CPI’s GF-Series GlobalFrame® Cabinets Help Large Telecom in Brazil Achieve Gold LEED Status
June 18, 2014
Telefonica Vivo, the largest telecom in Brazil uses CPI’s GF-Series GlobalFrame® Cabinet System with custom made Vertical Exhaust Ducts in its state-of-the-art data center.
CPI’s GlobalFrame supports high-density applications using CPI Passive Cooling® Solutions, which isolate, redirect and recycle hot exhaust air, all while reducing operating costs.
This proven efficiency helped Vivo’s data center earn the country’s first LEED Gold Certification and Tier 3 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, plus increasing the temperature by one degree Celsius to 24 Celsius helped us get this PUE and it gave us points toward the LEED certification process,” said Silvio Mendonça, Vivo’s data center manager.
