Simple, Powerful Networking Technology for K-12

Cisco Meraki cloud-managed technology provides complete network visibility and control – no hardware controllers or overlay software required. Configurations and management are easily performed remotely or on-site, while troubleshooting can be done in a fraction of the time with advanced networking analytics, allowing you to focus on more impactful projects.

Simplify Network and SaaS Troubleshooting

With end-to-end network intelligence through Meraki SM, the Meraki dashboard, Wireless Health, and Meraki Insight, you can easily identify network problems from the end-point to the application server, in a fraction of the time it normally takes to troubleshoot.

Provide the best experience for students and teachers with a holistic view of what is contributing to the end-user’s network slow-down, whether it’s the iPad, cloud application, or state testing site, leading to a faster time to resolution.

Safe and Secure Learning Environments

With content filtering, application control, and SD-WAN capabilities on the Meraki MX security appliance, reduce operational costs, simplify multi-site deployments, and use bandwidth more efficiently to ensure optimal performance for critical applications without sacrificing security or data privacy.

With Meraki MV security cameras, ensure students’ physical safety at all times with security cameras that are exceptionally simple to deploy and configure and eliminate the costs and complexities that often come with traditional solutions.

Centralized Network Visibility and Control

The Meraki dashboard provides valuable insight into network usage. With integrated Layer 7 traffic shaping, classify evasive and encrypted applications, throttle bandwidth hogs, block unwanted web traffic with CIPA-compliant content filtering, and prioritize educational apps.

Meraki MR access points, MS switches, and MX security appliances are all managed in the same dashboard for increased network simplification.
