Cisco excited to help create digital experience offered at Expo 2020 Dubai
Cisco has been appointed as the Expo 2020 Dubai Digital Network Partner and will provide secure networking and connectivity at the site.
According to the technology giant, it will provide an infrastructure that constantly learns, adapts and protects, “making it the ideal foundation for the complete digital experience offered at Expo 2020 Dubai.”
It added that its solution will also help enable visitors, exhibitors and organisers to connect anywhere, on any device, “securely, reliably and seamlessly.”
HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of the Expo 2020 Dubai Higher Committee, said: “Dubai is rapidly becoming one of the smartest and most connected cities in the world, exploring futuristic solutions that range from driverless vehicles to artificial intelligence solutions. At Expo 2020, we hope not only to share the expertise we have acquired across these areas, but also, through our partnership with Cisco, to connect minds around the world and capture the many opportunities made possible through collaboration.”
Cisco has also revealed that Expo 2020 will also utilise its Cisco Vision signage solution which provides dynamic signage and high-definition digital content and video, “that will help enable more than 200 international participants to offer compelling, interactive experiences and engage with visitors and employees in new and more impactful ways.”
Guy Diedrich, global innovation officer, Cisco, added: “At Cisco, we firmly believe that amazing things can happen when you connect people, ideas, data and things. By partnering with Expo 2020 Dubai, we will not only showcase the future of technology and the incredible possibilities it presents, but also help shape how we all connect, communicate and collaborate. Supporting a global event of this magnitude is a monumental task that demands a network like no other – one which can deliver on the requirements of connectivity, scale, security and agility. Our technology innovations are unlocking amazing opportunities for humanity, and we are excited to contribute to the ambitious goals set by Expo 2020 Dubai as part of our vision to change the way people live, work, learn and play.”
