About the Company

This communications provider is a leader in broadband satellite technology and services, serving more than one million customers in North and South America.

Background

A leading provider of satellite-based communications systems needed a mobile disaster recovery unit to support its terrestrial network in the event of a fixed facility failure. Never knowing when and where a disaster might occur, this company required that the mobile backup unit be easy to transport and maintain, and designed to operate in extreme environments.

Specializing in critical technologies that always work, Vertiv designed a custom trailer-mounted SmartMod™ solution with an internal sliding rail system for easy access to keep their backup system always ready. The trailer solution offers a quick-connect system for power and signal, as well as DX-based condensers mounted on the trailer. It delivered a backup infrastructure with a constant “ready for service” state that exceeded the communication company’s needs.

Our SmartMod is a modular, customized data center enclosure. It is a fully integrated, self-contained, rapidly deployable system that’s adaptable, flexible, and efficient. The compact nature of the SmartMod allows for easy transportation without compromising functionality or long-term value.
