Mumbai: Cisco Systems plans to aggressively focus on the Indian auto manufacturing, sector with solutions to streamline processes, improve productivity and ensure faster turn-around of high quality products. Towards this end Cisco is hosting an auto seminar in the three key automotive hubs in India — Pune, Chennai and Delhi. A key feature of the seminar is a technology showcase covering a wide range of innovative technologies such as Wireless LANs, IP telephony and video surveillance for increased collaboration, monitoring and service management in the Indian auto industry.
