eCentre Prefabricated Data Centre Buildings

With its business rapidly expanding, ACS was fast outgrowing its main data centre facility in the centre of the Angolan capital Luanda. But not only was it too small, its antiquated construction made it unsuitable to house highly sensitive ICT equipment.

The solution was for ACS to move its entire operation to an entirely new site that would enable them to plan for long-term business expansion in the country’s most advanced telecommunications facility.

MTN wanted to evolve from traditional telephony service provision to a more mature set of mobile services such as broadband Internet, mobile money, video on demand, etc. It also wanted to establish the capability to create an entirely new market in the country – providing innovative data hosting services for its Enterprise customers.

In order to achieve these ambitious goals, a major infrastructure upgrade and expansion project needed to
be undertaken.

Vodacom needed to establish a new disaster recovery data centre as quickly as possible, in a guaranteed timescale to a guaranteed cost.

With suitable vacant property being scarce in central Maputo, the only space available immediately was a helipad on top of an existing six-storey building – a formidable construction challenge.

Vodacom Tanzania is the leading mobile network operator in Tanzania, with a reputation for quality that is second to none.

However, when a battery-related fire at Vodacom’s main data and switching centre in Dar es Salaam shut their entire network down, all national and international voice and data services to all subscribers were lost for 16 hours.

It was a major disaster and a new energy centre was needed extremely fast.

MTN Ghana needed to quickly add network capacity in order to continue to meet the needs of an increasingly demanding market place, and so remain the country’s leading telecoms company.

By deploying Flexenclosure’s prefabricated modular eCentre data centres, MTN Ghana was able to rapidly add three new data centres to its network, totalling 2,000m² of open plan space, and thereby expand its network capacity in a way that wouldn’t otherwise have been possible.
