A Power Redundancy Solution doesn’t Have to be Expensive

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Without proper planning, the task of adding power redundancy and power fallback capabilities to an existing network equipment site can be both complicated and costly. In order to add a power redundancy solution to an existing network installation, network administrators and engineers will often resort to replacing older, single-power-inlet devices with brand new dual inlet devices. This can often run into tens of thousands of dollars in equipment costs, plus additional time spent reconfiguring other network devices for compatibility with new dual inlet devices. But adding power redundancy to an existing network application doesn’t have to be expensive and inconvenient; not if you use a transfer switch to provide power redundancy to existing single inlet devices.
