Cisco UPOE and EnergyWise at Interop Las Vegas 2012

May 17, 2012 at 10:46 am PST

Cisco UPOE is a hit, ramping up to more than 1 million ports annualized run rate since its introduction last year. Read what IT World Canada and CRN have to say about the opportunities afforded by Cisco UPOE.

Beyond powering a wide range of devices with 60W PoE power, Cisco UPOE really shines when it is combined with Cisco EnergyWise. EnergyWise allows you to monitor and control the power consumption of devices connected to the switches. The combined EnergyWise and UPOE demo at Interop showed how you can use the network to turn devices on and off remotely to save power when the devices are not being used. In the following video, Rich Zavala, Technical Marketing Engineer, explains to Jimmy Ray from TechWise TV how he is powering a multitude of devices over Ethernet including LED lights and personal telepresence units, and how Cisco EnergyWise automates energy management for IT and non-IT equipment connected to the switches.

Cisco UPOE Ramps to One Million Ports

March 22, 2012 at 8:00 am PST

Cisco Catalyst 4500E, our leading modular campus access switching platform, continues to maintain over 65% market share globally for modular Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports by addressing customer requirements through a continuous stream of innovations – witness the 60 Watt PoE capabilities (Cisco Universal Power Over Ethernet, or Cisco UPOE), and Supervisor Engine 7L-E which we delivered last year. We also launched Cisco Catalyst SmartOperations at Cisco Live London earlier this year in February as part of a broader launch across multiple switching platforms.

Cisco UPOE and the Art of Saving 2x the Power Output of Hoover Dam [Infographic]

November 18, 2011 at 2:51 pm PST

When someone mentions Power over Ethernet (PoE), what comes to your mind? If you are in IT, you may think about powering IP phones and wireless access points over the network. However, did you know that you can now power a whole new range of devices over the network with Cisco UPOE, including virtual desktop terminals, IP Turrets for financial trading, compact switches, personal telepresence systems, and more?

But how is this connected to saving energy? Read More »

Cisco UPOE at Interop New York

October 7, 2011 at 6:07 pm PST

Cisco Universal Power Over Ethernet (UPOE) can power a wide range of devices resiliently over the network with 60-watts of power per port. We showed a few of these devices getting powered through UPOE at Interop. Customers looking to deploy virtual desktops were impressed with the fact that they don’t have to pull 110/220V circuits for new campuses. Here is a short video of me walking through the demos at the show.
