STAFF REPORTER

Cisco, a global leader in IT and networking yesterday launched ‘Cisco Start’- a simple, secured tailored made networking solution to fit for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and build their digital foundation in Bangladesh.  

 The launching ceremony took place at a city hotel in the capital yesterday.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, President of Cisco India and SAARC Sameer Garde said that the launch of ‘Cisco Start’ demonstrates the commitment to accelerate digitisation of SMBs in Bangladesh.  

“SMBs, contributed 99 per cent of private sector industrial establishments and employ 70–80 per cent of the nonagricultural labour force. With Cisco Start, SMBs now have access to digital technologies that can help them digitise and secure their business in the digital era”, he said.  

“We want Bangladesh to be ahead of the digital curve, and take advantage of the opportunities it presents.” Garde added.   

When journalists questioned about the opportunities in Bangladesh, Garde answered and said that the market size of Information and Communication Technolgy (ICT) industry in Bangladesh is approximately a billion dollar and the growth rate is 12-14 per cent year on year.

High-speed broadband coverage, rising adoption of mobile devices, proliferation of data, improving quality of connectivity as well as the expansion of logistics services and networks are breaking the geographical market barriers for businesses in Bangladesh and opening up new opportunities, he also said.   

Cisco recognises the SMB market in Bangladesh as a critical industry, which will accelerate Bangladesh’s digitisation and create immense opportunities for economic competitiveness and employment, he said.
