PostHeaderIcon Diesel Powered Engines – Emergency Power Generators

Power plant outages due to storms, natural disasters or high power demands are common. As our world grows increasingly interconnected and our dependence on technology grows, power reliability becomes increasingly critical. Hospitals, data centers, water and sewage facilities, fueling stations, and communication and transportation systems require continuous power to protect public health and safety. Beyond these most critical applications, the power needs for food and medical refrigeration, building operations such as elevators and sprinklers as well as banking and business machines further highlight the significant economic costs that power outages can impose.
Because of its unique combination of power, energy-efficiency, reliability, and durability, diesel engines have been used for decades in a wide range of on-road and off-road vehicles ranging from trucks, cars and buses to construction, mining, power generation and agricultural equipment. While most often thought of for mobile applications, diesel engines are also commonly used as stationary power sources for hospitals, data centers, utilities and airports. In a majority of cases, these diesel-powered generators or “diesel gensets” are used to provide emergency or backup power in case of a power outage. Interruptions of electrical power, even of short duration, create situations that could imperil public health and safety. Blackouts also wreak havoc for businesses and create significant inconveniences for individuals. Emergency diesel-powered generators must be able to provide reliable, immediate and full-strength electric power when there is a failure of the primary power system.
Within 10 seconds of a blackout, stationary diesel generators are fully online and providing power. Diesel-powered emergency power generators provide the most reliable form of backup power due to fuel availability, power density, and durability. While used more frequently as sources of emergency rather than prime power, advances in clean diesel technology have enabled the introduction of prime power generators with extremely low emissions and opened new market opportunities for diesel-powered generation in the area of distributed generation, peak shaving, and in conjunction with alternative energy sources such as wind turbines.

PostHeaderIcon Alternate Energy Source For Electricity

Electricity helps the world go round, so in a way, the means of creating this electricity also helps the world go round. For the majority of the modern world this is made possible through the use of fossil fuels such as oil and coal. However, there are other sources. This alternative electricity includes such sources as solar panels, and wind mills. It would not only make this world of ours go round much better than before but would also do so in a much cheaper and healthier way.

It is essential if we find affordable and workable sources of energy before the world completely consumes the already limited supply of energy sources. While it is essential that we become less reliant or not reliant at all on fossil fuels, many forms of alternate energy have their disadvantages as well as their obvious advantages. It has to be said though, that the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages in many cases.

Solar energy is probably the most common form of alternate energy for everyday people and you can see solar lights ad other solar accessories in many gardens. The use of photovoltaic roof tiles are easily fitted onto your roof and collect the heat from the sun. This heat can either be used to heat water or can even be converted into electricity. The advantage for the consumer is that by including a grid tie system you can actually sell unused electricity back to the grid. Photovoltaic tiles take the place of ordinary roof tiles and can be perfectly blended to fit the look of the outside of your house. With solar energy you too can help the environment.

PostHeaderIcon Small Business VoIP PBX

Knowledge of VoIP has become so ubiquitous that many falsely believe it’s a simple, ubiquitous technology available to business environments of all sizes. The truth is VoIP integrated with PBX and SIP trunking services has a low penetration in small businesses, those with fewer than 25 seats.

The cost savings of moving to VoIP from existing phone systems is significant. Phone communications take place over Internet pipes, so users can get flat-rate plans with unlimited long-distance calling. For a small business on a tight budget, this has great appeal.

New technologies are bringing integrated VoIP and PBX systems with enterprise-class functions to the small business. And that’s opening new and interesting deployment and services opportunities for solution providers.

In addition, VoIP opens possibilities that weren’t available with traditional phone service. A company using a PBX system, for instance, is limited by hardware constraints. But the software in VoIP solutions makes it easier to add features and make improvements along the way.

When you consider the potential for cost savings and the ability to add useful features, you can see how small business VoIP PBX can address real customer needs, which ultimately is why the IT channel exists.

A few vendors have recognized that and have pushed the envelope to create business services and communications gateways that do a great deal more than just ring a phone. Vendors are looking to make VoIP a ubiquitous portion of IT services for the small office by offering a hybrid solution that rolls VoIP into a business appliance, which addresses a multitude of needs. It’s those additional capabilities that build the integration, support and training opportunities for solution providers addressing the market, which is a far cry from the install and forget approach normally associated with VoIP.

Businesses seeking cost reductions by running voice and data traffic over one network need to carefully weigh the growing number of hosted or managed VoIP service offerings. The good news is that an increasing number of providers are now taking business concerns into account.

For channel companies providing managed services to customers, VoIP lends itself perfectly to the model. A managed services provider that has taken on the responsibility for monitoring and managing its clients’ networks can get more revenue by adding voice technology.

Of course, channel companies that lack voice expertise shouldn’t promise their customers something they can’t deliver, unless they partner with a solution provider with a VoIP practice.

Both from a technology and business perspective, solution providers can make a compelling case to their clients about VoIP. And now that it appears customers finally are getting serious about the technology, it’s time to make that case.
