09.30     Arrive / Coffee

10.00     Routeco Introduction

10.05     Cisco Practical Industrial Networking

Cisco industrial portfolio update, positioning and practical aspects of deploying industrial networks.

Is a true plug and play network possible? Where do I start with designing a capable and secure network? How can Cisco ease the ongoing operational running of the network and how do I get visibility of the network?

10.50      Rockwell Automation - Implementing I4.0 solutions in the real world

This session will talk about how Rockwell Automation and their customers are implementing I4.0 projects powered by the Connected Enterprise to provide a competitive advantage. How do you bring the future potential of a Connected Enterprise to your plant in a controlled, secure, modular and ultimately successful manner.

11.35     Break

11.50    Panduit   -    The Industrial Networking Infrastructure – Your Future Business Foundation

The industrial network infrastructure is a valuable business asset. Investments in legacy industrial networks require a clear migration path to optimize return on assets while not missing out on performance enhancements from new technologies. During this session, participants will learn how Panduit’s standards-based approach can help simplify robust Industrial Networks to take advantage of Industry 4.0 and IIoT Deployments.

12.35     Lunch

13.15     Stratus Technologies - Enterprise & Edge Computing Made Easy

For most organisations, the path to IIoT will be evolutionary. Before you can tap into next-generation, big data-driven analytics and real-time processes, you need to ensure your computer platform delivers the highest levels of availability for your business critical applications.  Learn how Stratus’ simple, cost effective and reliable computing platforms ensure critical applications run quickly and reliably in both enterprise and edge environments.

14.00     Cisco Security - Protecting the IoT landscape, industrial security.

The threat landscape is constantly evolving becoming more advanced all the time. Visibility of your Plant Floor from a security perspective is key. This session will allow you to go away understanding how you can start to implement Operational Technology (OT) security from a visibility perspective and then how OT personnel can take ownership of the plant floor without relying on IT.

14.45     Routeco round-up
