Any major player in any telecom market that doesn't have at _least_
4hours of battery plant is not worth its salt.
-48VDC setups that are COMMON among carriers should be an absolute
necessity for any large ISP/NSP as well.
BBN not sizing their generator right was another huge mistake. You
have to wonder who is asleep at the switch over there.
