Innovation in Higher Education

Collaboration solutions are helping schools and universities lower education costs while increasing opportunities for teaching and learning. The Cisco Collaboration architecture takes a strategic approach, providing a comprehensive platform for more effective communication between teachers, students, administrators and the community at large.

With the proliferation of mobile devices and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) access, faculty and students can connect and learn on devices that are best suited to their individual styles. With new service delivery models like Hosted Collaboration, deploying these solutions is now easier than ever.
