Cisco announced its tech deal with the National Football League (NFL) to jointly develop a Connected League platform.
Michelle McKenna, NFL Chief Information Officer, said. “In an increasingly digital world, speed, reliability and security are paramount to our success and we welcome the leadership Cisco will bring to the NFL for these key aspects and more.”
“The NFL shares our view that a connected world offers incredible opportunity, and we are excited to become an Official Technology Partner of the league,” said Chuck Robbins, Chairman and CEO at Cisco.
Currently, every NFL stadium’s replay control room is built on Cisco technology and connected back to the Art McNally Gameday Central in New York City via a Cisco network. In addition, nearly all of the league’s Official Partners and two-thirds of NFL stadiums rely on Cisco technology, including SoFi Stadium and State Farm Stadium, sites of the next two Super Bowls.
