Re: Battery Maint in LEC equipment
Once upon a time, David Lesher <[email protected]> said: > Have any NANOG'ers [NANOGites? NANOGees?] run into this? Again, this > is LEC owned, LEC maintained, equipment....Do you provide generator > power for such in your space? We do provide generator power in our space to the telcos. BellSouth has a big (pre-existing) battery bank, but KMC didn't install batteries (there wasn't much point; if our UPS and generator fail, there's nothing for them to provide service to). In this area, I believe that BellSouth uses natural gas powered generators, as many of the remote cabinets (installed in the last 5-7 years or so anyway) have a gas meter next to them and a line running into a second cabinet (generator/power supply I suppose). -- Chris Adams <[email protected]> Systems and Network Administrator - HiWAAY Internet Services I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
