With remote monitoring and control of DC power conditions at a site, issues can often be resolved by simply power cycling DC power to troublesome network devices. This reduces the need to send a technician to a site if an issue occurs. This also allows an issue to be corrected in a timely manner which reduces operating costs and increases network uptime and quality of service for users of the communication system.
Business Outcome / Benefits
For SED Systems, the benefits to this approach are:
Ability to monitor DC conditions at a site, including battery voltage, load conditions, AC mains availability; and the ability to remotely power cycle connected devices
Reduced number of site visits for technicians reduces maintenance and operating costs
Increased uptime of system and enhanced quality of service to customers
“In the past, any time something would go wrong we’d have to send a service technician to the site to try correct the issue.”
– John Franz, Engineer, SED Systems
