Why You Need a UPS in Your Network Equipment

Apart from securing your computer network against breaches, it is advisable to ensure that the network hardware is plugged into a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) system.  A UPS not only helps you maintain network productivity during instances of a power failure but also prevents data loss. Here’s why you should invest in a UPS.

Provides Backup Power

During a power outage, UPS systems will provide backup power besides offering protection against power surges. This helps avert damage to network equipment. Similarly, you won’t need to worry about losing unsaved work.

UPS Systems are Affordable and Easy to Install

Generators are essential for some businesses. Nonetheless, the cost of acquiring, installing, and maintaining them is high. A small or medium-sized business may not have the financial capacity to purchase and maintain a reliable generator.

Similarly, the misuse or mishandling of generators can lead to breakdowns or even fatalities. UPS systems are relatively affordable and easy to install. Misusing a UPS unit can only result in the loss of the day’s data, but nothing extreme.

They Ensure Uninterrupted Internet Access

When you deploy a UPS system to your modems and Wi-Fi routers, you will maintain your Internet access at all times. Internet access is even more important during instances of disaster, for instance, when power surges damage your equipment.

UPS-supported routers and modems can keep you connected to the Internet for up to 90 minutes. This offers you ample time to back up your data before the power runs out altogether. This emergency power source helps you stay operational even during disasters.
