Three Critical Uses of Data for Off-Grid Telecom Power

The ECOreport publishes an industry Op-ED, Three Critical Uses of Data for Off-Grid Telecom Power

By Thomas Rahkonen,ict Chief Technology Officer & Vice President eCentre, Flexenclosure

Consumers in off-grid areas are rapidly increasing their use of mobile Internet services. At the same time they not only expect service to become more reliable, but they also want network coverage to expand and prices for mobile data plans to decrease too. This is a big ask for mobile operators struggling to achieve base station profitability when they have no access to a reliable power grid. So what’s the solution?

Five Questions You Should Ask About PUE

PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) is a metric for measuring the energy efficiency of a data centre. Five Questions You Should Ask About PUE

By Srikanth Murugan, Global Director Sales Engineering, Flexenclosure

Screen-shot-2014-03-18-at-3.43.47-PMDeveloped by The Green Grid, PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) is a very useful metric for measuring the energy efficiency of a data centre. PUE is simply calculated by dividing the overall power entering the facility by the power consumed by the IT load within it – the target being to get as close as possible to a PUE of 1.0, as this would mean the data centre is 100 per cent efficient.
