Why do data centers and telecom facilities need branch circuit monitoring?

Posted by Stephanie Labrecque on Jul 29, 2016 2:30:00 PM

Today, companies’ integrity depends on their ability to provide services to their customers. If critical equipment failures occur, due to a lack of load management monitoring, services will be interrupted and customers will be unsatisfied, which might result in revenue lost. Therefore, waiting for a component to break is not a good option.

New SMX-48BI Module: Dry-Contact Alarm Expansion for RTU Replacement

Posted by Stephanie Labrecque on Jun 15, 2016 11:00:00 AM

  Many wireline, CATV, and private telecom network operators have legacy alarm systems in place that are supported by obsolete management platforms, which work with proprietary protocols. They are looking to refresh the technology and get better remote visibility. They also want to improve the performance of the systems in place. Therefore, they need to replace out-dated technology at the lowest possible cost.

A few years ago, we have been approached by a company that had a specific objective: finding a solution that was better than retrofitting their old, costly, and obsolete Remote Telemetry Units (RTUs). The engineers wanted a simple solution that could combine all required features and functionalities with an easy deployment and fast learning curve.

Application note: How to Make Sure your Generator is Ready to Start

Posted by Stephanie Labrecque on Apr 12, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Today, telecom networks are as important as the public safety infrastructure. Cell phones are now the only mean of communication for many people. In emergency situations, everybody relies on his cell phone to know what is the current situation, to call family and friends, and to report accidents. Therefore, the access to a network is critical. The 911 services must be in function 24/7. This is especially true during weather-related events, where people and businesses totally rely on telecom networks to survive. Power outages on telecom networks could then have massive impacts on public safety.

White Paper: From legacy RTU to state of the art RMU

Posted by Stephanie Labrecque on Feb 8, 2016 11:30:00 AM

RTU replacement is now a reality for the telecommunications industry, primarily ILEC & CLEC wireline telecom companies. For the majority, RTU deployment took place in the 70s and 80s, were designed and developed in-house, and were taken over by people who are now retired.

How NERC CIP V5 impacts utilities' cybersecurity strategy

Posted by Stephanie Labrecque on Jan 20, 2016 10:30:00 AM

The CIP V5 Standards will become enforceable on April 1, 2016 (for High and Medium Impact Bulk Electric System (“BES”) Cyber Systems), and on April 1, 2017 (to Low Impact BES Cyber Systems).

These standards become applicable to provide power utilities with specific cybersecurity requirements to ensure the reliability of the systems that we all depend upon.

This blog post aims at helping you better understand this new regulation by defining its key elements: What, Where, Who, When, Why and How.
