Our Network Proxy technology, now being standardized at Ecma TC32-TG21, allows PCs to maintain Internet connectivity using an ultra low power Proxy (say, 0.5W). The Network Proxy drastically reduces PC energy footprint (say, less than 1/100th of its max energy usage), while making PC “Always Available” to the network and server applications, and waking PC, when more processing is needed.
