Vertiv licenses patents for Switch’s Modular Data Center Technologies

Vertiv and Switch have completed a licensing agreement for Switch’s revolutionary hot and cold aisle containment technology and cooling systems. These licenses expand the industry-leading Vertiv portfolio of thermal management and integrated infrastructure solutions for large enterprise, micro colocation, and edge data centers.

The licenses cover Switch’s patented Exterior Wall Penetrating Multi-Mode HVAC units, known as the TSC®, and the hot and cold aisle containment technology recognized as the Chimney PodTM or Switch T-SCIF®. As part of the agreement, Vertiv has secured the first license to construct Switch’s Tier 5® Platinum modular data center solution called SwitchMOD®.

“We are excited to add innovative new technology options to help our customers ensure availability and optimize performance across today’s increasingly large and complex cloud and colocation facilities,” said Vertiv CEO Rob Johnson. “These environments require a broad spectrum of creative solutions, and these technologies from Switch add more tools to our toolbox.”

Switch hot and cold aisle containment technologies enable the industry’s highest cabinet power densities and best audited power efficiency scores. Rob Roy began inventing Switch’s technologies in the early 2000s and holds more than 600 issued and pending patent claims. Switch has obtained regular patent allowances from the United States Patent and Trademark office.

“This licensing agreement of Switch’s industry-leading patented designs presents a tremendous opportunity to expand the footprint of the highest-rated technology infrastructure,” said Switch CEO and Founder Rob Roy. “We are pleased to enter into this agreement with Vertiv, whose reputation as an innovative, global leader in designing, building and servicing data center critical infrastructure is unparalleled.”
