Games Legacy

In partnership with Rio de Janeiro’s city and state governments, Cisco is establishing a foundation that will help Rio to position itself as a smart, connected and innovative city.

This will create a transformational experience for both visitors and citizens during the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and will leave a legacy long after the event is over.
