  Teleport Dishes   Teleport Dish  
  Powerful redundant arrays maintain connectivity on Galaxy 18.   24/7 staffing for telemetry tracking and control of SES2.  
  Server Rackspace   Co-Location Racks  
Co-location space in the teleport is temperature and humidified controlled for optimal equipment performance.
Co-Location facilities are fully environmentally controlled with fire detection and suppression systems.
  Multiple Fiber Paths   Fiber Paths  
The Napa teleport is connected by two completely separate primary fiber paths to multiple backbones.
The Woodbine Teleport uses a powerful SONET Fiber ring for maintaining connectivity in case of fiber cut.
  Generator Backup   Diesel Generator backup  
Two diesel generators provide for weeks of electrical power for potential long term power outages.
1500 KVA emergency power provided by three 12 cylinder 18.1 liter kVA synchronized redundant diesel generators.
  Battery Backup   Battery Bank  
An industrial quality UPS backup battery bank will supply instant and sustained power for maintaining 100% uptime.
There are several banks of high-kVA uninterruptible power systems available for protecting against brief power outages.
  HVAC Fire System   HVAC fire suppressant  
An HVAC fire suppressant system eliminates oxygen in a server & co-lo rooms to douse any size fire, without damage to sensitive electronic equipment.
