Peter Dinklage is perhaps best known for his role as Game of Thrones' intelligent and witty tactician Tyrion Lannister, but Cisco has recruited the actor to take on a very different role in its latest spot.

The brand's 'The Network. Intuitive. Explained' ad seeks to unpack the computing firm's "intent-based network" solutions which allow clients to speed up their digital operations.

The cinematic two-and-a-half-minute film shows Dinklage boldly wandering through the streets of London describing how simple the new network is as he contemplates the hyper-connected world around him.

The spot was created by Ogilvy, which won the business in May of this year.
