EHRM Upgrade Infrastructure Ph3 Data Center And It Closets

(VA Puget Sound Health Care System American Lake Campus)

The project renovated the existing main data center and 14 IT closets in 13 buildings on the Seattle campus of the VA Puget Sound Health Care System, American Lake, per the OIT VA Enterprise Facility IT Support Infrastructure Standards Manual. Design of the new IT closets included equipment racks, patch panels, grounding, and new cabling as necessary. All cabling rated below Category 6 was replaced with Category 6a cabling. Of the (14) Telecommunications Rooms included in this project, (3) required, and are planned for, relocation to alternate spaces, (7) require upgrading cabling to current standards, and (7) required other modifications – often significant – to bring the spaces closer to meeting standards.

The main electrical and OIT goal of this project was to standardize a complete upgrade of the mixed category ethernet cabling using CAT 6A and also redundant Fiber distribution feeds from building to building and adding new standard OIT approved rack mounted power outlets and UPS’s.
