A Cost Effective Tool for Adding Power Redundancy to Single Inlet Devices

Monday, July 4th, 2011

The task of adding power redundancy and power fallback capabilities to existing network equipment racks can be an extremely expensive proposition. The cost of replacing existing, single-power-inlet network elements with brand new dual-power-inlet devices can often run into the tens of thousands of dollars … and that’s just a conservative estimate. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way; a power transfer switch provides an economical power redundancy solution that allows you to provide the convenience and reliability of power fallback and redundancy switching to existing network elements, without the cost of replacement.
