Vigilent Wins Fierce Innovation Award for Data Centers and Named Best Green Application

Dynamic cooling management system recognized for innovation and industry leadership in the telecom sector

fierceinnovationawardOakland, CA. (Nov. 17, 2016) Vigilent, the leading provider of dynamic cooling management systems, today announced its selection as winner of the Fierce Innovation Award 2016: Telecom Edition in the data center category. Vigilent also won a Best in Show award as “best green application” in this prestigious customer-selected awards program from the publisher of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom, and FierceCable.

The Vigilent Dynamic Cooling Management system delivers immediate and measurable improvements in thermal SLA compliance, energy use and cooling capacity in data centers and telco facilities. Using machine learning software, a wireless mesh network of sensors and cooling unit controls, the system automatically matches white floor cooling to IT load in real time. Vigilent also delivers Prescriptive Analytics that automatically identify and highlight risks, such as faulty equipment or lack of cooling redundancy, and opportunities such as overcooled spaces and hidden capacity. The analytics also specify actions showing operators the best path to reducing risks, lowering costs and speeding time to revenue through more optimized use of existing facilities and faster edge build-outs.

“Being recognized by the telecom community is particularly rewarding,” said Dave Hudson, Vigilent CEO. “Carriers have implemented Vigilent across their data center, mobile switching and central office facilities and as a result seen significant reductions in energy spend and improvements in reliability.”

The Fierce Innovation Awards 2016: Telecom Edition showcases the most innovative products, solutions and technologies for network-based service providers looking to deliver the next generation of services. All submissions were evaluated based on effectiveness, ease of use, ROI and end user impact. Winners were announced at a live webcast earlier today, hosted by Fierce Markets.
