Cisco has opened a new regional headquarters in Singapore to celebrate its 20th anniversary of doing business in the island country.
The new facility houses Cisco’s marketing, sales, human resources, finance and support services operations for Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region, the company said Wednesday.
“Singapore stands out as a shining model in the world of what can be achieved by an economy through information and communications technologies,” said Gary Moore, Cisco president and chief operating officer
“Singapore’s vision is very much aligned with Cisco’s especially when it comes to Internet and education, two of the great equalizers in life,” he added.
Located at Changi Business Park, the office consolidates Cisco’s four offices across the country and brings all 1,000 employees together.
It uses many green features and has a customer briefing center to host demonstration and proof-of-concept activities for the company’s latest technologies and solutions.
Over the years, the company has introduced networking technologies, such as the country’s first Internet Home, and helped develop skills training by partnering with several academic institutions.
