Surge Protection

  • From: Fisher, Shawn

Have anyone experienced hardware failure related to electrical spikes coming into your datacenters or equipment locations via the telco facilities?  I am referring specifically to copper facilities for DS1's, etc.  I know that the telco must maintain good grounding, but sometimes when you get hit with a few Gigavolts worth of electrical energy not much will help you.  Whatever the case, has anyone had any experience good or otherwise with surge protection for their Telcom circuits?  I am looking at this unit below as a possible solution.
