Nortel Power Savings Drive Enterprise Customer Adoption

July 8, 2008 6:03 AM ET

Enterprises are plotting a course to save money and at the same time, help the environment by minimizing networking power consumption with Nortel’s(1) (TSX: NT)(NYSE: NT) energy-saving networking solutions.

Customers are adopting Nortel communications solutions after factoring in the projected energy savings, demonstrating the impact of Nortel’s industry leadership in energy-efficiency. Customers that have taken the energy challenge include Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants(2), Sweetwater Sound(2), Earth Rangers(2) and partner, Ronco Communications and Electronics Inc.(2)

“As customers move toward unified communications, we have designed our networking solutions to be energy efficient from the start. Providing relief from soaring energy costs through reduced energy consumption is not only good for business, it’s good for the environment,” said Joel Hackney, president, Enterprise Solutions, Nortel. “Nortel products are proven by third-party, independent experts to use significantly less power than the primary competitor while delivering robust performance and reliability. The introduction of the Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator is a simple way to show exactly how much power and cost savings can be accrued by comparison.”

Nortel’s energy efficient products have been proven by new, independent testing to use less power as compared to the incumbent, legacy provider. The new test, conducted by the Tolly Group(2), shows similar, end-to-end competing networking solutions cost up to 64 percent more in electricity costs to operate over five years as compared to Nortel’s solutions. The new report, “Nortel Converged Data Network Solution: Evaluation of Energy Consumption and Projected Costs for a Converged LAN Campus, Data Center and WAN,” can be accessed here.

Coinciding with the availability of the results of the new report is the on-line availability of the Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator, now available for anyone to use. It offers robust functionality, allowing users to customize deployment scenarios based on networking configurations, equipment and its associated cooling costs, local power costs by region and other factors. It provides the means to calculate their networking energy requirements with greater accuracy than ever before, offering valuable insights regarding trade-offs associated with deployment options. Most importantly, it is designed to be simple and intuitive.

Prairie Cardiovascular Consultants, a nationally-recognized leader in cardiovascular care, was building a highly resilient, high-speed data infrastructure to support three main facilities as well as 29 remote offices statewide. They turned to Nortel’s 8600 and 5500 series Ethernet Routing Switches for the solution. “Not only were we able to achieve a highly redundant network core, we realized a significant savings of both power and heat-generation by using Nortel’s ERS line of switches”, said Sean O’Hara, manager of Systems Engineering, Prairie Cardiovascular. “We used the Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator and found we could save thousands of dollars over competing approaches over five years using Nortel’s energy efficient products in our data and communications centers.”

“As a hospital, our primary concern is for the care of our patients, and Nortel’s solution enables us to take those savings and use them where they are needed the most. At the same time, the solution reduces the networking power requirements as well as those associated with cooling and facilities,” he said.

Sweetwater Sound, a leading retailer of musical instruments and pro audio equipment, recently built a green headquarters building, one of the firstLeadership in Environmental and Energy Design(2) (LEED) Gold-certified in Indiana. Given their commitment to energy efficiency, it was only logical that they chose their networking solution to complement their green ideals. John Hopkins, vice president of operations for Sweetwater, explained, “We just feel like it’s the right thing to do. We’ve always been very environmentally friendly. The ‘green’ building concepts extend beyond just the building. It’s a comprehensive plan looking at the entire site. We were pleased that Nortel is focused on energy efficiency as we use their data networking, voice and contact center solutions.

“We have reviewed the Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator and believe this is a significant advancement for companies to model both their voice and data networks’ power consumption and BTU load. These capabilities resulted in our ability to size and reduce our cooling and electrical requirements for the data center, which in turn helped in our LEED certification. It also worked into our overall plan since we have been a Nortel customer for several years. I guess you could say we were energy efficient with Nortel solutions all along,” he said.

Earth Rangers is a Canadian non-profit organization that harnesses the power of entertainment to help children learn ways in which to protect the environment. An example of its own environmental stewardship is its headquarters, which has a LEED Gold designation, and uses 79 percent less energy than a typical building its size.

“Nortel shares our interest in energy conservation and recycling,” said Peter Kendall, executive director of Earth Rangers. “Nortel was able to incorporate these values into designing a communications solution that integrates many business functions into a single device – thus reducing power and cooling requirements. We are pleased about reusing our exiting digital telephones and using Nortel’s VPN technology to allow our employees to work remotely instead of commuting to work everyday. We also appreciate Nortel for teaming with our organization to help us achieve our environmental goals.”

Partners are also finding the tool invaluable, given the dramatic increase in green IT initiatives.

“Energy efficiency is top of mind among many customers, and the ability to chart their energy needs now is an extremely important consideration for purchasing decisions,” said John Wrona, executive vice president, Sales & Marketing, Ronco Communications and Electronics, Inc. “The Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator is very user-friendly and simple, yet is precise in its ability to chart networking energy requirements. Most importantly, it is helping us close deals with customers. Nortel has been on a tear recently and their message that their switching products offer superior performance and consume half the power over their primary competition has struck a chord,” he said.

Nortel’s energy efficient converged data network solutions can save large enterprise customers millions of dollars in power and cooling costs over the life span of their network deployment. For example, take a large enterprise network connecting thousands of users and IP devices (IP Phones) with hundreds of Ethernet switches located in New York City where electrical costs average 15 cents per kilowatt hour. Comparing the power and cooling savings over five years, the Nortel network is estimated to cost $3.2M less to operate than the equivalent design of the primary competitor.

