Power Survivability Service provides a solution for departments located in buildings that already have an emergency generator who wish to maintain telephone and network connectivity during scheduled and unscheduled interruptions in power.
UB's telephones and Wi-Fi access points are powered through their network cable (Power-Over-Ethernet). Power Survivability Service places an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) in the appropriate Telecommunications room to ensure the designated networking equipment remains powered during scheduled and unscheduled power transfers between utility and generator power sources.
Contract arrangements have been made with an external vendor to install Uninterruptable Power Supplies within Telecommunication Rooms to provide power to network switches and network related devices. The UPS unit will be sized appropriately for power circuit capacity load.
The contract provides for a 5 year warranty on the UPS device and service. Costs for the UPS solution will be billed directly to the requesting department(s). Installation will be done under the supervision of NCS network engineers to ensure compliance with network standards.
