Application Notes The following are Westell’s applications notes available for review. Over the next several months we will be expanding this section. Check out our application and solutions briefs for related information. Emergency Management and Disaster PreparednessNatural and man-made disasters can occur at any time. Service providers such as telecommunication providers and utility and transportation companies must be able to manage their networks when an emergency arises. Having an emergency management solution is critical for improving communication, access, and availability to power and transportation. Protecting Electronic Equipment in Cold ClimatesWhen critical electronic equipment must be housed in an outdoor enclosure, consideration must be given to the protection of that equipment from extreme temperature fluctuations. However, in cold climates, there is sometimes more caution taken than is necessary. If the equipment in the outdoor enclosure is temperature hardened, it can often be protected without the use of additional heating elements.
