(NASDAQ:PHUN) (the "Company"), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, announced today that Cisco Meraki will now feature the Company's pandemic response solutions for healthcare organizations and city officials in its Meraki Marketplace. Developed on Phunware's patented Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform, these mobile-first solutions have been designed to effectively address critical challenges brought on by a pandemic such as COVID-19.

Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO) acquired Meraki in 2012, and today, Cisco Meraki is a leader in cloud controlled WiFi, routing and security, all managed from a centralized dashboard. The Meraki Marketplace is an exclusive catalog of Technology Partners like Phunware that showcases applications developed on top of the Meraki platform, allowing customers and partners to view, demo and deploy commercial solutions.

"We developed MaaS to enable large corporations like Cisco to efficiently distribute our software globally for digital transformation initiatives in mobile environments," said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. "The Meraki Marketplace enables thousands of Cisco Meraki customers across more than 100 countries worldwide to easily purchase and deploy our solutions to optimize healthcare, government, corporate and higher education operations in a mobile-first world, including the tech-enablement of entire cities if and as needed, as the executives and leaders of these businesses and organizations address their pandemic-specific needs."
