Cisco Connected Industries at Cisco Live! Melbourne, Australia, 5-8 March, 2013

Cisco MelbourneCheck out the Connected Industries presence at Cisco Live Australia, 2013.

Cisco Connected Industries are present  in Melbourne showing off some of the latest ruggedized equipment that Cisco has for industrial users such as those in the manufacturing, Oil and Gas, and Mining sectors.

There’s a static display of equipment to allow customers to “touch and feel” all models of the Industrial Ethernet range: IE3000, IE2000, IE3010, C819, AIR1552, ESR5915, ESR5940.

There will also be h a great demo session focused on real-time mobile data collection in the mining industry (to show a harsh environment application).

CiscoLive_tech_demoThe demonstration utilizes the Cisco 819 M2M router and Cisco Industrial Ethernet switches to show how telemetry can be collected from a mining vehicle and back-hauled over a Cisco wireless mesh infrastructure to a central data center. The data can be securely monitored for abnormal fluctuations from a remote location using Cisco’s VPN and ASA Firewall technologies. The detection of an abnormality can be used to generate warning alerts via management systems, IP Telephony and Instant Messaging. Cool huh? Now that’s Connected Manufacturing! (or Connected Mining in this case!).

Can’t make it to Melbourne this year? Then register for Cisco Live 365 and get all the session action on your desktop!
