CommScope's hydrogen fuel cell solution will provide 64 hours of backup power to the data center at the SCTE's headquarters in Exton, PA. It's currently being installed and is expected to be operational next month. The deployment is the first for the alternative-energy solution with a cable industry organization.

The solution uses hydrogen-powered fuel cells to provide an environmentally friendly DC backup power solution for headends and hub equipment. Its only by-products are heat and water. The proton exchange membrane hydrogen fuel cells are housed inside an environmentally secure cabinet for outdoor deployment.
