Softline and Cisco agreed to help Russian industrialists with the IoT technologies introduction. Softline will be responsible for the projects implementation and Cisco for the development of innovative technologies relating to equipment, IoT architecture, reference design and data protection.
Softline conducts examinations on production efficiency while observing labor protection rules. Cisco provides solutions that will allow creating complex solutions for technologisation.
The main task to be solved is creating all necessary conditions for the business continuity organization. In this regard, no new project should interfere with the work of any company at any stage of industrial IoT implementation.
But it is not easy to deal with this without the necessary experience, since most of the time IoT technology customers reduce costs by saving on consumables, while wanting to boost profitability by increasing production volumes. Because of such demands, the production managing IT infrastructure will suffer serious interventions.
Some of the first Softline and Cisco discoveries are the development of smart helmets infrastructure, which are already expected by many Russian industrial enterprises specialists.
