Cisco Meraki for Schools

Improve your school’s connectivity and transform learning in & out of the classroom

Secure. Engaged. Connected.

Those are the goals for today’s learning environments. However, achieving this vision can pose challenges for IT departments, including:

  • Building reliable wireless coverage across the entire campus
  • Blocking unwanted web traffic and prioritising educational apps
  • Supporting the growth of BYOD and mobile learning initiatives
  • Centralising IoT detection, behavioural analysis, and threat visibility
  • Supporting multisite networks with a lean IT team

Making digital work in education is no longer a nice-to-have but a necessity to deliver quality learning outcomes. The Meraki portfolio of cloud managed solutions including networking, security, device management and smart cameras, are perfect for lean IT education teams looking to rapidly convert to digital environments.

 

Schools should transform their learning environments across three key areas:

1. Enhanced student experience

  • Provide reliable access to digital resources in and out of the classroom with always-on wireless coverage.
  • Block specific applications or put devices on single-app mode to ensure students are focused on the lesson.
  • Remotely deploy software, content, and applications to all, or to specific student devices.

2. Safe learning environment

  • Intercept unwanted web traffic and prioritise educational apps with content filtering and application control.
  • Ensure students’ physical safety at all times with cameras.
  • Optimise performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or privacy.

3. Streamlined device & network management

  • Unify management and control of multiple devices, including BYOD policies.
  • Troubleshoot network complications quickly and seamlessly.
  • Control all school-owned devices with complete visibility.

Does your school’s learning environment make the grade?

Transforming networking across the John XXIII College Campus

“Being able to easily identify and control traffic at the edge has allowed us to free up a considerable amount of bandwidth. The difference this makes to the end user experience is phenomenal. The improved network visibility and control has freed up ICT team capacity. Our help desk tickets have reduced by over 80% in relation to connectivity issues.”

Yugon Chobanoff, ICT Operations Manager, John XXIII College
