MCI WorldCom provides one of the highest degrees of reliability in the telecommunications, Internet and data services to their customers. This level of reliability extends from the telecommunication equipment to the building’s mechanical and electrical systems. A highly dependable telecommunication network cannot maintain reliable service if the mechanical and electrical support systems do not achieve the same degree of reliability.
If the mechanical systems were to fail, the telecommunications equipment could fail within 15 min as space temperatures exceed equipment thresholds. A telecommunications provider must take extensive measures in the design, construction, and operation of the building’s mechanical systems to ensure a sustainable environment for the telecommunications equipment. A meticulously designed mechanical system will not operate effectively unless it is constructed and operated as designed.
