Whilst working with the City of South Perth, Lightspeed Communications highlighted the risk that the City had at many sites, which had either substandard UPS installation or those without the capacity to keep essential services with any significant up time.

Lightspeed Communications conducted a site wide audit and worked with the City to determine UPS and battery pack requirements to meet the required run time needed for each location.

Each sites’ ‘equipment load’ was calculated and the correct size UPS was proposed.

A roll out to upgrade all significant locations, with the focus being to have zero downtime to the City’s staff and patrons, was planned.

Lightspeed Communications are happy to say this goal was achieved.
