Telecommunication companies strive to provide round-the-clock uninterrupted service. This industry includes long-distance providers, wireless services, broadband companies that offer bundled TV, internet and phone, and companies that provide regional services.
The downtime caused by a fire in a remote location or the main office interrupts service for thousands of customers at once. For business customers transactions halt and in the medical field the impact is critical and resuming service is time sensitive. This type of business halt frustrates residential customers and increases the odds of losing customers to the competition.
Vulnerable enclosed areas in telecommunications, cable television, and internet facilities include electrical cabinets, control rooms, substations, transfer stations, and even battery rack rooms.
Fire protection systems in cabinets and rooms are key components of a safety and fire prevention plan. By containing the fire event to the cabinet or room, the damage can be limited.
