To accomplish the delivery of these diverse subjects within a single volume, BICSI 002 integrated the key concepts and requirements from other documents and standards, from ISO, IEC, TIA, ASHRAE, NFPA and others, while providing reference to specific documents where more considerations or information is available. This feature, unique to BICSI 002, provides a comprehensive document, which is applicable world-wide, with the risk of differences between documents minimized.
Data center owners and operators; telecommunications and information technology (IT) consultants, project managers, and installers; professionals within facilities and physical security management; and A&E and construction firms involved with data centers will find benefit in purchasing BICSI 002.
As data centers continue to evolve, so too will this standard. Already in discussion are the expanding of facility availability and international information, and the addition of "green" technology and data center efficiency beyond PUE/DCiE.
