Cisco Expands in Central London

Cisco inaugurated a new Central London office located at 10 Finsbury Square, just south of Silicon Roundabout in Tech City.  The office will host over 300 cloud technology professionals.

Cisco said the new London location is in addition to the Finsbury Circus office that was opened in 2009, and will house a major part of its growing base of cloud-based technology division focused on mobility and security, which includes Meraki Networks.

Beyond its two Central London offices the UK business houses around 5,000 people in corporate, sales and technical functions across 14 locations, including Manchester, Edinburgh and Chandler’s Ford, with the 267,000 sq ft Bedfont Lakes (Feltham) site Cisco’s UK HQ.

  • In July 2015, Cisco committed to investing $1 billion to accelerate UK digital economic growth through multiple projects over three to five years. These included investments in education and skills initiatives, a major extension of Cisco’s British Innovation Gateway programme, and $150m of venture capital investments in Internet of Everything UK start-ups.
