A regional mobile network operator (MNO) in the Great Plains region of the United States came to Asentria looking for an inexpensive and simple solution to help assist in keeping their network online during extreme weather conditions.
Asentria’s SiteBoss is an intelligent Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) device designed to improve the efficiency and resilience of telecom sites and networks. It is an advanced device that has the ability to monitor, control, and automate multiple variables at a base station.
As severe weather continues to increase across all regions around the world, telecom networks are prioritizing their network’s resiliency and improving their control and management of power.
Effective monitoring of various power-related sub-systems (AC meters, generators, DC rectifiers, batteries, fuel cells, solar arrays, or other newer hybrid power systems) can give a complete picture of power-related issues at a site. This allows for better troubleshooting and reduced downtime [...]
