Power Sources – Efficient Telecom Equipment Development

Application Notes

Overview Telecommunications equipment developers are faced with several challenges when selecting power sources for developing new telecommunications equipment for network installations employing high voltage power distribution. Low voltage DC power distributions buses of +24, -48, and, to a lesser extent, -60 volts DC are well established in telecommunications networks. In contrast datacom equipment is mostly AC powered. With networks rapidly evolving into 3 and 4G broadband service systems, there is growing demand for data services on the existing internet infrastructure, as well as more datacom equipment being incorporated into the telecommunications networks. Data centers and equipment consume phenomenal amounts of power. A typical data center may require on the order of a megawatt of power. As a result there is an alarming level of power consumption these networks burden (and projected to further burden) the electrical utilities with.
