COMMUNITY IMPACT PROGRAMS
Join Cisco Networking Academy and pi-top in connecting students with an opportunity to discover career possibilities in our fast-growing, digital economy.
At Cisco Live Melbourne, you’re invited to build a modular laptop powered by a Raspberry Pi. We’ll start with a shell, then assemble the different pieces to make the electronic connections needed to get a fully functioning laptop.
Assembling these pi-tops is fun, but it also supports local students. Our goal is to assemble 60 laptops that will be donated to Joseph Banks Secondary College, a brand new Cisco Networking Academy partner in Western Australia. Cisco Networking Academy is Cisco’s IT education curriculum that helps students build the skills they need to get jobs, launch careers, and start their own businesses. The program has the power to change lives. Nearly 11 million students have participated since 1997, including 2.6 million in Asia Pacific, Japan, and China. Learn More
The laptop donation will enable Joseph Banks Secondary College students to participate in a Cisco Networking Academy Cyber Skills Learn-a-thon later this year. Students will get introduced to cybersecurity concepts through an introductory Networking Academy course and earn a certificate of participation and digital badge. The school’s goal is to ensure that all students have a chance to participate in the event, especially those from an aboriginal background and underserved and remote communities.
Cisco Tactical Operations (TacOps) is a highly skilled and dedicated team that can mobilize and respond to natural disasters and other catastrophes when normal communications infrastructure have been degraded or destroyed. Trained to work in challenging environments, the team responds with the Cisco Network Emergency Response Vehicles (NERV) and other satellite-based communications equipment such as our Emergency Communications Kits (ECK) - during the acute phase of an emergency. The Cisco NERV vehicles are NIMS Type II mobile communications centers with advanced technologies to facilitate emergency collaboration and inter-agency interoperability. Priority for TacOps support is given to mission-critical public safety, government, and critical infrastructure customers.
TacOps support is offered free of charge on a best effort basis as a part of Cisco’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.LEARN MORE ABOUT CISCO TACOPS
