The construction of our mantrap is underway. When completed, it will feature a multi-factor, five-point authentication system through a combination of keycard use, PIN entry, and an iris scan. All visitors will be required to pass through the mantrap to enter our datacenter and/or view our meet-me room.
Our meet-me room is approaching completion! Take a look at this time-elapsed video showing the installation of ladder racks. Carrier fiber from our cross-connect room runs inside conduit along the racks to the provider partner equipment inside our meet-me room.
Another carrier is in our facility. Level (3) Communications pulled fiber into our cross-connect room, joining our other providers.
As these photos show, the fiber was brought into the cross-connect room from our meet-me vaults, where it will be put into a protective conduit and run along ladder racks out into the meet-me room.
The first two provider carriers are in Phoenix NAP’s cross-connect room. AGL Networks and AboveNet pulled fiber from our meet-me vaults located near the edge of our property into our facility.
As indicated in these photos, AboveNet’s fiber backbone features diverse east and west routes around Phoenix, and our meet-me vaults are configured to support multiple providers.
