It’s impossible to do business without staying connected to suppliers, customers, colleagues in other offices and so on – but how do you keep telecoms and online access in a power cut?
When the lights go out, a telecoms UPS system gives you the power you need to make essential calls, to request emergency maintenance and repair work, or just to carry on with your daily business uninterrupted.
Telecoms and internet UPS systems can keep all of your voice and data connections active during a mains power outage, including:
- Voice and video telephone equipment.
- IP systems including VoIP and SIP trunking.
- Internet connectivity including modems, switches and routers.
- On-site LAN/WAN equipment, wireless routers and access points.
For companies that rely on cloud storage, server virtualisation and other always-on connected technologies for their core activities, telecoms UPS systems are a must to avoid business interruption due to even a momentary loss of mains power.
UPS for mobile batteries
Of course, much of the mobile computing equipment we use nowadays has its own battery supply – including mobile phones, tablets and laptops, among other handheld computing devices.
But that’s not to say you can rely on battery power to see you through a power cut. At any given time, there is no guarantee that employees’ devices will still have a full charge, and UPS batteries give you the option to plug in regardless of the device’s own battery charge and the availability of a mains supply.
Remember too that all of those handheld devices rely on mains-powered network equipment to maintain a high-speed internet connection or access to networked storage.
When that access is lost, you could be left trying to run your entire company on 4G mobile data signals, using only the applications and files that you have locally available on each device’s hard drive or onboard storage space.
How to add UPS for telecoms systems
We can help you to decide on the right level of UPS for the telecoms systems and networking equipment you use on a daily basis.
That might mean putting in place a high-capacity UPS battery backup that will keep everything running for a considerable length of time, ensuring no interruption at all to your regular business.
Alternatively, smaller UPS backup systems can keep core equipment running – so for example, you might keep your central wireless network on so that battery-powered mobile devices can still access the internet and any shared files until the mains power is restored.
