Thermal Edge Publishes Guide for Telecom Operators

Leading Manufacturer of Temperature Control Units Provides Advice on Outdoor Equipment Enclosure Cooling

IRVING, TX--(Marketwired - March 03, 2016) - Thermal Edge, Inc., a leading manufacturer of temperature control units for electrical enclosures, announced today that it is publishing a guide to help telecommunications operators challenged by the cooling requirements of their outdoor equipment enclosures. The e-book, A Comprehensive Guide to Thermal Management of Telecom Enclosures, is available for free download at

The rapid growth of wireless networks used for communication and data has resulted in an increase in the number of outdoor enclosures that are required to ensure dependable operation. The unreliability of mains power to these cabinets has resulted in a move toward DC-powered enclosure cooling solutions that are driven by standby batteries. Furthermore, the heat load produced by digital equipment in these outside plant (OSP) enclosures has grown exponentially over the last decade. Thermal Edge's new e-book details these challenges and offers advice to telecom operators looking to solve their cooling requirements. Among the guide's features:

  • Three key telecom OSP cabinet requirements
  • Eight crucial thermal design aspects of telecom enclosure cooling
  • Descriptions of four commonly available temperature control solutions, including closed-loop cooling

"The telecommunications industry is facing a number of disruptive challenges, including how to effectively cool the equipment that makes this industry thrive," says Andy Cohen, President of Thermal Edge, Inc. "Demand for digital services continues to rise, and temperature control solutions for cooling the corresponding hardware must evolve to keep up with this demand. Overall costs must be minimized, and reliability must be enhanced. Our new e-book details the options available to telecom companies looking to protect their equipment and help prevent costly downtime."
