The Power Transfer Switch – Avoid Waste While Adding Power Fallback Capabilities

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

In tight economic times, it makes sense to do one’s best to always get the most benefit out of things that you’ve already paid for. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about a tube of toothpaste or single power-inlet network equipment; a wise budget manager will always try to squeeze every last bit of usable resources out of anything that they paid good money for. But while squeezing every usable drop of toothpaste out of the tube might be relatively easy, it’s not nearly as easy to to get additional use out of single-power-inlet network equipment if you need to implement a power redundancy solution … or is it?

The Automatic Transfer Switch – A More Economical Way to Minimize Network Downtime

Monday, November 7th, 2011

Over the last several years, as the internet has grown more omnipresent and become more of an integral part of every day life, the need to ensure that network services are always available when needed has also grown. As a result, network administrators are continually searching for ways to minimize downtime for important network devices, improve reliability and guarantee constant access to vital network functions.

A Power Transfer Switch Saves Time and Money for Power Redundacy Applications

Monday, October 24th, 2011

In a modern business environment, most office workers and managers depend on the company network in order to get their jobs done. In fact, when the network is down, often there’s not a lot that we can actually accomplish without it. That’s why most network managers are continually pressed to work to minimize network downtime and ensure that vital network capabilities are always available when needed. There are many things that can be done to improve network up-time, but one of the first stems that many network engineers take, is to implement power redundancy strategy that relies on the power fallback capabilities provided by a power transfer switch.

Power Redundancy without the Expense of Replacing Single Power Inlet Network Devices

Friday, October 7th, 2011

In today’s technology driven world, computer networks essentially serve as the nervous system of large businesses and organizations. Users depend on the network to be available when they need it, and a widespread network crash can often bring an entire organization to its knees while users wait for valuable services and capabilities to be restored. With this in mind, the importance of a reliable power fallback or power redundancy solution is easy to understand; when network administrators eliminate network service interruptions caused by power outages, they have essentially eliminated one of the most common factors that can disrupt network communication and hamper the work flow of the business or organization that relies on a particular network.

An Automatic Transfer Switch can Solve Your Power Fallback Woes

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

The task of adding power redundancy and fallback capabilities to an existing network equipment site can be both expensive and frustrating; especially if you’re dealing with a rack full of single power inlet devices. In cases like this, you’re basically left with three choices: (1) Shell out the money to replace all of those single power inlet devices with brand new dual power inlet devices, (2) Forget about implementing your power fallback solution … even though you know that will leave your network open to downtime caused by power supply failures, or (3) Install an economical automatic transfer switch that allows you to keep using your single power inlet devices, while still providing an effective power redundancy and fallback solution.

The Power Transfer Switch – An Easy, Economical Way to Implement Power Fallback Capabilities

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Often, network administrators are left with two choices when adding power redundancy and power fallback capabilities to an existing network equipment application; the expensive way and the easy way. The expensive way requires replacing every single existing single-power-inlet network device in the rack with a new dual-power-inlet device, and the easy way only requires the installation of an inexpensive, easy-to-operate power transfer switch in order to provide power fallback and redundancy capabilities to existing single-power-inlet devices.

The Transfer Switch – Effective Power Redundancy without all the Costs and Hassles

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

When power to a critical network device suddenly fails or becomes unstable, the resulting network outage can often create a wave of pain that’s quickly felt throughout your entire organization. Network communication is a vital part of any modern business, and most businesses can’t afford to have a relatively minor inconvenience, such as a power failure, interfere with the ability of their employees and customers to access important network resources and communication capabilities. This is exactly why so many businesses are updating their network infrastructure to include power fallback and power redundancy capabilities.

Add Power Fallback and Redundancy without Replacing Single Power Inlet Devices

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Given the importance of network communication in the modern business world, there’s a growing trend in network administration to add power fallback/redundancy capabilities in more and more network applications. The benefits of power fallback and redundancy are obvious; network up-time is improved because even if your primary power supply fails, network equipment can still fallback to a secondary power supply without disrupting user access. But in spite of the obvious benefits of power fallback and redundancy, many network administrators decide to postpone the implementation of power fallback strategies simply because their equipment racks include existing single-power-inlet devices that would need to be replaced with dual input devices in order to provide effective power fallback.

A Power Fallback Solution that Doesn’t Require Replacing Single Power Inlet Devices

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Power fallback and power supply redundancy are quickly becoming a more commonplace element in large network applications. The reason for the increasing popularity of power fallback strategies is simple; in a network-based economy, it’s absolutely vital that network elements are always up and running when they’re needed. If your network already includes only dual power inlet devices, then implementing a power fallback strategy is simple. But if your network includes existing single inlet devices, then the cost of replacing those single inlet devices is sometimes enough to convince network engineers to postpone the implementation of power fallback and redundancy strategies until those older single inlet devices wear out and need to be replaced; a very risky gamble, especially in cases where web access is an indispensable aspect of business communication.

An Economical Power Redundancy Solution for Single Inlet Network Devices

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Power redundancy is becoming an increasingly important element in many network applications. The reason for this is simple; an intelligently deployed power redundancy solution with automatic power fallback capabilities helps to minimize network downtime and ensure that critical network elements are always available when needed. An effective power redundancy solution helps to reduce the risk of network outages by providing a means to automatically switch over to a back-up power supply in the event that the primary power supply fails, or becomes unstable.
