New Integrated Offering from RF Code and Server Technology Simplifies Monitoring/Managing of Data Centre Power Usage and Environmental Conditions

Jan 09, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- RF Code and Server Technology today announced an integrated data centre solution making it significantly easier to monitor and manage the factors that impact the efficient, fiscally-smart running of a data centre.


The joint offering is an integration of RF Code's wire-free Sensor Manager solution with Server Technology's Sentry Power Manager (SPM) data centre power monitoring solution via an SPM API integration. Information gathered from RF Code's sensors flows into SPM software, providing a consolidated view of power and environmental data. RF Code monitors and sends to SPM data about: - Power utilisation, which RF Code's sensor collects from a Server Technology intelligent PDU - Temperature, humidity, air pressure fluid detection and more - Door open and close for greater security - Trending and alarming related to temperature, humidity, air pressure and dew point [Click here to view an on-demand webinar about the new solution.] "From the CIO and CFO down, everyone involved with data centre and facilities operations is concerned about the rising cost of power and cooling and the impact environmental conditions can have on data availability or uptime - whether from a bottom line, availability, operations, risk or compliance perspective," said Richard Jenkins, vice president, marketing, RF Code. "This solution empowers executive and operational decision makers to make critical financial and business continuity decisions to increase data centre efficiency." "Our joint integration advances our belief that the best of both worlds is often found by combining the best of solutions," said Calvin Nicholson, Server Technology's senior director of software and firmware. "RF Code's differentiated, wire-free solution maps perfectly to our emphasis on intelligent monitoring of the power that affects usage, efficiency and cost. We share this view of capable simplicity, which is demonstrated in the solutions we together bring to market."

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
