A Power Menu for Rooftop Telecommunications Applications
As much as 30 percent of total network sites are located on rooftops. This presents a challenge to carriers and their partners to harden sites against grid power outages by selecting solutions that meet the desired amount of power and runtime while accounting for the structural limitations of the building/rooftop, relevant codes and regulations related to fuel storage , logistics and environmental considerations including noise, vibration and emissions. Three viable power solutions: internal combustion generators, batteries and fuel cells, are compared against these parameters providing a matrix from which carriers may choose the best option for each particular rooftop setting.   VIEW WHITE PAPER
