The Network of the Future is Powered by AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to reshape the way IT organizations deploy and manage infrastructure and how users consume those services.

On the networking front, AI allows networks to be more predictive and intelligent, with the ability to automatically make recommendations and implement policies to save time and money and reduce downtime.

The IT department at Dartmouth College is on the leading edge of this movement, realizing that students learn best using a network architecture that is learning, too. Dartmouth's new AI-driven network ensures fast and reliable connectivity to key resources across campus, and it enables educators to incorporate the most engaging content into their lesson plans.

In this webinar, the CIO of Dartmouth, Mitch Davis, is joined by experts from Mist and Juniper to describe how AI-driven networks are boosting the user experience at the esteemed Ivy League college and the lessons that enterprise IT can learn from their implementation.
