In order to strengthen even more the partnership with Cisco, Orbcom was present at the Cisco Connect 2015 held on the 25th of February at the Estoril Congress Center. Cisco Connect 2015 combined live presentations and demos using Fast IT, the new operating model for the IOE era, and all the technologies that support it: Cloud, mobility, collaboration, wireless, security and big data.

The event featured presentations by Sofia Tenreiro, the new General Manager of Cisco Portugal, Faiyaz Shahpurwala, Senior Vice President, Cloud Infrastructure and Managed Services Organization at Cisco, Boaz Maoz, Managing Director of Cisco Israel, Carlos Alves Duarte, Executive Director of PT Portugal Gonçalo Oliveira, CIO of Galp, Jaime Quesado, President of ESPAP, João Pedro Silva, CIO of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Manuel Ramalho Eanes, NOS Administrator and finally António Mexia, CEO of EDP.

In addition to the presentations, there was a vast exhibition area with technical demonstrations of Cisco solutions in the areas of Collaboration, Enterprise Networking, Data Center, Cloud and Security. Orbcom's stand focused on Cisco collaboration solutions, presenting visitors to the Cisco MX300 solution, a solution used internally in all Orbcom offices.

The exhibition was a success, not only considering the high number of visitors, but also due to the interaction of visitors with the companies present in the exhibition areas. The live technical demonstrations grabbed the attention of the visitors and allowed exhibitors to present solutions in real time, showing the features and benefits of Cisco products.
