The Cisco Systems Network on Wheels is a 25-foot van equipped with the latest Cisco networking technologies. This unique showcase provides hands-on demonstrations of integrated networking solutions that are customizable to varied business sizes and needs.

Onboard, participants can take part in interactive demonstrations of technology solutions, including unified communications solutions, mobility/wireless solutions, network foundation solutions and security solutions.

Penn College offers two Cisco Systems associate-degree majors. Each major's curriculum is complemented by a series of courses and laboratory experiences from the Cisco Systems Networking Academy Program, which help to prepare students for the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification. Cisco Certified Network Professional classes are also available for those who are already CCNA-certified.
