Cisco UPOE and EnergyWise at Interop Las Vegas 2012
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.
I also covered the business benefits of Cisco UPOE during a short presentation at the show. . See how you can save more than a quarter million dollars for a 1,000-port deployment with Cisco UPOE and EnergyWise.
What are some of the ways you are controlling your energy costs? Do you think Cisco EnergyWise can help you deliver intelligent energy management to the campus IT infrastructure?
