Should Cyberjaya court Cisco?

Cyberjaya, dubbed Malaysia's intelligent city, is where the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC)--the agency tasked with developing and promoting the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC)--is housed.It's also where leading tech companies, local and foreign, are encouraged to house their R&D centers--although, currently, only a handful have done so.

I read with interest how Cisco Systems' plans to launch a business group, based in Bangalore, India, that will wire new buildings and even entirely new cities with state-of-the-art networking technology.

According to Cisco, a city "wired top-to-bottom with IP technology would be able to use it to manage infrastructure, such as traffic signals or surveillance cameras, while residents would be able to use it to access media content or control energy use in homes or office buildings".

Sounds exactly like the kind of thing Cyberjaya needs.
