A new era of
networking for education.

The Network. Intuitive.

Explore Cisco’s intent-based networking

Imagine a network that understands intent and dynamically takes action to power digital initiatives that fuel student achievement.

This is a network that offers the visibility and contextual insights you need to stay ahead of digital learning trends, innovations, and cyber attacks.

A network that monitors access and verifies all data to identify and catch any malicious behaviors before security breaches put student data at risk.

That’s intent-based networking.

See how it works 

It’s constantly learning.

The new network is always studying, even when school isn’t in session. It collects and analyzes network data to help improve performance.

The new network turns data into insights so you can personalize learning, facilitate collaboration, improve sustainability, or optimize IT service levels.

See adaptability 

It’s constantly adapting.

The new network keeps up with the speed, scale, and complexity of innovation. It simplifies, automates, and accelerates improvement.

Whether you’re deploying applications, integrating a learning management system, or opening new buildings, the network optimizes student and staff experiences.

See security 

It’s constantly protecting.

From edge to cloud, the new network guards against threats to students, research, and critical data. It’s constantly protecting, even against encrypted attacks.

It counters security breaches before they impact your bottom line, your school’s reputation, and ultimately student and faculty achievement.
