JouleX has announced that the JouleX Energy Manager (JEM) solution supports features in Cisco EnergyWise. JEM for EnergyWise, available now, will help companies optimize energy usage. As part of an agreement with Cisco, JouleX is providing evaluation copies of JEM for EnergyWise to customers at no charge.

Cisco EnergyWise extends energy monitoring and management from the network core to the edge. JouleX helps visualize this solution across every device connected to the network -- taking energy management beyond the switch ports and traditional PCs.

JEM for EnergyWise supports Cisco advanced features such as a deep-sleep VoIP function, power capping for the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), and support for Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Plus and Virtual Desktop infrastructure. It also provides monitoring, analysis, and control for Cisco EnergyWise-enabled devices and systems -- with no client-side agents or hardware meters required.

JEM for EnergyWise integrates with Cisco EnergyWise's 10 power levels for configuration, reporting, and policies. An installation wizard utilizes existing Cisco EnergyWise credentials to automate and streamline configuration. The solution also includes Cisco EnergyWise-specific reporting.

JEM for EnergyWise is available with a free 90-day evaluation period covering up to 250 devices. For more information, visit www.joulex.net.
