The Level(3) facilities are inconspicuous from the street. There are no big signs or other indication of what's going on inside.

Despite the low key appearance from the exterior, there are several electronic check points, requiring card keys, prior to entering the building. In addition, biometric devices are used to ensure you really belong there! This one reads your hand/fingerprints as a last check before granting access.

Serious Business!

Once inside, this place is all business! Even having passed the electronic authentication methods, all equipment is locked in cabinets or fenced areas to prevent unaothorized tampering.

The majority of the facility is filled with rows of 7' tall cabinet space. You can get an idea of the size of this place looking down this row. According to Level(3) documentation, this is a 64,000 square foot facility.

Power!

There's no shortage of power here. Look at the size of these cables!

The cables are run overhead in trays like these.
