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.
