This network has allowed our teachers and students the ability to reach a wealth of educational resources
Rutherford County Schools in partnership with Rutherford County Government and PANGAEA has leased a state-of-the-art fiber optic wide area network (WAN) including 10-gigabit connections to three middle schools and three high schools and 1-gigabit connections to ten elementary schools and three administrative sites. This network along with the upstream link from PANGAEA has allowed our teachers and students the ability to reach a wealth of educational resources that before were almost unusable due to lack of bandwidth and network capacity. It also allows the students in Rutherford County Schools to access the many resources and educational opportunities that many other affluent school districts have had in place for several years. Our students now can compete with the students in those areas and be better prepared for higher education and/or the world of work (global economy).
