Cisco announced two new cloud-managed IoT sensor solutions that help businesses simplify asset and facility monitoring across their organizations, from indoor IT closets to outdoor Operation Technology (OT) spaces at scale.
Remote monitoring using IoT sensors offers a list of benefits to help improve efficiencies, including employee safety, by preventing unnecessary site visits and equipment checks, reducing network outages and downtime and reducing costs for premature equipment failure.
Cisco is introducing two IoT sensor solutions designed to simplify installs, offering enhanced security and scale:
Meraki MT sensors monitor indoor environments and IT infrastructure. Three models of cloud-managed devices - MT10, MT12 and MT20 - provide real-time data on indoor temperature, humidity, water leaks and property/room access.
Industrial Asset Vision sensors monitor OT assets and facilities in outdoor and industrial indoor spaces. Bundled in a new cloud-based management dashboard that fosters actionable visibility from the sensors to the network, the IP65 and IP67 rated sensors are pre-integrated with the Cisco LoRaWAN IoT Gateway and provide insight for equipment and facilities temperature, humidity, vibration monitoring and lighting levels.
Customers across a range of industries, including utilities, oil and gas, education, healthcare, manufacturing and retail, have already deployed these solutions to improve their day-to-day operations.
