DALLAS - Cisco Systems became a platinum sponsor of the fourth annual BuilConn Americas, an integrated and intelligent building conference and exposition being held at the Palm Springs Convention Center, May 16-18, Palm Springs, Calif.

As part of its participation and in partnership with BuilConn, Cisco is sponsoring the first of a series of industry roundtables. This invitation-only gathering of key stakeholders will discuss the subject of building-IT convergence.

BuilConn is focused on the adoption, application, and business development of IP-centric building automation systems. "From the very beginning, BuilConn's focus has been about connectivity, and it's encouraging to see the most influential player in IP connectivity take a lead role in supporting BuilConn," said Anto Budiardjo, BuilConn organizer. "Without a doubt, this signals building-IT convergence as being a reality today."
