Please join me in welcoming René Pluis to the Cisco Energy Blog. René is a member of my global energy team and has vast experience of Cisco architectures and technologies and how they can be applied to our customer’s business and technical challenges to create positive business outcomes.
René has been working in the industrial network domain for several years now. His focus has been on enabling business imperatives through the deployment of communication networks, connectivity and collaboration.
His main focus is the Oil & Gas Industry, both onshore as well as offshore. Deployment of wireless technologies to connect sensors (IoT – Internet of Things) and enabling mobile wireless clients (track & trace) in hazardous areas and pipeline operations are just two of his focus areas in this industrial network domain. He is also very familiar with other areas of the energy industry such as utilities and energy management.
He combines both a technology and a business view on the solutions at hand. He has spoken at several events and conferences and is considered a consultative subject matter expert by many industry and customer groups:
- ISN Conference: “Enabling the Intelligent Sensor Network”, Rene presented alongside Marcel Struiksma, October 2014 (the presentation can be downloaded here)
