Power Management

All networks require power which can come from multiple sources (battery, generator, hybrid power alternatives, etc.). Power failures or disturbances, whether it is from site equipment, infrastructure issues, malicious intent, contractor error, or adverse weather conditions, usually cause network downtime, lost revenue, safety issues, and potentially customer turnover. It is critical to understand the primary and backup power sources and energy consumption at a site from anywhere at any time.

The power management solution from Westell provides the applications needed to help service providers and tower operators monitor and control multiple power sources at remote sites. The applications include the following:



  • Allows the proactive management of a site's power systems
  • Provides a complete view of remote power systems
  • Enables optimization of energy consumption
  • Provides historical reporting and trending
