So here we are. Last week was Automation Fair. What did you learn?
Oh, you didn’t go? Well, that is your loss, truly. A free show in Chicago where you could have learned about all sorts of new products and insights from Rockwell Automation and their network of partners, of which Cisco is a proud Alliance Partner. And you would have gotten free breakfast and lunch too!
Ok, in multiple booths we showed how one machine can integrate into another, and form a production line. Funny how that happens. We at Cisco are a part of ODVA, a trade association of many partners that subscribe to open standard networks.

Don’t you just hate it when you drop your phone and it just stops working? My last phone fell out of my top pocket when I leaned over our pool and even though I got it out in less than 10 seconds and tried to dry it out, it was toast. Well, soggy toast I suppose.
There are times when you need something more. If you’re a manufacturer and you need some ruggedization then you might find it advantageous to look at the Cisco offerings. There are rugged versions of several products: switches, wireless access points and IP phone handsets to name just three.

Congratulations Cisco team! Automation Fair has drawn to a close and we are celebrating a successful event.
It was so great to meet face-to-face with our customers and discuss all of the exciting technologies which are available to the Manufacturing Industry. We were particularly pleased that our customers now recognize Cisco as not only a provider of products, such as routers and switches, but also as a provider of Solutions.
Stay tuned to our blog for all of the in-depth discussion and analysis our team will provide from their experiences at Automation Fair. Please join the conversation and let us know what you thought of what you saw at the event!
