Rainford Solutions has a long track record with original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) that provide the high-tech systems used across the market sectors that we service, for both indoor and outdoor deployment.
Working together with our client’s in-house team, Rainford’s specialist enclosure engineers help to optimise the total system. This contributes to uptime and availability, while reducing faults and hence total cost of ownership (TCO). Considerations include:
- Managing heat dissipation and airflow between hot and cold aisles or plenums
- Supporting neat, easy to maintain copper and optical cable runs
- Protecting against hostile environments such as water, dust, corrosive atmospheres
- Human factors to reduce installation and commissioning errors and field service time
- Consideration of vibration, seismic or blast shock conditions if appropriate
- Shielding from interference due to radio frequency (RF) and electromagnetic fields (EMC)
- Remote monitoring of environmental parameters, door security
- Integration with DCIM systems
- Physical security features against vandalism and intrusion
Project - Reduce Wiring Time
Project: Reduce Wiring Time
Sector: Tier 1 Telecom Operator
A national ‘flag carrier’ operator was implementing a new 10Gb network layer and wanted to optimise the delivery supply chain to both accelerate deployment time and reduce cost.
Previously components were delivered to site and then power wiring beautifully laid in by experienced wiremen prior to equipment installation. Site to site this might vary according the wireman’s individual style. The serial nature of the work and number of trained staff made it a project bottleneck.
Working closely with the client’s subject matter experts a very detailed Statement of Requirements was defined with all applicable regulations and in-house standards detailed. Building to that standard in a factory environment using repeatable processes and machine cut wiring lengths created a productionised low cost outcome identical to the Gold Build.
Rainford Solutions has completed almost 4,000 customer projects to date, which gives us a huge library of building blocks from previous designs and experience to draw upon. It means that unique solutions do not begin from a completely blank piece of paper, so development costs and crucially time to market are not inhibitors to a highly tailored product.
The final racks now include AC and DC wiring pre-installed and labelled; they are delivered to tile location in the exchange (central office) so that it just needs to be connected to site power and fibre.
The new approach reduces time on site, errors, project management overheads, and often multiple visits, leading to a step change in efficiency and total cost as well as enabling much more rapid rollout for the operator to achieve the service upgrade.
