Solar

Lighting up faster communications

Solar energy is an inexhaustible fuel source that is pollution free and in many installations silent. On an hourly basis the sun radiates more than enough energy to the surface of the Earth to satisfy global energy needs for an entire year. Today, solar energy technology produces less than one tenth of one percent of global energy demand. But solar energy use has surged at about 20 percent a year over the past 15 years, due to gains in efficiency, improvements in technologies, and falling prices.

One source of solar electricity is photovoltaic cells, or solar panels. Photovoltaics are built into spacecraft, rooftop panels, and handheld calculators. On a commercial scale, the energy of the sun is concentrated as heat and transferred to a generation plant in the form of boiling water, hot oil, or dissolved salts. The heat in the transfer medium then boils water to drive a steam turbine that generates electricity in much the same fashion as coal and nuclear power plants.

Commercial solar farms requires many acres in hot, arid locations with minimal cloud cover. The ideal solar site is, therefore, away from the population centers where the electricity would be used. In addition to building the generation plant, transmission lines must also be constructed to deliver power from the site. These requirements create logistical and communications challenges during the construction and operation of solar power sites. To meet their communication needs, commercial solar plants can benefit greatly from bandwidth optimization techniques which allows them to maximize the productivity of challenged Internet communications links.

Site communications

Commercial solar projects start with barren land. Everything must be constructed: generation plant, transmission lines, often even housing for crews. If the site is fortunate enough to have cellular coverage, demand will exceed capacity. Given the extreme capital cost to bring in fiber, locations typically rely on extreme connections such as fixed wireless, microwave or satellite for Internet, voice, and video communications. All of these wireless technologies have challenges not found with fiber or high speed cable. Bandwidth optimization from Acceleration Systems makes wireless services perform faster while they support more users.

Compatible with all technologies

Our bandwidth optimization solution is compatible with all technologies.

Installing bandwidth optimization

With all of the construction and operations challenges of a solar power plant in a remote area, the project does not need an expensive, complex, and time consuming broadband acceleration installation. We ship the  Remote Business Accelerator pre-configured to the network specification of the site. Installation, therefore, quick and simple. No complicated manuals. No special knowledge required. It is so easy and affordable you’ll ask yourself why you haven’t installed our service sooner. We’re so confident, we’ll give you a free 14 day on-site trial so you can see for yourself.

Acceleration Systems’ bandwidth optimization makes any Internet connection perform better. To learn more about how you can optimize your service or to arrange a free trial, contact an acceleration specialist at 216.468.5200.
