New energy-saving phone system for businesses unveiled

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

A new telephone system designed to help businesses reduce the amount of energy used by their existing networks has been unveiled.

The new Go Green internet protocol (IP) solution, created by Extreme Networks and Avaya, has been designed to help businesses cut their carbon footprint and can reduce energy usage on a phone network by over 50 per cent.

Discussing the new product, Extreme Network's UK and Ireland regional director Paul Phillips said: "With companies rightly looking to reduce their carbon footprint, solutions such as Go Green from Extreme Networks and Avaya are highly relevant and sought after.

"Through the automated power down of a block of IP phones in areas of the building not regularly used at night or weekends, companies can save money and do their bit for the environment in one go."

The launch of the new telephone system for businesses has come after DssW released new power management software aimed at companies.

Power Manager Version 3.7 gives users a chance to automate when they would like their computers to log them off, go into standby mode or shut down.
