    Course Description:Installing equipment in a data center entails much more than what most engineers might think. The traditional way of finding the first available rack with space and then plugging in the equipment and turning it on could lead to risky scenarios and even costly down time. Especially in todays environment, special care needs to be given to feed and phase balancing of the electrical system, cooling and airflow, floor loading capabilities, EMF, rack location and equipment location within the rack and many more factors.

    This course will provide anybody involved with installing ICT (Information and Communication Technology) equipment in the data center valuable lessons on how to effectively install equipment without causing potential short term and long term negative effect which might impact equipment reliability and ultimately business downtime.
