Panduit and Rockwell Automation form strategic alliance

Rockwell Automation and Panduit have expanded their Encompass product-referencing relationship and have formed a strategic alliance.

The two companies are partnering to drive integrated solutions that help companies reduce risk, improve reliability, and implement EtherNet/IP solutions and architectures.

They will provide optimised physical network infrastructure solutions, collaboration between automation and IT, and integrated solutions and services for customers globally.

Panduit and Rockwell Automation also plan to work with companies, like Cisco, to help customers seamlessly integrate logical architectures to physical deployment from initial design, maintenance and operations throughout the entire enterprise.

“A strong alignment of Panduit and Rockwell Automation technologies and architectures simplifies network design and integration for our common customers,” said Tom Donovan, president, Panduit. “Our combined capabilities reduce risk, operational costs, and time-to-market.”

“Our mutual customers need a robust, secure and future-ready Ethernet physical infrastructure for their industrial environments,” said John McDermott, senior vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, Rockwell Automation.

“Together, we can now offer comprehensive logical to physical plantwide infrastructure solutions and architectures leveraging EtherNet/IP to provide the level of performance, manageability and security required for today’s industrial networks.”

Initial emphasis of the collaboration will be placed on integration of physical implementation, employing best practices and industry standards, providing education and services to facilitate manufacturing and IT convergence, and enabling successful architecture deployment.

Panduit is a developer and provider of solutions that connect, manage and automate the physical infrastructure.
