ZTE Corp., a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the mobile internet, extended its expertise to launch the DITO Super Core Data Center in Batangas province.
ZTE president Wan Min said the data center complies with the uptime tier III design standard and will become the first in the Philippines to pass such standard certification.
“We can regard the DITO Super Core Data Center as the heart of the body. Only a safe and healthy beating heart can support the business. The data center adopts the advanced and innovative technology in the industry. Through its multiple-level protections, the data center is truly reliable,” he said.
“It will also become the first uptime tier-III data center in the Philippines. By adhering to energy conservation and emission reduction, it has achieved lower power usage effectiveness with an intelligent energy management system, which is efficient and environmentally friendly,” he said.
The data center is a crucial partnership between ZTE and DITO Telecommunity, one of the major telecommunications companies in the Philippines.
The DITO Super Core Data Center is designed to further improve local digital infrastructure and enhance data services. The design of the data center focuses on the security of network transmission through resiliency against natural disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes.
Min said the facilities pay more attention to the growing concern of the telecommunications industry on energy efficiency and environmental protection in its design and operations.
“ZTE has shared its rich end-to-end expertise from analyzing local process specifications in the early stage of the project, consultation on construction solutions, to the design of solutions, and project delivery, ensuring the smooth and timely turnover of the data center,” he said.
ZTE’s iDCIM intelligent management system has been adopted in the building equipment management to improve the operation efficiency of the data center and achieve green energy savings. The system manages operation parameters of the data center in real-time, to provide data support for efficient energy saving and O&M.
Compared to the traditional data center featuring multiple interfaces, complex procedures and long construction period, the DITO Super Core Data Center employs ZTE’s micro-module solution, which is modular and standardized. Multiple modules can be installed in parallel, enabling the delivery time to be shortened by 60 percent.
The launch of the DITO Super Core Data Center solidifies the commitment of DITO Telecommunity to providing world-class telecommunication services for the Filipinos, thus boosting the digital transformation of the Philippines.
