  • Slide Notes:The economic and environmental impacts of the steadily increasing amount of energy used to cool and power data centers have taken center stage. According to a Nemertes Research report, power and power scalability are the primary challenge for 63% of enterprises. How much of the power bill at your organization is for IT?The New York Times reported an estimate from experts that energy costs can be 40 percent of the cost of operating a data center. And according to EPA statistics, it costs $4.5 billion a year for the electricity to run the nation's server farms [\"Taming the Guzzlers That Power the World Wide Web\" by Matthew L. Wald, The New York Times, Nov. 7, 2007]. Typically the CIO and data center managers are not accountable for the data center portion of the utility bills The clear message is that the energy consumption pattern of IT and enterprise data centers must be radically altered, not in the future, but right now.
  • Chart is included to probe into the issues in more detail and to develop a deeper understanding of what the retailer needs from an IP solution. Financial and operations typically come up as the 2 most common issues. Questions to ask about Customer Focus: What initiatives are currently being put into place to address customer loyalty issues? (the retailer may suggest that the chain will look towards sales specialists that have deeper product knowledge of key products in the store. This increases the importance of IVR and wireless at the store level).Ask: If the retailer is in bigbox: Do they know what there call abandon rate is to the store?Do they currently have any in-store paging solutions? For clothing retailers: Ask if they have any issues with customer service in the fitting rooms (this is frequently sited as a problem area - due to lack of staffing - for retailers. Financial: Can offer to do an ROI if needed. Ask about calling frequency between store to corporate, Do they currently pay a service provider for conference calls? In probing Mitel discovered a retailer that was paying for 9000 conference calls a month! The ROI for the elimination of SP fees can be within a few months. Business Communications How many stores is the average regional manager responsible for and how often do the visit stores each month? What, if any, teleworking solutions do regional managers use today? Are there currently any home based employees within HQs? Is this a model that could be explored? How many buyers are employed within the corp? How often are the buyers on the road? Could a hotdesking model be implemented here? What communications tools do management have? Would twinning solutions ensure better accessibility? INDUSTRY BACKGROUND:SHINKAGE (THEFT) FACTS Did you Know… on average, theft is responsible for losses equal to 2 to 5 percent of turnoverA staggering 53 percent of unseen losses are the result of employee theft.But it is time for retailers to say ‘BOGOF’ to those members of staff who betray their trust and use their positions to line their own pockets, especially as it accounts for more than 50 per cent of all store theft, the values involved range from between 10 to 20 times those of items stolen by customers. However, the good news is that because the crime occurs at the EPOS, modern technology is now more able to detect it, whether it is ’sweet hearting’, refund fraud or straight-forward till dipping.North American reports demonstrate that sshoplifting and customer theft is increasingly driven by organized crimeSource: IMS Research 2004
  • There are 6 gases that contribute to global warming and ozone depletion. The Climate Registry and other organizations around the world measure these on a variety of voluntary or mandatory reporting policies depending on regional legislation.Everything from purchased electricity to employee commuting can be tracked and converted into annual tonnage of emissions. Each source plays a role and each emitter has control over some of the their sources. An emitter’s ability to control and improve on emissions is a continual balance between corporate will and economic business requirements.
  • There are many opportunities going forward and Mitel is continuously evaluating choices, benefits and impact.Are you motivated enough to do your part?Are you motivated enough to step forward and volunteer to drive Mitel forward?If so….
  • Slide Notes:Mitel has a long standing environmental policy supported by senior management and the board of directors: Mitel is committed to protecting the environment as part of operations and in the development, testing, distribution, ultimate disposal of products and in continual improvement in environmental performance. This policy has been the core of our environmental management system and our ISO14001 certification since 1999.Many people and companies are now realizing that greening a company is rapidly becoming not just about being a good corporate citizen or corporate responsibility, or about meeting local regulations but also about bottom line benefits CIOs are being profoundly affected by this rapidly growing data center power consumption (up by an unprecedented 23 percent since 2005). The associated invisible CapEx and OpEx power and cooling costs of supporting this growth are now being baked into future IT financials. CIOs are going to be faced with very painful budget choices—like cutting back on new application development IDC Survey done of top 500 enterprise CIO level on the reasons for investing in Green ITOther green conscious activities include:Corporate travelRecyclingCommuting, rideshare, cyclingTeleworking, teleconferencing or on-line collaboration
  • Slide Notes:Over 50% of the energy consumed by data centers is now utilized for power and cooling infrastructureOver the next 5 years, the cost to power and cool the worldwide installed base of servers is projected to grow 4X compared to the growth rate for new server spendingSource: IDC# 211280
  • Slide Notes:Increasingly Green IT is appearing on the agenda of Corporate CIO’s and has begun to influence buying criteria and end of life disposalAccording to IDC's U.S. Green IT survey, 80% of executives say that Green IT is growing in importance for their organization, and 43% say they consider a vendor's \"greenness\" when selecting their suppliers.

