Valley Telephone Cooperative deploys battery management systems

Servato, provider of active battery management solutions to telecom, power, transportation, and solar companies, has announced that Valley Telephone of Willcox, AZ will be joining other service providers currently deploying Servato´s battery management systems across the country, the company said.

Over the course of the coming year, Valley will retrofit existing sites and add new sites with Servato´s patented service assurance technologies enabling Valley Telephone to deliver uninterrupted services to its customers.

Servato plans to expand its management & monitoring services to include other key site infrastructure components. Valley´s investment in the network using Servato´s technology will serve as the foundation for an even more reliable network especially during power outages in Arizona and New Mexico where distance to and between sites can delay restoration of service.

Valley Telephone Cooperative was founded in 1962 after the underserved population of rural southeastern Arizona and southeastern New Mexico banded together to create a new service offering.

Today, twenty rural communities have connectivity through Valley Telephone Cooperative. These small communities now have similar opportunities to those in urbanized areas because of the commitment to serve a customer despite the rural landscape. Valley´s sprawling network is a challenge to maintain; however, their forward-thinking investment in Servato´s data platform streamlines it all.

Headquartered in New Orleans, La., Servato is a provider of active battery management solutions to telecom, power, transportation, and solar companies. Servato´s solutions allow companies and infrastructure operators to reduce CapEx and OpEx by extending battery life, reducing maintenance costs and streamlining operations.
