Cisco Partners with Int'l University on Environmental Tech Offerings; Nitin Kawale Comments

CiscoLogoCisco Systems Inc. and the University of British Columbia are partnering to develop and commercialize new capabilities intended to lower the energy consumption of campus buildings.

Serving as a Living Lab Initiative, UBC will work with Cisco to integrate environmental controls, security, lighting, energy, video, fire and safety across UBC’s campus in Vancouver, Canada using the smart energy system, Cisco said Monday.

Cisco plans to invest $1 million in projects over the five-year collaboration to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and carbon costs.

“The work done by Cisco and UBC on campus will enable vital energy-saving solutions for the university and also serve as a roadmap for future smart energy and smart community initiatives not only in Canada, but around the world,” said Nitin Kawale, president of Cisco Canada.

UBC will combine its capabilities with Cisco’s Smart+Connected communities, Smart+Connected real estate and energy management solutions, Cisco said.

The company will team up with manufacturers to develop automated devices using Cisco’s universal power over ethernet and EnergyWise software development kits for the buildings.

Cisco and UBC plan to demonstrate and test the integrated network offerings.
