Jisc Framework

As Universities look to differentiate themselves with digital experiences, the role of the network has become integral to all aspects of campus learning and life. But, as the number of devices on campus increases, as IoT becomes mainstream, and as applications and data are moved to the cloud, the network now defines the edge to application digital experience. And, the network is always changing…

With over 20-years of experience partnering with some of the UK’s most progressive higher education institutions, and as one of only a handful of Cisco Global Gold partners, we are passionate about helping Universities in the UK be the best digital service providers in the world.

Working through the Jisc framework, our three-stage approach of "Advise, Adopt, Adapt" will help buyers maximise their investments in their infrastructure across the lifetime of the network platform.

Why Logicalis?

Why Logicalis?

In today's digital world, accuracy and relevance of a solution must now be measured based on its ability to meet the changing needs of a customer, not just what the customer needs today. The HE sector is continually having to re-invent its proposition to a changing and demanding student cohort. 

When we design an adaptable digital networking platform today, we take a long-term view of its value across its entire lifetime, recognising that in the new world of software defined networking, automation, integration, programmability, and intelligent security, the design of a network today must consider the digital strategy of our customers in 3 or even 6 years' time. In today's fast evolving HE sector this is now critical to the success of major digital platform investments. 

We work closely with Cisco's UK&I specialist team and leverage their resources when approprirate to ensure we are providing the most up-to-date and accurate information to our custoemrs. over many yeard we have maintained the closest of ties to Cisco's technical community, and we leverage this relationship to keep at the leading edge of Cisco solutions knowledge and capability. 

For over 20 years, Logicalis has helped our customers in the HR & Research sector develop leading-edge environments, working directly with Cisco on beta-products or pre-release technologies.

Our staff are therefore some of the most knowledgeable in the industry, and benefit from technology training, specialist vendor trainig, and strategic partner manangement that constantly aligns the vision and execution capabilities of Logicalis with that of both the vendor and the customer.
