The NOC has a correctly sized 40 KW battery backup UPS and 60 KW propane emergency generator to provide a reliable electrical power source to the core broadband server equipment.  We currently experience hundreds of brief ΒΌ second power outages and a dozen hour long plus power outages every year.  With emergency backup computer grade electrical power, we will continue to provide reliable carrier class broadband communications to the community, schools, hospitals and emergency first responders.  With reliable power, the NOC additionally serves as an emergency communications command post in the unfortunate event of a disaster or homeland defense issues.
