Belk

ComDesign installed a complete cabling retrofit for the Belk Data Center, located in Charlotte, North Carolina along with the installation of a 300,000 sq. ft. Belk Fulfillment Center in Pineville, North Carolina and a 540,000 sq. ft. Belk Fulfillment Center in Jonesville, SC.

The Data Center supports four (4) distribution centers, three (3) division offices, the corporate offices, and three hundred (300) plus department stores. All re-wiring work was done during normal business hours and conversions were done on Sunday nights. There were no outages to any of the facilities. The retrofit design was a joint effort between ComDesign, HP, CommScope, and Anixter. In the existing Data Center, ComDesign installed 36 miles of Uniprise Category 6 cable.

In 2009 ComDesign began phase 1 of the Fulfillment Center project by identifying locations for network closets for full coverage of the facility. Determining the need for 4 IDF’s and an MDF. ComDesign installed fiber to each network closet as well as an additional redundant fiber backbone.

In 2011 phase 2 was underway. ComDesign relocated the original Disaster Recovery network closet and installed 4 new IDF’s; connceting these additional closets with fiber and reduncant fiber back to the original MDF. Finishing out the project with installing and patching the new network switches.

In 2011 ComDesign was tasked to identify additional locations for network closets for full coverage of the Jonesville Fulfillment Center. We tested and re-terminated existing fiber as well as installed new fiber and redundant fiber backbone to the new existing network closets.
