Cisco Systems Ltd


Cisco has worked with educational experts and institutions for many years and has a dedicated team focused on the UK Schools sector. This has given Cisco unique insight into the requirements of educators and students, and the educational environment in the UK.


Cisco Systems is the worldwide leader in networking for the Internet. Today, networks are an essential part of business, education, government and home communications, and Cisco�s Internet Protocol (IP) networking solutions are the foundation of these networks. Cisco hardware, software, and service offerings are used to create Internet solutions that allow schools to transform learning and to achieve administrative efficiencies and academic excellence. The Cisco name has become synonymous with the Internet, as well as with the improvements that Internet solutions provide. At Cisco, our vision is to change the way people work, live, play and learn.


As children are growing up in a world where technology permeates everything we do, it is vital that the education process embraces Information & Communications Technology (ICT). The Cisco Connected Learning programme, provides models where ICT provides tools for teachers to transforms whole class teaching, models for personalised learning for individual students and models that save time and money by improving the efficiency of the education system.  Cisco believes that ICT should move out of the Computer Lab and permeate the curriculum and every classroom.


Cisco has developed a blueprint for educational transformation focused on key challenges such as academic excellence, administrative efficiency and safety and security. To help educators meet the fundamental challenges of 21st century education - to provide anytime, anywhere highly secure access to all resources - Cisco has a number of specific solutions:

Cisco Connected Real Estate (CCRE) for Education is part of the Cisco Connected Learning blueprint that helps schools provide highly secure access to all educational resources, anytime, anywhere. This allows building control systems for heating, ventilation, air conditioning, fire and safety, closed circuit TV (CCTV), lighting and other services to be managed over the same secure intelligent information network that is used for transmitting voice, video and data.  Integrating networks in this way allows schools, colleges and universities to reduce building capital and operational costs, increase safety and security, and support new services and amenities that enhance learning for pupils and teachers.


To help foster access to education and professional opportunities around the world, Cisco has founded the Cisco Networking Academy Program. By combining education and the Internet, Cisco Networking Academies help students around the world acquire the necessary skills for IT-related jobs and for higher education in engineering, computer science, and related fields-and ultimately, aid in the development of their countries and their local economies. The program has more than 11,000 academies, teaching 1.8 million students in 152 countries.
