Jefferson College Builds a Network for the Future


When students come on campus at Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Missouri, they bring their devices with them – sometimes three or four. Combine that with the demands of campus operations, new classroom technology, multiple sports venues and a distributed campus covering more than 400 acres, it’s a perfect recipe for a challenging network environment.

The team at Jefferson College new they needed more than just the network for right now, they needed a network that would give them the capacity and functionality to support them for years to come.


  • Improved bandwidth for increasing number of student and faculty devices and new classroom technology
  • Uninterrupted connectivity across 400+ acre campus, including multiple sports venues and academic buildings
  • Future-proof solutions with capacity and functionality to support campus operations for years to come
"Right now, I don’t know in the next two or three years what’s coming down the pipe for different programs within our campus or what the requirements will be. But one thing for sure is they will need a network connection somewhere and now we have the capacity to support that. And I will say that, with our Extreme solution in place, I do sleep a little easier at night."
