Did you know that one rack of legacy equipment generates as much as 14 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year? That’s the equivalent of discharging 500 fire extinguishers, but just one commercial off-the-shelf server generates only three tons.
You can drastically reduce your network’s carbon footprint by eliminating or reducing this equipment, but it’s simply not possible to achieve sustainability goals without a plan to phase out legacy equipment.
I’m Brian James, here for an open dialogue about network transformation and sustainability.
Sustainability initiatives create business opportunities
The need for greater sustainability is becoming clearer every day, and the impacts to business are growing. Through our customer relationships, we’ve seen that sustainability initiatives create business opportunities.
Because newer, more sustainable technologies seek to reduce consumption and increase reuse of resources, they improve efficiency, cut costs and save time, as well as encourage innovation, which increases profitability.
Sustainability is about more than power consumption
Sustainability can best be achieved by reducing overall carbon footprint, but that is about much more than power consumption. Sustainability is about long-term, big-picture, transformative business strategy. The rewards of network transformation are well worth the effort and investment, especially over the long term.
In addition to lower energy costs, network operators can reclaim valuable real estate, reduce operations and maintenance costs, improve network reliability and resiliency, accommodate growth more easily, and generate more revenue with new services.
