A pair of Eaton 9395 UPSs delivers the high availability, efficiency and small footprint required by OPCD.


As the administrative office of 9-1-1 for the city of New Orleans, the Orleans Parish Communication District (OPCD) is responsible for serving some 350,000 residents — not to mention an additional 350,000 daily commuters. To better respond to emergencies, OPCD built a new 9-1-1 center that required a UPS with the highest level of reliability to ensure that all the equipment remains functional 24x7.

When the 9-1-1 center hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony, two Eaton units were ready to answer the call. All of the equipment on the site used to provide 9-1-1 services to New Orleans is backed up by a 9395 UPS.
