Cisco Conducts Virtual Opening of NASDAQ

Cisco Systems conducted a first-of-its-kind virtual opening of NASDAQ from its headquarters in San Jose, California.

Cisco and NASDAQ re-created the MarketSite studio in New York, including a replica blue video wall and electronic podium, to mirror the NASDAQ opening and closing bell ceremonies. Using a high-speed, dual-path private IP network, data was routed from NASDAQ's New York MarketSite to Cisco's Silicon Valley virtual MarketSite, where display servers processed and formatted real-time ticker and price quote information. Data was displayed on a video wall consisting of 32 monitors. The ceremony was simultaneously broadcast live on the NASDAQ Tower in New York.
