Technical Specifications

  • Secure cabinets provide a high strength steel frame structure and are available in non-caged areas in all US data centers. Each secure cabinet provides a front and rear locking door. The cabinet is designed to house computer and networking equipment located in a common space area within the data center.
  • All US-based CenturyLink data centers provide uninterruptible power in-line with UPS and diesel generator backup in the event of a utility power failure. To conform to the National Electrical Code (NEC) for maximum power use, each power circuit is limited to 80% of the circuit breaker rating.
  • In the case of a redundant power configuration, the primary circuit will be loaded up to the designated capacity of the circuit, with no load on the redundant circuit until such time that the primary circuit may fail, or distribute the load between the two circuits (usually a 50/50 mix) so long as the total potential draw between the two circuits is below the capacity of primary circuit.
  • Cross Connect services allow customers to connect their cage/rack to a vendor providing services in a CenturyLink data center. The fiber cross-connect to extend a customer cage/rack allows a customer to connect two of their cage/racks together for the transfer of high bandwidth data that cannot be transferred over copper cross-connects due to a distance or a bandwidth limitation.
  • Gold Support Service provides network and systems remote or on-site (“hands-on”) support for designated customer environments within CenturyLink’s data centers.
