Among the topics to be addressed during Gitex Cairo are security issues, creating a virtual private network, demonstrations of Cisco's Customer Interactive Suite and wireless solutions," said Jeremy Santiago, marcom specialist for Cisco's Middle East region.
In addition, Cisco hopes to introduce 'e-learning' to Gitex Cairo visitors and actively encourage continued use of the Internet in Egypt, which has significant market potential.
