Achieving Sustainability Goals with IoT

Networking Experiences Issue #3

The Voice of Experience

If you look inside sustainability across industries, you might be surprised to find IoT technologies delivering results in many layers of the physical and digital world. One of our top goals is helping organizations deploy IoT networking solutions that help drive sustainability. Take for example, Energybox that uses IoT to optimize their customers’ energy usage through remote monitoring, management, and control of systems like HVAC and lighting. Or manufacturing giants like GM where Cisco IoT networking technology is helping them achieve their vision of zero emissions, zero crashes, and zero congestion as they speed innovations in electric and autonomous vehicles.

We all know that energy is vital to the world and at the heart of sustainability efforts. Since Renewable Energy has more variability—wind and solar farms and bi-directional power—to meet these challenges we are helping utilities modernize. Roadways are a critical infrastructure for global industry, but they are also a large source of carbon emissions. Using IoT for smarter roadways is just one way to manage the environmental impacts of roadways and intersections.

IoT is touching our lives in surprising ways, so providing security, networking, and wireless tech to empower organizations to attain the goal of environmental stewardship and sustainability is key to Cisco’s mission. This issue of Networking Experiences provides more in-depth resources on IoT and sustainability for your consideration. Enjoy the experience.

Deliver measurable sustainability results with IoT, cloud networking, and data.

Get Smart with a Sustainable Data Center

Collin Averill, Solutions Marketing Messaging Leader, Hybrid Work and Smart Spaces

How a smart spaces approach can lower costs and your carbon footprint for a more sustainable data center.

White Paper: Six Ways for IT Leaders to Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

Mapping the Way to a More Connected Community

Kelly Broadhurst, Integrated Marketing Manager, Public Sector

IoT devices keep communities agile by providing solutions for various security, safety, and visibility issues—all while collecting data to plan and navigate better, smarter responses. With new federal funding available, public sector organizations have the opportunity to scale up infrastructure-related IoT systems, including ones connected with municipal utilities.

Modernizing your Manufacturing with IIoT

Jordan Noonan, Marketing Manager, Solutions Activation

With more factories embracing IIoT, everything from robots to forklifts to tooling carts are being connected to networks. Learn how this connectivity centralizes control, increases visibility, and leverages analytics to improve efficiency, reduce downtime, and make smarter predictions.

Four Must-Haves in the New Digital Substation

Paul Didier, Solutions Architect Manager, Industries Product Group

The New Digital Substation handles more sustainable, distributed, and variable energy supplies as well as fluctuating demand in real time. Learn what it will take to evolve substations to address operational, customer service, cost efficiency, and sustainability goals.

Achieving Low Latency in Wireless and IIoT Networks Requires an End-to-End Focus

Pradeep Kathail, CTO, Chief Network Architect, Catalyst Engineering

Latency is a function of the proper network design. Radio latency must be considered alongside end-to-end IP latency and round-trip delay. The closer applications are located to where data is being processed in data centers, clouds, or for IoT at the network edge, the lower the possible latency.

White paper: Architecting for End-to-End Low Latency in Wireless Networks

Achieving low latency in wireless networking requires a focus on end-to-end IP traffic ― from the device all the way to the application, wherever its location in the data center or cloud provider and back. This white paper explores how low latency can be achieved in different wireless applications in private 5G, Wi-Fi, and Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul deployments.

White paper: Choose Wireless That Is Best-Fit and Not Force-Fit for Your Industrial Network

In this white paper, learn how to choose the wireless technology best suited for use cases—in manufacturing, ports and terminals, connected rail, mining, energy, and connected smart communities—without making compromises on IP networking, cybersecurity, automation, and performance.
