CTC Wireless Internet – Kansas City Data Center (Holly)

CTC Wireless Internet’s Kansas City data center is located at 324 E. 11th St., Kansas City, MO 64105. This hardened data center bunker is a building within building with concrete block house design entirely contained in a grounded razor wired fence that was built by GTE/Genuity in 2000. The facility is a mid metro location minimizing the tornado risk, situated above 500 years floodplain, and can withstand an F5 storm. The data center provides lighting parking lots and plentiful street parking spaces.

The data center offers flexible colocation space options including one third cabinet, half cabinet, full cabinet and customized cage space; and also provides shelve space for tower or non-mountable server and workstations. The data center provides 5,700 square feet of space with an expansion facility to another 4,000 square feet. The data center supports massive floor loading, and provides 16′ ceiling height and roof access for wireless providers. The data center provides excellent security measures including video surveillance of entire facility by 15 security cameras, staff controlled security bunker, steel doors with security rating, redundant power for security system, local audio security monitoring, locked cabinets, escorted access, and biometric controlled access into facility. Multiple fire detection and suppression system protects data center from any fire spark including hand held extinguishers of all types, FM200 gas based suppression system in MMR and Zone 3, dry pipe emergency fire suppression, and 4 hours rated fire doors in all zones. The data center has no wooden or frame construction, and electrical system has multiple layers for fire protection.

The Kansas data center is a reliable and fault tolerant N+1 power infrastructure. The 1.2 MW of 480V AC power is served to the data center by Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L). The data center also benefits from green energy that uses 25 kVA solar power systems providing as much as 20% of daytime power load and up to 10% of total power load. The entire critical infrastructure is protected by N+1 UPS system on the loss of utility power. The emergency power to data center is provided by 500 kVA diesel generators in N+1 redundancy in case of prolonged power outage. The data center has 1,500 gallons of fuel storage tanks sufficient for 300 hours of runtime, and is tested weekly and exercised for 2 hours weekly. The data center delivers both AC and DC power options through redundant A+B power feed to each cabinet. The A/B DC power plant is capable of 600 Amps of -48V DC based on Loran rectifier system, and is supported by a dedicated 100 kVA diesel generator. The data center supports higher power densities up to 300 watts per square feet, and typically include up to 30 Amps power in full cabinet. The data center is protected by whole building surge suppression system with over 20 lightning rods on the property and massive grounding system. The data center has green passive cooling and venting system with N+1 HVAC units effectively controlling the temperature and humidity levels.

CTC Wireless Internet’s 324 E. 11th St. data center is a carrier neutral facility with connectivity to multiple carriers and service providers. The data center has three fiber entrances into building, and provides dark fiber services. The data center has seven local fiber providers in building and fourteen in vault.
