Largest Telecom in South America Selects Chatsworth Products Server Cabinets for New Data Center
CPI Passive Cooling® Technology Helps Company Achieve LEED Gold Status 

Vivo Data Center Tour

MEXICO CITY, June 11, 2014 — Telefônica Vivo, the largest integrated telecom in South America, provides services to more than 100 million clients in Brazil. When it became necessary to consolidate seven data centers into one facility, Vivo trusted Chatsworth Products (CPI) to provide a solution that would not only help sustain the network, but make it the most energy-efficient data center in South America.

The challenge was to build a data center that could sustain all of the company’s prepay and contract mobile segment for the next 10 years, while adhering to the company’s strict commitment to sustainability and efficiency in all operational aspects. One key component in achieving this would be a server cabinet that could provide reliable equipment support and the best airflow management capabilities possible.

Silvio Mendonça, Vivo’s data center manager, knew the company’s servers were becoming denser and that heat distribution, especially in high-density spots, would be a huge challenge.

To resolve this issue, Mendonça chose CPI’s GF-Series GlobalFrame® Cabinet System with Vertical Exhaust Ducts, a combination that supports high-density applications using CPI Passive Cooling® Solutions to isolate and redirect hot exhaust air out of the room.

“We studied a lot of options. Every company offered cabinets with Vertical Exhaust Ducts, but none of them was able to show the CFD (computational fluid dynamics) analysis that we requested, except for CPI,” Mendonça said.

The outstanding results Vivo achieved using CPI Passive Cooling helped make Telefonica’s data center the country’s first data center to achieve LEED Gold Certification and Tier III status for design and construction.

“We measure our data center today, and it’s more efficient than what the CFD said. The PUE on the CFD was 1.7 and in use it’s 1.5, which is very impressive in Brazil’s standards. The combination of everything we did in the data center gave us points toward the LEED certification process,” Mendonça stated. CPI proved that this rack is THE rack that we needed,”
