Cisco at Automation Fair THIS WEEK! Meet Cisco Industry Experts in Chicago, 16th-17th.

November 14, 2011
at 12:22 pm PST

“Chicago, Chicago, I’ll show you around, You’ll Stay Around”, sings Frank Sinatra in the Fred Fisher song ‘Chicago’ published in 1922.

Well, come to the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois this week (16th and 17th November 2011) and let Cisco show you around Booth #239 where we’ll show you some cool demonstrations, and talk to you about your business and technical issues and how Cisco can help.

Remember that Automation Fair is one of the largest industrial Automation Events in the world. As I mentioned in my Cisco at Rockwell Automation Fair, Chicago Illinois, 16th-17th November 2011 blog we’ll be active this week both at our own booth and also at a four way A four-way Cisco, Rockwell, Panduit and Fluke booth showing the power of a broader partnership bringing all aspects of network convergence together.

Catch the joint Cisco-Rockwell presentations on key network convergence topics plus Cisco Speakers at the Global Machine Builders (OEM) and Food and Beverage Forums. In the later forum you’ll hear about Cisco’s Industrial Intelligence solutions from Chet Namboodri, Cisco Managing Director for the Manufacturing Industry, and how Cisco is helping to solve real Manufacturing issues in the CPG sector.

You’ll be able to discuss Industrial Ethernet, mobility, security, collaboration, and video solutions for the production environment with industry specialists. See live demonstrations showing how video can impact productivity and efficiencies on the plant floor, and how you can securely offer remote access into plant applications.

As a Strategic Partner for Rockwell, you’ll know more about the Cisco and Rockwell joint alliance, joint product developments, and how you can benefit from the Converged Plantwide Ethernet architecture.

Remember to have fun too! Check out my ‘Manufacturing Guru’ Kevin Davenport in his invitational video blog here  Converge or die — Chicago, Nov 16-17th to get into the fun-mode! You can also view the video directly from here.

Watch out for live blogs this week from the team here in Chicago, hosted my colleague Andrew Lach his recent blog tells you more about what to expect via a host of Social media Channels.

So, back to the Fisher Chicago song: “You’ll Have The Time, The Time Of Your Life” at Automation Fair, and after you talk to our specialists at our booths or at our forums about the things that are keeping you up at night from a plant or IT perspective, I’m pretty sure I can “Bet Your Bottom Dollar You Lose The Blues In Chicago, Chicago”

See you there!
