Communications de l'entreprise
Le site de Stuttgart, en Allemagne, est le premier d'une série de cinq qui ouvriront au cours des 12 prochains mois.


St. Louis, Missouri - Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a leading global supplier of specialty networking solutions, has opened the company's first of five planned Customer Innovation Centers (CIC) in Stuttgart, Germany. The center provides an ecosystem for Belden customers to co-innovate with sales and product engineers to develop, test, document, and deploy proven solutions that drive efficiency, security and innovation.

Le modèle CIC de Belden a été développé pour répondre à des objectifs et des résultats commerciaux clés qui englobent divers domaines d'activité des clients. Il s'agit notamment de la sécurité, de l'automatisation, de la qualité et de la productivité, tous testés pour simuler les défis et les facteurs de stress auxquels un réseau peut être confronté. A team of Belden technologists and application experts work together to accelerate the design and implementation of future-ready networks. Teams consist of Digital Automation Consultants who study customers' existing networks to recommend opportunities for enhanced digitization and data flow management, Solutions Consultants who work with customers as architects of the network, and Service Engineers who provide implementation and post-sales support.

The CIC program is led by Vinod Rana, an 11-year Belden veteran, who will oversee the initiative from Belden's Silicon Valley office. Four additional CICs are planned for the next 12-15 months, and will be located in Silicon Valley (Santa Clara), USA; Pune, India; Chicago, USA; and Shanghai, China.

"Belden CICs shift away from a focus on product, and instead, dedicate the work towards developing solutions for customers in a product-agnostic manner," said Dr. Ashish Chand, Executive Vice President, Industrial Automation. "Working collaboratively within the CIC, we can quickly identify a solution, test it against stressors a network may face, and document how it performs and how it will positively impact the business. These solutions not only support our customers to reach their goals, but also inform next-generation product design."

According to Chand, the CIC model is completely unique to Belden and is a reflection of the company’s commitment to operate among the leaders in the world’s transformation to Industry 4.0.

To date, the Belden Stuttgart CIC team has worked with leading companies in the industrial environment providing best-in-class consulting to transform ideas into solutions and technical support, empowering them to feel secure and maintain focus on their business objectives.

The Belden CIC, by joining hands with third-party software and application partners, is taking a step further in providing a complete solution to its customers and enabling their digital transformation journey.

"Within the CIC, it's not just about Belden and what we can provide," said Chand. "We know that we are a piece of a customer's network, so we co-innovate with partners who build the solutions that sit on top of our network. It's a seamless process, which provides Belden customers with a robust solution that will drive business results. We currently have enlisted a number of partners to work alongside us in the CICs, and welcome an opportunity to grow this existing roster in the areas of security, edge computing, data management and analytics.
