Bangalore: The networking firm Cisco has acquired privately-held Richards-Zeta Building Intelligence, a provider of intelligent middleware technology that enables businesses to integrate building infrastructure and information technology applications over a common Internet Protocol (IP) network resulting in improved efficiencies, greater energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint.

"Energy consumption is a global issue, and customers are increasingly demanding that energy management services are delivered over a converged IP architecture. An intelligent IP network is the platform to meet this need," said Marthin De Beer, Senior Vice president of Cisco's Emerging Technologies Group.

Richards-Zeta's intelligent middleware transforms building operational data into an IT-friendly format that easily integrates with existing applications. Its scalable, open platform enables the convergence of building systems onto an IP network. This integrated solution provides more effective management of energy consumption across an organization. Richards-Zeta's technologies will support Cisco customer solutions such as Cisco Connected Real Estate and Cisco EnergyWise.
