Cisco Live UK Demo Part 2: Workforce enablement with CEBT, OSISoft and Collaboration

February 2, 2012 at 6:16 am PST

This is Cisco Live UK: Day 3, Part 3

You’ll remember in my previous blog (part 1) that we said that the Workforce Enablement demonstration shows the integration between OSISoft (one of Cisco’s Partners in the industrial telemetry and asset management field) integrated with Cisco cross-architectures: so we have Borderless networks, Data Center and Collaboration technologies. We also have an application called CEBT – which is a workforce enablement application (Collaboration-Enabled Business Transformation Introduction brochure -- click here)

So in the demo we see a Wind turbine going out of specification. The demo shows live dynamic telemetry data. Steve Matthews resets the data to cause a malfunction and cause an alert. You see the data change – the top right bar goes from green to yellow, basically a temperature alert. An SMS message is transmitted and, in this case, a telephone rings alerting the Control Room staff. Read More »

Cisco Live UK Demo Part 1: Workforce enablement with CEBT, OSISoft and Collaboration

February 2, 2012 at 1:01 am PST

Here’s Cisco Live: Day 3, Part 2

Today I had the pleasure of talking with Steve Matthews about Cisco’s Industrial Workforce Enablement demo. Steve is a Cisco consulting engineer with expertise in Borderless Networks; he is based in Manchester, UK.

In this video Steve is telling me about the demo that features real time data analysis and Cisco UC and networking technologies that enable real-time events to be captured and/or acted upon. We are using the application software to capture real time data from, in this case, a wind farm, and that data is both analyzed and stored and alerts are sent.

The demonstration shows the integration between OSISoft (one of Cisco’s Partners in the industrial telemetry and asset management field) integrated with Cisco cross-architectures: so we have Borderless networks, Data Center and Collaboration technologies. We also have an application called CEBT – which is a workforce enablement application. Read More »
