Cisco, San Francisco team up in green tech effort
Cisco Systems and the City of San Francisco are looking to technology to battle climate change. San Francisco is one of three cities initially selected by the San Jose-based networking giant to take part in its Connected Urban Development Initiative. Cisco is deploying expertise, equipment and research to Seoul, Amsterdam and San Francisco for the $15 million, five-year program. The Connected Urban Development Initiative will develop ways to use information and communication technology to reduce carbon emissions while fostering economic growth. The initial stage of the project, which kicked off in late 2006, will culminate in a meeting of the three cities’ mayors in San Francisco on Feb. 21-22, 2008.
