Network Critical Infrastructure
To stay competitive in today's rapidly changing business world, companies must update the way they view the value of their investment in Network-Critical Physical Infrastructure, also known as NCPI. In order to make adequate business decisions it's no longer enough to only consider the availability and upfront cost factors. Agility, or business flexibility, and low total cost of ownership have become equally important to companies that will succeed in a global, ever-changing marketplace.

It is the "backbone" of the business, as its elements provide the power, cooling, physical housing, security, fire protection, and cabling which allow the information technology to function & this consists of:
