Plug Power Inc. has signed an agreement with Tyco Electronics Power Systems Inc. under which Tyco will market and sell Plug Power's GenCore 5T fuel cell systems for telecommunication backup applications throughout the United States and Canada.

Tyco Electronics will market, promote and sell the GenCore product through its direct sales force under both the Tyco Electronics and Plug Power brands. The distribution agreement formalizes a working relationship between the companies that has been actively addressing technology, marketing, reliability and certification for more than a year and is complemented by a previously announced nationwide service and installation agreement between Plug Power and Tyco Electronics Installation Services Inc.

"These systems are real and ready to deploy now," said Sabi Varma, vice president of marketing and business operations at Tyco Electronics Power Systems, in a statement. "We've taken the time to understand the technology and how it fits into telecom power systems, and we're ready to offer this disruptive technology to the market."

GenCore 5T is Plug Power's first direct hydrogen 5kW backup power product, designed to increase network reliability while reducing lifecycle costs for telecommunication networks.
