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 […]
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?
How 5G/Wi-Fi 6 will transform multi-access networks in industrial IoT
For industrial IoT to work, organizations will need to scale their IoT deployments with multi-access networks that take advantage of both private LTE, 5G and Wi-Fi 6 technologies.
Cisco empowers IT & OT partners to create and grow their IoT business
Going into Cisco’s Partner Summit, one thing’s for certain: Cisco IoT offers a great opportunity for partners to build profitable, growing practices. Customers are realizing improved efficiencies, reduced costs and downtime.
Helping partners integrate Cisco IoT products: Cisco IoT Design-In Program
Now more than ever, integrators, equipment builders and industrial control system vendors are building IoT into their products and solution to offer new services and more value to their customers.
