U.S. F.C.C. demands telecom backups

Written by

Based on natural disaster fears


The U.S. Federal Communications Commission
(F.C.C.) is requiring telecom and wireless companies to provide back-up power for mobile sites following the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in the southeast.

The move, which is likely to increase demand for generators, batteries and other power protection equipment, could also cause problems in some areas where space forbids installation of extra gear.

There are more than 210,000 mobile sites and about 20,000 telecom central offices in the U.S. The F.C.C. is now demanding that central offices should be able to operate for 24 hours without grid power, while eight hours of backup power is required for cell sites, remote switches and remote terminals.

Carriers have six months to file a plan outlining how they will comply with the new rules.
