Inspire learning and connect your campus to enhance student outcomes.

Redefine education

Education is changing. Students are no longer confined by traditional learning environments. They’re learning from anywhere, on any device, in ways that reimagine what’s possible. Teachers and researchers are innovating faster than ever. You need a trusted partner with the expertise to bring your school’s vision to life. Cisco can help.

Why Cisco

Towards Education of the Future

Digitisation is impacting all industries and economies in fundamental ways. It’s forcing companies, institutions and governments to re-think business and operating models and re-evaluate where future competitive advantage will come from. The convening of the Digital Summits at Cisco Live 2019 in Melbourne, was recognition that while these changes manifest differently in various industry sectors, the core technology enablers are common. This report, jointly produced by KPMG and Cisco, synthesises the rich discussions in the education track of the Digital Summits. It also includes practical examples of how organisations are responding to the opportunities presented by digitisation.

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.

is for the digital era.
