Cisco Innovation Center openBerlin

Be inspired and create new ideas with us and our partner ecosystem to gain competitive advantages.

Driving success with co-innovation

Digitization is changing markets faster than ever before: Only companies who constantly reinvent themselves will have long-term success. But designing and driving innovation today is anything but easy. In the age of the Internet of Things, it is important to remain on top of comprehensive networking and the immense amounts of data resulting from it. In addition, the variety of possible applications and the technological complexity demand broad expertise. A single company alone is practically unable to do this.

In openBerlin we initiate and execute co-innovation projects by bringing customers and our partner ecosystem together. Based on IoT solutions we are creating innovations and new ideas.

„openBerlin starts exactly where Germany needs innovation: secure networking in industry, digitization of buildings as well as development of smart cities.“

Oliver Tuszik, Vice President and CEO, Cisco Germany

The 4 pillars of co-innovation

Our clear goal: Each project should be completed within 12 months - with a real solution that our customers can use or offer on the market and that enables us to learn something new. To ensure this, our approach at openBerlin is based on 4 pillars.


Showcases demonstrate concrete use cases of trend technologies and give customers inspirations for their own projects.


Customers, Cisco and partners contribute their joint know-how to projects so that new ideas and solutions can emerge.


Using validated methods, we make sure solutions are developed within the agreed period.


In each project the marketability of the solution is a key element within the concept right from the start. In assuring this, we and our partners apply our longstanding experience.

In Focus: Smart Manufacturing, Smart City, Smart Building

openBerlin is one of eleven Cisco Innovation Centers worldwide, each with its own industry-specific focus. At openBerlin, the topics Smart Manufacturing, Smart Cities and Smart Building are supported in particular.

Smart City

With data from real test tracks for automated driving in Berlin and test areas such as the grounds of the EUREF Campus, we demonstrate what the smart city can look like. Connected street lamps on the campus not only provide data that can be used to regulate road traffic - they also provide useful everyday information, for example, in which cafeteria on the campus, the queue is currently the shortest. Together we work on new ideas based on real data. Our partners include companies like Axians, Civicsmart, Clevercity, Leapcraft and Wellness Telecom.

Smart Manufacturing 

Industry 4.0, digital transformation, smart manufacturing are omnipresent buzzwords. But what does a reliable, high-performance network solution actually look like in the industry? This is something we demonstrate with the Smart Manufacturing showcase. Based on this foundation we jointly create solutions that improve previous achievements.

Smart Building  

Connected buildings lead to significant savings in energy costs and improve flexibility as well as security in facility management. In addition, employees in smart offices are more productive. Based on open standards we are paving the road to making buildings smart. We are working together with partners like Bosch, Hoesch, Wago, EnOcean and Phillips.
