One thing we truly appreciate about Cisco Live UK is the global nature of our attendees. Not only do we get to see our eclectic, enthusiatic, and worldly customers, but also we get to see our Cisco counterparts from all over the globe.
Take for example Ahmed Farrag. Ahmed is the Director of Business Development for Emerging Solutions Ecosystems, and he is based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. We first met Ahmed at Cisco Live US last year. This year, he was very impressed with the customer presence from Emerging Markets, the Middle East, and EMEAR (Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia):
So we've wrapped up another exciting day in London!
Today we saw Padmasree Warrior's keynote address "Zero to Zetta," learned more about Cisco' World of Solutions, met a lot of great customers, and saw a lot of great demos!
One of the demos we had on display today was our "Converged Industrial Wireless" demonstration. In the video below, you will see Mark Bakker, our Business Development Manager for Industrial Automation for Solutions Ecosystems, talk about his experience at Cisco Live UK. He also talks about all of Cisco's partnerships in Industrial Automation, including Honeywell, Rockwell, Panduit, and OSIsoft and our work with Secure Wireless Networking. If you speak Dutch, please send us a translation of what he says at the end!
It has been quite an exciting day, and it started with me traveling on a red double-decker red bus and then on 'the tube' - well, we are in London!
Cisco's CTO Padmasree Warrior delivered her keynote speech, "Zero to Zetta," on the macro industry trends driving the industry today. She discussed many of today's hottest IT topics, from the relentless explosion of devices and content on the Internet, the rapid ascent of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), to the new models of consumption of cloud computing. Within this backdrop, she talked about Cisco's unique architectural approach to innovation and its focus on building the Intelligent Network to optimize the infrastructure in light of the changes facing the industry today.
At Cisco Live UK, we will have four areas of demonstrations, and we’ll be telling you about all four over the next few days.
In this video, Cisco's Dave Bell talks about Converged Plantwide Ethernet, which is built in conjunction with our partner Rockwell Automation. The demo also features Cisco Resilient Ethernet Protocol:
Also, we'll be showing an Industrial-style cabinet with Industrial Switching housed with Panduit closet equipment. We’ll be bringing viewers more demonstrations over the coming days featuring partners like Rockwell, Panduit, OSISoft and Honeywell.
