As Australia’s first Tier IV data centre, Micron21 sets the national benchmark for reliability, security and technological capability.
From their cutting-edge facility that features 2N+ topology, continuous power, cooling, physical and electronic security, Micron21 provides mission critical hosting services, co-location, security and managed services to all industry sectors – from the largest corporates enterprises to government and SMEs.
Micron21 also operates a global network, with over 700Gbit of capacity. It manages the second largest peered network in Australia and delivers 1.2Tbps of capacity to each and every rack. When Micron21 sought a structured cabling provider to fit out their new Melbourne data centre in 2019, they required a delivery partner that could meet the high demands of their network. They chose Codecom for their sound understanding of Micron21’s network requirements and capability to deliver a superior product.
As a company defined by scalability, rapid growth, and superior technical evolution, Micron21 needed a delivery partner with a versatile range of solutions, outstanding technical know-how and with an innovation ethos that was equal to their own.
Specifically, Micron21 required Codecom to solve the ever-present challenge to maximise data centre space, while offering a combined copper and fibre solution to give them flexibility in meeting customer interface requirements.
Codecom presented their CXD 1RU Hybrid Fibre and Copper Modular Patch Panel as a hybrid / multimedia solution, as it allows for termination of both fibre and copper within the same 1RU chassis.
The LHS of the panel accommodates 3 x 24F LC/PC Cassettes (72ports of fibre), which were supplied as splice. However, these cassettes also come in MPO and Pre-term for both Singlemode & Multimode fibre options. The RHS of the panel accommodates a 12port Keystone Copper CAT6 interface.
The application of the CXD in this way optimises space within the rack, while delivering dual cabling technologies for diverse applications.
From a form factor perspective, the 1RU chassis is also extremely compact, compared to other bulkier options on the market. The integrated cable management was also a desirable feature.
Codecom were unique in their ability to provide this kind of hybrid solution, with the density of both copper and fibre required for their specific application in a minimal 1RU footprint.
As the second major project Micron21 has completed with Codecom as delivery partner, the installation was delivered on time and budget, to great response.
From Codecom’s perspective, the project was a fantastic opportunity to collaborate for the second time with such industry leaders on a landmark installation.
