Here are just a few things that are happening at the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois on 16th and 17th November:

Cisco and Rockwell have been working together for some time now to bring the converged network architecture to customers saving them cost and providing substantial business and technical benefits. The key trend in this space is convergence:  integrating operations and production into the Enterprise:

  • Networks and technologies are converging around standard IP (Internet Protocol)…
  • IT and operations are converging
  • Cisco brings key capabilities around security and collaboration to the islands of production. Cisco and Rockwell are uniquely positioned to make this trend happen as the leaders in IT and Rockwell as the experts in operations and production.

Our partnership with Rockwell Automation is aimed at increasing Cisco’s relevancy with manufacturers by focusing on two of their key business process:  operations and production
