The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a global industry phenomenon that brings together people, processes, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before.

At Cisco, we have built our business on the idea that there is opportunity in things we have yet to experience and, in some cases, have yet to imagine. We encourage open innovation, embrace the notion that many heads are better than one, and support the exploration of new technologies and methods that originate outside the company.

As the Internet of Everything progresses, we are embarking on a journey that will change every part of our lives. For the better.

About the Cisco IoE Innovation Centre Toronto

Cisco IoE Innovation Centres located around the world inspire and showcase local IoE innovation and development. The first of its kind in North America, the Cisco IoE Innovation Centre Toronto helps organizations improve business outcomes by integrating, creating, testing, and validating IoE solutions.

The Cisco IoE Innovation Centre Toronto is designed to transform the status quo by bringing together customers, partners, startups, accelerators, governments, universities, researchers, and open communities to:

  • Showcase and demonstrate the IoE in action
  • Provide physical and virtual laboratories for proof-of-concept work
  • Foster local and global innovation through talent development, university and research partnerships, startup engagements, and investments in local resources (enterprises and people)

Cisco estimates that IoE opportunities will be worth US$400 billion to the Canadian private sector over the next decade. For the public sector, these opportunities could produce US$95 billion in cost savings, new revenues, and employee productivity enhancements over the same period. This state-of-the-art lab, collaboration, and demonstration facility unveils the potential of IoE solutions for Canadian innovation while advancing business efficiencies and social benefits.

We invite you to take a virtual tour.
