Hurricane Isaac is the first classified hurricane of the 2012 storm season and has already made landfall in New Orleans, LA., early this week. Isaac brought 75 mph sustained winds and a torrential downpour resulting in severe flooding and widespread power outages.
Today’s sophisticated communication networks are especially susceptible to the negative impacts of extreme conditions, such as a natural disaster. It is critical for cable operators to ensure their power network is as best prepared as possible in the event of a power outage.
“Alpha has established a reputation for delivering tough, reliable power products and services for the cable broadband industry”, said John Hewitt, Vice President of NA Cable. “Our emergency preparedness services and disaster response teams are a huge asset to customers in disaster-prone regions.”

“Our time-tested equipment and service personnel are always on call for disaster relief, but even more so during these trying storm seasons,” added Hewitt. “Our clients should know that Alpha provides immediate support in any scenario, whether you’re preparing for or recovering from a destructive natural disaster.”
