RALEIGH, NC: Event WiFi services provider, TOURtech, has announced POWERpinger™. It’s the latest addition to TOURtech’s proprietary InSite Dashboard Network Management System and extends InSite’s proactive monitoring capabilites to electrical power. POWERpinger™ is an IP addressable, in-line device that signals an alarm if the incoming electrical power is disrupted.
Rapid identification and resolution of root cause of failures are critical in supporting modern Music Festivals where hundreds of thousands of dollars in commerce are transacted over TOURtech’s temporary infrastructure. When coupled with a basic Uniterruptable Power Supply (UPS), POWERpinger™ eliminates downtime by notifying TOURtech’s technicians of a power loss while still on battery power.
“Our connection points can be miles apart with thousands of people between them. Sending an IT technician out when a generator is offline wastes time” said Allen Cook, Founder and CEO of TOURtech. “POWERpinger™ allows us to know if the issue is network or power related and deploy the appropriate resources faster. Downtime equals lost revenue for our clients. Anything we can do to mitigate or eliminate these issues provides tremendous value.”
POWERpinger™ is now a standard offering across all TOURtech deployments.
