RIOT Solutions announced today that it has achieved the Advanced Internet of Things Specialisations and Premier Partner Status from Cisco

In the process of building services and capabilities to address the emerging IoT market, last year RIOT Solutions embarked on the Cisco Advanced Internet of Things Specialisation program and this week completed the certifications in IoT Manufacturing and Connected Safety and Security.  This achievement formally recognises RIOT Solutions for designing, reselling, installing, and maintaining video surveillance, access control and automation solutions and demonstrates their capability to connect people and equipment with data for the manufacturing industry.   Using their Cisco products and solution knowledge they address the needs of OT customers and partners to design, configure and integrate complex systems.

Interestingly, the IoT Manufacturing specialisation also includes the Rockwell Automation Industrial Control Curriculum. Together Rockwell Automation and Cisco have developed a training and certificate portfolio that is optimised for each side of the equation, OT and IT, providing the skills that are required to securely converge the network architecture with maximum efficiency and return on investment.

“This serves very well with our focus and company strategy to lead the charge in OT and IT integration projects and together with our Critical Infrastructure Cyber Security services, places us at the fore front of the Connected Enterprise.” stated Managing Director Rob Merkwitza.   “Additionally our consultants and engineers have  completed the theory of Cisco’s 3rd component of the Advanced IoT program – Industry Expert.  This combines our OT experience and Cisco IT networking knowledge in other industries such as energy and utilities, travel and transport and recognises us as an industry leader.”

The Internet of Things

The Cisco Internet of Things (IoT) platform is inspiring a new breed of intelligent applications. Without starting from scratch, businesses can integrate disparate machines, devices and networks with a high degree of security. The connection of devices, machines and things allows you to dynamically generate, analyze, and communicate intelligence data; increase operational efficiencies; and power new and greatly improved business models.
