Between industrial solutions for today and a sustainable foundation for tomorrow, there’s a bridge.

As the industrial world converges at Hannover Messe 2024, Cisco is not just a participant but a catalyst for change, championing digital transformation and IT / OT collaboration to deliver business outcomes in the manufacturing, energy, and related industrial industries.

I am so excited to return to Hannover, witness the latest trends, and meet with customers and partners. Cisco demos and presentations will showcase our solutions that deliver essential business outcomes to improve uptime, revenue optimization, asset visibility, observability, cyber security, resiliency, and sustainability.

Cisco’s vision is brought to life in part through strategic relationships with leading partners we will feature in our booth, including Accenture, Deloitte, NTT Data, Orange, Rockwell Automation, Schneider Electric, WWT, and others. Together with our partners, we are pioneering solutions that redefine the boundaries of what’s possible.

Manufacturing: The Foundation of Industrial Automation and Industry 4.0

Cisco’s manufacturing practice draws from our four-decade market leadership in IT and nearly two decades of expertise and innovation in the manufacturing industry and Industrial IoT. We address key industry use cases with our range of purpose-built networking, wireless, and security Industrial IoT products that integrate with Cisco’s end-to-end enterprise networking, wireless, security, compute, observability, and collaboration platforms and services, tied together in validated designs and architectures that interoperate with the leading industrial automation systems and protocols.

At Hannover Messe 2024, we’re showcasing our latest innovations that streamline operations and secure industrial networks. Together with our partners, we will demonstrate robust integrated architectures and solutions that are driving the future of smart manufacturing in areas such as digital twin, predictive maintenance, supply chain operations, and industrial mobility. We’re demonstrating how our partnerships are leading to the development of digital solutions that solve complex industry challenges.

And we will showcase the unique capabilities of our recently completed Splunk acquisition to deliver observability, security, data analytics, and AI in manufacturing operations.

Energy: Building a Sustainable Industrial Foundation

Energy generation and industrial production are significant contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions. Cisco has created sustainable facilities solutions for manufacturing and industrial operations, building on our experience in smart and sustainable buildings, energy efficient data center and networking infrastructure, and uPOE+ switching that can deliver 90W of POE per port. We are working with Schneider Electric to deliver smart and sustainable buildings to achieve net-zero carbon and building sustainability goals, manage and reduce energy consumption, among other outcomes.

At Hannover Messe 2024, we’re presenting case studies that highlight our success in revolutionizing sustainable industrial facilities and buildings, energy management, and lower carbon emissions from industrial processes.

Sustainability: Building a Greener Tomorrow

Sustainability is a core value woven into the fabric of Cisco culture. We work with partners to enhance the capabilities of our networking solutions, allowing us to deliver powerful, energy-efficient products that drive sustainability in industrial data centers, enterprise IT environments, and OT production facilities around the world. By connecting industrial devices, machines, and systems through our intelligent networks, we provide greater asset visibility and ability monitor and manage energy consumption and other environmental metrics.

For example, we are working with Rockwell Automation on digital water solutions. Using edge sensing, wireless connectivity, and sensor technology as well as data analytics and machine learning, our solution proactively addresses water loss, significantly decreases the time required for repairs, and helps mitigate energy wasted in pumping lost water.

At Hannover Messe 2024, we will feature discussions and demos around sustainable manufacturing, supply chain, intelligent building solutions, water and wastewater management, and electric vehicle charging systems. And of course, robust industrial and IT / OT cybersecurity is foundational to all our solutions across all industries!

In our conversations with customers at Hannover Messe, Cisco will not merely present technologies; we will narrate a story of collaboration, innovation, and commitment. The partnerships we will feature are more than alliances; they are proof of the power of working together to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.

As visitors explore our booth, they will witness how our combined efforts with these industry leaders are forging a path to a smarter, more productive, more sustainable future. Our advancements in manufacturing, energy, and sustainability are tangible, impactful, and ready to be deployed on a global scale.

We invite you join us on this journey as we build a bridge between industrial solutions for today and a sustainable foundation for tomorrow. Visit Cisco at Hannover Messe 2024 at April 22—26, 2024 | Hannover, Germany | Hall 15, Stand F18.
