CO-LOCATION APPLICATION MODEL
In our Co-Location reference model, the network design adopted, provides maximum flexibility of connectivity between all spaces within the data center building and also to the other data centers on the campus. The design can be split into two discreet sections – the backbone and the horizontal cabling.
In the horizontal cabling, all of the equipment racks are cabled back to the Main Distribution frames using medium fiber count cables.
In the backbone cabling all of the MDs on the campus are interconnected, using very high fiber count cables. This allows a client in any space on the campus to be connected to a service provider located anywhere on the campus, scaling the campus into a single Hyperscale space.
