Portuguese term or phrase: no break e roteador
From a Brazilian contract for telecom services:


"Fica autorizada a Contratante a utilizar os seguintes equipamentos: 6 computadores, 1 scanner, 1 projetor multimídia, _1 no break, 1 roteador_, 1 hub e 1 modem."

Thanks!

English translation:UPS / router
Explanation:
I've seen "no break" used just the way it is in your excerpt, as a synonym for "uninterruptible power supply (UPS)".

Problem is, the non-U.S. users who've adopted the phrase don't realize that it's an ADJECTIVAL phrase, customarily used with a noun: "no-break power supply," "no-break battery back-up," etc.

Best English engineering usage would be "UPS," which is pretty much ubiquitous.

"Roteador," of course, is simply "router" (or, to be really picky about it, "router access server (RAS)," for which anyone who's still left at Cisco will thank you).

no break/ router


Explanation:
NO break fica como está, e é o aparelho que impede a perda de arquivos de um computador quando falta energia, mantendo o sistema operante por alguns minuos; roteador é a tradução de router nos trabalhos de telecom.

no break


Explanation:
In the context provided no break is the device, and it is widely known as such not even in Brazil, but in USA also. UPS is the resource, not the equipment.
