Telecom & Data Centers

It goes without saying that Emergency Communication Operators play one of the most vital roles in the Telecom Industry. When disaster strikes we call 911, our family members and loved ones to make sure they are ok, and we turn on our laptops, computers, televisions and other electronic devices to get information on the latest breaking news. Although these systems are extremely capacious and reliable, they are not entirely protected when it comes to a potential lightning damage.

Downtime caused by transient currents and lightning faults can lead to costly damage or destruction of facilities. To ensure that downtime does not occur, it is important for the Telecommunication and Data Center Facility’s to protect their valuable and sensitive equipment. Proper grounding is key in eliminating downtime, but is often disregarded. True transient current and lightning protection starts from the ground up. Investing in quality grounding, lightning protection, surge suppression, and lightning warning technology will ensure that external surges and transient currents do not damage modern communications systems.
