LIVE! from San Jose, California: The First Ever Virtual Opening of NASDAQ

August 10, 2005

Cisco & NASDAQ Event PhotoToday will mark the first time in 34 years that The NASDAQ Stock Market will conduct opening and closing ceremonies from outside New York. Three thousand miles away at Cisco Systems' San Jose, California headquarters, Cisco and NASDAQ have recreated the MarketSite including a replica blue video wall and electronic podium to mirror the NASDAQ opening and closing bell ceremonies. Cisco CEO, John Chambers, along with 2000 Cisco employees, will ring the bell to signal the start of trading from a "virtual" control center, complete with NASDAQ's famous video wall that provides trading updates throughout the day.

This historic event is made possible thanks to a dual path, secure, private, IP-network. Cisco's Internet protocol (IP) networking equipment and software will be transmitting NASDAQ trading information from New York to San Jose, highlighting the benefits of virtualization and IP technology for businesses and society. The virtual open event caps off a year of commemoration marking Cisco's 20 years history of giving back to the community, technology innovation and industry leadership.
