UPS system protects fire alarm system and VOIP infrastructure in Alexianer Hospital, Krefeld, Germany.

Application

Data and IT, Healthcare

After switching to a new alarm system (fire protection), that was built on a wireless and telecommunications infrastructure for IP telephony, it also had to be redesigned to protect against power outages. The bridge between power failure and standby diesel generators is especially considered one of the most critical single points of failure (SPOF) - that part of a technical system which would result in the failure of the entire system itself if this component part failed.

 

Therefore, INCAS GmbH, which belongs to the top 10 among the Niederrheinischen IT system houses (Niederrhein Manager 05/2012), selected the implementation of the proven reliability of AEG UPS systems.

 

The various UPS systems were there to protect the central core switches and the Cisco Call Manager VOIP switches, including some in the sub-distributors on the various hospital levels.
