Case Study: University of North Carolina at Pembroke

Changing lives through education technology

The University of North Carolina at Pembroke has one of the most diverse campuses in the southeastern United States, with a large number of students attending remotely. With Cisco, they built a secure end-to-end infrastructure with wireless access and endpoints in every classroom to help students overcome geographic and economic barriers.



  • Disparate solutions relied on the use of personal technology accounts
  • Limited tools did not always meet the needs of students who commute or attend at a distance
  • Many students had limited access to resources for learning


  • An end-to-end, enterprise-class infrastructure, providing necessary educational support
  • Expanded access to collaborative learning for all students both in and out of the classroom
  • Dependable security to protect university systems and those who use them
