What do the new Cisco IOx application can do for you? And what kind of customers need the Cisco IOx?
Some key words for Cisco IOx here: Harness IoT Data, Deliver Insight, Drive Digital Business Forward
The Cisco IoT portfolio integrates the essential IoT elements required for customer success. IOx combines IoT application execution within the fog, secure connectivity with Cisco IOS Software, and powerful services for rapid, reliable integration with IoT sensors and the cloud.
By bringing application execution capability to the source of IoT data, customers overcome challenges with high volumes of data and the need for automated, near real-time system responsiveness.
Cisco IOx Application Framework
Fog applications offer customers and ecosystem partners the ability to transform IoT sensor data and perform control functions within the distributed network infrastructure. With the support of IOx resident on routers, switches, and compute modules, the distributed IoT network functions as the compute environment for fog applications. With the secure connectivity services and common application framework offered by IOx and fog applications, customers have delivered business outcomes rapidly with their IoT initiatives.
Examples across industry include:
- Manufacturing companies connect machines, transform sensor data, and perform real-time analytics to predict when maintenance is necessary and increase overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
- Mobile network operators manage their cell tower assets remotely. With real-time insight from fog applications, they ensure proper operation, prevent theft, and save money.
- Utilities drive up grid reliability using fog applications to transform SCADA data into real-time insight and control.
