Battery Maint in LEC equipment

  • From: David Lesher
  • Date: Sat Jun 04 12:07:16 2005

Background:

Verizontal is pushing their FIOS PON offering to residences. It will
put IP access, 'cable' TV and POTS phone on glass. They then cut down
your copper drop.

But midst the VoIP E911 dustup, the issue of backup power has
arisen. The FIOS box needs local power, and a small gel-cell
good for say 5 hours. The *subscriber* must buy and install new
ones as needed. Some pholks are dubious how well that will work...



Foreground:

There's one report that Verizontal, in ex-NuNuts territory, is also 
not maintaining batteries in their on-premises DS-3 -> n DS-1's mux's. 
Only if you get a full DS-3 will they bother.



Question:

Have any NANOG'ers [NANOGites? NANOGees?] run into this? Again, this
is LEC owned, LEC maintained, equipment....Do you provide generator
power for such in your space?
