For many organisations, telephone systems are a lifeline that is relied on every single day, so what happens when the power has gone? Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) allows you to keep going even when there’s an issue with the power. It maintains and protects systems during critical times, and can save you a lot of time and hassle.
You may think that your power supply is sturdy and reliable, but fluctuations, surges, dips, and cuts can be a common occurrence, and this will only increase as we head into the winter months. Bad winter weather frequently causes power loss, through things like flooding, lightening, and strong winds. Fallen trees are a given during the winter months, and they sometimes take down power lines on their way to the ground. So if you’ve been looking at UPS, now is the perfect time to arrange.
What is UPS?
UPS, put simply, provides you with backup power. UPS come in all sizes, from little black boxes that give you enough power to safely shut down your systems, to very large, megawatt models that can power a large organisation.
The supply system protects your devices from power interruptions, and also refine the quality of the power that your system is using. It also provides your organisation with power during short-term interruptions, or you can get a bigger UPS that includes a backup source for long-term outages.
There are some very obvious benefits to having UPS, and they can make a huge difference to your organisation.
Firstly, they provide continuity and consistency. If the power goes, you can stay online and keep talking to customers and running your organisation. Staff won’t be interrupted or have to waste time waiting around for the power to be put back on, and you won’t lose those clients who were trying to call at a time when your main power source was out. It keeps your telephony system on an even keel, as it detects glitches and surges and responds accordingly.
Secondly, it increases the safety and protection of your devices and equipment greatly. Surges, spikes, dips, and failures can cause damage to your phone systems. Any damage done can result in big bills and a large amount of down time, which is the worst possible thing for organisations which rely on their telephone system. UPS will be able to protect your devices from the perils of a power surge or spike, allowing you to carry on and keep your staff and equipment safe.
