The rainy season is upon us again. During this time, it’s very important that we can always readily connect with our loved ones in case of emergencies. For this reason, Globe is rolling out fuel cell systems that can provide back-up power in cell sites. This makes sure that your texts will be sent and calls will connect to your loved ones when a natural calamity strikes.
If there’s anything super-typhoon Haiyan showed us, it’s that communication plays an important part in helping those affected by the massive devastation in central Visayas. We all need reliable cell sites to constantly communicate with friends and family members during times of calamity.
More importantly, these new fuel cell systems feature extended duration backup power capability to maintain communication between people and emergency services personnel. This is in line with Globe’s network resiliency and preparedness plan to make sure everyone has access to voice, SMS, and data during emergencies when lines of communication are most critical.
Fuel cell systems provide a cost-effective and reliable alternative to batteries and generators. With up to 100 hours of run time, this ensures delivery of our network services even during the most extreme weather events or when electric grids are not available such as power outages.
These power solutions for Globe cell sites is part of our continuous program to equip ourselves to respond and address incidents like natural calamities.
