EPICTOUCH services are delivered to your home through state-of-the-art fiber optic cable. This delivery method requires a battery backup unit(fig. 1) in the home. This unit powers the ONT/fiberbox on your house(fig. 2) Both of these items are provided by EPICTOUCH.
When electric power is lost at your home, the battery backup unit will provide electric power for phone service for up to 4 hours of talk time and 8 hours of standby time. To have phone service restored after 8 hours due to an electrical outage, a portable generator will need to be used to power the batter backup unit.