Take the energy efficiency challenge and see what savings can be realized with Nortel’s solutions. In North America, please visithttp://www.hyperconnectivity.com/saveenergy. For other regions, please visithttp://www.hyperconnectivity.com/getthefacts.

The Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator helps find ways to minimize networking energy consumption and associated expenses. It is an IT planning tool that allows decision makers to measure their energy consumption costs and identify the cost saving opportunities of working with Nortel. It enables customers to input various network deployment trade-offs in network design and determine their potential energy cost savings when using Nortel solutions.

Nortel Named Official Converged Network Equipment Supplier for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paraly

01-May-2007

VANCOUVER – Nortel* [NYSE/TSX: NT] and the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) announced that Nortel will be the Official Converged Network Equipment Supplier for the 2010 Winter Games. As part of the sponsorship agreement, Nortel will supply the network communications equipment required for what will be the first all-IP converged Games network.

Nortel will be providing the converged local area network (LAN) equipment to VANOC at 15 Games venues in both Vancouver and Whistler, as well as at the Vancouver 2010 headquarters and numerous supporting venues.

In addition, Bell Canada earlier selected Nortel to supply the wide area network (WAN) equipment it will use to build a core network to enable secure and reliable communications among all event locations. Bell Canada, the exclusive Telecommunications Services Provider and Premier National Partner for the 2010 Winter Games, will use Nortel VoIP, Metro Ethernet and IP solutions to create and deploy a dedicated carrier-class IP network for VANOC that securely converges all voice, video, and data communications.

With Nortel’s selection by VANOC for the Games’ LAN network and by Bell Canada to supply equipment for the Games’ WAN network, Nortel equipment will be used end-to-end for the 2010 Winter Games.

“VANOC and Bell Canada chose Nortel to supply the network infrastructure for one of the most important, most visible, and most watched sporting events in the world,” said Mike Zafirovski, president and CEO, Nortel. “It takes world-class networking expertise to support an event of this magnitude. With the eyes of the world upon them, VANOC can depend on the strength of Nortel to ensure the success of the Games.”

“At Vancouver 2010, we are pleased to build on Canada’s proud history of advancing the way people communicate,” said John Furlong, VANOC CEO. “With Nortel joining our team, we will provide a positive human experience through reliable, secure and mobile communications. We are delighted to welcome Nortel’s employees to our team and invite them to help us celebrate the true spirit and potential of our country.”

Nortel’s six-year Official Supplier partnership with VANOC provides sponsorship rights for the 2010 Winter Games and the Canadian Olympic Teams participating at the Beijing 2008, Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 Olympic Games.
Designed and delivered by Bell Canada and using Nortel equipment, the 2010 Winter Games will be the first ever to converge all of its voice, video and data traffic over a single IP-based network backbone. This will also be the first Olympic and Paralympic Games to use voice over IP (VoIP) for all event locations, allowing athletes and support staff to have true user portability through a phone number that roams with them wherever they go.

“With all our athletes and event staff relying on this network, absolute network reliability and security are of paramount importance,” said Ward Chapin, chief information officer, VANOC. “Nortel’s rich history of designing and deploying some of the world’s most reliable and robust communications infrastructure is why we asked Nortel to design and build our converged LAN. In addition, Nortel’s support to Bell Canada in building the Games WAN will also increase the seamless power of the network while lowering costs to build and operate the network.”

“Given our experience with and trust in Nortel in supporting the delivery of our commercial networks, it was only natural that Bell Canada select Nortel to help us build the wide area network for the 2010 Games,” said Justin Webb, vice president, Olympic Services, Bell Canada. “We are working together closely to create a network for VANOC that delivers uncompromised performance, security, and simplicity, from the core infrastructure down to the individual user.”

Bell Canada will use the Nortel Ethernet Routing Switch 8600 and Optical Multiservice Edge 6500 to create a resilient, high-bandwidth transport network that connects all venues and supporting sites, with the Ethernet Routing Switch 5000 Series converging communications at all location sites. Bell Canada will also be providing network-based VoIP within all VANOC sites and competition venues utilizing Nortel’s market leading Communication Server 2000-Compact and IP Phone 1100 Series sets.

Nortel will directly supply LAN, WiFi, management and network security solutions to VANOC for all venues and supporting sites. Nortel Global Services will also be provided to support the design and deployment of the network.

Polycom

Polycom’s workplace wireless telephony solutions allow on-site mobile employees to roam freely throughout the workplace while delivering continuously reliable and available voice and data communications. These solutions interoperate with a customer’s existing Voice over IP (VoIP) or time-division multiplexing (TDM) call control system, providing business-grade telephone functionality to a wireless device.

Unlike cellular phones, two-way radio or paging systems, workplace wireless systems provide ubiquitous on-site coverage and support a full range of call control functions. Incoming calls are directed to the appropriate handset then make use of standard telephony features such as forward, transfer, conference and hold to process calls as needed. For outgoing calls, individuals can easily connect with co-workers on-site or to off-site locations, making effective use of existing wire line billing plans and/or VoIP infrastructures.

Workplace wireless systems integrate with other on-premises applications, such as nurse call systems, location-based services, and voice recognition systems to streamline everyday business processes. By combining customers’ existing investments in wire line infrastructure and with the power of workplace mobility, businesses of all sizes realize enhanced worker productivity and deliver improved levels of service to their customers.
