APC Staying connected in your home office

When working from home, a loss of power is more than just a slight inconvenience. Power loss means no internet, no business meetings, no data processing, and no productivity is able to continue. This can put businesses seriously behind on their workload, costing them money and forcing them to miss deadlines. In a world where working from home is so popular, or even essential in some cases, having reliable internet and power is absolutely vital in order to keep business running as usual. Luckily, APC has you covered! With ranges of surge protectors and UPS, APC can keep you connected and protected so you can focus on what’s important.

What is a Surge Protector?

A surge protector provides connected devices with a defence against electrical surges to ensure no damage occurs.

What is a UPS?

A UPS, or uninterruptible power supply, when connected to your devices, provides surge protection and a continuous source of power. This guarantees that your network and equipment will be protected against all power disturbances, and able to continue running in all circumstances. It offers battery backup, voltage fluctuations, and surge protection all in one.
