The IPC 4 data centre in Hagsfeld looks like an oversized bunker from the outside the fence system is reminiscent of a prison's high-security wing. Inside, unknown background noises, flashing servers, signal systems and an unbelievable number of colourful, well-sorted cable harnesses await you. During the tour, we will provide some insight into the technical world of a data centre: redundant power supply, emergency power diesel units, optimal air-conditioning, video surveillance, access control system, separation system and fire detection and extinguishing systems.
We offer two tours on the hour, each with 15 people. The duration of each tour is approximately 45 minutes. While you wait, you can grab a small snack; we are available to answer any questions. We are also thrilled that Breitbandkabel Karlsruhe (BLK) will be providing information on the topic of broadband expansion in the region on this evening.
