“Chicago, Chicago, I’ll show you around, You’ll Stay Around”, sings Frank Sinatra in the Fred Fisher song ‘Chicago’ published in 1922.

Well, come to the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois this week (16th and 17th November 2011) and let Cisco show you around Booth #239 where we’ll show you some cool demonstrations, and talk to you about your business and technical issues and how Cisco can help.

Remember that Automation Fair is one of the largest industrial Automation Events in the world. As I mentioned in my Cisco at Rockwell Automation Fair, Chicago Illinois, 16th-17th November 2011 blog we’ll be active this week both at our own booth and also at a four way A four-way Cisco, Rockwell, Panduit and Fluke booth showing the power of a broader partnership bringing all aspects of network convergence together.
