RE: East Coast outage? (remote power -- as in remote huts)
Although our main office here has generator power, what do all the intermediary unmanaged network sites typically have for DC power along the way ? One of my local fibre providers told me that the remote hut we are off of only will last until about 9:30pm tonight and then bye bye. Is that typical to have 6hrs battery ? I am sure its all over the map from provider to provider, but does anyone know what Bell Canada (my other local loop provider) typical aims for in terms of battery power for remote huts ?
