Cisco ENergyWise

Unanswered Question
Dec 17th, 2009


I want to configure Cisco EnergyWise on my network. I have PCs, IP phones and Cisco APs. I get tested and managing the APs and IP phones because are PoE devices, but not the PCs, I've read that requires additional software that will be available later this year 2009, this software would be sufficient to get the port to which is connected a PC is put shutdown? anyone know if this software is available?

Thanks y advance.

I have this problem too.

CiscoWorks LMS now has support for provisioning and monitor EngergyWise.  You will need LMS 3.2 with the EnergyWise patches for Resource Manager Essentials and the Health and Utilization Monitor.  You can download a 90-day eval of LMS 3.2 from .  Once installed, go to Common Services > Software Center > Software Update to download the HUM 1.2.1 and RME 4.3.1 updates.

thanks for the reply, but I don't have LMS ...
in the tests I made I could lower the power of the APs and IP phones but have not succeeded in controlling the energy of the laptops. I read that I have to install software on PCs (Tivoli?) is that right? is this software available?

The link I provided will give you a 90-day free, fully-functioning copy of LMS to evaluate.  I do not know of any currently available end point software that makes use of the EnergyWise SDK which would allow such end points to participate in an EW domain.  However, we do have a partnership with IBM for managing EW with Tivoli.  The FAQ is available at .

Errrr ... "controlling the energy of the laptops"???  EnergyWise can't do this.
