Verizon Wireless runs several call centers across the United States, providing service and support for its customers. These run advanced communications software and systems which are constantly monitored to ensure they offer the best solution for the company and its customers. As part of a growing awareness of the benefits of reducing energy consumption, Verizon Wireless made a commitment to deploy a range of technologies specifically designed to provide a “greener”, lower energy solution, without compromising on performance or reliability.

“At Verizon Wireless, we view going “green” as important, not only for the environment and our business, but also for our customers,” said Ajay Waghray, Chief Information Officer at Verizon Wireless. This move was enhanced by the deployment of NightWatchman Enterprise, to enable a single solution for 100 percent successful patch management and reduced power usage. Its WakeUp functionality powers on all PCs that are asleep or shut down for successful deployment of updates or patches, and also increases the speed at which software can be distributed and deployed.

NightWatchman reduces the power consumed by PCs by automatically powering down entire networks according to defined criteria. It ensures successful patching and safe reboots, saving open documents without user intervention prior to shutdown.

Verizon Wireless rolled out NightWatchman on 63,000 managed desktops companywide, an initiative which has accounted for a 24 percent reduction in both PC power consumption and CO2 emissions. With just a four-hour shutdown schedule per evening across the PC estate, savings are already US$1.3 million per year across an installed base of 63,000 PCs. This equates to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of some 7,700 tons per year.

Verizon Wireless is delighted with its savings, which have been achieved with no disruption or performance cost. The company is planning on longer shutdown periods. This will make even more savings in cost, CO2 emissions and energy consumption.
