Cisco Embedded Service 2020 Series Switches

Cisco Embedded Service 2020 Series Switches

Cisco Embedded Service 2020 Series Switches can collect data from remote locations for real-time analysis by experts located at a remote site, where the environment may be harsh or at a headquarters.. They can also help monitor the transit of vehicles and equipment to remote sites. Connected sensors can monitor the condition of the vehicles, cargo, or crew, and convey this information to remote data centers or to other vehicles.
