At ISE Expo in Denver last Thursday, Servato's very own Chris Mangum spoke with a room of people on how data empowers carriers to become more actionable, particularly technicians. Later that day Tech Talk panelist, Ken Paker of TDS, spoke about a similar topic that highlighted how internal processes and teams can be made more efficient. More intelligent decisions for network reliability are becoming ubiquitous as data accumulation has made the most niche problems now more efficient.[…]

In this three-part article series, Andrew Burger of Energy Central outlines the systematic risk that an increasingly unreliable energy grid poses to the telecom industry and the way Americans communicate, do business, and protect against crises. Andrew speaks with Servato CEO Chris Mangum on the subject:[…]
The recent influx of cold weather patterns caused all 50 states to experience some level of snowfall this past week. La Niña, the Polar Jet Stream, typically brings drier, warmer weather to the majority of the southern continental states. However, several rounds of cold fronts caused the blanketing that now leaves about a quarter of the United States with snow.[…]

Lead-acid batteries are the workhorse battery of standby power. Safe, reliable, and cheap, they dominate industries like telecom and utilities where backup batteries are essential in maintaining uninterrupted operations. Today, tens of millions of Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA) batteries are in use at millions of sites across the country.Managing these batteries is not easy for the companies that buy them. Most of the time, the sites where these DC power systems are deployed are unmanned and remote. These deployment sites include remote broadband locations, railroad switching stations, or some other type of site where there is a durable cabinet housing industry equipment and the DC power system. In these cases, batteries are subjected to the elements: oppressive heat during the summer, cold during the winter, dust and humidity, animals, and more. The robustness of VRLAs to withstand these factors make them such a great choice in these applications, but the environmental pressures will affect reliability and battery life.[…]
In just two weeks the ICT industry will gather in Orlando for the biggest show of the year, ISE EXPO. Each year, ISE brings in telecom professionals from all 50 states and many countries for educational sessions and an exhibit hall with hundreds of vendors.[…]

Adaptive Charging Extends Battery Life and Delivers other Benefits
Continuous charging as a method of maintaining standby batteries at a full state of charge has been standard for many years, but has serious negative consequences that can add significant cost to battery management budgets. Continuous float charging accelerates battery failure due to increased temperature, grid corrosion, plate degradation and dry-out.
