Internet of Things (IoT)

Realize the Benefits of the IoT

The IoT can potentially transform nearly every industry to change the way we live and work, locally and globally. Companies in all industries face challenges to build infrastructures that meet the changing requirements of scale and data management, run on standards, and are highly secure and interoperable.

At Cisco, we can connect the unconnected with an open standard, integrated architecture from the cloud to end devices - with exceptional reliability and security.

Why Cisco Is Different

  • We offer new ways to manage and store data in the cloud and data center.
  • We provide industry-specific solutions that can improve productivity and operational efficiency today, while laying the foundation for tomorrow's IoT opportunities.
  • We currently offer solutions for manufacturing, oil and gas, smart cities, mining, utilities, and transportation.

Together with our IoT partner ecosystem, we'll help ensure that you migrate, implement, and manage connectivity of your previously unconnected assets effectively and more securely.
