How Cage Deployments are Powered

CoreSite cage deployments are connected to electrical power sources – the utility gride and/or back-up generators by power whips.  Power whips help distribute power evenly. CoreSite employs three-phase power, which makes it easier to balance loads and optimize the utilization of electrical capacity for increased power usage efficiency (PUE).  Learn More
