Purcell Systems Inc. (Liberty Lake, WA; www.purcellsystems.com) is making a new product line of battery-powered cabinets for wireless applications. The company has launched the SiteSupport battery cabinets that offer protection of mission-critical wireless infrastructure equipment.

"People are rapidly trying to increase their time-to-revenue, and need new applications," says company president Pete Chase.

Purcell develops outdoor cabinetry solutions for the cable, radio and wireless industry. The cabinets are self-contained systems designed to protect vital equipment from the elements, with full heating, air conditioning, ventilation, alarm and battery back-up. The devices prevent wireless downtime. Purcell's solutions extend from low-power applications, such as customer premises equipment and small wireless radio sites, to larger hub sites, cellular/PCS tower sites and central office facilities.

During the recent economic downturn, the company focused on its core product line. But now, more than $1.5 billion is being spent on wireless networking gear in the U.S. alone. The SiteSupport line is designed to address what Chase perceives as a little-explored sector of the growing wireless market. This includes applications for environmental and power protection for wireless telecommunications infrastructure.

The new SiteSupport cabinets let wireless carriers use existing DC power with additional battery capacity, or integrate new DC power with battery support to achieve extended run-time goals.
