Powering is becoming an increasingly costly part of delivering communication services. With the advent of so much new technology, there are as many powering problems to accompany it. This paper deals with some of the problems associated with high power delivery and techniques to solve them. The bottom line is lower capital expenditure and lower operating costs. Anyone who has attempted to design a broadband cable system capable of delivering dial tone service has already discovered the enormous appetite for power that such a design requires. Short of deploying a power supply at every other corner with a minimum of six batteries per cabinet, a new solution must be found. Many of the designers are searching for new techniques and answers for this problem.
