Mascom is one of the two companies to establish, maintain and operate a GSM Mobile Network in Botswana. The Mascom network was launched five weeks after licensing, establishing a reputation of credibility and has been the market leader in Botswana from then on. ISF-Axe approached OneZero Consulting to design the electrical and electronic infrastructure for its new Innovation Centre in Phakalane. This facility will serve as Mascom’s main Technical Centre. It comprises a state of the art Data Centre (540sqm), with full N+1 redundancy Energy Centre capable of sustaining the facility in the case of a power failure or abnormal power conditions from the local supply authority. The design required a full upgrade path from 800W/ m² to 1400 W/m² without any significant changes to the existing electrical and mechanical network. This was accomplished by designing future requirements into the current design which will be seamlessly implemented without effecting current business operations. The development also includes an office administration block, comprising all the amenities required by a world-class GSM service provider.
