The company's Digital Building Switch series powers the lights and collects data from them

Those kinds of information, in turn, help operations people make the building more efficient and potentially more pleasant for those inside.

This also makes Cisco an integral part of a building’s infrastructure, potentially even more entrenched than the Cisco data networks in most enterprises’ wiring closets. But it doesn’t mean you need a network engineer just to get all the building parts connected and powered. There’s a smartphone app for that, which talks to the switch over Bluetooth.

“Without knowing networking, you can select what you’re trying to do , and you can test out that you’ve installed everything correctly,” Gupta said.
