Here’s another example of using wireless sensor networks to easily implement data gathering. IBM’s Systems Director Active Energy Manager (AEM) will support Arch Rock’s PhyNet IP (Internet protocol)-based wireless sensor network technology to monitor and manage energy usage in corporate data centers. The integrated products, now available, will transmit a set of power and thermal data gathered by strategically-placed Arch Rock wireless sensors. The data will be displayed on the AEM Web interface, presenting users with a comprehensive view of their data centers’ energy consumption and environmental health.

Arch Rock’s IP-based PhyNet platform implements a tiered, scalable wireless sensor network architecture that includes what Arch Rock calls “the first WSN router,” interconnecting IETF 6LoWPAN wireless mesh networks with IPv4 or IPv6 enterprise networks.
