Case Study: Talent Garden

Building a secure, scalable hub

Talent Garden, Europe’s largest network of digital innovation hubs, provides workspaces and support to companies at 23 campuses in eight countries. When the company wanted to expand by adding five campuses a year, it turned to Cisco Meraki security appliances, switches, and access points for a reliable and easily scalable network solution. By 2020, Talent Garden expects to grow its network from 300 to 800 access points.

Summary

Challenges

  • Provide a fast, stable, secure, and consistent network experience across 23 campuses.
  • Quickly pinpoint and resolve network issues and outages.
  • Introduce a scalable cloud solution to better accommodate growth.

Results

  • Improved network stability and performance at sites producing an average of 2TB of data daily.
  • Operates 300 managed access points with virtually no dedicated support.
  • Plans to add 500 new access points by 2020.
  • Can set up at a new campus in less than a week.

What they’re saying

"With scale at the forefront of my mind, it made me biased toward Meraki. I knew Cisco could handle our rapidly growing needs."
