FirstNet requires 99.99% system availability. Power outages and backup power system failures are the biggest threat to system availability. Backup power systems must be monitored 24/7/365 to attain 99.99% system availability. Explore different power options such as fuel cells and sustainable network infrastructure off-grid (even in winter!). Reliability of network infrastructure power is a pride point in most systems, but that is until one has to power up: ‘off-grid.’ Can renewable energies, with the right battery strategy, be a game changer? Yes.
