ICC London ExCeL Chooses Cisco’s Collaboration Technology

On Tuesday, Cisco announced that ICC London ExCeL, an international convention center, chose Cisco to provide network-based technologies to enhance the experience for the center’s audience. Cisco’s products will enable the ICC London ExCeL to provide interactive collaboration services so that attendees will be more involved in the events. This will increase customer satisfaction and overall revenue for the venue’s exhibitors.

ICC London ExCeL will use Cisco’s network as the platform. Many new features will be brought to the center, including web conferencing, video collaboration, and digital signage. Exhibitors will be able to reach their audiences in a whole new way with this innovative Cisco technology. This will increase return on investment (ROI) and the quality of exhibitor-to-customer interactions.


ICC London ExCeL deployed a network within their entire venue with Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches, an integrated collaboration solution. This will support wireless local area network (WLAN), voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), data, and IPTV services. High definition video and mobility will also be supported by the Cisco network. Exhibitors will be able to reach out to people all around the world, without them having to attend the convention center, through the Cisco TelePresence collaboration solution. This addition of Cisco technologies to the convention center will also reduce logistical overheads.

Amanda Jobbins, the Vice President of European Marketing at Cisco, said, “Collaboration is not only driving a new wave of growth, productivity and innovation in and between companies, employees and customers but also transforming the way business is conducted at all levels. Network-based technologies are radically changing the way we participate in events, both in person and virtually, helping exhibitors gain new levels of interest and engagement from their key audiences. ICC London ExCeL is setting itself apart as a particularly innovative venue for conferences and exhibitions.”


Cisco will even be holding Cisco Live! At the ICC London ExCeL venue. This annual Cisco event for European Internet Technology, networking, and communication technology will go on from Jan. 31, 2011 to Feb. 3, 2011.
