The S571 is particularly designed to be used in the latest cellular or broadband wireless Base Transceiver Stations (BTS) for two primary purposes. One is the ability of the S571 to not only act as a DC power distribution unit, but to act as an intelligent means of power-cycling devices attached to its (9) power outputs to provide reboot ability for equipment experiencing problems in remote locations. The other primary purpose of the S571 is providing connectivity to remote sites via its optional on-board wireless modem. This allows for connectivity to the remote BTS location should a primary connectivity method (like microwave backhaul) fail. Use of the wireless modem and DC reboot function together gives your Network Operation Center the ability to access a site that is otherwise inaccessible, diagnose the problem by enabling terminal or network access to all remote equipment, and correct the problem remotely via a reboot without the need for a costly "truck roll". The S571 is designed around a powerful Linux processor which enables the use of security protocols such as SSH, SFTP, HTTPS, and RADIUS. The S571 supports an on-board scripting language for use in customized applications such as autonomously sequencing the powering up or down of devices at a BTS location based on certain events.
