Cisco Connected Factory for Industry 4.0



The machines that make up the modern factory create more than just components: they also create a lot of data. For plant managers, being able to see and act on this data is key.

To help plant managers tap into that data, Cisco has introduced three new solutions to its Connected Factory portfolio:

  • Time sensitive networking is now supported on the IE4000 Switch family: This is a new standard that protects the data and ensures mission critical applications are running smoothly on the network. They are designed to work with future applications.
  • Connected Asset Manager (CAM) for internet of things (IoT) intelligence: This tool can extract data from a variety of source, and tie together multiple existing data threads in the plant across today's legacy system siloes. It is also an open and analytic-engine agnostic. Reporting is simple-just drag and drop data in a simple interface.
  • Industrial Network Director: Made with operators in mind (not just IT), it gives factories full control of the plant network. User can also set up faster and risk less downtime. Plus, it offers true plug & play functionality. "Install your managed switch and rest assured that the proper security, settings and functionality are set. No manual programming is required," said a company spokesperson.

Cisco Connected Factory solutions provide full visibility with a focus on simplicity, security and enhanced intelligence.
