EDF partners with Nexans for Data Centre extension

Electricité de France (EDF) opts for Nexans MPO fibre solution

Headquartered in Paris, Électricité de France (EDF) is amongst the globe’s foremost electricity producers and distributors. In recent years, it has provided 22% of the EU’s electricity. In 2010, EDF issued a call for bids for installing its main Data Centre in Val-de-Rueil which was won by RJ45 Technologies, a Nexans partner, for a proposal centered on Nexans performance.

Called Noé, the project involved the complete infrastructure installation of six of the Data Centre’s eight rooms, each having 500m² of operating surface area. RJ45 Technologies, EDF's business partner,  provided full backbone support using Nexans’LANmark-OF cables pre-fitted with multifibre push-on (MPO) connectors.
