With always-on connectivity, superior campus security, and the access students demand, higher education institutions can attract and retain students in an evolving competitive landscape. In order for campus leaders and IT teams to build unique and differentiated programs that will improve student experiences, a reliable network foundation is required. Cisco Meraki provides colleges and universities with the power, flexibility, and control they need to keep campuses connected and secure, while providing students with the connectivity and digital resources they expect.
From move in to graduation day, students require reliable connectivity to be successful. Ensure students have the best experience with robust, high-density Wi-Fi, no matter where they are on campus.
By integrating endpoint, network, and physical security, Meraki helps create safe campus environments that empower students to focus on learning and professors to focus on teaching.
