OrionStellar, one of Sri Lanka’s Telco-neutral High Density Data Centre located in Colombo’s Orion ICT Park, has achieved the ANSI/TIA-942-B:2017 – Rated 3 constructed facility certification, validating OrionStellar as a data center provider with world-class facilities.

This assurance of quality performance and connectivity positions Orion Stellar as a provider of exceptional, globally accepted telecommunications services.

The ANSI/TIA-942 (also known as TIA-942) is an international Telecommunications Infrastructure standard for Data Centers. OrionStellar was initially accredited with “TIA Rated 3” Design certification during the construction stage. By securing the ANSI/TIA-942-B:2017 – Rated 3 constructed facility certification, OrionStellar has once again achieved another milestone by becoming the first facility of its kind in the island to be listed as a TIA-942 Rated 3 constructed facility.

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) standard is a widely recognized and globally implemented standard for ensuring conformity with international best practices. The Telecommunications Industry Association offers TIA-942 certification programs through TIA-licensed certification bodies that assess and certify compliance to the TIA-942 standard. ANSI/TIA-942, the American National Standard (ANS), specifies the minimum requirements for data center infrastructure and covers all aspects of the physical data center including site location, architecture, security, safety, fire suppression, electrical, mechanical and telecommunication systems.

OrionStellar was certified as “TIA Rated 3” Data Center Facility by a trusted authorization body, Global Data Centre Engineering (GDCE), Tokyo, Japan.

The certification guarantees concurrent maintainability in critical infrastructure equipped with redundant capacity components and multiple independent distribution paths in conformity with all applicable global standards. Every capacity component, including elements which are part of the distribution path, can be removed/replaced/serviced on a planned basis without disrupting the ICT capabilities to the end user.

To obtain the certification, the OrionStellar data center facility was physically inspected onsite during the construction and completion process, while the final constructed facility was comprehensively audited for conformity to ANSI/TIA-942 for the respective rating level.

Hence, being a “TIA Rated 3 “facility conforms to delivering the highest level of availability and resiliency in terms of uninterrupted power and cooling to the enterprises hosting their IT infrastructure at OrionStellar. This is undoubtedly an assurance of quality to stakeholders.

OrionStellar Managing Director and CEO Jeevan Gnanam said, “We are always committed to simplifying digital infrastructure challenges for Sri Lankan and regional enterprises. With this latest TIA-Rated 3 facility accreditation, we reinforce our position as a reliable destination for deployment of digital services and provide credible assurance to our customers and stakeholders. With this achievement, we mark another first for digital infrastructure in the country.”
