Validated Architecture Design

Converged Plant-wide Ethernet Design

For plants to become information-driven, they need a strong foundation of a single industrial network architecture. It is crucial to send data to the right place, at the right time, and in the right context. A network infrastructure that is built on standard Ethernet and IP enables the flow of data across your global enterprise. Accelerate network convergence with design guidance and best practices to deploy scalable, robust, secure, safe, and future-ready industrial network architectures.

Workforce Training and Education

Empower Your IT and OT Teams

The convergence of OT and IT demands new expertise to design and maintain complex network infrastructures. These new designs are necessary to take advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT). You can achieve this knowledge with industrial networking courses and certification. Cisco and Rockwell Automation use expertise from each company to provide educational resources and services necessary to bridge skills gaps within your workforce.
