Over the next few months, schools and libraries will be vying for a slice of government-issued E-Rate funding. E-Rate is a program which allocates funds for schools and libraries to obtain and install Internet/telecommunications and internal Internet access.
Designing a Network for the Future of Learning
The Cisco Meraki cloud managed solution is uniquely suited to meet the growing needs and demands of a continually evolving digital classroom. Meraki provides complete visibility into network usage, support for challenging, high-density environments, CIPA compliant network security, and much more. Making changes to configuration settings on local or highly remote network devices takes just a few mouse clicks through the Meraki dashboard. With Meraki, you can adapt your network on the fly for every need and, because of the unique cloud-management style, any new update or feature release is automatically pushed to customer networks, thus future-proofing the network deployment and providing a high performance network for evolving needs.
All Cisco Meraki hardware and most licenses are eligible for E-Rate funding as of the Funding Year 2015 Eligible Services List.
