11 Jun Alleantia and Cisco announce to Cisco Live 2019! an IoT Revolution
Alleantia is one of the three companies in the world that have successfully completed Cisco Solution Partners interoperability tests and obtained IVT certification, Interoperability Verification Testing. The new has been announced directly by Cisco during the Cisco Live! event in San Diego. It’s an extraordinary result and a certification that is a global declaration of safety and reliability, but in the case of Alleantia it also means something more.
Alleantia, internationally known for its software Industry 4.0 solutions and for the digital interconnection of industries, started its collaboration with the American giant a year ago thanks to “Digitaliani”, the Cisco program for the acceleration of digitalization processes of Italian industries and worked hard in the past months, together with the Cisco DevNet team, to an integration that represents a revolutionary result for the IoT industry.
The interoperability tests with IOx that Alleantia‘s industrial IoT application has successfully completed were conducted as part of the new interoperability testing program conduced by Cisco DevNet for IOx applications, the computing infrastructure distributed on Cisco network equipment to ensure industrial security.
The integration between the Alleantia ISC software and the Cisco IOx operating system, currently running on some of the most popular Cisco network devices such as CGR 1120 Router and Switch Catalyst 9000 series, promises to revolutionize the Industry 4.0 sector by transforming the data normally carried by Cisco devices in valuable information and to make them intelligible and usable in real time by cloud and enterprise applications.
This innovation allows, for the first time in history, to complete these operations without using any additional hardware, avoiding all costs related to its installation and use, making the approach to the IoT world and Industry 4.0 even easier and plug & play. To support the integrators who want to approach this new technology, a sandbox is available for free on the Cisco DevNet cloud. (https://developer.cisco.com)
Thanks to this exceptional and revolutionary interoperability, Alleantia’s edge software will simply work as an app. After being downloaded from Cisco Marketplace and installed on Cisco devices, the Alleantia software will enable them to transform the flow of data into relevant information and to prepare them to be read and used by all business applications and cloud platforms.
“We couldn’t be prouder to be one of the first IoT companies to receive Cisco IVT certification in the world. We would like to thank the entire DevNet team for their brilliant support – commented Stefano Linari, Chairman & CEO of Alleantia – not just because it rewards our hard work and industrie’s commitment in the digitalization, but also because it shows how our Alleantia edge software offers to Cisco switches and routers, already known for their exceptional stability and security, a powerful and intuitive access to th industrial IoT world, allowing them to transform any data into relevant information.”
“We firmly believe into Alleantia’s edge software value for Cisco IOx network devices and we are already working to extend this compatibility to as many products as possible – continues Stefano Linari, Chairman & CEO of Alleantia – this will help more and more Cisco customers to have the safer, easier and faster approach ever implemented for their digital transformation and all their Industry 4.0 projects.”
“We are happy to have witnessed together with Alleantia the creation of an integration that will help many companies to realize the benefits of the Industry 4.0 revolution – commented Agostino Santoni, CEO of Cisco Italy – The collaboration with Alleantia is one of the results of excellence of the “Digitaliani” project with which Cisco aims to accelerate the digitalization processes of our country with important initiatives and investments to promote innovation”.
