At Baylor University, the task of managing the infrastructure, including the network, falls to a dedicated team. They face the challenge of meeting students’ expectations for high-quality connectivity, akin to what they experience at home. This involves providing network services across a diverse range of environments, from classrooms and research labs to residence halls and sporting venues.

A notable challenge was the construction of a technology-rich stadium from scratch, requiring a robust network infrastructure that utilizes a mix of cellular, hardwire Ethernet, and WiFi technologies. The team values their technology partner, Extreme, for their holistic solutions and supportive approach, emphasizing the importance of a partner who listens and prioritizes meeting the university’s goals over mere profit-making.
