Philips and Cisco – the best of both worlds

One such example of a game-changing, value-adding collaboration is our alliance with leading IT company Cisco Systems, Inc. This alliance brings together Cisco’s highly secure and robust network infrastructure technology – a key enabler of the Internet of Things – with Philips’ lighting market leadership, value chain-spanning solutions and global presence.

By bringing the Information Technology and Operational Technology domains together, we believe we can accelerate the market adoption of this innovative and meaningful technology to drive significant business benefits for customers.
