Cisco and ODVA at 2013 Hannover Messe

- April 11, 2013 - 0 Comments

The buzz this year at Hannover Messe Fair is around “The Integrated Industry”.  One of the key technologies that’s enabling this convergence is unmodified Ethernet being deployed to the factory and plant floor.  Cisco’s core strategy for the industrial market is to accelerate the adoption of open standards by partnering with organizations like ODVA.  Cisco is a founding member of the ODVA and has enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship for close to 10 years.

2013-04-09 00.59.35Adrienne Meyer, Manager of Member Services at ODVA and Guy Denis, Cisco Business Development Manager – Connected Industries Group reminisce about the history of the relationship and speak about the importance of evolving and developing open network standards and interoperability for the converged manufacturing IT and plant networks, including security, wireless, IP telephony,power over Ethernet and real-time Ethernet/IP.

Cisco is committed and look forward to providing with our partner Rockwell Automation continued broad-based support to ODVA in the development and management of its industrial network technologies, including serving on its Board of Directors and Technical Review Board. Cisco’s increased involvement in ODVA will further enhance ODVA’s ability to drive open, interoperable and sustainable networks standards directed at unifying plant floor automation with Factory IT thus empowering the “Integrated Industry”.
