Leading IT solutions and Managed Services provider invests in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)


Frankfurt am Main, 15 August 2019 – With immediate effect, Logicalis GmbH is taking over the team for Cisco-based solutions and services concerning the Internet of Things (IoT) and Operational Technology (OT) at Hopf Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH, a full service provider in the sectors Industrial Ethernet and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). With the takeover, Logicalis is investing significantly in the digitalisation driver, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The IT solution and Managed Services provider is thereby addressing the increasing fusion of IT and OT, caused by the progressive networking of devices and applications.

This means that clients profit from the advantages of wide-ranging partner support and international expertise.
