Wake-on-LAN BIOS Agent for UK Police Force

Data Synergy deliver wake-on-lAN BIOS agent for Police Force A UK police force wanted to reduce energy costs by turning off unused computers at night time. The force identified Wake-on-LAN (WoL) as the key technology for implementing night time system updates and anti-virus scans. However, a major problem was identified at the outset – there was no apparent way to enable WoL without visiting each PC individually. This was impractical and not cost effective.

Data Synergy created a unique, Windows-based, BIOS update agent. Implemented as an advanced Windows kernel driver that allowed the WoL feature to be remotely enabled on over 6,000 desktop computers without any technician visits. The solution has been in use for over four years and ultimately evolved into our PowerMAN product and Wake-on-LAN toolset.
