    Nextel, T-Mobile USA contract for battery maintenance


    Jan. 23, 2004 12:08 PM EST

    NEWTON, Mass.-Nextel Communications Inc. and T-Mobile USA Inc. have entered
    multi-million dollar contracts to use BatteryCorp's patent-pending OMS
    solution for battery preventative maintenance.
    The OMS solution provides Web-based management for testing, installing and
    recycling stationary batteries used by telecommunications companies.
    According to BatteryCorp, Nextel and T-Mobile will benefit from improved
    reliability of battery deployments, lowered maintenance and procurement
    expenses, and increased site survivability.

    "BatteryCorp is very pleased that these two leaders in the
    telecommunications industry have recognized the importance of our
    preventative maintenance solution in monitoring and assuring the life of
    their stationary batteries," explained Steven Dworkin, chief executive
    officer of BatteryCorp. "The blackout last August and the ongoing threat to
    national security have reinforced the need for the industry to do everything
    in its power to guarantee the dependability of its services."

    Cool! Now I don't have to worry about my aftermarket battery exploding in
    my poket, or starting a gas station explosion! ;-)

    Seriously, BTS and switch reliability is becoming more critical with more
    people depending in wireless networks. Cingular in the northeast (and esp.
    CT) depends heavily on rolling our portable generators when needed
    (resulting in interruptions -- not cool). Its good to see the carriers
    being proactive in reliability.

    ISO New England recently but off all of Southeastern Mass. a month or so ago
    for about 2 hours (after a power plant fire). I was mid-call with another
    T-Mo customer -- we were both located in the affected area. Our
    conversation continued completely unaffected when the switch was hit! We
    fared *much* better than the experience I'd witnessed with the August NE
    blackout...

    Its not being proactive, rather reactive, as is usual with large
    companies. If they were proactive they would have already had
    generators setup before the huge blackout last year.

    Withour sounding rude.... I hope you were not thinking that this had
    anything to do with the actual cell phone batteries. This is for the
    telecom infrastructure.
