Cisco Greens IP

Cisco is looking at ways to help its customers go green and has announced its first major product aimed at reducing the "vampire power" drawn by electrical devices even when they are not in use.

The EnergyWise architecture is a free software upgrade for Cisco's Catalyst line of network switches that allows businesses to monitor and control the energy consumption of various network devices, including IP phones, video cameras, and wireless access points. Using EnergyWise companies can automatically turn off or reduce power to their digital devices.

The company also plans to extend EnergyWise to reduce energy usage of other types of products such as personal computers and printers and, eventually, to control energy use by other devices throughout a building, including heating and lighting.
