Overview

Overview

Cisco invites you to “Reimagine a Digital Reality” at the 36th Anniversary edition of Gitex Technology Week, the region’s premier ICT exhibition.

As we move into an era of complete digitization, Middle East governments and organizations are rethinking their value propositions, business models and how they approach their infrastructure to improve quality of life, citizen services and business outcomes.

Cisco will demonstrate its digital solutions and technology across multiple verticals including public safety and security, aviation, education, transport, public sector, and hospitality. In addition to showcasing ‘real life’ Smart City scenarios, Cisco will highlight how implementing a digitization strategy will enable Middle East countries and organizations to reap the full benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT).

GITEX offers an ideal platform for Cisco to showcase how digitization has the potential to create a sustainable and positive impact. Through our innovative technology, Cisco Middle East will highlight real-life, industry relevant scenarios that demonstrate how our technology solutions can help accelerate our clients’ digital transformation journey to help re-imagine their businesses.

We are looking forward to showcasing our latest technology offerings alongside our exclusive and strategic partner GBM, who will be participating as a sponsor at Cisco’s stand.

We look forward to seeing you all there at stand #Z-B40, Za'abeel Gulf Comms Hall. Cisco will also be in the Security and Network Hall, Hall 1 Stand B1-1 showcasing threat-centric security for the digital era.

Kind regards,

Shukri Eid
Managing Director, Cisco UAE and East Region

Demonstrations

This year at Gitex, Cisco will demonstrate key architectures and solutions across five key areas to incorporate how when integrated into real life scenarios, Cisco can enable the future of digitization.

Collaboration

Learn how you can build an agile organization and extend your business reach. We will demonstrate how Cisco Collaboration helps employees work better across boundaries without compromise — in every room, on every desk, and in every pocket. Video places people at the center of the collaboration experience. It empowers them to work together in new ways to transform business, accelerate innovation, and do more with less. It's next-generation interaction, where everyone, everywhere can be face-to-face and more effective.

Additionally, Cisco will be showcasing our integrated voice and collaboration, highlighting how real time communication is integral to business now more than ever before through Apple IOS Integration and real time conferencing.

 

Security

On our main stand, Cisco will demonstrate our rapid threat containment showing the integration between access later and perimeter security to offer customers automated response to network breaches. Furthermore, through Cisco’s Digital Network Architecture security solution, we will highlight the superior capabilities of Cisco's network to become part of a comprehensive security architecture, to leverage as a security sensor and enforcer. In addition, Security will exhibit Advanced Malware Protection and an ACI security demonstration that will show how closely Cisco architectures integrate together from the campus all the way to the datacenter to ensure customers have full control of their networks.

 

Enterprise Networking

The next era of networking has arrived - Our enterprise networking solutions help you innovate faster, simplify operations, and reduce risk. At Gitex, visit our stand to understand more about how out Cloud Managed IT solution, Cisco Meraki can impact your network, in addition to Cisco’s Wireless Service Assurance to expose issues within the infrastructure. Furthermore, within our Enterprise Networking solutions, Cisco will showcase its Connected Mobile Experience to improve customer experience by using real time data.

In collaboration with Philips, Cisco are including a digital ceiling solution, using light bulbs powered by Cisco switches to have more granular control over the energy and reduce total cost of ownership.

 

Big Data and Analytics

Cisco will feature several demonstrations outlining our key solutions within Big Data and Analytics including the launch of our Tetration platform in the UAE using insights into application behavior and Data Center forensics. Furthermore, in order to show how Cisco solutions impact the digitization of smart cities, Cisco will display data virtualization with primary examples within the Finance and Retail industries.

In alignment with Cisco’s solution based architectures, at Gitex Cisco will demonstrate how to secure your data center with Cisco’s ACI solution, integrated with primary security products. Finally, don’t miss the overview of Cisco’s Cloud Solutions including Cloud Center, MetaPod and our PASS solutions from Apprenda.
