Westell Technologies Unveils an Intelligent Power Distribution Panel at OSP EXPO

AURORA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a leading provider of in-building wireless, intelligent site management, cell site optimization, and outside plant solutions, announced today that it will unveil an Intelligent Power Distribution (IPD) Panel at the OSP EXPO 2014. The OSP EXPO will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center in Maryland from September 30 to October 2, 2014.

Real time control of geographically dispersed network assets is critical for today’s communication networks. To provide greater control, Westell has introduced the IPD panel to enable remote monitoring and power cycling of connected equipment. The IPD offers real time remote access to voltage, current, power and energy data, offering greater insights into system performance in order to facilitate superior responsiveness for network support issues.

If issues exist or thresholds are exceeded, the IPD can automatically, or under operator control, take action to remotely power up/down or power cycle equipment. By doing so, the IPD provides significant operational cost savings due to fewer truck rolls, expedited trouble resolution, greater network uptime and reduced energy consumption. Turning off equipment when it is not needed can provide significant energy savings and support the green initiatives being undertaken by network operators throughout the world. The IPD builds upon years of experience that Westell has with carrier-class power distribution equipment used in some of the most mission critical portions of broadband carrier networks.

Visit the Westell booth #723 to learn more about the IPD and our solution and product offerings. Westell will also speak on “Intelligent Equipment Enclosures: Making the Right Choices” on Thursday, October 2 at 8am.
