Cisco Campus & IoT and Industry District

New this year, the Cisco Campus will be split between two locations: the main Cisco Campus and the IoT and Industry District. Immerse yourself in Cisco’s solutions, products, services, and technologies by visiting product technology zones in the Cisco Campus and digital industries in the IoT and Industry District. Both locations will be full of learning opportunities, one-on-one discussions, and interactive activities.


Also new this year, the Network Operations Center (NOC) will be located in the heart of the Cisco Campus to provide a first-hand look at what it takes to deploy, maintain, and secure the enterprise-class network that runs Cisco Live.
