The Platform

The Australian Scout Jamboree is the biggest event in the Australian scouting calendar and this year the 22nd Australian Jamboree, was the largest since Australia hosted the World Jamboree in 1988. Around 12,000 scouts, leaders and volunteers converged from all points of the country and the globe at Cataract Scout Park in New South Wales, Australia to camp for two weeks of fun, adventure and friendship.

This year Cisco Australia and New Zealand supported the vision for a digital jamboree, setting a new standard for jamborees with an integrated technology platform that enabled attendees to stay connected and share their experiences with family and friends as well as scouting communities around Australia and abroad.

The vision of the Australian Jamboree organizers combined with the intelligent wired and wireless  networking technology provided by Cisco, worked to create a number of world firsts for the Australian Scout Jamboree, including:
