OneNeck Receives Patent for Roaming Robotic Sensor

OneNeck IT Solutions announced a U.S. Patent for a "Temperature-Humidity Monitoring Assembly for Closed Server Cabinet".  Attaching on the inside of a data center cabinet door the patented sensor is fully controlled from outside of the cabinet and a motor and belt-driven rail assmbly unit incrementally raises the sensor until it reaches the top of the cabinet.  After the process is completed a color coded heat-map is generated for the scanned cabinet.

“With pinpoint accuracy, the heat-map reveals any and all hot spots,” said Koch. “Equipped with this information, our facilities technicians can quickly and efficiently make the necessary adjustments to improve overall air flow. Bottom-line, this unique monitoring device can aid our clients in managing their internal rack, cable placement and airflows, thus preventing overheating, early burn-out or, even worse, downtime.”

With input and assistance from parent company Telephone and Data Systems, OneNeck was provided the resources to pursue its first patent, which was issued on December 12, 2017.

OneNeck also announced that it was named to the CRN 2018 Managed Service Provide (MSP) 500 Elite 150 list. The Elite 150 list recognizes large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services.

OneNeck operates top-tier data centers around the U.S. and provides a range of hybrid IT, colocation, enterprise application management, managed and cloud services.
