Cisco designs and sells broad lines of products, provides services, and delivers integrated solutions to develop and connect networks around the world, building the Internet. As a global market leader in our industry, we help our customers connect, digitize, and thrive. Together, we change the way the world works, lives, plays, and learns.

For more than 30 years, we have helped our customers build networks, automate, orchestrate, integrate, and digitize information technology (IT)-based products and services. In an increasingly connected world, Cisco is helping lead the way by transforming businesses, governments, and cities worldwide with differentiated innovation.


For Cisco, this fits within our Country Digital Acceleration commitment aimed at working closely with key Dutch organizations to help enable and benefit from a digital Dutch future. The Port of Rotterdam asked the market to deliver a platform that could service their goal to become the first automated port. Cisco is proud to deliver an off the shelf solution based on unparalleled technologies to the Port.


Cisco’s role is to provide a secure data delivery platform that connects all the Port’s sensor data, synthesizes it, and delivers it where the port needs it in their effort to digitize and automate the port – essentially help making the Port become more efficient, achieve a competitive advantage and ultimately enable autonomous ships.


Cisco’s E-LAN, industrial routers and Kinetic (Cloud) Services technologies are being implemented on this project. These services provide an intent-based network for the Port.  With the complexity of the network, Cisco’s intent-based network with a high degree of automation handles this complexity and delivers data securely where and when it’s needed.
