Telit and Cisco have partnered in a multi-faceted go-to-market collaboration that expands their market reach and readiness for their respective products and services.
Telit has announced that its deviceWISE Asset Gateway Software has been validated on Cisco’s IOx-enabled edge computing gateways, namely, Cisco ISR809/829 Industrial Integrated Services Routers and Cisco IE4000 Industrial Ethernet Switches and the software is now available as an integrated Cloud-ready industrial IoT solution. These highly-secure and ruggedized Industry 4.0 appliances provide edge intelligence for industrial asset management, condition-based monitoring, predictive maintenance and other mission-critical IoT applications across industrial markets around the world. The deviceWISE Asset Gateway software is a smart agent with an extensive industrial protocol library based on decades of development and experience in the industrial automation space.
“Telit edge software on Cisco IoT Gateways enables customers and partners to access machine data with a broad range connectors for manufacturing and industrial deployments. Cisco has a rich portfolio of industry specific IoT gateways with security, scale, compliance, that offer 4G LTE, Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity options and management to enable customer success for operational deployments. Now, customers have the flexibility to choose the most optimal IoT gateways, with Telit edge software, management and SI partners to deploy Connected Machine use-cases with confidence,” said Vikas Butaney, General Manager, Cisco IoT Connectivity.
Cisco IoT Gateways with deviceWISE give enterprises highly flexible and scalable deployment options. Companies can opt to install the Cisco hardware with deviceWISE as a secure and rugged industrial automation solution within the four walls of a factory. In addition, deviceWISE gateways can seamlessly connect to the Telit IoT Portal, an enterprise-grade Cloud service (powered by the deviceWISE IoT Platform) for Industry 4.0 applications, such as real-time remote monitoring and control and predictive maintenance. This Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) features a low cost pay-as-you-go service plan and lets you get started without any upfront investment, which lowers barrier to entry for complex solutions. deviceWISE eliminates any custom development with intuitive click-to-configure tools that significantly reduce deployment time, risk, cost and complexity for companies large and small. The Cisco/Telit combined offering also seamlessly integrates with deviceWISE-powered IoT services from leading Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), as well as our on-premise installations offered by SAP to large enterprise customers.
“We are very pleased to collaborate with Cisco on their Internet of Things initiatives and to work together on expanding the market reach for both companies in the high-growth industrial IoT market,” said Charlie McNiff, VP deviceWISE Business Development, Telit IoT Platforms. “Adding Cisco to our expanding ecosystem of Telit IoT partners is an advantage for the industry and our common customers.”
