Lithium batteries are being deployed in more stationary UPS and backup power applications and displacing lead acid batteries. But why are Lithium batteries growing in 5G telecom and EDGE deployments now? Advances in battery electronics, cell chemistry and regulatory guidelines have evolved so Lithium batteries need less floor/rack space, offer higher energy efficiency, provide longer life and are more cost-effective than incumbent technologies. This webinar will outline best practices for utilizing Lithium batteries to power your 5G telecom and EDGE equipment. These best practices are based on pre- and post-installation analysis of data center operations and highlight the qualitative benefits and quantified returns after installation of Lithium batteries. Join Green Cubes to get the truth on the adoption of Lithium batteries in 5G telecom and EDGE applications.

Key takeaways from this webinar will include:

  • The benefits and drawbacks of Lithium batteries for backup power
  • Deciding when Lithium batteries are the best choice for backup power
  • How Lithium batteries are affected by the current regulatory guidelines for back-up power
  • What unique benefits network operators can expect with Lithium batteries
