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 […]
The Importance of the Network in Detecting Incidents in Critical Infrastructure
As we saw in my last blog the network plays a key role in defending critical infrastructure and IoT. The devices that we are connecting drive our business, enabling us to make smarter decisions and gain greater efficiency through digitization. But how do we ensure the connected devices are acting as intended?
History of the IoT (Part 2): How IoT transitioned from the past to the future
The Internet of Things (IoT) is all around us. But where did it all begin? Join us as we get a first hand account of the History of the IoT (3 part series).
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.
The Future of Healthcare
Optimized care, wearable devices, improved clinical communications and security. The future of healthcare looks bright. What does it mean for you?
Techno-Conservation: Converging on a Modular Reference Architecture
Techno-Conservation, a new coined term that establishes an intersection between technology and conservation, is also a purpose-led action that strengthen our shared values on how we make a sustainable impact. Cisco's innovation programs, resources and technology aim to combine a multidisciplinary approach in applying technology towards solving the biggest challenges affecting our planet and all its inhabitants, by co-innovating and creating an effective technology that protects our ecosystems and species.
