Facility improves reliability and supports all ICU wards

Secure I.T. Environments has completed a project for Barnet Hospital, designing, supplying, and installing one of its custom 42U Micro Data Centre 3 facilities for the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). 

The new micro data centre provides critical network services and communications for the operational side of the ICU, and includes passive air conditioning for up to a 12kW load.

Designed to a high-security specification, the cabinet is secure against access or damage by the general public and will provide a new level of reliability over the previous data centre. 

The micro DC took three days to install and involved the movement of equipment between old and new cabinets, structured cabling of the new cabinet, power supply installation, and testing. 

Secure I.T. Environments will also be providing maintenance for the cooling system in the new data centre. 

Chris Wellfair, projects director at Secure I.T. Environments, said: “Intensive care units can be one of the most-challenging locations in a hospital to install a data centre as reliability and security are critical characteristics for any technology used. 

“Our micro data centre range not only meets that standard, but can handle high-density applications with ease and fit elegantly and quietly into any environment.” 

The micro data centre cabinet is an all-in-one solution incorporating 19ins cabinets, cable management, cooling, UPS, power environmental monitoring, and fire suppression – all within a single compact unit.
