CISCO NETWORKING PLATFORM
THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE
SMART, CLOUD-MANAGED IT SOLUTIONS, UNIFIED BY A SINGLE NETWORKING PLATFORM, HAVE THE ABILITY TO TRANSFORM MODERN BUSINESSES AND THE WAY THEY OPERATE. ORGANISATIONS WITHIN ALMOST EVERY VERTICAL CAN HARNESS THE POWER OF CISCO MERAKI TO DELIVER BUSINESS OUTCOMES.
Let’s take retail as a key example. By using sensors in stores, location analytics can determine how long shoppers are spending in different areas and which sales are being converted. Knowing how many people are coming into each store, which stores offer the greatest opportunities, and what the chances are of converting footfall into sales is a powerful proposition. What’s more, by adding security CCTV cameras and data analytics you can make even more informed decisions – in addition to keeping employees safe in the workplace. Other key vertical examples include financial services, where smart connected banking and virtual financial advice can transform operations. And in manufacturing and construction, environmental sensors can be set up to provide early detection of things like water leaks, which have the potential to damage valuable materials. The possibilities are endless.

OPTIMISING THE MODERN WORKPLACE
Across almost all verticals, optimising the modern workplace is key. Here are just some of the possible benefits that can be realised with Cisco Meraki’s network platform and smart products:
ADAPTING TO NEW WAYS OF WORK
Using IoT devices such as smart cameras and sensors, you can monitor how desks and the office layout is utilised – and make adjustments to optimise the space. Are there any hotspots where people congregate? Are meeting rooms being used in the most efficient way, i.e., are just two people booking a 20-person space?
SECURING REMOTE WORKING
Client VPN solutions aren’t ideal when it comes to security. Cisco Meraki provides a reassuring alternative, delivering secure remote working from any location.
MEETING EVOLVING EXPECTATIONS
Different user personas have different requirements – and often use different devices in the home environment than they do in the office. With Cisco Meraki, it’s possible to see and monitor productivity and user experience anywhere.
GAINING CLEARER VISIBILITY
Today’s data scientists and developers have to work with a vast amount of data. Cisco Meraki offers visibility into what data resides where. Additionally, the platform provides visibility into which applications are in use and how efficient they are.
