Physical installation, power up and testing of Data Centre server and networking equipment
One of the most fundamental elements when implementing and installing data centre equipment is the physical “racking and stacking” of equipment into cabinets and racks.
At face value, it is a straightforward task. This is not always the case. Indigo’s data centre technicians have the knowledge, skills and experience to deliver a first-time right network build. They will undertake the site survey, check the deliveries, install the equipment, verify the basic configuration, patch through the required circuits with the required labelling, and power up your equipment.
To streamline ongoing Smart Hands support, completed handover documentation including digital pictures of the entire “as built” installation will be provided.
