OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 13, 2018--Vigilent®, the leading provider of dynamic cooling management systems, announced it has joined the Step Up Declaration, an alliance of businesses announced today at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, CA. This alliance is dedicated to harnessing the power of emerging technologies and the fourth industrial revolution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across all economic sectors.

Using artificial intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT) technology, Vigilent reduces the amount of power required to efficiently cool rapidly growing and heat-producing data centers and telecom exchanges.
