And the DELFIN Goes To…

Magyar Telekom Awards Cisco for Sustainability

True to its tradition, each year Magyar Telekom recognises suppliers that play an outstanding role in the field of sustainability. The DELFIN — Award (the title of which is the acronym of the Hungarian equivalents of Award for a Committed, Sustainable, and Innovative Generation) has been awarded for the fourth time in four categories.

Cisco Hungary won the award in the “Innovation for Sustainability” category, recognizing Cisco’s collaboration in creating Magyar Telekom’s VideoGate service, which is based on Cisco TelePresence technology.

VideoGate enables businesses to carry out intercompany video conferences over the Internet. Thus, it helps save time and costs of travel, whilst at the same time it provides a competitive advantage for users. Cisco also provided free-of-charge web applications to help calculate a company’s CO2 footprint.
