Remote Line Powering
Securing a remote DC load
Deploying a broadband network usually requires to install active equipment in remote sites such as street cabinets, ... And these active equipments will require powering of some sort.
One option is to use local powering, i.e. a set af batteries and rectifiers fed directly from the Grid. This requires to commission a local provider for bringing an AC line to each remote site, and maintaining a dispersed DC infrastructure. A rather expensive solution both in human and material assets.
Leveraging the existing infrastructure
A second option, developed by CE+T Power, is to feed the local active equipment remotely from the DC infrastructure present at the Central Office, through the existing buried copper pairs.
No need for power backup solutions in street cabinets anymore!
