Certified TIA-942 Design Consultant (CTDC)

4.5/5

Data centres play a large role in the function of many businesses. If the data centre experiences any type of downtime, it could lead to significant losses for the company. To try and avoid this, many organizations choose to build resilience into their facilities at various levels, such as with the infrastructure and ICT layer. However, it’s possible to either under- or over-specify if recommendations from vendors, consultants, and public domain information are followed blindly. It’s often better to use a commonly accepted standard as the basis for the design and build principles.

Understanding the ANSI/TIA-942 standard is important for designing and operating a data center successfully. This three-day course will cover how to design a data center according to the ANSI/TIA-942 Standard, including different implementation options.
