Let me tell you about a great opportunity if you’re an executive or professional in the Manufacturing or Industrial sector. Cisco is hosting a special ‘Industrial Intelligence Day’ on the 12th July 2011 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas held in conjunction with Cisco Live.
The event is especially tailored to bring together manufacturing, controls, operations and IT executives and professionals. The theme of the day is ‘Industrial Intelligence’, and will cover the subject of converging industrial automation systems based upon standard IP networks with business applications including voice and video to more responsively and cost-effectively manage industrial operations globally.
The day is packed with information, training, and industry best practices and is sure to be one of the smartest investments you can make in your career—and one of the smartest investments your employer can make in you.
By attending Cisco Industrial Intelligence at Cisco Live, you can:
Learn how Industrial Intelligence brings production closer to IT and converges industrial automation networks with business systems to improve the efficiency, safety, agility, and utilization of your production assets.
Receive training in architectures specific to industrial automation from Cisco and alliance partner Rockwell Automation including wireless and wired technology advancements, availability, security, sustainability and energy management.
Engage Industrial Intelligence and IT Networking thought leaders from our partners and the industrial analyst community via a live panel discussion plus join a community of manufacturing executives and IT and Control professionals deploying and operating Industrial applications and networks.
These two items are really well matched. CiscoLive has a rich history focused directly on knowledge sharing, learning and of course certifications. This is what I really love about these events -- tons of smart geeks looking to have fun and get smarter.
Our goal for this special edition of TechWiseTV is to dive into the motivation and the opportunity of using CiscoLive as a milestone in your career. These events occur in key cities around the world featuring abundant benefits for those pursuing career advancement in the networking field.
I am still pleasantly surprised that the title of this show “Intelligent Switches Come out of the Closet” has not been yanked by our censors. The show is a good one of course, and double entendre aside, this notion of moving out of the switching closet and putting switch resources right at a critical point of entry is exactly what we are talking about. This is another of our three shows taped at CiscoLive in London, the Borderless team released a new line of ‘compact switches’ purpose-built for a very unique environment.
You can watch the full show by clicking here (this link will take you into our virtual environment which does require registration the first time you go…nice thing is you only have to do this once and you can poke around to see the rest of our content).
CiscoLive London was an incredible trip and gosh it was only 30 days ago – our first little project out of that voyage is TechWiseTV85 our latest episode on Data Center technologies. Data Center Optimization: The Next Stage is now available for your viewing pleasure in our ‘still has that new website smell’ environment we affectionately call the CVC (Cisco Virtual Connection).
This show was another exercise in self-restraint as the DC team had brought out an amazing selection – if we were hoping that a global show would mean a smaller show…we were out of luck.
