Since we launched the Cisco Digital Ceiling framework earlier this year, we have made a lot of progress in the market. We also got a lot of great feedback from the TechWise documentary ‘Let there be networked light’. With several of our wave 1 partners, we installed network powered lighting capabilities in campus and education environments. Tony Shakib’s Blog of April 2016 talks about that in particular.
