Industrial Networking

Companies around the world are adopting new architectures that take advantage of the pervasive connectivity and actionable data provided by the Internet of Things (IoT). They are converging operational technologies (OT) with global IT networks and benefiting from profound productivity improvements, increased uptime and improved overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) as well as new opportunities throughout the business.

With the Cisco Connected Factory portfolio, real-time visibility and business intelligence are well within your reach.

  1. 5Yr Lag Time in IIOT adoption due to Cybersecurity concerns
  2. 30 Billion IoT endpoints by 2020
  3. 95% plan to deploy IoT capabilities in three years

Companies in all sectors are implementing strategies that build connectivity between their machines, processes, people and products. As well as streamlining operations, through the line connectivity can generate organised and analysed data, giving your enterprise actionable operational and customer insights. 

Known as Industry 4.0, these strategies are converging factory-based operational technologies with global IT networks and the Internet of Things (IoT). The benefits are wide-ranging, including increased uptime, faster to market product innovation and improved overall equipment effectiveness.

Wireless connectivity in factories can improve a wide range of operations, including asset tracking, visibility of automation controls, wireless tooling, and pervasive mobile communications and video.

We can provide a 360-degree view of your operations, establish greater connectivity, and support ongoing operations with real-time network diagnostics and troubleshooting. Productivity will increase, operations will be more resilient, and your enterprise will be more flexible and agile in response to changing customer and market expectations. 

Typical challenges where we help our customers:

Rapidly and more securely integrate OT and IT technologies
Build one common, converged, rugged, plant-to business network
Improve operational costs and efficiency.
Find and fix problems faster to improve production uptime and equipment availability
Improve security through control of network access by user and location with identity services
