According to the IT provider Cisco, the German economy is doing better than is often assumed when it comes to digitization. “I think it’s too pessimistic to claim that we slept through digitization. If we slept through it like that, many German world market leaders would no longer exist,” said Cisco Germany boss Uwe Peter at the Hanover Fair.
Rapid migration to Wi-Fi 6
The innovative power of German companies is unbroken. In addition, the German industry is currently converting “at the speed of light” to the faster WLAN standard Wi-Fi 6. “We don’t see that anywhere else in the world as Cisco,” said Peter.
The manager admitted, however, that many in Germany find it difficult to set up digital business models and services. “In Germany, there is a lack of basic digital education. I would like to see IT taught at school alongside physics and biology,” said Peter. When he flies to the USA, he is always surprised: “When I get in, everyone has a car newspaper in their hands. When I fly back, everyone has a computer newspaper in their hands. Americans think differently – and that enables other innovations.”
