The Jacksonville Jaguars find themselves in the playoffs after defeating their division rival, the Tennessee Titans, and are set to host the Los Angeles Chargers. Fans are in a frenzy as they scurry to the ticket website with the hopes of grabbing tickets to the playoff game and likely do not want to think of next season quite yet.

But don’t worry, Jaguars fans. This pertains to off-the-field matters as ConvergeOne, provider of cloud, collaboration and digital modernization solutions, is extending its continued partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars organization.

The extended partnership allows ConvergeOne to build a hybrid network with a high level of security to support the upcoming transition of the entire Jaguars' operations and networks into the Miller Electric Center, a 125,000-square-foot facility set to open summer 2023.

The solution is engineered and designed to create a seamless experience for all users under one roof by providing the organization with improved ease of management, heightened security and increased data creation/consumption at the edge.

For the in-house personnel, administrators have cloud connectivity, allowing them to have a single-pane-of-glass view through all their devices. Coaches and players gain access to coaching equipment within multiple virtual local area networks.

For the fans, they gain access to consistent and reliable high-speed Wi-Fi for a smooth experience. Game-day attendees are expected to have uninterrupted access to their devices no matter what they are doing on the devices. This can be from scrolling and posting on their social media apps to texting and accessing other websites and apps while enjoying the live game.

"By designing this new network in tandem with ConvergeOne, the implementation will have a better chance of success,” said Michael Webb, vice president and chief information officer, Jacksonville Jaguars. "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.”

The project serves as the central hub for the organization's infrastructure and all future developments because partnering with ConvergeOne removes that need to rip and replace outdated solutions.
