Telecommunications companies house their "last mile" network equipment in remote unmanned sites composed of controlled environment vaults (CEVs) and cell site buildings.
With any amount of downtime representing massive losses in revenue, ensuring uninterrupted site availability and safety is crucial for achieving optimum uptime. This requires support systems and devices such as HVAC systems, backup power generators, batteries and environmental sensors that need to be actively monitored and maintained. Connecting them to an environmental controller that builds upon a standard set of sensors and relay outputs provides the best remote site management solution but presents a difficult automation challenge.
Automating Unmanned Telecom Sites
For reliable and total remote site automation, control systems need to be able to execute a wide range of operations across the site's support systems to maintain ideal operating conditions.
Flame and Gas Hazard Detection
CEVs are exposed various gas and fire hazards despite being closed controlled environments and pose serious threats to both equipment and personnel, requiring specialized sensors to detect and mitigate.
Sierra Monitor offers a comprehensive array of telecom remote site management products. These solutions are designed to maximize availability, reliability, environmental safety, and energy efficiency of the various structures. Our flame and gas systems are Nationally Recognized Testing Lab (NRTL) approved and ensure the safety and protection of high-value assets and personnel in telecom sites.
