The MIG-2450 is a gateway specifically designed for transportation solutions in environments such as buses, trains and planes.

Now, Cisco is focusing on the Internet of Things and delivering more than a dozen new IoT-focused products and a handful of services for channel partners. IoT can do many things for industries.

The IoT is transforming the mass transportation industry. With smart, connected devices, transit companies can monitor hundreds of details about vehicles, tracks, environmental conditions, and much more. IoT technology can also help businesses deliver the value-add services passengers are beginning to expect, such as onboard Wi-Fi.

The challenge for today’s transportation companies is to find secure, efficient ways to put this IoT technology to work. Connecting devices and endpoints across a complex, wide-ranging transportation network can take a lot of time and resources.

Cisco designed the Cisco Mobile IP Gateway 2450 to help simplify these tasks.

The MIG-2450 is a mobile connectivity gateway that delivers high availability communications between central offices, trackside operators, and transit vehicles by integrating GPS, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and mobile broadband modems.

The MIG-2450 helps you comply with safety and interoperability regulations. It also gives you a way to collect and analyze data without the need for yet another piece of hardware to fit onboard a vehicle. And its modular design provides powerful connectivity for the services and applications that enhance the transportation experience for passengers and workers alike.

Cisco IoT---Securely and Reliably Connect All Areas of Your Business

Cisco IoT---Securely and Reliably Connect All Areas of Your Business

Cisco fleshed out its Internet of things system, and product line in early June this year.

IoT, the Internet of Things, is one of the most profound transitions in technology today.

The Cisco IoT System is a comprehensive set of technologies and products for enterprises to help accelerate the transition to an intelligent, IoT-based infrastructure. This broad portfolio of infrastructure technologies and products can enable customers to connect, manage, and control previously unconnected devices.

Gain deeper insights with analytics on IoT data. Better secure your physical and digital assets and data. And innovate by creating and deploying IoT applications from the cloud to the fog.

Cisco IoT System can enable industries such as manufacturing, energy, transportation, public safety, and smart cities to deploy and accelerate IoT solutions.

In San Francisco, an integrated, Internet of Things (IoT)-based network with parking, garage, and roadway sensors reduced parking search time by 43 percent. And parking citations dropped by 23 percent.

On the Aegean Motorway in Greece, IoT sensors deliver real-time traffic and weather information, speeding emergency response and improving safety and travel time.

The Internet of Things is driving efficiencies and innovation in industries ranging from energy and utilities to manufacturing, public safety, and transportation. But to realize the potential of IoT, you need reliable, high-quality, high-speed network connections to collect and transmit data from a multitude of deployed devices.

The Cisco industrial router portfolio includes a range of compact, ruggedized modular platforms on which you can build a highly secure, reliable, and scalable communications infrastructure. These products are certified to meet harsh environmental standards. They support a variety of communications interfaces, such as Ethernet, serial, fiber, cellular, WiFi, Wi-SUN RF mesh, and others.
