Commercial Power Outage Protection: 81% of all communications outages are power-related.
In Los Angeles we often hear about the toll summer can take on our power grid. Rolling blackouts is a term we’ve all come to appreciate and fear (Just check out this CBS Local Page dedicated solely to tracking and monitoring power outages throughout Los Angeles County).
Whether it is a thunder storm, a drain on the power supply because of a heat wave, or human error; every infrastructure system should protected by an Uninterruptible Power Supply, or UPS. A UPS protects your IT Systems against power spikes, (e.g. lightning), brown outs or sags, and temporary power outages. Stable electrical power extends the life of your system and keeps your network power grid worry free.
The cost of the Uninterruptible Power Supply, or UPS is far less than the cost of replacing software or hardware or retrieving data damaged by a power surge or outage. The size of the battery will determine the amount of time you can be without power. UPS batteries can last from 20 to 80 months but the general rule is 36 months. Whether you don’t have a UPS, or need a UPS check-up, or you have unplugged your UPS because it was making an annoying beep, INC Tech can make sure that your system is protected in general and for the summer heat and lightning season, in particular.
