Wow, one of the best Cisco Live events yet: Cisco has its mojo back (analyst comments!); attendees engaging in great dialogue, and Cisco and Partner Presenters and demonstrations better than ever!
The keynote sessions are always packed, and with the big-name executives on show that’s hardly surprising. I, for one, was also impressed at how well attended the breakout sessions were too. The World of solutions was packed a lot of the time as well, with huge interest in the Internet of Things pavilion.
There was a welcome surprise in store for attendees of the session number BRKIND-1229, on “Cisco Industrial Solutions and Best Practices for Manufacturing”, as Chet Namboodri had arranged for an exclusive live Business Industry over Telepresence demo – piped in from the west coast all the way to Orlando – the world is getting smaller folks!

Your car GPS alerts you on an accident and automatically found the best detour. The car ahead of you suddenly brakes and your car adjusts automatically. Your car alerted your mechanic that something is ‘not quite right’ and started sharing diagnostic data, before you set out on your excursion.
During your road trip, your car guides you to the nearest gas station when you’re driving on empty in the middle of a strange town. You sneak in one last meeting before arriving at the campsite. Your car ensured that your conference call never had to reconnect even while going through the tunnel.
Now, if your car is going to be this smart, then it must be able to deliver critical information not only fast, but also securely and reliably.
This is the vision for the Cisco Connected Car. Cisco’s expertise in delivering enterprise grade connectivity to Fortune 500 companies is being customized for passenger vehicles. Cisco provides an end-to-end architecture that comprises an intelligent software client in the vehicle, a reliable roadside and backhaul framework and an automotive cloud infrastructure that is highly scalable, secure and fast. This architecture is designed to seamlessly manage and deliver mission critical information to millions of connected cars.
This robust framework provides the foundation for a whole new suite of automotive applications. Cisco believes that the Internet of Cars is an excellent use case of how The Internet of Everything will transform the way we drive and the automotive business. The Internet of Everything brings together people, process, data and things to make networked connections between vehicles to vehicles, vehicles to people, and vehicles to everything a growing necessity. Cisco recently released an Internet of Everything Economic analysis that identified a $350 billion value at stake when connected commercial vehicles are connected.

Last week I went to one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco…. Swan Oyster. It’s an old school “dive” with the authentic rustic ambience you would expect from a 100 year old SF oyster bar. I waited in line for 2 HOURS for four reasons……well 3.8 reasons. First, you can’t find fresher oysters anywhere, second; the smoked salmon on rye melts in your mouth and the 3.8th reason…. well, my mother in law loves it (that deserves more weight than 1 reason, so I gave 1.8)
So, why I’m a being a food critic at an event dedicated to IT, industrial and manufacturing professionals. Well, I know you are constantly analyzing reasons to make the right decisions whether for your family, business or career. Even if they’re as mundane as determining if you should stand in line for 2 hours with you dear mother in law for a dozen oysters and a generous helping of smoked salmon on rye. So, I thought I would give you $14.4 Trillion (reasons!!!) to visit the IoT Pavilion (booth #1558) June 23-27 at Cisco Live in Orlando this year.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) will create opportunities to capture $14.4 trillion of value between 2013 – 2022. Of which, $3.88 trillion (reasons!!) worth of value can be obtained from manufacturing and industrial industries. That’s $3.88 trillion (reasons!!) of cost savings and revenue generation that can be realized by taking advantage of the IoE revolution!!!
What is IoE anyway? Is it like the Y2000 hype…. absolutely not.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) connects people, processes, data, and things (IoT) to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before creating new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity. IoE will be a disruptive force that radically transforms they way we create, build, deliver and experience every product and service we use today.
Every manufacturer will need to connect existing devices to the Internet for control monitoring, and intelligent decision analysis. Previously unconnected devices will become smart objects and sensors connected seamlessly and securely throughout the enterprise. Applications that haven’t been identified will be created and enabled to drive operational excellence, improved asset utilization, supply chain agility, innovation, workforce productivity and increased customer satisfaction and acquisition.
The $14.4 trillion (reasons!!!) dwindle fairly quickly over time. Manufacturers and industrial producers do not have long to develop and deploy the infrastructure required to take ADVANTAGE of the IoE revolution. The challenge is that many of the things (IoT) deployed in industrial environments were built for very specific purposes, and due to lack of standards were developed with their own proprietary protocols.
These approaches and strategies produce highly complex and costly infrastructures that do not scale or provide the flexibility to capture the $14.4 trillion value form IoE.
As Global Industry Director for Manufacturing at Cisco, Chet Namboodri is looking forward to joining you and more than 20,000 of your colleagues at our 2013 Cisco Live event in Orlando, Florida, during June 23-27.
As part of this year’s Cisco Live on Tuesday afternoon, June 25, I’ll be hosting a one hour break-out session (number BRKIND-1229) titled “Cisco Industrial Solutions and Best Practices for Manufacturing”. This session is for manufacturers, their suppliers and their partners who are looking for transparent integration and secure real-time visibility between business networks with control and automation systems—and want to find out the business value that will give them.
In that session I’ll be talking about how you can unify the different kinds of networks – those that utilize information technologies, or IT and those that utilize operational technology, or OT. Just think of the ease of management, support and expansion with an open-standards based architecture that not only reduces total cost of ownership (TCO), but is already providing Cisco customers with real business returns. I’ll talk more about that and give you customer names and use cases at Cisco Live.
One of the key ways Cisco can help you get there is with “Cisco Smart Solutions,” which provide the open-standard, IP-based communication and control I mentioned to reduce costs, improve up-time, increase asset utilization, and lock-down on end-to-end security. During the session, I’ll not only talk about case studies, but even have a live business demonstration over TelePresence to showcase different business capabilities and value achieved with these converged IT/OT solutions.
