[PODCAST] All aboard! MACRO returns for a brand new episode

August 23, 2018

This month, we’re travelling by train to explore an innovation project aimed at making rail journeys a more connected, pleasant, and productive experience.

We take a deep dive into Project SWIFT, speaking with the engineers, academics, and entrepreneurs involved with making Cisco’s connected train initiative such a resounding success.

Follow the story from the initial pitch competition phase, through snowstorms and landslides in the test phase, and ultimately to the point at which rail operators decide to take the technology on as a permanent fixture for their journeys.

MACRO is a new podcast from the Innovation team at Cisco that takes a closer look at the technologies changing the world – and changing it for the better.
