Because together, we’re better

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success” – Henry Ford

It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we’re in it together. Cisco and Rockwell have been partnering for more than 12 years. The foundation of this partnership is to lead digital transformation for The Connected Enterprise by bringing together the leading industrial automation solutions and IT technologies.

This year’s theme, Because together, we’re better, is at the center of our partnership– working together to provide the best in class solutions and help customers reach their digital transformation goals.

We don’t just want to help solve your most pressing challenges…we want to build a strategic partnership with you to ensure long-term success.

Showcase / Booth


You will find Cisco in the McCormick Convention Center (West Hall F2) at Booth # 1035


Wednesday, November 20 from 8:00am – 5:30pm

Thursday, November 21 from 8:00am – 4:00pm

At this year’s event, we are showcasing the incredible use cases and applications of Cisco and Rockwell technologies– demonstrating how securely and intelligently connecting operational and business systems creates end-to-end visibility of your operations.

At the heart of the Cisco showcase, you will find industrial networking, industrial security, and workforce enablement use cases.

At the corners, you will find use cases specific to your industry. This will include practical applications for how a converged architecture could benefit – mining, process, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and automotive.

You will also find our joint technologies in the Rockwell Integrated Architecture booth on the networking wall and in the Connected Enterprise booth under the Industrial Data Center (IDC). Scott Friberg, our Cisco expert, will be there from 12pm to 3pm each day so stop by and say hello!

We can’t forget the great giveaways – socks and light-up shoe laces! Plus enter into a raffle for a drone or classic Nintendo player.
