Why Cisco for Manufacturing?

Why Cisco for Manufacturing?

The top 6 reasons manufacturers turn to Cisco

We’re a trusted leader in industrial networking.

According to IDC, 75 percent of large manufacturers will update operations with Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and analytics by 2019.* With this widespread adoption of IIoT, the need for a best-in-class networking foundation is greater than ever before. Cisco’s leadership in intuitive networks, as well as easy-to-use management tools, can streamline your operations and reduce downtime and costs. In fact, Cisco was recently named number one in market share for industrial managed switches.** We support the top Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) protocols, such as Ethernet IP, Profinet, and CC-Link.
