Cisco has revealed that it will re-launch its industrial networking products in two weeks time, as part of a new IoT push.

The company’s teased a January 28th launch date for a new partner program and products.

A registration page for a pre-launch partner briefing offers a little more information about the company’s push, promising “Cisco innovations from data center and IoT help solve customers’ digital transformation challenges.”

“From on-premises to cloud and out to the edge, the explosion of data and apps that fuel customers’ businesses disrupts IT and strains resources,” the page says, adding that “Cisco Data Center and IoT can help you solve their challenges in a world where there is nothing centered about data anymore.”

The page also promises:

  • New Cisco HyperFlex and Cisco ACI innovations, delivering advanced multicloud and remote site edge capabilities
  • New cross-domain integrations that drive higher levels of automation, security and analytics
  • Cisco’s next generation of industrialised routers and switches, which deliver the same security and intent-based networking capabilities as the Cisco Catalyst family and expand Cisco’s SD-WAN to the operational edge of the network
  • Capabilities such as modularity to help protect customers’ investments in manufacturing facilities, utilities, oil and gas, transportation and more

Cisco’s IoT push appears to be built around the argument that it possesses networking, security and data management assets, but the page also says the company is “just getting started” in the field.
