DESCRIPTION
Cisco designs and sells broad lines of products, provides services and delivers integrated solutions to develop and connect networks around the world, building the Internet. Over the last 30 plus years, they have been the world’s leader in connecting people, things and technologies - to each other and to the Internet - realizing their vision of changing the way the world works, lives, plays and learns.

Today, Cisco have over 70,000 employees in over 400 offices worldwide who design, produce, sell, and deliver integrated products, services, and solutions. Over time, they have expanded to new markets that are a natural extension of their core networking business, as the network has become the platform for automating, orchestrating, integrating, and delivering an ever-increasing array of information technology (IT)–based products and services.

Globally, countries, cities, industries and businesses are becoming digital to capitalize on the next wave of the Internet - the Internet of Everything (IoE), which we define as the connection of people, processes, data and things. When people, processes, data and things are connected, we believe it creates an opportunity to deliver better customer experiences, create new revenue streams and operating models to drive efficiency and produce value.

Cisco's goal is to be a strategic partner to our customers by providing the solutions, people, partners and experience as their customers move from traditional to digital businesses. They believe their customers’ journey to becoming digital businesses requires security, cloud, mobile, social and analytic technologies with a strong foundation of an intelligent network that is agile, simple and that provides real time business insight.

The move to digital is driving many of their customers to adopt entirely new IT architectures and organization structures. In their view, Cisco are delivering the architectural approach and solution-based results to help them reduce complexity, accelerate and grow, and manage risk in a world that is increasingly virtualized, application centric, cloud-based, analytics-driven, and mobile.

IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates a vendor's relative focus on hardware, software and services.
Hardware
Processors provide the intelligence behind IoT systems and are often integrated into system-on-a-chip designs.
Hardware that enables dual directional communication for data collection and control message delivery. Examples include cellular, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi.
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
Middleware integrates the diverse components of an IoT application by structuring communication, workflows, and business rules.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Data management solutions capture, index and store data in traditional database, cloud platforms, and fog systems for future use.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
Examples of business consulting services include go-to-market design and execution, business model development, channel development, and corporate M&A.
