Certified CRi, Means Never Losing Mission Critical Data
Certified CRi is based on a new telecom Standard, modeled on a four-tier specification for resilience to extreme weather and grid outages. It certifies hardware, installation practices and maintenance, to protect customers as well as providers.
When it's Certified CRi, the solution is more than a matter of faith. It's based on a collaboration of the greatest minds and experience in telecom and energy.
Resilience is more than a promise, it's our passion.
