Historically, this organization relied on single phase power for their IT and networking equipment cabinets. But as time progressed, technology evolved along the lines of both speed and density. More network ports were put into the same amount of space, and network speeds went from megabits per second to hundreds of gigabytes per second. Single phase 208V power allowed for a maximum of only 5-6 kilowatts of load per cabinet. Equipment loads got commensurately larger. This led to the frequent tripping of circuit breakers within the labs.
