Cisco Live EMEA is just days away, and we can’t wait to meet customers, partners and peers at the Digital Communities space!

For those of you that are new to Cisco Live, the event brings together thousands of technology professionals from around the world to share ideas, sharpen their expertise, and get inspired. At Cisco Live, there will be more than 600 educational sessions and numerous Cisco and partner sponsored demonstrations which all offer a unique opportunity to acquire cutting-edge knowledge and skills on the technologies you already use, and those that you will rely on in the future to achieve digital transformation.

If you’re joining us in Berlin at this year’s Cisco Live EMEA, be sure to stop by the Digital Communities area in hall 4.2 of the World of Solutions to experience our public safety, smart cities & communities and education demonstrations.

In the public safety space, we’ll have a number of experts and partners on hand to explain how digital transformation is profoundly changing business and government priorities. For those visiting the booth, we welcome the opportunity to discuss how Cisco and our partners can deliver safer communities and countries in a digital era by providing a digital architecture that’s the foundation to connect people, process, data and things together.

We are very excited to be joined in Berlin by BlueLine Grid and Klas Telecom, as well as other key partners.

We’ll be demonstrating BlueLine Grid’s critical collaboration platform, which enables government agencies, corporate security and emergency teams to share information in a secure, compliant and timely manner.

We’re also demoing mobile emergency response from Klas Telecom (Klas), which specializes in providing first responders with broadband data, location-based services, and rich collaboration on a network that can support critical communication.

In the smart cities and communities space, we’ll be showcasing our Smart+Connected Digital Platform, which aggregates and organizes data from city infrastructure sensors and other data sources in an easy-to-use format while enabling a multitude of use cases across the community. This integrated platform can help cities and communities improve service delivery, cut operational costs, better coordinate emergency response, promote environmental sustainability, ensure economic vitality, and much more.

We’ll also share live demonstrations of our Smart+Connected lighting, parking, urban mobility and safety and security solutions.

For municipalities, street lighting is an essential maintenance effort to help improve public safety and the overall community experience, influencing a city’s ability to create a lasting environment for residents’ happiness, business and tourism. Unfortunately, community lighting is also a major energy and cost drain. Our lighting demo will feature our work with strategic partners, like Tvilight, to turn city streets into powerful light sensory networks that can help leaders to proactively manage and lower energy consumption, cut costs, and simplify maintenance.

The search for a parking space is not only terribly frustrating; it is also a major contributor to traffic congestion and carbon emissions. Come by to see how our parking solution can link drivers to parking availability and payment options in real time, enable law enforcement agencies to more efficiently catch violators, help reduce traffic congestion, and open new opportunities for increasing highly profitable revenue streams.

Preventing crime is vital to developing vibrant and safe communities. With our Smart+Connected Safety and Security solution, see how you can better manage public safety threats and emergencies to deliver mission-critical value in new ways.

As urban population centers grow, so does the demand on transportation infrastructure and the concept of accessibility. In the space, we’ll demonstrate aspects of our urban mobility offering that can help city leaders manage the commuter shift to public transit and transform services like waste collection to be on demand rather than inefficiently cadenced.

In the education space, we’ll be demonstrating how our solutions help inspire learning for improved student outcomes and enable intelligent campuses for better student and faculty experiences.

Our featured Digital Education Platform transforms campuses and enables digital learning and collaborative research by integrating solutions, services, and partner capabilities, all in a safe and productive digital environment.

In the space, we’ll also be showcasing our Spark and WebEx integration with leading Learning Management Systems (LMSs), which expands the opportunities for learning from any device, anywhere, any time.
