Hybrid Energy Deployment: What to consider when enabling alternative energy sources at the cell site
The cost of and demand for energy is on the rise, but stable utility power is not always available, especially in remote and underdeveloped parts of the world. Despite these challenges, demand for wireless solutions around the world is increasing, prompting service providers to seek and wisely use multiple energy sources. Hybrid energy technologies are emerging as an answer, but there are many options available with a host of technical complexities to consider.
   
Case Studies
Sarasota County, Florida, USA
Sarasota County IT professionals realized they could cut costs and trim the operating budget by consolidating existing data center spaces into a new facility and shrinking the footprint. The new facility needed to deliver scalable capacity and efficient operation throughout the lifecycle of the data center, while assuring continuous operation of government functions.
DataCenter.BZ, Ohio, USA
In an effort to keep up with rapid growth in demand for its premium data center services, the company expanded its 66,000-sq.-ft. headquarters with the addition of a second carrier-neutral data center in 2011. When turning up more than 22,000 square feet of additional raised floor space to support its high-density IT and telecom operations, DataCenter.BZ relied upon Emerson Network Power to optimize its unique data center infrastructure for availability, efficiency and capacity.
Cyber Development Group International (CDGI), Illinois, USA
To ensure the new facility would be able to meet the stringent availability requirements dictated by their robust service level agreements (SLAs), CDGI utilized solutions from Emerson Network Power’s Liebert business designed to facilitate efficient, high-availability performance by adhering to field-tested and proven infrastructure design strategies.
