On the Edge, in the Cloud, ANSI/BICSI 002-2019 Does Them All

ANSI/BICSI 002-2019, BICSI's international best-seller, covers all major systems found within a data center. Written by industry professionals from all major disciplines, this standard not only lists what a data center requires, but also provides ample recommendations on the best methods of implementing a design to fulfill your needs.

While the traditional data center continues to be the focus, the breadth of content can also be applied to modular, containerized, edge and hyperscale data centers.

In additional to general content updates to cover recent advances in technology systems, such as OM5 optical fiber cabling and Li-ion batteries, colocation planning and concepts from the Open Compute Project® were added while cooling system, building and facility systems and commissioning were all expanded. Revision work also included refining or moving data center operations content into BICSI 009-2019.

Highlights As the foundation standard for data center design, BICSI 002 features 17 chapters and 8 appendices, spread over 500 pages, covering the following and more:

  • Design methodology
  • Facilities, cabling, network,services and applications
  • Data center service outsourcing
  • Site selection and space planning
