All data center equipment racks are anchored to a concrete slab below the raised floor. In seismically-active regions, an additional layer of protection, earthquake bracing minimizes potential movement during seismic events. CenturyLink takes great care to meet or exceed stringent local building code requirements. In certain locations, seismic isolation equipment is employed to further cushion the potential effects of tremors.


Each of CenturyLink’s data centers offer one of the most aggressive temperature and humidity SLAs in the industry.

To ensure sustainability we utilize:

  • High-volume, zoned temperature control systems
  • Hot and cold aisle containment to most efficiently distribute
  • conditioned air in the raised floor area, enable environmental sustainability, and maximize precious power resources
  • Multiple air conditioning units to dissipate excess heat
  • N 1 HVAC units monitored through the building automation system with individual unit failure alarm triggers
  • All Data centers managed to ASHRAE Compliant Targets
    • SDC Temperature Within the allowable ASHRAE
    • recommendation of 59° F to 90° F
    • SDC Non-condensing Humidity Range Within the allowable ASHRAE recommendations

MPLS DSL pricing starting under $100 per month, including equipment!

If your business is growing but your data traffic is slowing, it might be time to review an MPLS network from BBC. With Class of Service (CoS), you can optimize your bandwidth usage and get the most out of your network. And it can also boost your productivity and bottom line -- at a cost that's more affordable than you might think. As you consider adopting MPLS, it is important to understand the benefits of MPLS in comparison to your existing network infrastructure as well as how service and support vary across MPLS providers.

BBC can offer Class of Service traffic management with high-speed, low-cost DSL access, which puts the performance gain of MPLS networks within reach of more businesses. Because MPLS is highly scalable and less complex than its predecessors, businesses gain more flexibility, less overhead and improved control over network costs. MPLS makes it easy to reroute traffic priorities on the fly, or add new locations to the network whenever you need to.

  • Prioritize/optimize voice, video and data applications
  • Fit MPLS in your budget with T1 and/or DSL
  • Reduce transit delays and transaction times
  • Divert traffic around link failures and network congestion
  • Add new locations quickly
  • Enhance security and simplify disaster recovery
  • Streamline network implementation and management
  • Share a network-based Internet access port without provisioning separate access circuits
