Building Manufacturing and IT Network Architectures and Products to Address Network Convergence

Strategoc Alliance - Rockwell Automtation and Cisco Systems

Today's manufacturing companies must become more responsive to changing market and operational conditions without sacrificing efficiency. This has created urgency for manufacturers to converge and connect the multitude of isolated production systems and processes throughout their entire value chain. To do that, they need seamless, secure connectivity across the enterprise.

Rockwell Automation and Cisco are committed to being the most valuable resource in the industry for helping manufacturers improve business performance by bridging the technical and cultural gaps between plant-floor and higher-level information systems. Through collaboration on products, services and educational resources, we help manufacturers and machine builders converge and simplify their network architecture and tightly integrate technical and business systems using EtherNet/IP — the world's leading open industrial Ethernet network.
