Cisco, together with industry partners and Sirca, announced the formation of the Cisco Internet of Everything (IoE) Innovation Centre at the Cisco Live event in Melbourne today (18 March 2015). 

The Centre will bring together Cisco experts, Australian researchers and start-ups, to develop proof of concepts, features and functionalities and rapid prototyping for the IoE. The Centre includes dedicated space to demonstrate IoE in action and open areas where customers, startups, open communities, researchers, entrepreneurs and technology enthusiasts are invited to work and brainstorm on new ideas and technologies.

Dr. Michael Briers, CEO Sirca said: “Sirca’s involvement in the Centre is an important opportunity to work with global leaders such as Cisco, as well as other partners to develop solutions for the knowledge economy. We have a proven track record in handling very large data sets and providing data analysis for organizations to enable better visibility and decision support.”

"The Centre will also be an opportunity for our 40 member universities and their world class researchers to work with industry partners and start-ups on some of the major challenges that we believe can be addressed through technology and the Internet of Everything." 

The official opening of the Centre is planned for 2015 and will include locations in Sydney at Sirca, and in Perth at Curtin University.
