Brazil : Cisco Opens Center of Innovation in Brazil to Develop Technology Solutions Specifically Tailored to Local Needs [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The center will foster innovation, transformation and socio-economic development, expanding Cisco's presence in the country and highlighting the importance of investments in information and communications technology for the country's growth and competitiveness.
Cisco today announced the opening of a Center of Innovation in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Center of Innovation, or COI, will integrate Cisco s portfolio with technology from local players to create solutions that meet the needs of the Brazilian market. The Center of Innovation is part of the investments package announced last year in Brazil.
The COI will be a key resource for Cisco as it creates long-lasting relationships with the Brazilian government and customers and works with them to identify their needs and provide solutions that support their success.
The Rio Cisco COI will initially focus on developing local solutions for key markets that are relevant for Brazil, including education, urban development (Cisco Smart+Connected Communities ), sports and entertainment, public safety and security, health care, smart grid, and oil and gas.
Education Technology has the potential to increase access to education as well as improve teacher training and student learning, one of the main challenges for Brazil.
Urban Development The Cisco Rio COI will support the efforts of Cisco's global Smart+Connected Communities in Brazil, which aim to implement Cisco technologies via a service-delivery platform to enhance access to Internet-based services, spur economic development, and reduce the cost of government operations.
Sports and Entertainment The Cisco Rio COI will look to support Brazil s preparations for the World Cup and Olympic Games, developing solutions to serve the unique needs of the country, using Cisco Connected Sports solutions. These solutions are focused on transforming the nature of sports and entertainment experiences through network-based innovation.
Public Safety and Security The Cisco Rio COI will use Cisco s open platform for security solutions. Through Cisco s ecosystems of partners, Cisco intends to help customers in the public and private sectors to protect the general population and optimize the resources used to respond to situations, improving precision and timeliness.
Health Care The shortage of medical specialists in certain regions, the rising costs of health care, and the growing proportion of people with chronic diseases are some of the challenges faced by health care providers in Brazil.
Smart Grid Worldwide, electric utilities face the challenge of modernizing an obsolete and aging infrastructure to support the delivery of a more reliable and efficient service. Cisco and its partners are helping the energy industry to modernize the electric grid generation, distribution and consumption with highly secure, reliable and scalable communication solutions.
