McLaren Racing and Cisco have announced a multiyear global partnership expanding Cisco’s role with the Formula 1 team to become an official technology partner. Through the partnership, the two organisations will leverage Cisco’s solutions, innovation and expertise to enhance McLaren’s technological infrastructure on race day and at the team’s headquarters, as well as to connect with fans around the world.

With the expanded relationship, McLaren will have access to Cisco’s full portfolio of solutions – across enterprise networking, wi-fi, digital signage, collaboration and more.

As part of the partnership, Cisco will explore and pilot new and emerging technologies, such as working towards upgrading their raceday wireless deployment to wi-fi 6E (extended), to ensure fast and reliable communications among all team members. Wi-fi 6E offers more than twice the bandwidth of wi-fi 6, the current standard solution, and is purpose-built to deliver reliable, secure and fast connectivity in flexible, remote locations. In addition, both organisations will continue to work together to develop the networking technology infrastructure at the team’s headquarters in Surrey – the McLaren Technology Centre. Cisco’s hybrid network solutions and cloud-based service DNA Spaces will allow the organisation to optimise productivity.

The announcement builds upon an existing relationship between McLaren Racing and Webex by Cisco, the official collaboration partner of the F1 team. Over the past year, Webex’s suite of cloud-based collaboration tools and emerging technology solutions, like Webex Hologram, have enabled McLaren to overcome geographical boundaries to create virtual experiences that bring fans and partners even closer to the action and enable immersive co-creation between design engineers, drivers and crews from tracks around the world. The expanded partnership will see McLaren Racing continue to leverage Webex to implement flexible and secure hybrid working environments, while also creating even more opportunities for fans around the world to connect with the team throughout the 2022 Formula 1 season.
