Our Manifesto

In 2016, the eyes of the world will look toward Rio during the Summer Olympics; records will be broken and memories made, all with the help of the Cisco network.

And, long after the stadiums have emptied, Cisco will remain to help build a better future for Brazil.

We’re connecting communities to better education and pairing students and teachers through the latest technology.

We’re helping train a new generation of technology professionals.

And, we’re connecting business leaders to the Internet of Everything, helping them reinvent their businesses to achieve the unimaginable.

Cisco is a proud supporter of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and an even prouder supporter of the years following.
