Industry recommendation for comms room temperature range
We are placing some equipment in a 3rd party telecoms POP. A survey revealed what we thought was a rather high temperature at 30 degrees centigrade. The air conditioning seems to have failed.
Ambient temperature about 6 degrees.
Is there an industry standard which relates to comms rooms which I can refer to?
We intend placing switches routers DSLAMS etc in the POP.
The switch has a range in its specification up to 40 degrees but I am concerned the temperature in the summer could go higher and get close to that if the problem is not resolved.
The maintenance engineer who visited (we reported it as a fault) said the temperature is not ususual and not something to be concerned about....
