Server for Remote Generation of Wake on LAN Packets in the LAN
The technology Wake On Local area network or WOL (lit. translation wake on LAN) is a communication standard that allows a remote device to be turned on or brought out of standby mode (stand by) by sending specially formatted packets on Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) network. The paper offers a solution for using the technology WOL, based on a hardware device with multiples low cost and power consumption compared to a standard computer system. This implementation was based to the simplicity of the WOL protocol and low requirements for computing power.
