At a prestigious Northeastern engineering college, a vast interconnected, networked base of power solutions keeps the technology-centric school up and running as it continuously upgrades its enterprise-class access control and security solutions.
Like the campus, many businesses require constant up-time. This trend is set to accelerate with the increased reliance on mission-critical Business Intelligence (BI) driven by an increasing amount of Internet of Things (loT) devices being deployed. Research firm Gartner forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from 2015, and that number will reach 20.8 billion by 2020.
Consistent, ongoing connectivity will continue to gain importance as new IoT devices, systems, and services get connected to the network. To increase reliability and to ensure critical systems deliver desired outcomes, Convergint offers reliable power solutions by LifeSafety Power. LifeSafety Power delivers high-quality, managed power supplies for mission-critical life safety and security equipment. LifeSafety’s managed power supplies provide operators with critical control and service power solutions across the enterprise. All of which can be managed remotely. This presents the ability to predict system trouble, irregularities, or power loss, before an actual occurrence.
Managed power solutions deliver lower cost of ownership, and the ability to proactively assess power viability 24/7. Remote monitoring as a managed service also provides instant performance functionality. The ability to power cycle a device or connected solution on or off remotely, as well as other functions, represents a substantial operational and business continuity cost savings.
