Build a smart and secure factory, ready for Industry 4.0 manufacturing

Smart manufacturing for the modern age

Harness the potential of Industry 4.0 with advanced IT solutions for OT

Use intelligent Cisco solutions to automate your industrial networks, secure your operations, improve IT and operational technology (OT) collaboration, and make your manufacturing smarter.

Produce more, adapt faster, with ease

Boost manufacturing innovations and efficiency with a resilient, scalable, and flexible industrial network that only Cisco can deliver. 

Build a wireless network that gets it done

Improve flexibility by connecting your vehicles and mobile assets using 5G, ultra-reliable wireless backhaul, or Wi-Fi. Cisco has it all and can help you choose the right wireless technology for your factory.

Protect your operations with your network

Get visibility into assets, enforce segmentation to build ISA/IEC62443 zones and conduits, and obtain zero-trust remote access with a Cisco industrial network that has cybersecurity built in, not bolted on.

Make your operations data work for you

Empower your applications with real-time data from your factory assets. A Cisco industrial network can help you to select, extract, transform, and securely transport data from your factory floor to your multicloud.

Get more productivity with less downtime. And get better cross-team collaboration.
