Considered that there are too many projects and formats in which providers like Cisco networks or servers can participate.

“The reforms are going in the direction of creating more coverage. We see that companies and the authorities are going in that direction and we go over there,” he said.

“We believe that the reform goes in pursuit of the goal of increasing broadband penetration in the country. The goal is to advance, but each country does in its own priority, we believe that this will grow attained reforms forward,” said Velasco , in press conference during startup Cisco Live event in Cancun, Quintana Roo.

Rogelio Velasco revealed that Cisco is in talks to make new contracts for network deployment in both the business sector and in the government.

Velasco sees progress in telecommunications framed in the recent reform of the sector but noted that goes to a lower speed when compared with countries like Chile or Argentina.

“Everyone is looking forward to this aspect of connectivity, but depends on the priority of the countries as they do. There are those who are in a position to put technology and education at par but for other governments do not. At Cisco we are excited about what has been achieved in reforms,” he said.
