NaMeX technological infrastructure is currently hosted inside CINECA datacenter, which covers an area of nearly 500 square meters, in the heart of Rome, San Lorenzo, not far from Termini Station, Sapienza University and National Research Center offices.
The datacenter is equipped with high standard service continuity and availability systems, essential to meet IXP requirements. Datacenter power systems rely on a double 800 KVA transformer, which supplies two separate lines, both protected by UPS systems and generator. Datacenter areas are provided with AC 220V supplies, with either 16A or 32A capacity.
Inside the datacenter, several operations areas can be found:
- Carrier room: dedicated to the housing of carriers’ transmissive devices and to L1/L2 interconnections between carriers, by means of dedicated cabling infrastructures (meet-me area).
- Housing area: dedicated to the housing of carriers’ PoPs
- NAMEX room: dedicated to the exchange point and to the housing of members’ L3 devices
NaMeX provides full 24x7x365 operational support, by means of its NOC service.
