The Indian School of Business, Hyderabad (ISB) signed an MoU with Cisco on Thursday to build India’s first truly digitally intuitive campus.

ISB’s digital campus is based on Cisco’s highly secure core network, unified voice, video, and wireless communications and lays the framework for connected campuses, empowered educators, informed administrators and students who will have the tools they need for success in a digital world.

“The digital transformation in the education sector is indeed a must to address the challenges pertaining to technological disruption. The future of jobs is strongly connected with digital transformation. We are excited to have this important MoU with Cisco,” Rajendra Srivastava, Dean, ISB, said in a release.

The framework will allow ISB to enhance the quality of teaching and learning. With Cisco’s Connected Classroom solutions students can understand how they learn best: anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Involvio, a student engagement platform is integrated with Cisco Webex and Wi-Fi solutions to offer a suite of tools and dashboards for better student engagement.

ISB can also enable higher levels of operational efficiency to campus administration and management, including smart lighting and connected vehicles, while allowing an in-depth view into building efficiencies, student behaviour, and security. Sameer Garde, President, Cisco India & SAARC, said, “We are delighted to collaborate with ISB to shape the future of digital education in India.”
