Go Green with Adaptive Wireless LAN Power Management
Challenge
Cost-effective IT solutions that embrace environmental responsibility are in demand as
organizations start to reduce their carbon footprint. Solutions that are quick to implement, require
little or no capital investment, are environmentally beneficial, and deliver an immediate and
quantifiable financial return are highly valued. Organizations are looking for solutions that deliver
measurable savings for the wireless network and support their Green IT initiatives.
Solution
Intelligent control measures can help in creating a culture of sustainable business. These
measures and tools improve your operational efficiencies and reduce the energy consumption of
your wireless network. By implementing these measures, your organization can gain momentum
for its Green IT initiatives.
For the wireless network, Cisco offers adaptive power management capabilities that are built into
®
the Cisco
Unified Wireless Network through its management platform Cisco Wireless Control
System (WCS) running software release 5.1 and later. Cisco WCS adaptive power management
allows you to shrink your carbon footprint immediately through measurable reductions in energy
usage and operational expenses.
Cisco WCS Adaptive Power Management
®
Cisco WCS adaptive power management improves the power management of Cisco Aironet
lightweight access points and supports the Cisco Green IT initiative. This feature turns access
point radios on or off periodically at scheduled intervals while leaving the access point powered,
reducing the time required for network reconvergence (Figures 1 and 2).
