Cisco reached out to Digital Kitchen to help promote their Intellegent Network services. Of the many possible narratives that Cisco has been involved in, this piece focused on Cisco's revamp of the Port of Hamburg.

In order to be proactive with its traffic control systems, the Hamburg Port Authority needed a reliable, secure, and integrated network. Four networks consolidated into one, to develop a fiber-optic backbone. And a broader network throughout the port, supporting 300 sensors for roadways and for incoming ship traffic. The Cisco intelligent network helps port operations run smoothly without disrupting the daily life of Hamburg residents.

Bringing on Tim Tomkinson to help illustrate key frame artwork to animate behind the live footage, DK was able to craft a smart advert highlighting what is possible with Cisco systems.
