“A major part of our focus at Ooredoo is enabling the best possible customer experience, which is why we are continuing to invest in emerging technologies in our data center to meet our end customers’ high performance services availability requirements,” said Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad bin Nasser Al-Thani, chief new business officer, Ooredoo. “We have invested in technologies that can support customers’ data center hosting requirements in the next decade, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
Inc.,a global leader in infrastructure solutions for
communications networks, was
chosen to partner with Ooredoo at its Qatar data
center in Mesaimeer to create a smarter data center by implementing innovative intelligent
LED lighting and infrastructure solutions.
Ooredoo implemented CommScope’s Redwood®, imVision® and
SYSTIMAX® solutions to support a fully integrated, intelligent IT and
facilities infrastructure at its data center.
The technology enables Ooredoo to offer an efficient, high performance
environment as part of its long-term customer strategy.
“A major part of our focus at Ooredoo is
enabling the best possible customer experience, which is why we are continuing
to invest in emerging technologies in our data center to meet our end customers’
high performance services availability requirements,” said Sheikh Nasser bin
Hamad bin Nasser Al-Thani,chief new business officer, Ooredoo. “We have
invested in technologies that can support customers’ data center hosting
requirements in the next decade, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
The Redwood intelligent lighting solution from CommScope enables Ooredoo to individually address, monitor and manage
the lighting to dramatically improve the operational efficiency of the Ooredoo data
center. The Redwood solution is based on a user-friendly application that features
fixtures and sensors that are individually addressable. This design allows a single user to create
zones and policies to achieve energy reduction in accordance with the organization’s
sustainability goals. The sensor network enables Ooredoo to monitor the
temperature, security, occupancy and energy usage of the lighting
infrastructure to establish efficient energy management policies.
With this implementation, Ooredoo’s data center
is believed to be the first tier 3 data center in the Gulf Cooperation Council to deploy smart intelligent LED lighting for
data center use.
“We are extremely proud to be selected by Ooredoo
to support this important project,” said Jim Curran, vice president, Enterprise
Sales, CommScope. “We believe that the high performance and business impacting
capabilities of our intelligent infrastructure solutions will make a positive
difference for Ooredoo.”
The imVision intelligent connectivity management
solution seamlessly integrates with Ooredoo’s process flow and business continuity
policies specific to the network management, operational, active directory and data
center infrastructure management solutions.
This integration provides a real-time physical connectivity guide for all
networking and server hardware, as well as virtual servers. Ooredoo’s data center
is also the first tier
3 data center in Qatar to deploy imVision to offer intelligent and manageable
high speed copper and fiber cabling for all its data center offerings.
Ooredoo also deployed the SYSTIMAX® copper and
pre-terminated fiber solutions, which support the current 10Gb/s Ethernet
performance, with a clear upgrade path to 40G and 100G speeds in the future.
The facility is in compliance with world-class
carrier standards and provides local and regional organizations with a full
range of services. The first phase of the project was awarded and fully
implemented by CommScope in September.
