In the event of Entergy power loss, each facility is powered by its own Caterpillar diesel generator. Very large fuel reserves insure operation for several days.
BGP4 Multi-Homed Backbone
Broadband IP utilizes a very sophisticated routing protocol (BGP4) that enables the most efficient use of the fastest routes of multiple Tier-I Internet backbones.
Environmental conditioning of temperature and the proper moisture level is accomplished by redundant Liebert System 3 and Challenger 3000 air conditioning and climate control units.
No Single Point of Failure
Broadband IP has taken the extra precaution of separating not only the source of bandwidth, but also the point of entry. Each of the main backbones are carried by way of separate Metropolitan Fiber Loops feeding the facility through different conduits.
Each facility houses its own massive Lucent Technologies battery array and inverters to provide more than 300 KW hours of 48 V DC and additional, independent Liebert/Pylon and redundant synchronous APC Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) provide 100 KW of continuous, filtered AC power.
