Bloomington, MN /PRNewswire/ - ConvergeOne, the preeminent services-led provider of cloud, collaboration and digital modernization solutions, today announced an extension to its continued partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars to build a hybrid network as part of their upcoming sports performance center project, one of the Jaguars' largest projects to date.
ConvergeOne's Enterprise Networking experts will build a flexible, software-defined, hybrid network with a high level of security to support the upcoming transition of all the Jaguars' operations and networks into the brand-new Miller Electric Center, a 125-000 square foot facility set to open summer 2023. The solution will be engineered and designed to create a seamless experience for all users under one roof – administrators will have cloud connectivity, allowing them to have a single-pane-of-glass view through all their devices, coaches and players will have access to coaching equipment within multiple virtual local area networks (VLANs), and fans will have access to consistent and reliable high-speed Wi-Fi for a smooth experience. Game-day attendees will have uninterrupted access to their devices – from scrolling and posting on their social media apps to texting and accessing other websites and apps while enjoying the live game.
The partnership with ConvergeOne will result in a scalable and modern, state-of-the-art infrastructure, promoting more real-time connections among people, devices and applications. The newly built high-speed, high-performance network will provide the organization with improved ease of management, heightened security and increased data creation/consumption at the edge. The project will serve as the central hub for the organization's infrastructure and all future developments, removing the need to rip and replace solutions.
"We trust ConvergeOne's expertise in Wi-Fi management because we've used them for several years as our on-site support for wireless at all of our major events. We know the engineers who work on-site on game day, and we trust them," said Michael Webb, Vice President and CIO, Jacksonville Jaguars. "By designing this new network in tandem with ConvergeOne, the implementation will have a better chance of success. It was a logical step to continue our partnership with them."
