As network speeds increase, and their elements move ever closer to end users, the need for good, reliable and steady power has never been greater. With the changing architectures of networks – copper, fiber, wireless, small cells, etc. it is equally important that power solutions be scalable and intelligent.
It is important, therefore, that modern power solutions provide usable data that not only tracks their own health, but also can collect and transmit information that allows an operations team to make better informed decisions on how to best manage the entire network. Voltage, amperage and temperature monitoring, for example, can provide actionable insight in the following ways:
Each of these areas, and more, may be improved through the effective use of power monitoring.
