Cisco Intros New Switches, Router for IoT Environments

Cisco has introduced its Catalyst IE3x00 Rugged Series of switches, as well as its IR1101 Integrated Services Router (ISR). These products include support for Cisco's IOS XE operating system and include:

• New IoT networking platforms: The new Catalyst industrial switches and routers are built for IoT environments and are powered by IOS XE, an operating system that powers intent-based networking. The new platforms are managed by Cisco DNA Center, which provides a single view across a campus, branch or IoT environment.

• IoT developer tools: Cisco's developer program, DevNet, features tools to enable customers and partners to innovate at the IoT edge. Ecosystem partners can build and manage applications at the edge, providing flexibility for customers. The new IoT Developer Center comes with learning materials, developer tools and support resources for partners to begin building solutions and applications.

• Blueprints for utilities, manufacturers, and remote and mobile assets: Working with industry partners, Cisco has created three new blueprints for IoT architectures, known as Cisco Validated Designs, to enable customers and partners to accelerate from proofs-of-concept to scaled deployments

• IoT partner training: Cisco has built a global ecosystem of IoT partners by providing training and specialization programs. This ecosystem includes ISVs, machine builders and service providers, serving the manufacturing, transportation, energy, retail and public sectors.

"In IoT, the conversation is about business outcomes. It starts with secure connectivity as the foundation of every IoT deployment. By providing scale, flexibility and security, we're turning the network into a secret weapon for our IoT customers," said Liz Centoni, Cisco's senior VP and general manager for the IoT, in a prepared statement. "And, with a new DevNet IoT developer center, we're empowering thousands of partners and developers around the world to build upon our IoT platform."
