Speaking of Convergence – Cisco at ARC World Industry Forum

February 7, 2013 - 1 Comment


Every year, ARC Advisory Group hosts forums and conferences in major cities around the world.  Topics range from automotive, CPG, aerospace, biotech, chemicals, mining, oil and gas and other sectors.  The forums allow corporate executives to network with peers and gather industry intelligence.

Cisco is pleased to be highlighting its converged, industrial networking architecture at the seventeenth annual ARC World Industry Forum: “Achieving Breakthrough Performance with New Processes and Technologies”.

This year, that event takes place at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida on February 11–14.

Please be our guest at the welcome reception in the Oceans Ballroom on Monday evening from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, courtesy of Cisco and the ARC Advisory Group.  Then, join us at the forum to hear about innovative networking solutions that can help you to significantly outperform your competition.  At the forum, we’ll offer advice to help your business grow, reduce costs and solve business challenges.

The topics of industrial networking and of converged Operations and Information Technology often lead to discussions specific to security, risk management, and the Internet of Things.  Cisco executives will speak at forum workshops and panel discussions to address these topics in detail.
