TOKAI Communications, a Japanese Telecom company, implemented Sightline Systems to deploy intelligent air conditioning control in server rooms.
Best known in the U.S. for its video games, TOKAI Communications is a Japanese Telecom company providing DSL services and network solutions. Their flagship solution, “Smart Facility Manager”, provides a cloud-based method for power saving and work efficiency in the server room management. By collecting environmental data with IoT technology and visualizing it with Sightline EDM™, the leading advanced data analytics system on the market, TOKAI successfully deployed intelligent air conditioning control with a 30% reduction in electric power and operational workload.
TOKAI wanted to be able to collect data around their entire data center in an effort to make better, more data-driven decisions when it came to deploying computer resources rather than deploying workloads on systems with availability. This would help them evaluate the temperature in order to deploy to the coolest areas which would improve HVAC efficiency in their computing center.
“One of the distinct advantages of Sightline EDM™ is its ability to automatically identify data interrelations and extract and correlate any combination of data points. We chose Sightline not only for that but because its UI was friendly enough for our data center staff to use without extensive data science experience. The overall cost for performance is simply far superior from what other solutions provided.”
– Mr. Toshiharu Sato Head of Planning IoT Solutions Promotion Division of TOKAI Communications
Japanese Telecom company TOKAI Communications successfully optimized data center temperature controls and significantly reduced cost of electric power by a demonstrated 30%. These savings wouldn’t have been possible without Sightline EDM™. The homegrown temperature control AI programs composing the core system continues to be customized to meet customers’ needs.
