Judges Cited Vigilent As “Cool”Oakland, CA. (Dec. 9, 2015) Vigilent® won the Internet of Things Award 2015 as the Best Turnkey Solution in a ceremony hosted by Total Telecom on December 1st in London. Vigilent, the leading provider of dynamic cooling management systems for data centers and telecom facilities, was singled out for having a “cool” solution, along with an “impressive case study for a tested and generally available solution.”
The Internet of Things Awards, in its second year, recognizes innovation and excellence in the IoT ecosystem. The awards are held in conjunction with the World Communications Awards, which are globally recognized for highlighting companies that have demonstrated innovation, merit, and outstanding performance in the telecom field.
“Vigilent is an excellent example of how the power of IoT can transform business operations,” said Vigilent CEO Dave Hudson. “We are proud to win this prestigious award and to be recognized by the telecom community for addressing their critical business priorities with innovative technology.”
Vigilent keeps IT equipment safely cooled in mission critical facilities through an elegant, closed loop turnkey IoT solution. Using a wireless mesh network of sensors, the Vigilent system collects data from hundreds of locations throughout a facility. Vigilent’s machine learning software creates and continually updates a sophisticated model of a facility’s cooling operations. The Vigilent system then optimizes cooling in real-time, even as variables affecting airflow (such as equipment performance and facility configuration) and thermal conditions (such as weather and IT load) change.
In such a closed loop system, cooling resources are dynamically adjusted to reduce thermal risk and maximize efficiency minute-by-minute, year-by-year, delivering persistent savings to customers. The Vigilent system also delivers predictive analytics to inform management decisions about cooling capacity, energy, and reliability.
