Nortel Offers Energy Saving Incentive to Data Center Customers

Nortel introduced a promotion program that offers discounts based on three times the estimated annual energy consumption costs of a new Nortel data network solution to its customers in Europe, Africa and the Middle East (EMEA). With the promotion, Nortel is providing a price discount equivalent to three times the estimated current yearly power bill of the data network configuration purchased.

The discount value is calculated using the "Nortel Energy Efficiency Calculator". The energy efficiency tool was created by Nortel to enable decision makers to measure their energy consumption costs and identify the cost-saving opportunities of working with a Nortel data center solution. The Calculator enables customers to input various network deployment alternatives in network design and discover the potential energy cost savings of a Nortel solution, or even when a Nortel-for-Nortel upgrade will provide the return on investment.

Nortel said its gear consume up to 40 percent less power that similar offerings from a major competitor, based on independent third-party tests conducted by the Tolly Group.

The 'Nortel Powers Your Network Promotion' runs until December 31, 2008 and is available via Nortel's EMEA channel of accredited resellers.
