Each time I get a push notification on my phone from my handy dandy NBC Olympic app I think about Cisco and I’m astounded by the ever-changing technology that surrounds us. They are calling it the Digital Olympics in London, and there’s good reason to do so. In the palm of my hand I can see minute to minute updates of the latest in breaking Olympic news, videos, photos, medal counts, athlete bios, and wait… yes, even watch my favorite (swimming – Go Phelps!) Olympic events live! And while I may be cozily sitting in my office watching the Olympics on my phone – ah, I mean working… there are many “Cisco-ians” fast at work making it all possible in London.
We are often found ragging on Cisco for its dirty big business antics, but this time the tables are turned and we applaud them. Cisco will be alive and well at the Olympics this summer in London. Cisco is a key sponsor and the proud supporter and network infrastructure provider for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. And from the looks of what they’ve accomplished so far, Cisco has been hard at work for a while getting London ready for the games.
