#052 – Cisco’s Drone Program with Biren Gandhi

In Podcast by Ian Smith


This is how a business with nearly $50 billion in revenue views drone technology. Cisco is a publicly-traded network equipment company, but its reach extends much farther beyond just servers and wireless access points.

Biren Gandhi is a Distinguished Strategist in Cisco’s Corporate Strategy Office, focused on identifying key technology trends and accelerating their adoption through acquisitions, development or partnering. And he’s got his eye on drones. Biren and Ian discuss the future of connected drones and how these flying robots could essentially be boiled down to IoT devices which will soon be networked within a blockchain and participating in a fog computing economy.

Biren Gandhi will be presenting at Drone World Expo on October 3-4 in San Jose, CA.
