The client is a major automotive company. As part of expanding their Infrastructure they planned to establish a new datacenter for UD/Volvo trucks in a high security facility in two phases. The project consists of installations and cabling on-site based on rack elevation diagrams and cable route diagrams. The equipment that we had to install included F5 and Palo Alto Firewalls, Cisco UTP and Fiber switches as well as Dell Blade servers and Cisco UCS servers.

Phase I:

Phase I was scheduled for two days and consisted of 29 rental devices to be installed, patched and labeled by a three Engineers.


Phase II: Phase II was the installation of 15 devices such as Cisco APIC controllers and Fiber Interconnect devices.
