At the last IETF I presented a draft on the concept of a "Power Locator" feature.
I am interested to know if anyone knows of any relevant IP claims for what
the RFC addresses.
The draft is at:

The abstract in the RFC is:
This specification addresses how to request that a device should
enter a "power locator" mode for a limited period of time. The mode
involves a device cycling between a low and high power level in a
predictable manner so that a power metering device upstream in the
power distribution system can sense the signal and so determine where
the device draws its power from. This will be useful in many types
of buildings, particularly data centers and large commercial
buildings. This draft addresses operation of the device carrying out
the request, but not detailed operation of the device that makes the
request and interprets the results.
This draft is an initial discussion document to generate feedback and
