Developing a new angle on an established relationship

Over the past few years, Cisco and Intel’s collaboration has extended into the realm of Internet of Things, allowing the strength of each organization to bring the industry as a whole, forward. In the Internet of Things, devices need applications, analytics, network connectivity, security, storage, and computing power.  The partnership of Cisco and Intel offers comprehensive solutions working alongside several ecosystem partners.

Recently, during Cisco Live in San Diego, CA, we jointly showcased innovative IoT solutions and highlighted our collaboration on NFV:

  • A smart city demonstration, featuring Legos and Fog Computing, was on display in the Intel booth showing how easy it is for cities to implement IoT solutionsLego Smart City
  • Carlos Morales presented a captivating “Pre-Zen-tation” on Fog Computing, elaborating on how companies can extend the cloud to the edge
  • A highlight during the show was partaking in a #CiscoChat with Brad Haczynski, Intel’s Global Account Director, Sales and Marketing Group, encompassed around making IoT and IoE tangible with the power of collaboration. brad and jaishree

Cisco & Intel Together Making IoT and IoE Real

Additionally, Cisco, Intel, AdvanTech, and Wind River partnered with openBerlin, a Cisco IoE Innovation Center, to conduct a rapid prototyping session to solve a transportation customer’s needs. (

What to look forward to during IDF

Fresh off our Cisco Live success showcasing Fog computing, we are excited to participate in this year’s Intel Developer Forum.

In collaboration with Intel, Cisco will be featuring a demo of its 829 Router for Fog Computing, allowing attendees to get up close with one of the pillars of Webcast: Cisco IoT System, data at the edge. Fog computing enables fast, secure, and intelligent decision making at the edge, with applications running from fog to the cloud. The Cisco Fog Computing portfolio comprises an array of edge network devices with integrated compute, network, and storage to meet the needs of IoT verticals such as Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Utilities, Transportation, Mining, and Public Sector.

In-Booth Demo


  • An important part of Cisco’s demonstrations while exhibiting at IDF will be talking about our exceptional developer program. The DevNet website, APIs and tools will all be on show in the booth, and developers can even get coding in the online Learning Labs and testing in the online Sandbox.

Technical Talks

  • Cisco’s Paul Quinn and Intel’s Dan Daly and Uri Elzur have two sessions discussing our joint work in the area of Service Function Chaining (SFC) using a new, open protocol, Network Service Header (NSH), and its applicability  to NFV deployments.   As part of the sessions, they will cover the overall SFC architecture, IETF protocol standardization and Intel’s 100Gb Ethernet NSH support on Intel’s Open Network Platform.
    • August 18 1:00PM – 3:00PM; INFC002 – Tech Chat: 100Gb Ethernet Service Function Chaining on the Intel Open Network; Level 2 Tech Chat Station 8
    • August 20 2:15PM – 3:15PM; NFS012 – Better Together: Service Function Chaining and the Road to 100Gb Ethernet; Level 2 Room 2002

  1. Great Blog, Great things to come

  2. I didn’t pay too much attention on the collaboration between Cisco and Intel, but I do notice this article highlight one technology – Fog Computing. We have experienced end device computing and cloud computing, they give us benefits from two different edge. Fog Computing will make a good balance, so it will be a new edge of IoE.

    The article also mentioned DevNet, it’s really a good place to learn IoE. Thanks Cisco.

  3. Cisco blogs provide a wealth of information for developing business cases for Iot initiative.

  4. Great blog! Cisco are a wonderful company with great people to work with. As Mark says, great things are coming!

  5. Great update! Great partnership! Great things coming in FY16!
