Rosenberger addresses network expansion constraints for Enterprise users and IOT/MEC roll out challenges with the introduction of the LYRA Intelligent Micro Data Center (IMDC), a self-contained ‘Data Center in a box’ solution. Providing Power, Cooling, Uninterruptible Power Supply, Cable management and cloud remote-monitoring, the Lyra IMDC can be installed in less than 3 hours with 40% space saving versus traditional Data Center installations. Applications include small data centers, office areas and EDGE deployment.

Providing a completely integrated network solution for small to medium sized enterprise applications, Lyra has the advantages of quick installation and simple maintenance, helping customers quickly deploy a data center solution. Lyra Intelligent Micro Datacenter adopts a modular design, containing the following modules: power distribution box, UPS or battery pack, precision air conditioning, monitoring management system, PDU, cabinet and sealed components.

Designed for Network Architects who need to install rapid deployable network resources or have real estate limitations, the Lyra IMDC footprint requires only 600mm x 1200mm footprint, offering the IT User 27U of space and 24 power outlets for network equipment. Lyra can be installed in an existing office environment with <50dB noise and be redeployed when required. Lyra offers a true ‘Mobile Edge Located’ Data Center solution, being able to be deployed alongside Mobile Operator RAN equipment.

Rosenberger offers Lyra in two cooling/power capacity options of 3.5kW or 6kW applications, has a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of <1.5 and can be scaled up to 8 units to work collectively. Lyra utilizes an internal ‘Precision Air conditioning’ system and is easily managed by the interactive LCD display on the front panel. Lyra has built in smoke detection and can use 3G/4G/Wireless connectivity options for monitoring backhaul. UPS time is optional up to 120 minutes
