CHICAGO -- Cisco paid a visit to Chicago this week to talk Internet of Things with guests both live and joining virtually via telepresence.
The IT giant is making a big push into connecting anything and everything and, as part of this goal, announced plans for three additional IoT innovation labs across the world. It also talked up the importance of distributing intelligence at the edge of the network rather than in central offices, a concept Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) has dubbed "fog computing." (See Cisco to Open 3 More IoT Innovation Labs and Cisco Puts a Fog Over IoT.)
The event took place at Chicago's 1871, a co-working space for digital startups, where we managed to snap a few pics. Click on the picture below to launch a short slide show from Cisco's IoT day.
