Schneider Electric to provide UPS for Swisscom's All-IP switch

Posted by Schneider Electric on December 9th, 2017

The switch to All-IP telephony in Swisscom's network planned for 2018 will require adjustments for the emergency calls system. The operator relies for this on the uninterruptible power supply (UPS) from Schneider Electric, developed by the Schneider-Electric subsidiary APC.

The emergency power supply APC Back-UPS Connect is installed between the network and the router. In case of a power cut, it enables the operation of IP telephony for three hours. It can be used in applications such as elevators, too, for example.

The device is available at Swisscom and Also Schweiz. Also is currently the only distributor. The UPS costs CHF 89.

Since the beginning of the year, Swisscom has been working on a VoIP system for emergency calls from companies that could locate calls clearly and securely. Swisscom strives to implement the technology as a European standard.
