Cisco and Digicel, a major telecommunication services provider in the Caribbean, have signed a Caribbean Countries Digitization Agreement outlining their objectives and strategic plans to accelerate digitization for 26 countries in the Caribbean and Central America.

Under the Frame Agreement, the two companies will develop a digitization vision for each country for both the immediate and the long term, defining areas for implementation and specific projects, such as Healthcare/Telemedicine, Smart Cities, and Connected Schools, as well as to develop an educational strategy. The goal is to create a pipeline of projects for the future, including infrastructure enhancement and island recovery.

“Digitization is a key driver for economic development in any country,” said Alison Gleeson, Cisco’s Senior Vice President of the Americas. “Through this partnership with Digicel, our goal is to grow GDP, create new jobs and invest in a sustainable innovation ecosystem across public and private sectors in the Caribbean and Central America,”

The initial list of targeted countries includes: Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Aruba, Barbados, Bermuda, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Dominica, El Salvador, French West Indies, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Panama, Saint Lucia, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago and the Turks & Caicos Islands.

Digicel operates in 32 markets throughout the Caribbean, Central America, and Asia Pacific, and has been a long-time authorized Cisco reseller.
