Tomorrow’s a special #WirelessWednesday, hats off to the folks working hard at Tech Field Day for kicking off the SEVENTH installment of Wireless Field Day. It’s an exciting time for the industry to give the delegates and the world wide web of Wi-Fi enthusiasts a glimpse behind the scenes of some of the latest technologies, and we are ready to put on a show.
This year, Cisco will host Wireless Field Day 7 delegates at the Cisco Meraki San Francisco office this Friday.
We will be spending 2 hours discussing the forefront of Wireless technology with Cisco thought leaders. Here is a sneak peek of what will be covered.
Latest updates on the Cisco Meraki MR product line.
Deep dive into the Cisco Meraki traffic analytics algorithm; how it works and how it scales for large deployments.
Deep dives into MU-MIMO and RX-SOP; what they are and how they work
Are you trying to get your arms around what’s included in a well-designed EtherNet/IP industrial infrastructure? Look no further! Here’s an example of how the Internet of Everything (IoE) came alive at Automation Fair recently:
An integrated design from Cisco, Rockwell Automation, Panduit and Fluke Networks demonstrates standards-based solutions for manufacturing agility and operational excellence!
A recent blog by Sue Nolin discussed the EtherNet/IP Network Infrastructure on display in the joint partner booth at Automation Fair this week.
In this video Paul Didier, Cisco’s Solution Architect, tells us about the partners in that booth and how their combined technologies provide the core foundation for successful standard IP network deployments in a plant environment.
Equipment builders and plant personnel are trying to achieve three goals simultaneously:
Converge their control and enterprise networks
Simplify and lower the costs of their machines
Improve line integration at the plants they serve
Rockwell Automation, Panduit, Fluke Networks, and Cisco joint demonstrations
As the world’s leading industrial Ethernet, EtherNet/IP converges the physical framework offered by Panduit, logical framework by Cisco and Rockwell Automation and toolsets from Fluke Networks, enabling equipment builders and plant personnel to design and deploy robust, secure and future-ready networks utilizing common infrastructure assets.
While you’re at Cisco booth #1307 – be sure to come right across the way to booth #1407 to see how EtherNet/IP is changing the manufacturing industry. Cisco and its partners – Rockwell Automation, Panduit and Fluke Networks – will demonstrate how each component works together to design and deploy robust, secure and future-ready networks using common infrastructure assets.

A funny thing happened to me on the way to the fair. The Rockwell automation Fair that is.The Pilot comes on the intercom and says something like:
“Hi, it’s the captain here. I want to tell you that we can’t get the flaps into the right position. We need number 15 and we can only get to 14.” (or he said something like that). “We’ve tried a few times and it doesn’t want to move.”
So we (the passengers) are all thinking: “What does that mean – are we going down?” Most of us don’t pilot planes so we don’t know how serious the situation is. We all agreed in our seating row that it was ‘TMI’ -- Too Much Information? I think he realized that, because he then said words to the effect of:
