Cisco EnergyWise has a management interface that allow facilities and network management applications to communicate with endpoints and each other using the network as a unifying fabric. The management interface uses standard SNMP or SSL to integrate Cisco and third-party management systems. (Adapted from Cisco EnergyWise)
