Anti Theft System for Batteries at Telecom Sites

Mario Honrubia

Remote telecom sites must ensure service is available to customers when grid power is lost. Service availability during the loss of main power is currently met by the use of 12V lead batteries, that are attractive to criminals because of reselling value and lead recovery. Our anti theft system effectively avoids the theft with an implementation cost less than €500 per site, allowing for massive deployment with short ROI. The solution can be applied to any situation in which valuable equipment is kept in a confined space.
