The final design of the Rapid Response Distribution Device included an uninterruptible power supply that provides power in the case of a power outage, a patch panel that allows reconfiguration without having to permanently change the box setup and keeps network equipment concealed from customers so switches cannot be modified, resulting in a system that is easy to store and transport when required.
