New Online Savings Estimator Delivers Personal Report of Savings from IP Consolidation

Intuitive Tool Provides Detailed Report of Money Saved using Secure Array™ over Traditional Network Deployments When Configuring Data Centre Cabinets

BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, UK, 11th January 2017 — Customers can now easily understand the cost savings of deploying Secure Array™ IP consolidation technology thanks to a new online savings estimator introduced by Chatsworth Products (CPI), the leader in data centre infrastructure.

The cost of configuring cabinets in the data centre can be significantly high because of the number of additional network ports and IP addresses needed to network sensors. Traditional networks typically require one connection for each PDU, environmental device and electronic access control system per cabinet.

Secure Array, an award-winning eConnect feature, reduces costs and minimises installation time by allowing customers to link up to 32 eConnect PDUs under a single IP address using standard Ethernet cables. Additional features include outlet grouping, data logging, threshold alarms and PDU cloning. Adding a second IP address provides failover capability, which allows functioning PDUs to continue communicating if a PDU in the array loses connectivity. 

Because eConnect PDUs seamlessly integrate with environmental monitoring and eConnect Electronic Access Control (EAC), 16 cabinets can be fully configured using only two connections instead of traditional deployments that require up to four network connections per cabinet. The online savings estimator demonstrates this substantial cost benefit.

Based on entered information such as number of cabinets, cost of network port and types of appliances used, the Secure Array Savings Estimator tool creates a comparison report between Secure Array and traditional network deployments, as well as total financial savings.



Additional information provided by the tool include:
Number of cabinets
Cost of each port
Number of connections needed
