About the CISCO House
"Cisco House is a building designed to showcase fresh thinking in terms of new business and service models. Cisco's UK and Ireland CEO Phil Smith details, "the space would perfectly demonstrate Cisco's brand identity and the focus of Cisco House
is not on what Cisco makes, but what we make possible." It will be open for five months from April 2012 and is expected to greet more than 11,000 guests.
Cisco House sits on the roof of the Westfield Stratford shopping centre, Europe's largest shopping mall, so as you can imagine the view over the Olympic Village is spectacular. When walking into the space it showcases modern technology, innovation, simplicity, design and uniqueness. On the ground floor there are touchscreens displaying Cisco case studies, kinetic technology where you can try on items of clothing from local retail stores and Cisco's own TelePresence technology all on show. It was a real eye opener in terms of how far Cisco is redesigning technology for our long-term futures. All these touchpoints are truly delivering on Cisco's core values of being Collaborative, Innovative and Inclusive."
