Contract # GS00T01AHD0002
Proposal to Add Federal Telecommunications Service Long Distance (FTS LD)
Back end connectivity options are available including Frame Relay, private line,
local switched, and circuit switched services.
Security is provided 24x7 and includes closed circuit monitors, secure card key
access, biometric scanners, man traps and alarmed doors. Guards maintain access to
the loading dock and security personnel also monitor each center. Building and
environmental alarms are monitored locally in each of the centers by a 24x7
maintenance staff and remotely by the AT&T NOC in San Diego, CA.
Each center has dual UPS, with multiple modules synchronized to work in unison or
independently. UPS systems receive power from commercial power feeders and
standby generators and are designed to support the full load at 90 Watt per square
foot for 15 minutes via its external battery plant.
In case of a commercial power failure, multiple standby generators are available to
provide power to the center within one minute of a commercial power outage. The
one minute gap is covered by the UPS battery system to ensure no impact on the
Government's equipment is experienced. During an extended commercial power
outage, the diesel generators provide power using the fuel stored on site. Fuel
suppliers are on standby to provide additional service.
Fire suppression in the centers is achieved through pre action dry pipe systems and
state of the art VESDA (air sampling) smoke detection and alarm systems. VESDA
systems are 100 times more sensitive than conventional fire detection systems.
Detectors are grouped into different zones. When one or more detectors detect smoke,
the fire alarm panel opens the deluge valve to fill the sprinkler piping with water. In
case of an actual fire, the seal on the sprinkler heads will melt and discharge water on
the affected area. Water will not be discharged in unaffected areas.
