This seminar will focus on Context Aware Solutions. Within today’s manufacturing environments, tracking assets and people is crucial for promoting efficiencies in business processes and ultimately reducing costs and time to market. The AeroScout Visibility System accurately locates and tracks valuable assets such as equipment or people. By operating over Cisco® Unified Wireless networks, AeroScout solutions minimize the incremental cost for the communications network and enable greatly enhanced visibility throughout the enterprise. The solution can scale to include tens of thousands of tags, without affecting other traffic on the network.
Industrial Intelligence is a multi-billion dollar opportunity growing at approximately 20% per year over the next five years. Much of the growth is driven by the proliferation of smart devices globally, and Cisco partners have a unique opportunity to provide the technology to connect an estimated trillion devices by 2020. In this “how to” workshop, the speakers will introduce the Cisco Industrial Intelligence for Manufacturers market opportunity, target customers, solution portfolio, case studies, and sales tools to help partners succeed.
The Just a quick reminder for Cisco Partners to attend the Cisco and Librestream Partner Webinar tomorrow (9th June 2011) at 8.00am Pacific. Find out about the exciting new solution that’s being adopted worldwide by customers like Boeing, GE and FIAT.
Remember how I told you I was really excited by this new Cisco and Librestream MMVC solution. Lots of information out on the web, and lots of questions so I thought I’d put a brief video together to give you an introduction and to see if we can get a discussion going and also to see if we can answer some of the questions for you. It addresses what really matters to many customers. What are the pain-points that manufacturers and industry have today? How do they get hold of the right people to fix things if something goes wrong, and how can they say ‘I see what you mean now’ — and really mean it? My original blog gave lots of information.
If you are a Cisco Partner and interested in building a manufacturing industry practice, this webinar is for you!
One of many overlooked areas where manufacturers are finding real productifity and efficiency gains is in the Warehouse. Sure, Supply Chain Agility is key to the global recovery, but some companies are still not using the best technologies to address their business imperatives.
But we don’t try to do absolutely everything ourselves. We recognize that there are other companies out there that have the same customer-centric focus that Cisco has.
Intermec is one of those companies. Cisco has been working with Intermec for years. We have joint RFID and Barcode based solutions and many of the Intermec devices are certified as Cisco Compatible interoperability tested. I recently met up with Dan Albaum, Intermec’s Senior Director of Marketing. Dan told me that the technology continues to evolve and told me about the events Intermec had set up to spread the word.
Intermec have recently announced a refreshed product lin and is running events in various cities, some events for Intermec partners to understand the value propositions for their customers, and some aimed at customers and prospects showing how the Cisco Wireless LAN compatible devices and end points can address their business care-abouts.
Last week there were some people in the world who had to get their “stuff” in order, and there was no TIME to waste. I imagine for some the daunting task of contacting relatives and friends of years gone by, completing the last items on their bucket list, selling the house of 27 years, and putting out the last meal for Sparky was not a trivial task. Why the state of urgency? Well, for those of you not aware a man by the name of Harold Camping, Christian radio host, predicted the end of the world would occur on May 21, 2011 at 6 p.m. As a result, followers had to exhibit keen organizational skills, and the ability to synchronize and collaborate with various organizations, entities and persons. They had to accomplish things in REAL TIME, in order to be “Ready.”
Well the rapture did not come, but it did prompt me to ponder the questions, “Who’s keeping the ‘Real Time?” and “What’s the ramifications as a result of capturing events in real time, if any?
The term “real time” is the new paradigm of the 21st century. Nations all over the world today are looking for ways to not only access and capture real time data and events, but leverage the information to build advance economies and increase value for its citizens. Every industry and field uses the term to identify opportunities for efficiencies and value. For example, the financial industry provides us with ‘real time’ quotes, the news media supplies us with up to the minute ‘real time’ news, traffic and weather, and our government provides us with real time polling information. The industry that has been most effected by this real time paradigm is manufacturing. (Please Read More) Read More »
