Creating Unprecedented Connectivity
Barcelona CLS is located in Sant Adrià de Besós in the Eastern of Barcelona inside the Metropolitan Area.
The facility is a two story building that has been designed by AFR-IX telecom based on the experience of building multiple Cable Landing Stations (ACE submarine system, SAIL, Ceiba, etc. ) under rigorous standards.
Barcelona CLS is connected from the building interior to dedicated ducts extended by two diverse routes to each one of the two Beach Manholes for submarine cable installation.
The base level includes:
- Coil Room for land route Subsea Systems.
- Power rooms AC &DC.
- Battery Roms.
- Diverse Power Transformers and multiple accesses to the power grid.
- Gensets and tanks.
- Solar power integrated system.
- N+1 fault tolerance.
- Perimetral security and Access Secure Area.
- Secure Loading Access.
Barcelona CLS is equipped with advance security equipment, techniques, and procedures to control access to the CLS. Keeping your cable systems an equipment safe requires security controls, and system checks built layer by layer into the structure of the Cable Station. Our Security Policy and implementation extends from the physical building itself, the software systems, and the personnel involved in daily tasks.
Barcelona CLS has been designed and equipped with 8 colocation rooms for subsea systems, each one of the able to accommodate a subsea system including PFE and SLTE for multiple fiber pairs.
At the same level, two Data Center Collocation Rooms are available for collocation facilities, to interconnect the subsea systems with backhaul providers and fiber networks.
Collocation availability for Data Center rooms is Open to on a first come and first serve basis, with the possibility to lease Secured cages, secure full racks or half racks.
Interconnection is provided via a Meet Me room facility.
Fiber operators that are present at Barcelona CLS are able to provide connectivity to the Main Data Centers in the Barcelona area, as well as access to national and International fiber networks.
A 24/7 manned Network Operation Center is active at the second floor and provides Operation and Maintenance Services. Hand and Eyes services are provided at Barcelona CLS on working hours, and after hours under request.
Barcelona CLS building has been designed with high energy efficiency standards and with the highest level of renewable energy possible. It offers unparalleled operating efficiency and security with state-of-the-art power redundancy, solar panel generation, fire detection and suppression, precise controlled cooling systems, card access and camera monitoring systems.
