“The value of technology like Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul is that it can provide connectivity to communities relatively quickly and ensure neighborhoods are not left behind as we work toward delivering city fiber buildout.”Kevin Gunn, Chief Technology Officer, City of Fort Worth, Texas
“Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul has redefined our perception of what can be done with wireless. It is the first time that our operators have been able to drive around the terminal without dropping a single ping. We believe this solution to be a no-brainer for any terminal looking to solve TOS connectivity or any terminal looking to roll out an automation-capable OT network. Uptime for us is king and Cisco Wireless Backhaul has over-delivered on its promises.”Stefano Lorenzini, Technical Department of La Spezia Container Terminal
“Automation is a top priority over the coming year for our customers. Across industrial environments, like manufacturing and distribution centers, autonomous vehicles are reducing downtime, improving productivity, and ensuring operator safety. In cargo ports, operators are controlling autonomous guided vehicles, like cranes and straddle carriers, safely and efficiently from the comfort of temperature-controlled offices. The Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul network is often at the heart of all these solutions.”Richard Simmons, VP of Technology, IoT, Logicalis
“Prism has been working with Cisco for years, deploying Cisco Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul across various industries, from autonomous vehicles to rail to amusement park rides. We know this technology works because we have implemented it in some extraordinarily challenging applications. It was a no-brainer for Prism to engage when presented with the opportunity to support the Indy Challenge to further autonomous development. Together, Prism and Cisco have the right technology and skillsets needed to deliver the connectivity required in high-speed autonomous racing.”Keith Jones, President, Prism Systems, Inc.
“We evaluated several technologies and none offered the performance we needed to make Clemson’s autonomous racecar prototype a success. We chose Cisco’s Ultra-Reliable Wireless Backhaul for its ultra-low latency, make-before-break seamless handoff, and proven performance in high-speed moving environments. While the vehicle can drive itself, we need Cisco’s solution to ensure safety protocols are in place and that the vehicle can be stopped in an emergency.”Robert Prucka, Deep Orange 12 faculty lead and Kulwicki Endowed Professor, Motorsports Engineering at Clemson University
School districts like Canutillo in Texas are collaborating with Cisco to deliver secure, fast, reliable Wi-Fi access to educators, students, and communities.
