Internet of Things (IoT)
A tale of a modern city
Working with cities across the world, we’ve started to notice a familiar pattern of challenges and we believe we’ve come up with a solution and unique innovations to address these. So, in the story below I’d like to share the perspective of a typical municipal leader who’s facing these challenges and how Cisco can help. […]
Unpacking IoT, a series: The complexity challenge and what you can do about it
In my previous two blog posts, I explained how Cisco addresses the security and scalability challenges associated with an Internet of Things (IoT) deployment. In this post, I cover the final of the top three challenges: complexity. For an IoT initiative to be successful, the deployment and management of connected devices must be made simplified. […]
How IoT is addressing security threats in oil and gas
It isn’t hard to imagine the havoc a physical attack on an Oil and Gas operation. In oil and gas, it’s people’s lives and the environment itself that are at stake. Learn morfe about our IoT security offerings.
Unpacking IoT, a series: The scalability challenge and what you can do about it
The Internet of Things (IoT) presents a number of challenges for network engineers. In my previous post, I explained how Cisco is helping to address the biggest IoT challenge by far: security. In this post, we’ll cover the next challenge: scalability.
Cisco and Honeywell team up to deliver wireless capabilities to hazardous environments
When we talk to our customers, one of the biggest challenges they face is keeping their employees safe. For example, workers often need to enter the most dangerous corners of oil refineries and other traditionally hazardous locations to perform manual tasks, such as taking meter readings from equipment. This can put them at risk of […]
Smart Cities: Accelerating the Path to Digital Transformation
Cities around the world face rapid urbanization, economic constraints, and environmental concerns. To address these challenges, city administrators are turning to technology, especially the Internet of Things (IoT), to digitize city operations. Unfortunately, smart city technologies pose significant challenges of their own.
Manufacturing: Secure networks to cell/area zone
Strictly speaking, threats to manufacturers’ security isn’t a new phenomenon. For several years, factories have fallen prey to security breaches – experiencing everything from brief production disruptions to significant business impacts. Known incidents in 2017 cost manufacturers more than $10 billion in reported losses. Not surprisingly, security has emerged as a board-level concern for nearly […]
Unpacking IoT, a series: The security challenge and what you can do about it
Network engineers face a number of challenges when deploying Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives. Come back to the Cisco IoT blog over the next few weeks as we dive into the top three IoT challenges, and best practices for conquering them.
Can manufacturing go wireless in a 5G/Wi-Fi 6 world?
With the recent availability of Wi-Fi 6 solutions, the launch of 5G pilot projects and new shared license spectrum policies, many are wondering: Can manufacturing go further down the wireless path?
