Alpha Technologies is introducing its next-generation outside plant broadband power supply, the Alpha XM3-HP CableUPS, to address the ever-increasing power demands of today's communications networks.
The Alpha XM3-HP power supply combines the reliability characteristics of Alpha's power products with the internal intelligence required by today's high-capacity, high-speed, interactive communications networks.
Technological advancements across the entire power technology platform are focused on improved efficiency, optimized performance and reduced operating costs.
"The XM3-HP's advanced design sets a new standard in power technology and focuses on reducing operating costs and optimizing the powering component of the network," said Alpha President and COO Drew Zogby. "Through advanced remote monitoring, network administrators can access detailed information, including remaining battery life, in-depth utility performance reporting, and critical and forward-looking backup runtime capacities – all from a central network operations center."
According to Alpha, the next-gen power platform saves operating costs in at least three specific areas: the reduction of utility power usage, the reduction of truck rolls, and the optimization of battery life and performance.
The XM3-HP also provides critical predictability data that allows users to significantly reduce both annual operating costs and lifetime capital expenditures.
