The Internet of Things
With an increase in telecom devices comes an increase in the need for service continuity. If service goes out, customers will seek out other service providers.
A loss of backup power during an outage can cause not only lost business, but also lost employee productivity and costly repairs. However, replacing backup batteries based on a specific calendar is inefficient. Many of the batteries may still have a lot of life left in them. This is money lost.
As more subscribers come online with the expansion of the Internet of Things, expectations for higher levels of service continuity increase and ensuring reliable power becomes a challenge.
General maintenance programs are periodic, leaving room for outage risk between checks. More extensive power distribution leads to an increased demand on employee time, which can cause system failure, service disruption, and costly repairs
