Enterprise users of backup power are beginning to look past the cost issue and buying centralized monitoring systems for remote uninterrupted power supply (UPS). This system provides multiple-level displays of geographical areas and building plans among many other attractive benefits.
It also offers multi-user access with various levels of security, which is a particularly appealing feature since alarm notification for disturbances in operations is a crucial element of remote monitoring.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (powersupplies.frost.com), North American Remote Monitoring Market for UPS Systems, reveals that market revenues totaled $75.0 million in 2004 and expects to reach $263.7 million in 2011.

Providing security for remote and unmanned operations, especially for digital applications, is a vital advantage. Apart from guarding against unauthorized users, remote monitoring also offers control over the passage of information.
Using these remote monitoring systems, a network manager can track any information, which passes from a remote location to a centralized site, through the network. This will be possible even with the network spread all over the country.
“In 2004, the $75.0 million North American remote monitoring market for UPS grew at 10.3 percent over 2003,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Aishwarya Ramakrishnan. “This improvement has been heavily influenced by an increase in security system upgrades, provision of control over information passage to end users, and monitoring of operations.”
The remote monitoring market is likely to continue to grow and provide more control over networks that initially backed up only during power outages. Vendors taking advantage of the various benefits of remote monitoring will have an edge over their competitors.
Most IT and facility departments have already installed management devices for specific applications such as enterprise and building management systems.
For instance, enterprise management devices monitor networking equipment, servers, and storage while building management systems monitor building power, air, temperature, and security. In such cases, it would seem redundant to adopt remote monitoring for UPS.
Despite the numerous product and technology developments in the remote monitoring market for UPS, the lack of awareness about these monitoring systems hinders end users from upgrading their equipment and implementing remote monitoring.
“Vendors have to increase customer awareness, primarily about the benefits of backup power, which will in turn create interest in remote monitoring equipment,” notes Ramakrishnan.
Since the IT industry is in a transitional phase with increased service offerings and market reach, there will be greater demand for UPS to ensure steady power supply. End users’ need to ensure maximum uptime holds huge potential for the remote monitoring market.
