Allied Telesis reduces power and goes 'green'

ECO-Switch technology will significantly reduce overall power consumption
  • 08 December, 2008 10:31

<p>Chiasso, Switzerland - Allied Telesis goes 'green' with its new ecologically engineered range of products which have been designed to operate with the lowest possible power consumption, saving the customer money whilst reducing their overall carbon footprint.</p>
<p>Alongside this new series of highly efficient devices, Allied Telesis has begun the process of re-engineering its existing products to identify and eliminate power wastage. To create this new range Allied Telesis has followed the approach of "measure and minimize" - measuring every single watt of power used by its products and reducing it to the lowest possible wattage in order to function efficiently.</p>
<p>"The trend for 'green' computing is here to stay and hence it is important for companies to reduce their carbon footprint," said Melvyn Wray, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing, EMEA at Allied Telesis. "Apart from compliance with legislative requirements, we decided to follow a 'measure and minimise' approach, which involves re-engineering our products from the ground up, looking at every component in turn to ensure the amount of power consumed was minimised. Our new range of 'green' solutions will hence save our customers a considerable amount of money in power costs, whilst retaining the high levels of performance they are accustomed to."</p>
<p>Apart from compliance with Energy Star energy efficiency specifications, a number of innovations have come together to reduce the power consumed by devices in the new range. One of these is Allied Telesis' 'ECO-Switch technology', which allows the user to run the device in the lowest possible power mode at the push of a button. Automatic turn-off for ports overnight ensures that when the switch is not being used it does not waste power. Also, when connected to Ethernet cables the device can detect the cable length and will drive less power through shorter cables.</p>
<p>The first product in Allied Telesis' new range will be the AT-9000/28 Layer 2 Switch and will be launched in Australia in January 2009.</p>

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