  • Full-line, full service grocery wholesaler to over 400 independent retailersFinancial, Insurance, HR, marketing (merchandising and pricing) support“In the past, installing the pricing application usually translated into a full day at the customer site to configure the software and train the staff. It was a very expensive and laborious process,” notes Hendrickson. “Now, we’re able to install the application, train the employees and answer any questions in a fraction of the time. From an efficiency and cost perspective, this application has paid for itself many times over.” John Hendrickson, IT Manager, Laurel Grocery CompanyUsing IP technology and advanced collaboration applications, Laurel Grocery has been able to cut travel in half
  • If the approximate commute distance is 7.9 miles and the average car emits 1.1lbs of CO2 per mile then it can be calculated that each employee that works from home just one day per week prevents 834lbs of CO2 entering the air. Multiplied by 100 teleworkers this equates to 83,400lbs or slightly less than 42 tons of CO2 each year. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency figures indicate that if just 10 percent of the nation's workforce telecommuted just one day a week, Americans would conserve more than 1.2 million gallons of fuel per week.A June 2006 report by nonprofit organization, Environmental Defense, shows that in 2004, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from personal vehicles in the United States totaled 314 million metric tons. Additionally, even though American’s vehicles represent just 30 percent of nearly 700 million cars in use worldwide, they are responsible for 45 percent of the CO2 emitted by automobiles around the world.<number>03/24/09

  • Slide Notes:The growth of VoIP and the deployment of IP phones are increasing the power and air conditioning requirements in the data center, LAN and telecom closets. The selection of server blades, storage units, core and edge switches, UPS backup, what form of PoE delivery is installed, in addition to Class 2 or 3 IP phones will all contribute to the energy bill. Is TDM more or less power efficient than Voice Over IP – TDM based solutions are more energy efficient but without the same flexibility to combine both voice and data functionality. For those organizations considering a migration over to VoIP, Mitel’s approach is to consider the entire network and applications structure.
  • Slide Notes:Feature, functionality and price have been the traditional buying criteria when considering IP phones not energy consumption. There are two classes of IP sets on the market. The class 2 IP phone consumes less than 7 watts per phone. The class 3 phone can consume as much as 13 watts per phone. As the functionality increases, the power consumption increases. Large color displays, broadband codecs and gigabit operation are three major reasons for higher power consumption.Compared midrange sets (5312, cisco 7910 and avaya 4602sw) as they are typically the ones that constitute the majority of sets in an average installation. Phone power numbers are what we have for typical usage which is to say when the phone is idle. Electricity rate comes from the Energy Information Administration's \"Monthly Energy Review\". CO2 emissions for electricity comes from the EPA and is based on a national average. Cable loss comes from Mitel R&D groupNote Electrical rates vary significantly and are higher in NY and CA ( in the 10 cent – 17 cent range) as well as in some urban areas. The savings mentioned in this diagram are conservative. The latest EPA figures are indicating that the average power rate is much higher, 9.4 cents/kWh producing an even greater savings than indicated
  • Data demonstrates the idle power demands of equivalent and popular systems at idle which accounts for 80% of a phone’s state.Interestingly Nortel, Shoretel and Cisco all quote themselves as being 40% better than their competitors. So who’s right? Only Mitel compares the data side by side and with the most common phones.20% low, 60% mid range, 20% high end phone set mix assumed.
  • Slide Notes:Provide a system level perspective of not only the utilities costs but also the carbon emissions related to a 1000 user system, fully redundant standard network configuration, using a typical mix of bid sets.This chart depicts the bottom line costs for running a 1000 user system. The savings would be 10 times greater for a 10,000 user system. The enterprise should also remember that the utility power rates are rising rapidly, between 5 and 20% per year. Another area to keep in mind is the notion of carbon pricing which a number of states and Canadian provinces are considering introducing within the next two years
  • Slide Notes:The power conservation mode used in LAN switches uses the IEEE Link Layer Discovery protocol (LLDP) standard which is similar to Cisco’s CDP. These protocols operate from the LAN switch to the IP phone to determine the power class and deliver the appropriate power level in 0.1 watt increments. The conservation mode turns of the display when there is no phone activity thereby further reducing the energy consumption. The LLDP or CDP features are available on several vendors’ LAN switches.The LLDP and CDP protocols can be used to negotiate many features like security and power consumption. This protocol may already be in the enterprise’s LAN switches and not turned on or the LAN switch can be upgraded with a software download. LLDP/CDP allows better tuning of the power supplies and reduces the power conversion unit requirements.
  • Leaving the IP phones running for 24 hours seven days a week may be unnecessary. There is a software feature in the edge/LAN switches which allows specific PoE ports to be turned off when not needed. The Power Conservation Module Software can be programmed to turn off PoE ports for IP phones and WLAN access points when not needed at night, holidays and weekends.Some IP phones and WLAN access points can be left on for emergency calls and 911. Assuming the IP phones are powered 12 hours per working day and turned off for nights, holidays and weekends, this feature could save 66 % of power for each IP phone and WLAN access point turned off. Companies should use this feature carefully. The IP phones should be powered up sequentially so that the there is not a flood of IP phone registrations that may overload the DHCP, DNS and call server.
  • Slide Notes:The average PC consumes about 80 watts. SUN has been a proponent of the thin client technology, SunRay. With power conservation emerging as a major issue, IT departments should consider thin clients just for the power reduction benefits. The thin client connected to a server over Ethernet can deliver all the functionality available in a desktop PC while consuming only 4 watts.
  • Slide Notes: Other areas to consider leveraging the value of IP in lowering power consumption include integrated telephony based applications to control lighting, heating and cooling of the office environments.

  • Quick FactsSince replacing the 6 cyl vans with 4 cyl Chevy HHR vehicles, not only have the technicians had more equipment room, but the company has also reduced fuel use by 150000L in Canada alone. This translates into a reduction of 359 metric tons of CO2 each yearOver the past 4 years Mitel has reduced electricity usage by 4% annually saving $239000 annually and reducing our indirect CO2 generation by 52 kg annually.Another major contributor to corporate carbon emissions is corporate travel. In 2007 Mitel Canadian employees travelled 5.2 million miles by airlines. In the first have of 2008, despite being in the middle of the integration effort our corporate miles travelled has been reduced by 20% saving $431000 and lowering our carbon emissions by 62 metric tons.
