The IT giant has teamed up with Wildgoose Events to create an app showcasing the brand’s 'Internet of Everything' concept to its corporate clients during the Commonwealth Games. As the Games’ official network infrastructure supporter, Phil Smith, Cisco CEO UK and Ireland, highlighted the event as "the perfect stage for us to showcase the Internet of Everything and what we can make possible to our customers and partners."
