Cisco EnergyWise Combining with JouleX Technology Simplifies Energy Management Deployments

July 13, 2011 - 0 Comments

Increasing energy demands as well as rising energy costs have driven organizations to investigate ways to reduce energy consumption.  To be effective in energy management, the solution must be simple and easy to deploy. Cisco EnergyWise combining with JouleX technology offers such a solution.

A little bit of background about Cisco EnergyWise. Introduced in January of 2009, Cisco EnergyWise uses the network to collect power information of IP-network-connected devices. Through the intelligence unique to the network and the reach of Cisco networks, Cisco has helped many customers to monitor, report and reduce energy consumption, and ultimately cut energy and operational costs.  Most importantly, EnergyWise is free to Cisco Catalyst switching and access routing customers, as it is integrated into the Cisco IOS software.

Realizing that customers may have their own preferences in management applications, Cisco provides the options of its own Cisco LMS, as well as collaborating with leading energy management app vendors such as JouleX in providing choices of management platforms. 

With JouleX EnergyManager (JEM) supporting Cisco EnergyWise, the JouleX and Cisco EnergyWise solution breaks energy management silos and helps to optimize and reduce energy consumption across the enterprise from the core to the edge. Whether you want to improve energy efficiency in the data center, manage energy usage across facilities and distributed office environments, or automate corporate sustainability reporting, our combined solution can help.
