Standard Chartered deploys CommScope program to save energy costs

Standard Chartered has selected CommScope’s Redwood building intelligence program to save energy costs, improve workplace experience and capture advanced occupancy data.

Redwood building intelligence program helps Standard Chartered to save energy through efficient LED lighting which can be controlled using the online Redwood management software or through a mobile device.

The company said its sensory network data allows bank to understand both its office space occupancy and energy usage.

The bank is already using the sensor data at The Forum to monitor space utilization and will also deploy Redwood desk-level sensors in Singapore.

Additionally, Standard Chartered selected CommScope certified PartnerPRO Network provider Xin Networks to design, install and maintain both locations.

“Since the Redwood solution has been operational, we know The Forum now uses approximately 60 percent less energy with six percent fewer lighting fixtures. In Singapore, we anticipate saving almost $100,000 USD during our first year of occupation,” said Denis McGowan, global head, Workplace, CRES, Standard Chartered.

Few days ago, CommScope released the latest version of its data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software suite with new features.

Last month, CommScope offered the indoor and outdoor hydrogen fuel cell backup power solution to data centers in North America.

Also, in March, CommScope announced Data Center on Demand that features a range of available data center options for organizations implementing an initial data center or adding to an existing facility.
