Barcelona, Spain – Cisco introduced its Cisco EnergyWise technology for Cisco Catalyst switches that measures, reports, and reduces the energy consumption of Internet Protocol (IP) devices such as phones, laptops, and access points. Cisco also announced industry partner solutions along with an intelligent middleware acquisition that will ultimately enable the management of power consumption for entire building systems such as lights, elevators, and air conditioning and heating.
Cisco EnergyWise is said to provide real-time, granular measurement capabilities to provide better visibility into energy savings across an entire organization, as well as specific places in the network. Cisco EnergyWise supports currently deployed Catalyst switches worldwide with a free software upgrade and new Catalyst switches beginning in February 2009.
Cisco is working with Schneider Electric for building utility management, SolarWinds for network monitoring, and Verdiem for monitoring PC power to extend EnergyWise as a platform for power management across IT and the building systems of an organization by early 2010.
