Cisco, 1E to Integrate IT and Building Management

Cisco and 1E have signed a partnership agreement to integrate their energy consumption software, according to news reports.

Business Green reported that 1E is producing a version of its NightWatchman application that integrates with Cisco’s EnergyWise platform, allowing users to track the energy use of their IT infrastructure as well as of buildings.

The integrated platform will also include power management features found in NightWatchman Enterprise and NightWatchman Server. These automatically turn off PCs left on overnight, as well as servers that are not being used.

“Cisco has an excellent chance of solving the huge challenge of all these IT devices speaking different languages when they report their energy use,” 1E product manager Andy Hawkins  told BusinessGreen. “What Cisco has figured out is that the common point for all the different devices is that they have to connect to the network and that is where EnergyWise can capture all the data.”

One thought on “Cisco, 1E to Integrate IT and Building Management

  1. We congratulate Cisco and 1E for bringing such an innovative solution to those in the business computing eco-system who are not able to use the off switch on the ICT assets. Such an automated power management tool can lead to enormous energy savings as has been identified by The Green Grid.

    We do recommend that those who can, should indeed use the off switch.
