Fast, reliable, and secure network connectivity — from the classroom to the halls of residence
Cisco Meraki offers higher education institutions the power, flexibility, and control they need to keep campuses connected and secure. The intuitive, cloud-based dashboard includes features such as advanced network analytics, programmability with APIs, and robust threat prevention, enabling customers to save time, reduce operating costs, and enhance student experiences.
High Density, without the High Maintenance
Meraki access points are designed to deliver superior performance in the highest density wireless environments such as auditoriums and lecture halls — without the bottleneck of hardware controllers.
- Crowd-proficient WiFi that deploys in minutes
- Support any student device without compromising network performance or security.
- Reduce RF interference in congested areas with a dedicated scanning radio that proactively tunes channels and radio power to optimize performance.
- Steer clients to faster, less congested 5GHz channels and improve roaming performance by setting minimum bitrates.
Keep students and faculty safe
Meraki makes it easy to protect users, services, and the campus by unifying security and network management across all layers of a deployment. Ensure that students and faculty are always safe — whether in a lecture, dorm, or simply strolling around campus.
- Protect the network and its users from one intuitive interface: trace connected devices to an access point to a switch port in one fluid motion.
- Enable threat protection at the flip of a switch and block unwanted software before it ever reaches the network.
- Thief on campus? MV security cameras with Motion Search make it easier than ever to retroactively select areas of importance and identify the culprit without ever hitting the fast forward button.
- Thwart suspicious activity such as wireless SSID spoofing with built-in intrusion detection and an always-on scanning radio.
- How busy is the dining hall? Improve student services, staffing and branding with built-in wireless analytics that help to understand foot traffic and client behavior across the entire campus
- Create engaging student experiences such as helping a student locate their classrooms from your mobile app with our bluetooth and wireless APIs
- Leverage a vast developer and technology partner ecosystem to create a truly unique experience for students, faculty and visitors alike
- Purpose-built in room access points make connecting students in residence halls and dormitories easy, cost effective and fast.
- Campus-wide group policies for everything from dorms to classrooms and students to faculty
- Content filtering, logging, alerting and insights managed in a powerful and comprehensive security center
- Port security and wired access policies with 802.1x, MAC-authentication and MAC-sticky configuration options
- Device fingerprinting and application-level historical reporting let you identify bandwidth or network abusers before they impact productivity
- Support for industry-leading network access (NAC) solutions
Meraki is one of the best technology decisions I’ve made in over 30 years.
