Do Not Let Environmental Compliance Be Your Achilles’ Heel
Telecom networks invest heavily in the reliability of their networks and data centers, and optimize heavily on their service fleets. Very sophisticated hardware and software equipment guarantees the quality and reliability of service to attain the famous 5x9’s, or 99.999% uptime. That translates into an equivalent of 5 minutes of unwanted downtime per year.
Weather patterns notwithstanding, switching exchanges and data centers require back-up power generators with fuel supplies for a minimum of 72 hours. As fuel tank quantity varies from site to site depending on geography and propensity for power outages, telecom companies find themselves in the business of managing fuel storage facilities.
In addition, telecom operators that offer “last-mile” products to consumers and businesses, possess an entire fleet and workforce that makes house calls or performs maintenance on neighborhood exchanges. With thousands of vehicles on the road daily, the level of fuel consumption by their fleet leads them to managing their own fuel supply in addition to enabling drivers to purchase fuel from contracted suppliers. Environmental compliance and fuel operations become paramount to operate and succeed.
Turn environmental compliance into a competitive advantage: With 99.999% uptime requirements, telecom operators have very little room for errors. By turning to automating environmental compliance for fuel storage facilities, you eliminate risks of disruption due to fuel supply when unforeseen conditions hit (i.e., weather, etc.) by monitoring fuel levels, achieving safety, and meeting regulations.
Optimize fuel expenditures: Gain an accurate assessment on fuel consumption and ensure the availability of supply based on real needs.
Scale your business with a nimble EH&S: Telecom operators often find themselves acquiring or merging with other players, and in some cases trading or taking over different network assets. By upgrading environmental compliance and operations to modern SaaS solutions, you can achieve agility and speed by eliminating EH&S requirements from being in the critical path.
