Security infrastructure includes:
- fire detection system
- anti-intrusion system
- access management system
- TVCC system
Smoke detection and evacuation system
Our structure is compliant with UNI 9795 regulations (second edition, March 1999) for smoke detection and notification systems. Each area is covered by the protection system, with the sole exception of restrooms. Areas are monitored by accurate analog smoke detectors. Installed next to each of the main security exits are dedicated fire alarm buttons, protected by glass panels, that can be broken in case of emergency.
Alarm devices are as follows:
- Optical/acoustic notification panels placed in the hallways between offices and production areas
- Optical/acoustic notification panels for evacuation of rooms if the fire extinguishing system is activated
- Optical/acoustic notification panels displaying “access denied” in those areas where fire extinguishing system is in action
- Central monitoring computer gathering and displaying alerts and forwarding them remotely for a real-time system status report.
Fire extinguishing system
Our extinguishing system is based on ARGON inert gas and features compartmenting of technological and technical areas. It can be activated by a fire extinguishing station which is connected with smoke detection system.
Our anti-intrusion system is based on volumetric sensors that monitor all areas of the Data Center and on magnetic contact theft-proof sensors installed on access doors. All sensors are connected to a central control station. All detectors used in our system are studied to guarantee a very fast detection of any real threat, and at the same time to have adequate margins to avoid ill-timed alarms. Moreover all doors, windows, and in general all frame elements are qualified by a high grade of steadiness and mechanical solidity.
The following types of detectors are installed:
- Volumetric detectors with double detection technology
- Vibration and/or lock-picking detectors
- Microwave and/or infrared external barriers
- Magnetic contacts
- Glass break detectors
Detectors are connected by a star-shape structure with balanced lines. Each sensor features a line for notification of alerts and/or failures. Cumulative connections (from one to four sensors) are present with the sole purpose of notifying tampering attempts on the other sensors in the area. All warnings coming from sensors are gathered and displayed on central monitoring computer, which has the ability to forward them remotely for a real-time system status report.
Access management system
Our electronic access management system is designed to organize and grant access to predefined restricted areas in a simple and flexible way. Such security system is structured to guarantee a high security level. Access management functions are optimized for the site’s peculiar security requirements. Every external and internal access to the Data Center is equipped with a badge reader for both directions, giving the possibility to check flawlessly in every moment the exact number of people inside the building.
The structure provides:
- Controlling of passages
- Management station with PC and network card
- Proximity reader
- Proximity reader/recorder
Detectors are connected by a star-shape structure with balanced lines. All warnings coming from detectors are gathered and displayed on the central monitoring computer, which has the ability to forward them remotely for a real-time system status report.
Video surveillance system
Internal and external video surveillance security system, completely built using digital technology. The system is supervised locally and, in case of emergency, remotely.
