Belden Customer Innovation Center

Technical Consulting

Committed to collaborating with customers to innovate & solve the most complex networking & infrastructure challenges.

Confidently build the network you need

Data-driven operations enable countless improvements—from rapidly launching new products to streamlining process for greater agility and lower risk. As a result, sharing information seamlessly and securely across the enterprise has become the gold standard in terms of operational excellence.

Conversely, if critical information is siloed within multiple discrete operational or information systems, it’s significantly more difficult to drive efficiencies and unlock the value of your organization’s data. Achieving seamless, reliable and secure connectivity between IT and OT systems requires multidisciplinary expertise combined with the requisite applications and vertical knowledge. 

That’s where the Belden Customer Innovation Center (CIC) comes in.
