Customers have access to a redundant high-capacity power supply, scalable for future expansion. Power is isolated between customers, and with Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and stand-by diesel generators on site to ensure a resilient location for important infrastructure equipment.
Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus (VESDA) is installed in every facility. These highly sensitive smoke detectors, which are linked to the Building Management System and monitored continually from a network operations centre, provide very early detection to help avoid fire, loss and business disruption. This is coupled with an environmentally-friendly gas-based or water mist fire suppression system to put out fires, with minimal damage to equipment.
To ensure performance and avoid equipment failure, all data floors are managed such that air entering customers’ equipment is maintained at a controlled temperature and relative humidity.
Building Management System (BMS)
All TelecityGroup AMS1 facilities operate computerised Building Management Systems that monitor and remotely operate sensors covering electrical, mechanical, fire detection and leak detection systems.

Access to the buildings, data floors and individual areas are via individually programmed access cards, and visual identification. Whenever you swipe your card tag over the sensors to gain access to the building, your digital photograph is displayed and on-site technicians verify the request before allowing access.
Standardised procedures ensure you and your nominated staff can gain access to your equipment whenever you require, day or night
