Today’s networks extend beyond the confines of one building, which presents several
problems for network managers because the greater the reach of any network, the greater the vulnerability to power
fluctuations -- such as spikes, surges, brownouts and blackouts.
Protecting the network involves different plans, each based upon the design of the network. For example, in a peer-to-peer
environment where any PC could be a server, it is essential to have backup support on each workstation.
Minuteman's product line has the tools you need to protect your entire
system. This includes surge
suppressors for small non-critical components, standby EnSpire series
and line interactive Entrust, PRO-E, PRO-RT, and EnterprisePlus
series UPSs for small to medium sized phone systems, and full on-line Endeavor

The Threats Facing Information Systems
Once your IT and network systems have been installed and the service is turned on, the challenge for network operators is keeping the
system running with minimal downtime to costly lost productivity or information.
What makes continuous operation a challenge is the fact that IT and network applications, from an electrical point-of-view, are sitting ducks
for a number of reasons:
Excess current can enter through almost all items in the subsystem (such as power sources, peripherals, networks, and communications cables).
Excess current can destroy vital items in a subsystem (such as silicon items, circuit board traces, and magnetic media).
Network subsystems are usually assembled out of components from different manufacturers. As a result, many systems have
equipment that handle power and signal grounding in the different ways.
Communications cables are vulnerable from outside the building to breakage, crosses, lightning, etc., and those cables lead directly to you.
