

• Cat 7a Structured Cabling Infrastructure
• Racks & Enclosures to support Air Flow Management
• Streamlined Containment System
• High Speed Fibre Optic Infrastructure
• Adaptable Cable Management Solution

Performance and Benefits

The infrastructure has been designed to ensure IBM benefit from agility, availability and efficiency.

The high-density infrastructure delivers significantly improved parameters to maximise uptime and decrease operation costs, whilst the purpose designed connector systems and cable management platforms deliver true agility.

Furthermore with maximum flexibility in the architecture, a versatile cable management system and a great level of scalability, IBM can choose from a range of options for future, high speed, data centre applications and trends such as virtualization and switch consolidation.
