New Digital Manufacturing & Energy Innovations Debut in Berlin

February 15, 2017 - 0 Comments

Cisco Live Berlin is upon us next week, and your time is now to get a glimpse at new solution offerings that enable your Industrie 4.0 or Industrial IoT Digital Transformation. Talk with our manufacturing and energy experts in Hall 1, Floor 1.2 on how IT and operations can better work together to achieve operational excellence in your environment.

At Cisco, we believe that when IT and Operations work together and better understand each group’s needs, Digital Transformation can be achieved faster, at lower cost, and with less pain than when either group decides to work independently.

You can help drive efficiency with one platform to display alarms, share & store data, and communicate effectively & securely with remote teams using industrial collaboration solutions, including Cisco Spark. Learn how remote expert solutions allow you to oversee more facilities, in more places, with a smaller team of experts:

Meet with our security experts in the booth and learn how industrial networks are the #1 targeted industry for cyberattacks and security breaches. Learn how comprehensive security from the enterprise to end devices can lower your costs, improve safety, and reduce downtime.

Talk with our networking gurus about our Connected Factory solution, a network backbone that can handle the demands and unleash the possibilities of digital technology. Learn how adopting a tested and validated architecture, including factory wireless, will allow your manufacturing processes to securely operate at higher levels of performance, efficiency, and uptime. And see how a connected machine solution can take OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) to new levels leveraging fog computing.

Take a look at our connected energy platforms, where you will find advanced teleprotection services to enhance communications from the cloud to the field, which also includes Cisco validated architectures and robust, secure systems that conform to the latest regulatory standards such as NERC CIP v5.

Be sure to ask for a sneak peek at some new offerings as well. Our new portfolio of products, solutions, services, design guides, and industry standards bring the full power of Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture to manufacturing and energy:

Our new offerings include:

  • A new security bundle to better protect your intellectual property and production integrity.
  • A new software offering delivering a unified KPI dashboard from high value manufacturing assets to business managers that enables technicians to monitor and boost operational efficiency by identifying and optimizing under performing machines, production lines, or sites.
  • A new purpose built network automation platform for industrial operation teams with switching, unified computing, and firewall capability to securely take full advantage of industrial ethernet connectivity and increase system availability.
  • Cisco leadership in new industry standards around Time Sensitive Networking (TSN). Learn how time critical applications can be handled with determinism over Industrial Ethernet.

And finally, empower your Operations team with full visibility into the automation network with a purpose-built user experience for operations with an easily adopted, fast path to network management. Cisco Industrial Network Director delivers comprehensive visibility into your automation network, and Cisco IE switching family control capabilities improve system availability and performance.

We also have 6 Manufacturing sessions available at the show.
