Network Termination Equipment (NTE) that is supplied by a single DC source can be protected simply and quickly using an iPower. In many applications, where laptops and tablet devices are used there is little need to provide for continuity of power as those devices have a battery built in. However, what about the incoming modem or wireless router? If power is lost to these devices, access to the internet is also lost.
There is also an OFCOM requirement that states that the users must be able to make and receive phone calls for up to an hour following a power outage. Traditionally, power for this was derived from the telephone exchange however this can not be done in a Fibre To The Home environment. A local battery back solution is required.
iPowers provide this simple back up battery capability. They are suitable for many models of router, modem and GPON ONTs.
