A Mojo Customer Story: Knob Noster School District
Located in West Central Missouri, Knob Noster School District provides a distinctive mix between rural and urban settings. With 1,600 students and 225 faculty dispersed between four locations, Knob Noster maintains a commitment to high-quality education by identifying ways in which technology can be integrated into all functions for their students. Much of Knob Noster’s curriculum is based online, and when 2000 district devices are connecting to the network, a reliable WiFi connection becomes as vital as electricity to both students and teachers.
With the addition of WiFi Access Points to the Federal E-Rate program, Jeff Davis, Directory of Technology at Knob Noster, knew this was a perfect opportunity to upgrade to a more robust network, and do so within budget. After evaluating Cisco Meraki and Mojo Networks, Jeff decided that while the features between both vendors were similar, Mojo offered the best performance, reliability and security, all at a lower cost than the competition.
Deployment was a breeze, as Jeff and his team installed the first phase of 100 Mojo Access Points throughout four school campuses in 5 days, during school with ZERO interruptions! Before Mojo, Jeff and his team dealt with a myriad of daily networking issues including outages, APs dropping offline, or students and teachers being logged out of the online learning system. With Mojo Networks, Jeff’s team has cut their time spent troubleshooting to just minutes a day, giving them back 25% of their time to now focus on more important projects.
“With Mojo Networks, we have seen a dramatic increase
in performance, with little to no issues regarding the network. This creates a better atmosphere for students and teachers, while saving my team up to ten hours a week in time spent troubleshooting network access problems.“
