Sizing a UPS for ATT Fiber Equipment
FWIW - I obtained one of those "Kill-A-Watt" devices that let's one measure line voltage, frequency, device power consumption... I decided to use this device to determine what kind of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) I would need to keep the ONT/NID (Optical Network Terminal)/(Network Interface Device) and the RG (Residential Gateway) up and running in the event of loss of power to the house. I also want to put a UPS in place to handle brown-out conditions and other short-term transients.
Below is a listing of steady-state measurements I obtained from the various pieces of equipment. I have also included the STB (Set Top Box) receiver, and my television model for points of comparison.
ONT/NID - 3.4Watts [[Alcatel-Lucent 7368 ISAM G-010G-A]]
RG - 12.6Watts [[Arris BGW210-700]]
STB - Set Top Box - 10.5Watts [[PACE - IPH8010]]
40" LED HDTV - 77Watts [[Samsung UN40EH5300]]
