Beltsville, MD – October 19, 2011 - AiNET, a leader in design, construction, operation,
and technology solutions for Internet data centers and fiber optic networks supporting
critical applications, today announced that it has been awarded U.S. Patent 7,962,772. The
patent recognizes AiNET's solution to a class of problems that reduce power availability in
all existing data centers, hospitals and other critical facilities that depend on critical power.
More than a dozen international patents are pending. AiNET’s announcement comes
following a period of high-profile power outages in otherwise state-of-the-art data centers
around the world.
Facilities dependent upon critical power are
typically equipped with generators, automatic
transfer switches, uninterruptible power systems
(UPS), and extensive battery backup or similar
systems. On the whole, this configuration of
critical power elements works well to ensure basic
critical power availability, but certain conditions
create vulnerabilities in the protection scheme due
to a lack of proper integration. The AiNET
solution, the Critical Power Protection Supervisor,
has advanced beyond this set of independent
critical power components, by unifying them into an automated, intelligent critical power
system that addresses the gaps.
As a way of enhancing the most meticulously-designed and implemented power delivery
configuration, i.e. TIA-942 Tier IV data centers, an AiNET team developed the solution
after an extensive search for anything comparable.
In discussing operational measures to respond to the subtle failure-causing conditions that
slip under the normal design and detection measures, Deepak Jain, President of AiNET,
said, “Relying on a person to notice the problem and intervene isn’t a predictable or
scalable approach. We developed this technology [the Critical Power Protection
Supervisor] because the best solution is an automated one”. He added, “That outages are
occurring in otherwise well-designed data centers underscores that vulnerabilities in critical
power remain. Fortunately, adding this technology in an existing facility is straightforward
and generates an instant ROI for projects yet to be built.”

As an overall power system manager, the AiNET Critical Power Protection Supervisor will
find application in the management and integration of renewable and traditional power
sources as well as in capacity demand management.
Because all critical power installations in the world are exposed to the vulnerabilities
addressed by the Critical Power Protection Supervisor, AiNET will make it available
worldwide to design/build firms and manufacturers and distributors of critical power
