Day 2 at Automation Fair, Part 2

November 17, 2011 at 6:00 pm PST

Congratulations Cisco team! Automation Fair has drawn to a close and we are celebrating a successful event.

It was so great to meet face-to-face with our customers and discuss all of the exciting technologies which are available to the Manufacturing Industry. We were particularly pleased that our customers now recognize Cisco as not only a provider of products, such as routers and switches, but also as a provider of Solutions.

Stay tuned to our blog for all of the in-depth discussion and analysis our team will provide from their experiences at Automation Fair. Please join the conversation and let us know what you thought of what you saw at the event!
