Cisco Announces New Cisco Internet of Things (IoT) System Provides a Foundation for the Transformation of Industries

Cisco Systems, Inc. estimated that 50 billion devices and objects will be connected to the Internet by 2020. Yet, more than 99% of things in the physical world remain unconnected. To capitalize on the unprecedented opportunities presented by this wave of digitization, companies and cities are increasingly deploying Internet of Things solutions. However, digitization is complex. Customers are often connecting devices and objects - or converging unrelated networks - at previously unprecedented scales. Furthermore, they can only realize the value of these connections through the application of advanced data analytics, and even then, customers often still need to create a new class of intelligent applications capable of accelerating new business models or increasing productivity. Of course, all of this has to happen without ever sacrificing security at any point in the system, from the device to the data center and via the cloud. The new Cisco® IoT System, announced today, addresses the complexity of digitization with an infrastructure that is designed to manage large scale systems of diverse endpoints and platforms, and the data deluge they create. The new Cisco IoT System comprises six critical technology elements or 'pillars' which - when combined together into an architecture - help reduce the complexities of digitization. Cisco also announced 15 new Internet of Things products within the six pillars. The six pillars of the new Cisco IoT System are: Network Connectivity; Fog Computing; Security; Data Analytics; Management and Automation; Application Enablement Platform.
