TELESMART Telekom's collocation centre - Skopje Exchange Teleroom (SET) is a facility that uses the latest technologies for fire detection and suppression, temperature and humidity control, security systems, uninterruptible power supply and sophisticated network management and monitoring. They provide the highest infrastructure reliability and availability in the industry with dedicated staff available to provide skilled hands & eyes services.
Regarding the specifications of our data collocation centre, below are given all the selected physical, environmental, and service parameters.
Power - The SET center has a standard 220V power supply which comes from two different transformer stations from EVN and it provides redundancy and greater utilization of the power and its goal is to minimize the chances for interruption in the supplies of electricity.
Over the premises of the SET center (which is) owned by TELESMART, there is a Diesel generator - Texan Generator 1003TG. It serves as a protection in case of interruption in the supplies of electricity. In such cases the generator and the UPS are activated at the same time (UPS 30kVA), and the UPS operates until it detects that the generator starts to generate electricity, after which it shuts down and the electricity is further by supplied by the generator (continues to supply the generator). At the worst, the protection is transferred to batteries (4 batteries 160 Аh).
The device has four lifting points, which makes it easy to transfer. Advanced performances for acoustic isolation, stop button for emergencies, improved channels for aspiration for homogenization of cooling of the device itself are just part of the characteristics.
UPS 30kVA is an intelligent device with a plug for LAN network, advanced technology and for improved supervision and is integrated as a standard. It’s simple to install and use, it is compact and with the ability to expand the power and redundancy by connecting 6 parallel devices.
Another precaution when talking about electricity is the Sitel DC Power Supply System. It uses rectifiers of voltage whose conversion is AC/DC and converts from 220V to -48V and vice versa. The electricity is supplemented with four batteries, each with 12 V electricity.
Climate - The collocation space is under constant surveillance for temperature and humidity changes, and is maintained by a centralized air conditioning system.; It has cooling capacity of 15121 kcal/h with a cooling power of 17.59 kW. The average temperature is 17-25°C or 62-77°F (air-conditioning).
Fire/Smoke Protection - In case of fire emergency, the SET center relies on its own fire detection system, complemented with a FM-200 non toxic, fire extinguishing, eco-gas.
Security - The colocation facility is constantly monitored 24 x 7 and controlled by staff at the Telesmart Telekom's Network Operations Centre (NOC).
