Cisco launches digitalisation programme

Cisco launches digitalisation programme

Mr Taveewat (left) and Guy Diedrich, senior vice-president and global innovation officer at Cisco, address key focus areas of the CDA programme.

Cisco, a leading global tech company, is collaborating with the Thai government to accelerate digitalisation under the Country Digital Acceleration (CDA) programme by supporting technologies in relation to connected healthcare, smart city solutions, cybersecurity and 5G for enterprises.

“Technology is the power to drive more inclusive and equal opportunity to underserved population and community,” Dave West, Cisco’s senior vice-president, and president for Asia-Pacific, Japan and Greater China, said recently via a hybrid event to announce the collaboration.

The event was also attended by Digital Economy and Society Minister Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn.

Under the CDA, Cisco commits resources and expertise in partnership with global administrations to drive growth. Previously, Cisco’s Network Academy has trained over 65,000 students, with more than 6,700 currently enrolled in various network academy programmes.

“Our CDA programme is key in our efforts to support governments and businesses in achieving their economic and digitalisation goals as we recover from the global pandemic together. We are delighted to have the opportunity to introduce this programme in Thailand,” said Francine Katsoudas, executive vice-president and chief people, policy and purpose officer at Cisco.

Under the CDA programme, Cisco will support connected healthcare assistance as this is a critical priority area during the pandemic in which technology can help ensure quality healthcare for everyone regardless of location.

5G for Enterprises will help develop and test new 5G network solutions to bring more value to enterprises, and enhanced network experiences to customers.

Regarding smart cities and transportation, Cisco said it will contribute to Thailand’s socio-economic development with its industry-leading technologies that power the underlying infrastructure for smart city projects in Thailand.

Cisco’s cybersecurity training centre in Thailand will help upskill local talent in the sector and will build a resilient and sustainable cybersecurity framework for critical national infrastructure.

Taveewat Chantaraseno, managing director of Cisco Thailand, said the company has started a few pilot projects under the CDA programme over the past 2-3 months.

In the healthcare sector, the company capitalises on cloud technology and the Internet of Things to support vaccine distribution in field hospitals.

In the drive for smart cities, Cisco has technology that can analyse vehicles, traffic and commuters.

On the cybersecurity front, the company has set up cybersecurity academy training in the Eastern Economic Corridor area, while in 5G enterprise support Cisco has a mobility-based data centre, or data centre in containers, that can move around and support smart cities and smart campuses.

“We need private firms and technology to drive more use cases and leverage technology to drive innovation,” Mr Chaiwut said. “The CDA is a significant step in making our digital future a reality and in line with Thailand 4.0.”

Thailand aims to make the digital economy contribute 30% to the country’s GDP by 2030, he added.
