Power consumption and BTU values for Cisco equipment

Unanswered Question

In our company, we are designing a new datacenter. To define the total electrical and cooling power we need to know the power consumption and the BTU for all our Cisco equipment. Is there a way to find these values within the Cisco website without looking up all the different equipment? I can imagine that there is a tool somewhere where I can choose the hardware and I will get this figures.

Thanks a lot

Hi Guru again.

Just as an input: It would be helpful if there will be all the Cisco equipment (also other switches, routers etc.) listed in the pull down field. Would that be an input for a next release of this tool?

Best regards

HI Markus,

Sorry for the late reply.

The question can be answered only by some CISCO Technical Team involved in Product Development.

Let's see if somebody answer.
