CommScope's outdoor cabinet fuel cell solution can provide up to 16 hours of reliable, environmentally-friendly backup power to enterprise core business computing systems. This is enabled through an existing partnership with Hydrogenics Corporation, a worldwide leader in designing, manufacturing, building and installing industrial and commercial hydrogen systems around the world.
"Natural disasters, such as hurricanes, have shown us that traditional
backup power generators can be unreliable when put through the test of
time and exposure to the elements," said
CommScope's hydrogen fuel cell solution converts chemical energy directly into electrical energy without any combustion. The system provides highly efficient, reliable and uninterrupted backup power for commercial building systems without the need for costly regular maintenance. It does not emit any greenhouse gases and the only by-products are heat and a small amount of water.
"This is a smart fit for businesses, such as banks, large retailers and other commercial buildings needing something they can count on to keep their business systems operational, without interruption, anytime there is a loss in power," Brooks said. "Hydrogen fuel cell technology not only has a lower total cost of ownership, but provides an opportunity to meet sustainability goals through an alternative power solution that is clean, quiet and runs on an abundant resource. Hydrogen is safer than fossil fuels and I'm confident we will see more uses for it in the coming years."
The proton exchange membrane hydrogen fuel cells are housed inside an outdoor environmentally secure cabinet, about the size of a phone booth, with a smaller footprint than other solutions currently available on the market.
This alternative-energy solution already has been deployed in the
telecommunications industry. Last year, CableLabs®,
the non-profit research and development consortium for the cable
television industry, deployed the solution to provide 16 hours of
reliable, environmentally friendly backup power to its head-end and
cable modem termination system at its headquarters in
