The story

Frankfurt is a major location for digital business assuring best connectivity and fastest performance for data hosted. With 45 facilities across Europe, including 9 interconnected modular data centres in the Frankfurt campus, Interxion is a major provider of carrier and cloud-neutral colocation data centre services.

For its new €33.8 billion state-of-the-art project, Interxion needed fail-safe, efficient, secure and sustainably powered data centres, able to offer operational excellence and business continuity to their own customers.

The solution

Working with trusted German manufacturer OBO Bettermann, we delivered a high-quality steel cable management system, provded with static load calculations to confirm the support system proposed was adequate to carry cable loads.

Direct deliveries organised from the manufacturer’s facilities in Menden proved to be a major time-saving for the project.

  • Cable basket
  • Cable ladder
  • Cable tray

The success

  • High-performance and cost-effective solution
  • Project delivered with significant time and money savings
  • Facilities powered adequately to support intensive activity of the data centre.
