Netformx, which provides guided selling for the telecommunications and networking industry, has added Tripp Lite UPS Systems to the DesignXpert knowledge base, enabling users to select UPS power backup components during the design process. This new partnership between Tripp Lite and Netformx makes it easier to assure the safety of networks designed utilizing DesignXpert.
With the UPS products, resellers can easily address network power backup issues during the initial design stage. DesignXpert can now generate a UPS power report from any drawing, allowing the design engineer to compute power consumption for devices. A hyperlink to Tripp Lite's online UPS configurator makes it easy to select the optimum UPS power backup system.
DesignXpert supports the complete life cycle of data and telecommunication networks, from initial high-level design, through detailed design, to automatic purchase order creation. It also integrates a detailed and accurate Bill of Materials (BOM) with a detailed graphical view of the designed network, without requiring manual reentering of any information.
