The more recent definitions of "smart buildings" focus on the use of a "structured cabling system" or "structured connectivity solution" (SCS) to provide a common cabling foundation upon which various building services can be delivered: data networking, telephony, environmental controls, security systems, etc. As shown in the diagram at right, a SCS provides heavy-duty connectivity between the various floors of a building, as well as individual network connections to each workstation in each tenant area. The entire building SCS is connected to one or more telecommunications service providers at a "building distribution facility" (BDF).
Traditional Datacenter Electrical Design" discusses how datacenter electrical systems are typically designed:
- "Increasing Electrical Distribution Efficiency" highlights the opportunities that we have found to improve modularity and efficiency in datacenter electrical design.
- "Flexibility Through Modularity" shows how our design choices create flexible datacenters that contribute to business agility.
- "Extending the Datacenter Lifecycle" discusses the importance of coordinating expected datacenter lifecycles with equipment refresh cycles. It shows the many ways in which datacenters can be built from day one to support future expansion.
