Voice, video and data networks comprise of many devices, such as switches, routers, servers, and networks, all of which is vital to the running of a business. Most companies invest millions of dollars in their communications and networking systems in order to ensure seamless access and control of their networks and processing equipment. Networking has become a backbone for every business
Damaging surge energy can ruin any or every piece of equipment connected with this system. A power surge that the last one-millionth of a second can render a network inoperative. The annual cost of damage from such power related problems is estimated to run into billions of dollars. Regardless of the cost, this damage can rob you of the ability to serve your customers, and the toll of this is incalculable.
With a correctly coordinated and grounded surge protection designed and installed the system, this damage can be totally eliminated or reduced to a great extent.
How can surge damage an entire networking system of an organization?
When lightning hits within a mile of your facility several things can happen such as surge energy can enter through the phone line, cable line or any unprotected electric line that enters or leaves the facility. Even outdoor wireless access points and IP cameras are other ways surge energy can directly enter the networking system. And once this happens it's hard to predict where the energy will go and what it will damage on its way to the ground.
Lighnting no doubt is a major cause of damage to the networking and communication system within a facility, but it's not the only one. Other causes of the surge are:
It cost much less to avoid a disaster than to recover from one!
Surge protection devices come in all types and capacities; some of them are even patented by LEC. These are small devices, which are connected between each electrical conductor in a wireless networking system, to provide a short circuit to ground. Its sole purpose is to limit the rise in voltage when a communication or power line is struck by lightning.
