Cisco 'The Last Traffic Jam' by Goodby Silverstein & Partners

Networking giant asks viewers to imagine a world without traffic jams in the Internet of Everything future

Cisco Systems touts the Internet of Everything (IoE) in its new "Building Tomorrow Today," campaign by Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

The spot asks viewers to imagine the traffic jam, which is a "polluter, frustrator, time-thief," as nothing more than a museum relic, in the IoE future being developed by Cisco. 

This is the first of a series of videos covering other "last" scenarios such as "the last product recall."
