  • 1. Press  Release               SELDON  SYSTEMS  ANNOUNCES  AVAILABILITY  OF  CONTINUITY  MOBILE  API     New  Mobile  API  for  Cable  Operators  Brings  The  Power  of  the  Continuity-­‐SPS  Power  Supply  Assurance   Monitoring  and  Maintenance  Tool  to  the  Hands  of  Mobile  Service  Engineers     ALPHARETTA,  Ga.,  July  31,  2015  /PRNewswire-­‐iReach/  -­‐-­‐  Alpharetta,  GA  based  Seldon  Systems,  Inc.,   manufacturer  of  Continuity-­‐SPS,  North  America's  leading  enterprise-­‐grade  network  power  assurance   solution,  is  pleased  to  announce  the  release  and  general  availability  of  the  Continuity  Mobile  API,  a   powerful   application   programming   interface   designed   to   help   cable   operators   place   the   power   of   Continuity-­‐SPS  into  the  hands  of  outside  plant  service  engineers  who  maintain  the  industry's  video,   data  and  VoIP  networks.     By  utilizing  the  API  to  integrate  Continuity  data  and  functionality  into  new  or  already  existing  mobile   applications,   cable   operators   can   conduct   seamless,   real-­‐time   maintenance   and   response   operations.    As  the  use  of  tablets  and  other  mobile  devices  has  grown  due  to  lower  acquisition  cost  and   increased   computational   power,   field   engineering   professionals   can   perform   many   time-­‐saving   operations   using   commonplace   hand   held   devices   executing   custom   programs   and   applications.   Working   in   collaboration   with   their   technology-­‐driven   customers,   Seldon   Systems   plans   to   make   Continuity  a  fixture  on  every  mobile  device  used  for  field  operations  in  the  cable  television  industry.     "The   Continuity   Mobile   API,"   explains   Michael   Shaw,   Vice   President   of   Marketing,   "is   the   ultimate   force-­‐multiplier  for  cable  operators  who  place  a  high  value  on  reliable  and  well-­‐maintained  physical   plant.    When  field  service  personnel  and  network  operations  supervisors  and  analysts  are  synchronized   and  connected  in  real-­‐time,  efficiency  isn't  merely  improved,"  stated  Shaw,  "it  is  supercharged."     The   company's   Continuity-­‐SPS   software   is   an   enterprise   class,   web-­‐based   platform   used   by   leading   cable   Multiple   System   Operators     (MSOs),   such   as   Comcast,   Time   Warner   Cable,   Charter   Communications,  Cogeco  and  Rogers  Communications  to  continuously  monitor  the  health  of  critical   outside  plant  standby  power  supplies.    Widely  considered  the  gold  standard  for  power  supply  status   monitoring   in   the   cable   industry,   Continuity   allows   operators   to   employ   cost   saving   workforce   management   practices   through   preventive   maintenance   routines   driven   by   the   powerful   diagnostic   data  contained  in  Continuity  consoles,  dashboards  and  reports.     As   a   standard   part   of   a   cable   operator's   maintenance   regimen,   extending   Continuity-­‐SPS   into   field   operations   allows   mobile   service   engineers   to   interact   with   the   same   centralized   tool   used   by   operations   staff   and   HFC   analysts,   speeding   situational   awareness   and   improving   accuracy   and   accountability.         "The  Continuity  Mobile  API  can  be  used  to  integrate  two  or  more  user  groups  responsible  for  different   roles  in  the  network  power  maintenance  and  health  regimen,"  added  Shaw.    "The  seamless  integration   of   field   personnel   and   network   support   teams   will   drive   operational   efficiency   to   a   new   level.   The
  • 2. Press  Release       standardization   of   real-­‐time   preventive   maintenance,   emergency   restoration   and   workforce   management  practices  becomes  easier  and  less  costly  with  the  Continuity  Mobile  API."    Another  factor   also  drives  the  company's  interest  in  the  widespread  use  of  the  new  API:  Employee  safety.     Because   outside   plant   technicians   often   perform   maintenance   and   repair   services   near   busy   intersections,  often  involving  devices  mounted  in  aerial  or  underground  enclosures,  the  technician's   ability  to  access  the  status  of  network  elements  from  the  safety  of  their  service  vehicle  can  prevent   unnecessary  actions,  or  pinpoint  necessary  actions,  thus  saving  time  and  exposure  to  the  elements.         "Field  service  engineers  are  the  firemen  and  policemen  of  the  information  age,"  said  Shaw.    "Many   outages   occur   during   inclement   weather,   which   poses   a   variety   of   safety   issues   for   the   men   and   women  in  the  field.  We  want  to  help  cable  operators  learn  how  to  leverage  the  power  of  software."     To  achieve  such  broad  market  appeal,  flexibility  and  customization  is  built  into  the  process.  Customers   purchasing   the   Continuity   Mobile   API   receive   several   hours   of   design   consultation   by   Continuity   development  experts.  Functions  enabled  by  the  API  include:       o Power   supply   /   transponder   latitude   and   longitude,   allowing   relevant   geospacial   interface  options   o Initiation  of  power  supply  standby  tests   o Updateable  Continuity  custom  fields  to  allow  service  notes  and  preventive  maintenance   records   o Full  hierarchy  access   o Data  View  Analytics   o Status  Alerts  &  Power  Mode   o Battery  Operation   o Remaining  Runtime  Estimate   o Remaining  Runtime  Source   o Portable  Generator  Status   o Additional  power  supply  status,  such  as:  Input  Voltage  (VAC);  Output  Voltage  (Volts)   o Total  String  Voltage  (VDC);  Output  Current  1  (Amps);  Output  Power  (Watts);  Inverter   Status  (On/Off  value)     "One  of  our  main  objectives  with  this  product,"  explains  Lucky  Nsirim,  Director  of  Solutions  at  Seldon   Systems,  "is  to  help  our  customers  integrate  Continuity  with  other  related  systems  to  create  an  even   more  powerful  solution.    In  the  military  we  were  taught  to  value  every  minute  spent  to  accomplish  a   mission.    Integrating  Continuity  into  a  mobile  strategy  for  plant  maintenance  and  workforce  efficiency   will   amplify   the   benefits   exponentially.    Every   minute,   hour   and   dollar   our   customers   save   working   more   efficiently   equals   greater   value   throughout   their   own   organization.   The   bar   will   be   raised   for   everyone."
