Cisco, the leading global IT provider, helps companies seize tomorrow’s business opportunities today. Incomparable possibilities emerge with the networking of people, processes, data and things. Today networks are an important technological component of business and everyday life.
The Cisco products developed on the basis of the Internet Protocol (IP) are the foundation of this network and have turned the company into the leading global provider of network solutions for the Internet.
Even today, about 15 billion things are linked to the Internet – but that is only about 1percent of what’s possible. Cisco is committed to the further networking of people, processes, data and things. Here it is talking about the “Internet of Everything.”
For the auto industry, the Internet of Everything is opening up nearly boundless possibilities: Through the interplay of the Internet with people, processes, data and vehicles, you can optimize processes and use resources more efficiently than in the past, creating advantages over your competitors.
In the auto industry, Cisco is focusing on six areas: core networking, Cisco video and collaboration, access (wired and mobile), security, unified data center, the cloud and services. Cisco has two market segments worldwide: enterprise (large companies, small and medium-size companies and public agencies) and service providers.
In the enterprise area, there is a major emphasis on the overall auto industry in the areas of the connected car, connected manufacturing and connected spaces. At the same time, Cisco is also relying on indirect sales with its approximately 2,500 certified partners in Germany.
