Propelled by the growing adoption of cloud technologies, AI, IoT, 5G, and big data, the data center market has seen massive growth in recent years, with new data centers being built around the world at a fast pace. Whether they are in-house data centers for some of the largest and most influential companies, or built by specialized vendors offering infrastructure services, data centers fulfill a critical role in maintaining the continuity of a business.

Downtime at a data center can have an enormous economic impact and needs to be avoided at all costs. Yet guaranteeing uptime can be complex. This is why Convergint partners with Teledyne FLIR to help reduce these complexities. Teledyne FLIR has purpose-built perimeter intruder detection system (PIDS) and condition monitoring technologies that enhance perception and awareness from securing the perimeter to improving efficiencies on the interior.

5 technologies that optimize data centers

Together, Convergint and Teledyne FLIR can provide state-of-the-art technologies to help increase data center security measures and address needs, including:

  • Look beyond the fence line
    FLIR radars are the ideal layer of protection, dynamically mapping human and vehicle movement, delivering early warnings of threats, and improving intruder tracking especially when integrated with cameras.

  • Complement any perimeter system
    The rugged FLIR cameras integrate thermal imaging with 4K imaging for more accurate intruder detection and classification. The technology in these cameras enables higher detection precision, classification accuracy, geolocation of targets, and resilience against false alarms along a data center’s fence line.

  • Integrate technology and software
    FLIR offers command and control software that provides a user-friendly interface that gives security operators control of their devices and expands their situational awareness of the perimeter with forensic-quality imaging.

  • Extend beyond the perimeter
    FLIR’s condition monitoring technologies are designed to make asset monitoring and maintenance simultaneously safer and more efficient. Identifying and correcting hidden problems before they create unplanned outages and/or undetected degradation saves personnel the cost of downtime and equipment failure alike.

  • Protect personnel during energized equipment inspections
    The FLIR IR Window is a broadband crystal lens that transmits short, mid, and longwave IR that allows illumination to shine through, adding a barrier between personnel and energized equipment that protects them from arc flash accidents.
