Vertiv hybrid solutions that support renewable energy deployments in remote network edge and telecom sites
The Vertiv Advantage
With 5G infrastracture on the horizon, telecom operators are faced with new challenges in their critical infrastructure. Not only do they require solutions to support next-generation technologies and ultra-fast broadband connection, they also need a cost-efficient approach to enabling 5G infrastracture. Renewable energy is fast becoming a viable option, especially in remote locations where stable utility power remains a challenge.
Vertiv’s hybrid solutions for telecom sites are fully customizable, rugged and flexible to adapt to your different challenges. Our rectifiers and energy storage solutions support renewable energy sources such as solar and wind. Our hybrid solutions can be deployed virtually anywhere including network edge and remote telecom sites.
When to deploy hybrid solutions?
Whether to support 5G infrastracture deployment, reduce latency at the network edge or upgrade an existing telecom site, there are multiple advantages to deploying a hybrid solution. Depending on where you are situated, there are multiple renewable energy options for telecom available such as solar or wind or a combination of both.
Hybrid solutions are ideal in remote locations where there is no reliable utility power source or if maintenance and access to the site is difficult or costly. Hybrid solutions such as off grid solar and on grid solar help you increase operational savings through ease of maintenance and management and enhanced availability and efficiency.
Hybrid Solutions Applications
Solar power as main source during daytime, while batteries and genset as supplementary sources when grid is unavailable.
Solar as the primary energy source with long standby batteries and optional standby genset.
Solar power option to reduce genset usage together with high discharge batteries without connection to the grid.
Solar power and standby batteries as power source reduces dependency on both the grid and generators.
