This week sees the beginning of Automation Fair, and this blog will tell you more about the demonstrations you’ll be able to see.
As I mentioned in my previous blog, Cisco speakers will be featured at the Food and Beverage Industry Forum and the Global Machine & Equipment Builders Industry Forum as well as during technical workshop sessions. In addition, demonstrations will be on show at Cisco Booth #1307, and that’s what I wanted to tell you about in this blog. This is a great opportunity to network with Cisco and industry thought leaders and technical experts, whilst actually seeing live demonstrations at the booth.
Watch the video for details of the demonstrations, to get a better feel for what’s being shown.
Here’s a brief summary of what’s going on:
- Connected vehicle example of machine-to-machine communication and real-time machine monitoring and data collection
- Live, interactive trouble-shooting of issues, regardless of the distance between the trouble-shooting engineer and the problem
- Enhanced Employee safety and plant security with Video Surveillance Monitoring
- Converged Manufacturing demonstration for capturing and sharing information between the factory and the office, enabling better operational excellence.
Cisco is uniquely positioned to help customers develop a robust, resilient, secure, future-ready and cost effective EtherNet/IP infrastructure for their plant and factory applications. The demonstrations showcase our differentiation, and Cisco’s ability to converge IT and OT (Operational Technologies) between the office and the plant floor.
Come see for yourself!
For your convenience a map below shows you where the booths are (#1307 is Cisco, #1407 is Cisco and Rockwell, together with Fluke Networks and Panduit). The Blue arrow points to the Cisco booth, with the joint Cisco/Rockwell booth next door.
