Cisco highlights success of Expo 2020 digital experience

3 million users connected to the comapny's Wi-Fi network

US-based tech company, Cisco, revealed infrastructure data for the first five months of Expo 2020.

The data highlights Cisco’s technological success in collaboration with organizers and other partners at Expo.

Staff, visitors, and exhibitors across Dubai Exhibition Centre, three designated zones, and more than 200 pavilions, parks, and plazas.

The report shows that close to 3 million users connected to the Wi-Fi network during the first five months of the event.

Additionally, the highest number of connected users fell on March 5th, when more than 277,000 people connected to the network.

Also, every day, over 5,000 Expo employees, media personnel, volunteers, and contractors used the Expo workforce network.

Moreover, with over 500 screens throughout the site, the deployment of “Cisco Vision” screens resulted in streaming over 230,000 minutes of dynamic signage, high-definition digital content, and video.

“Cisco Vision” also helped deliver information and experiences with over 1,520 hours of nonstop live streaming content from various stages like Al Wasl, Jubliee, and Dubai Millennium amphitheater, among others.

In addition, over 500 retail units, from merchandise stores to food and beverage vendors, have been connected across the Expo site. This helped enable payments and invoicing services.

Expo 2020  will soon transform into District 2020, a sustainable, human-centric, smart city that is expected to reuse around 80 percent of the infrastructure built for the Expo.
