Watts Up With Nortel?

Nortel was using Kill-a-Watt, an inexpensive monitoring tool to show power loads to the crowds, along with their management software "Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator" detailing port by port performance and power consumption.

Speaking with Leger and other Nortel folks didn't leave me the impression that Nortel is in the dark about going, being or getting green.

The benefits of power efficient switches include reducing closet UPS sizing, cooling and electrical loading. Little by little, attacking energy in every way possible does lead to benefits.

So, there is some greening here at VoiceCon and as Nortel said, "2008 will be an awakening year for most when it comes to energy consumption." Tomorrow, Gary Audin is presenting, "Saving Money With Green VoIP."
