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 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.
Everyone looks forward to Friday: it’s the end of the workweek afterall! We get to enjoy dinners out with friends and family, head to the pub, go out dancing, or just have a quiet night at home with a bottle of wine and a movie.

This week, Cisco had two networking announcements: one on the Cisco WAAS portfolio and the other regarding everyone’s favorite switch (Catalyst).
Let’s take a closer look at some of this week’s news highlights:
