Cisco Pan Am Games Countdown Clock technology

It took about 30 minutes, five speeches and at least four Cirque du Soleil dancers to unveil Cisco’s Countdown Clock for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games, but the impact it creates should last a lot longer than that.

Beyond merely keeping Canada aware of the history-making multi-sport event as it gets closer to its July 10, 2015 start date, the Cisco Toronto 2015 Countdown Clock features an interactive touch-screen kiosk that provides visitors with games information, an app to take Pan Am selfies and fibre optic cable that would stretch higher than the CN Tower. In other words, it’s a great example of how technology can bring information together the way unified communications fosters collaboration among enterprise workers. If you’re a CIO, IT manager or network admin that wants to show how a converged network can support the future of exchanging data in what Cisco describes as an “Internet of Everything” era, it might be time to take a field trip to Nathan Phillips Square.
