Transforming education with intent-based networking

When the University of Northampton decided to relocate two existing campuses into a single, new campus, they needed a technology partner that could seamlessly meet their current network needs as well as enable their IT infrastructure to evolve with ever-changing needs. The university utilized Cisco products and solutions to design, personalize, provision, and manage the network as a single fabric.
