The technology Wake On Local area network (WOL) represents a communication standard that enables a remote device to be switched into or out of standby mode (stand by) by sending WOL packets in Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) network. This paper suggests the realization of a hardware device and its software provisioning, allowing access to the server application for generating WOL packets in LAN. The WOL protocol implementation does not require large computing power, which allows its integration in a number of alternative devices that have much lower price and power consumption compared to a typical computer system.
